    Default Ever have somebody famous ask what you're wearing?

    Last week I was shopping at Publix in Land o Lakes, Florida.. and guess who was there, none other than John Cena who lives in Land o Lakes. I saw him in the parking lot and I shook his hand and asked for his autograph. He said he normally doesn't do autographs unless it's a WWE event, but he said he'd make an exception IF I told him what cologne I had on. He never actually complimented it, but he obviously loved it, and that alone was beyond flattering. What was I wearing? DHI, go figure. He was a very nice guy, and funny, we spoke for a little bit and he wrote down "Dior Homme Intense" in his phone. I told him it was a little harder to find and gave him some places where he could find it.

    Overall it was a great time, especially since I'm a big WWE fan. A lot of the wrestlers live in the Tampa area, so it's not uncommon to see them, but it is uncommon for one to compliment your SOTD!

    Ever had a celebrity compliment your fragrance or ask what you were wearing? Please share!

    Sorry, but the name didn't register immediately - had to check That's very nice. Just goes to show you - a good scent is appreciated by all sorts of people.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.

    I won a portable TV in a prize draw at my local Asda (Walmart) and had to go to the store to collect it. They had laid on a presentation by none other than Roger de Courcey. Once the formalities were over, Roger and I retired behind the scenes for a quick chat. He asked me what 'aftershave' I was wearing. It was Habit Rouge, but I didn't actually like him very much so I said 'Blue Stratos'. I left soon after that.

    Which intense were you wearing? The one from 2007 or 2011? I think there's also a 2014 version.

    So far no. But simply because the chance did not present itself yet, as I do not meet many celebrities in the first place.

    I got a 5 ml sample from someone on here I swapped with. I know it's not the original formulation. Not 100% sure when it was made though. I am not an expert on the reformulations, but I can tell you that I don't get much cocoa from it.

    He's featured in the latest Muscle and Fitness magazine and seems like a really good guy. Good marks for loving his Dad and kids he helps.

    One of my best friends came to visit me in Atlanta last year. He had plans to meet up with his ex-girlfriend for lunch and wanted a spritz of something from my collection. I had a bottle of Montale Black Aoud then so he put on two sprays and went on his merry way. When he got to the restaurant his ex (who works as a caterer for some local celebrities) had brought the R&B singer Brandy to lunch with her. My friend said Brandy went crazy over his fragrance and kept sniffing his neck all afternoon. She even wrote the name of it down so she could get her then boyfriend to buy some.

    I did get a compliment once from a famous person - I forget which one, but it was a musician of some sort. IIRC, the SOTD was Terre d'Hermes (EdT, in the days before the parfum).

    That said, I have met many famous people who haven't asked. These include Buddy Guy, Anthony Edwards, and Jim Sinegal (the co-founder of Costco).

    Cool story, but I don't think John Cena is gonna have a hard time finding DHI Prob text the name to his assistant/agent/publicist/whatever and they will have a bottle(s) for him the next day.

    A former UFC fighter that trains with my old BJJ instructor complimented me once as I was leaving the gym. Don't know if you'd consider that famous though.
