    Out of my collection everytime I spray either 1 Million or Dreamer I am guarantee a good compliment (so far). I get a few good compliments with aventus but for some reason not as much as I get with those other two.
    Thank you, deadidol

    I like Aventus, and frankly, hesitate to post in these threads as to not want to be part of the hype, one way or another, about it. Yet, during my last work trip to Latin America, I received several unsolicited complements while wearing it.

    Quite a few have gotten more compliments from products like Curve, Bond No. 9 Cooper Square, or lately Creed's Original Cologne.

    Personally, from my entire collection, Aventus is the most complimented.

    The only that come close are:

    Straight to Heaven
    Bleecker Street
    Spice & Wood
    1 Million
    LDDM

    I've never received a compliment from a female while wearing Aventus. Not even one.

    I have received plenty of compliments wearing my others.

    Very easy; most designers got me more compliments than Aventus or any niche; example La Nuit De l'homme, Curve, Curve flankers (Soul, etc), Cool Water, Tommy Hilfiger, Dior Fahrenheit

    I've never gotten a compliment with it. Someone noticed I was wearing it and asked if I was using a new cologne, but that's about it.
    My dry woody scents, on the other hand, seem to get the most. 2 Man, Tam Dao, Songe D'Un Bois D'ete.

    There's a guy by the name of Pluran who responded to a similar thread from earlier. I think he will have some sage advice on this topic.

    Nothing I would say gets more compliments than Aventus, but some get equal amounts. I recommended it to a friend and he gets more compliments than me. Like it or not, the stuff is gonna grab attention

    Everything. Aventus smells shitty on my skin. I got hated by this one. And I didn't like it either.

    My wife likes Kouros, that's the only female compliment I'm interested in but Issey Miyake is the one that gets the most ... by a country mile.

    Aventus is the biggest pile of over-hyped old bollocks it's ever been my misfortune to smell and quite frankly the more fanboys flock to it the better.

    Judging by the girly hysteria on here, it will eventually become too popular for the pretentious Basnotes masses and they will find some other ridiculously expensive tat to spend their money on in a bid to show everyone how terribly sophisticated and refined they are.

    24 gold gets reactions every single time i wear it.

    Most of the reactions are compliments or women asking me where can they get it for their husbands.

    And if it's not a compliment or question what am wearing, then it's this : "I smell some sweet incense, anyone else smell it ? ".

    Funny because 24 Gold doesn't have incense, but i believe it's the sandalwood, flowers and vanilla combo that gives it that semi-sweet smokey impression.

    Never worn Aventus, so I do not know much comparison with/in relation to this fragrance. But speaking based alone on my wardrobe, usually fragrances like Gucci Envy for Men, Rochas Man and Boss Bottled clearly stood out among the most complimented.

    Bentley for Men Intense is one.

    I could toss an immesne list of things that would work better than Aventus but I strongly believe none of them would be approriate for a fragrance-related forum.

    Pretty much most anything for me, but the biggest heavy hitters that come to mind:
    Curve
    ADG
    L'eau D'Issey
    Le Male
    1 Million
    Hanai Mori HM
    L'Homme

    To a lesser degree:
    The One
    La Nuit
    Joop Jump
    Mont Blanc Individual
    360* Red
    I Am King
    Voyage
    Black XS
    ect, ect, ect!lol

    I know Aventus is typically reviled around here, but it does garner compliments more than other brands I've wore. I'm still new to the field, but so far Aventus got this girl cashier to gush and tell me I smelled good, then again "you smell SOO good."

    +1 for a Aventus.

    I do not own a bottle of Aventus, hence I cannot compare. From my collection, I have received many compliments on Midnight in Paris, Spicebomb, Dior Homme Sport, Bleu de Chanel and Virgin Island Water, among others.

    Closing this for awhile as many alternatives have been mentioned, some nastiness was provided for no apparent reason(unless some members are only here to disrupt a site they do not like), and someone are saying a Lamborghini Aventador is going to get more complements than Aventus, when in reality only a Bugatti Veyron will do so.
    btw- a one week vacation for the member who has continued his nasty ways.
