    Cool Most complimented Niche -

    I did this one before on the old browser but now I cannot seem to find ANY of the posts on it anymore....Im still trying to get all of my posts back and reviews from the older website, but if you guys could humor me and give me your top 2-3 most complimented NICHE fragrances, I would greatly appreciate it...And YES, I know you guys on BN don't typically wear scents for anybody else but yourself but I'm sure you occasionally get compliments whether warranted or not...

    And Please NO CREED'S Fragrances...I have plenty of those....

    Thanks again for your help !

    And I'm trying to get use to this new updated site but thus far, not liking it too much...

    Yep I sold it...Too "Oudy" for my liking and I didnt really get any compliments from wearing it....including my wife...So, yes, that one is out....The Parfum d' Nicolai seems interesting but not really into POWDER scents...I heard this one might be a little powdery on the dry down...Can you elaborate on this one more ?

    I remember the oud issue u had - i pm'd u on the mona di orio oud - i'm telling u again - try it - it's oud is tamed but of very high quality. buy a sample - don't buy the FB, it's 500+...

    As for NY - no, i don't find it too powedery - but try b4 buying, new juice is relatively weak, powederiness we get might vary by our skin as well.

    Also exclude Malle's POAL off my list - it's a b'ful floral, which again might not be to your tastes...

    New Haarlem is pretty high on my most complimented list--but you should know that I often do not wear many/most other niche at school, so my answer here is "biased"

    edit: also Noir de Noir

    My wife enjoys Bleecker St and Straight to Heaven and I notice those two are somewhat frequently commented to get compliments.

    Not the "usual suspect", but a quite efficient even if unlikely compliment getter: Knize Ten.

    Other complimented niche fragrances, at least according to past discussions, impressions shared firsthand with other fragrance fans, positive feedback etc.: possibly also Tom Ford Black Orchid and Tuscan Leather, Penhaligons Endymion.

    From left field for me and perhaps not something that appeals to the wearer at first spray. (Which means give it multiple tests on the skin.) But after many wearing I will report that every time I wear Opus VII I get several complements. Wears like an old school mens fragrance but lacking the middle floral notes and never cloying. Very green at the opening and a delicious finish. A new favorite.
    Some Favorites
    1. Amouage Epic man
    2. Dior Leather Oud
    3. Perris Monte Carlo Oud Imperial Black
    4. Le Labo Patchouli 24
    5. Amouage Opus VII
    6. Byredo Bullion
    7. Masque Milano Russian Tea

    Interestingly enough, the most complimented niche I've experienced has been Heeley Cardinal.

    Not counting Creed, I would agree with this.

    +1 for Green Irish Tweed (GIT) by Creed

    Absolutely the most unprompted complements I have gotten from any cologne. Everything from 40 something yoga super cougars, to 21 year old girls, to the dude at Taco Bell asking what cologne I was wearing cause he wants to smell like me. I am 38 if that gives any frame of reference.
    Top notes of... sweat, gasoline, motor oil; a heart of deer musk and gunpowder, resting on a base of sex and testosterone... Mandom.

    If you are wary of New York, you can try Bois du Portugal instead, not powdery at all.
