    Default have you ever received a funny comment on a frag?

    This happened a couple of times to me within the past couple of months, all of these comments came from my boss.

    I was wearing Spicebomb, she came into my office and said it smelled like cinnamon in here.

    I was wearing MJ Bang, and she said it smelled like pepper.

    Today I am wearing Rive Gauche, she said it smelled like licorice. I mentioned that my cologne had black licorice sen in it, but she said it smelled like Red Vines. I just thought that was funny and figured I'd see if anyone else had gotten funny or strange comments.

    When I was sampling MKK, my wife came up to me and said "What's that? You smell like camels balls! "

    Funnily enough I was just smelling a powdery floral, I must be anosmic to the musk in MKK!

    My friend was convinced I had been smoking a pipe, but really I was just wearing Tobacco Vanille. He couldn't believe that what he was smelling was actually a perfume.

    You should have replied "You say that like it's a bad thing!"

    The camel balls comment had me rolling. I am not sure if I would wear that one again after that!

    Just shows how the heavy musks can be picked up differently by different people! Although she did say she liked it in a 'sleeping in a Mongolian yurt on a fur pelt' kind of way. So it got a tentative thumbs up in the end.

    unfortunatly most of the comments i get on fragrances are negative or are neutral..like "are you wearing cologne?" or "what smells" or "who are you trying to impress, your not on a date"
    14 sprays of DRAKKAR NOIR should do it

    A 13 year old boy told me that my cologne smells "expensive", when in fact it was just a $25 Guess Marciano for Men. On a separate occasion, a girl in the same age range mentioned to her friends that it "smells like waffles" when I walked past by them.

    While wearing Maison Francis Kurkdjian Oud, I've received two strange comments. Someone said it smelled like one of those cheap scent cards you put on your car rearview mirror. And someone else said it smelled like shit, like literally...

    I love it though...

    Not a funny comment per se, but here's a funny situation that happened to me a couple of years ago. It needs to be said that I live in a place where people don't usually comment on a person's fragrance, regardless of what they think of it.

    15 minutes after spraying A* Men, I meet two male friends at a bar.

    Friend #1 (with a disgusted look on his face): WTF is that cologne you're wearing?
    Friend #2: Oh yeah, it smells terrible. Is it even designer? (Like that's a sign of quality :P)

    Fast forward two hours or so... I'm in the back seat of a car with an attractive 20 year old woman, and both of us are slightly drunk at this point. She unbuttons my shirt slightly and buries her nose into my chest, constantly telling me how yummy I smell.

    I think I'll go with the female opinion.

    Story time! So, a group of friends and I are meeting up to watch the Hobbit at its midnight premiere at an Imax theater. My group of friends is a little...different...so they had all their kids dressed up as characters and some of the adults were too. I, of course, had a glorious beard and shaggy mane of hair going on because I play a character actor for our local Renaissance fair, but didn't want to dress up.

    Well, one thing led to another and I was running late after getting home from work that night, so I quickly changed into a pair of jeans and a flannel shirt. The cologne of choice wasn't well thought out either and I sprayed what a couple shots of Slumberhouse Norne on myself. By the time I got to the movie theater it was raining and my girlfriend had forgotten to put an umbrella in our car so of course she borrows my jacket to shield herself while I soak to the bone. We finally make it inside and join our group and the literally first comment out of my best friend's wife and others was, "You look and smell like a lumberjack.". Being a smart ass, I replied with something like, "Well, someone needs to cut down the disgusting Elves forests.". Of course not realizing that there were three little girls all dressed up as elves who in turn start crying because of my mean comment. Parents are laughing, children are crying, my girlfriend gives me the Look of Shame, it was a good night.
