    I'll go 2, as I'm not really bothered, but do like getting compliments.

    My wife actually hates some of mine. I've stopped asking her opinion before I buy stuff now

    But really, I don't care if I get compliments as long as it is pleasing to others. Nothing is worse than being the only person in the room with fragrance that is choking everyone out. It is hard to say "I wear fragrance for myself and not for others" when people start covering their nose as you approach.

    Wear fragrance for yourself!

    Like Dior Leather Oud? Wear it to the church, to job interview, to meet your future father in law! WEAR WHAT YOU LIKE!

    Complements from others are always nice, but I complement myself all the time.

    Ha, quite pithy when you use the word "complement" instead of "compliment"

    I didn't quite know what to vote. I Loooooove compliments -- I value them, and in that sense they're very important. In another sense, I wear what I like, compliments or not.

    - wife needs to like scent - but not not always critical
    - pretty ladies complements are nice to get

    But other than that I need to like the scent - its my money

    I voted 2. I find i get alot of compliments, but thats never why ive liked the fragrances in the first place, ive only liked them because i have liked them..

    I wont pretend its nice though when people compliment, it shows the effort you make in presentation is appreciated, even if its coming from people you dont no. Its much nicer when it is someone meaningful like a partner or family/friends though...

    Compliment
    A compliment, with an "i," is a kind or flattering remark. If a guy says he likes your dress, he’s giving you a compliment. He’s complimenting you.

    Complement
    A complement, with an "e," is a full crew or set, and when something complements something else, it means they go well together. You might talk about a picture frame that complements a photo or the crew complement needed to operate a ship.

    1 more or less: I rarely get compliments but I still like smelling good!

    I do have one very distinctive scent I like to wear on dates. I've had women recognize it half a decade later when we meet again....

Maybe it sparks a conversation and you can hook them up with a sample and hopefully get them addicted I hook up my friends and work with samples all the time. Not because they give me compliments, but because they show interest in the hobby.
    pretty much the same!

    Uno 1 one, it's nice when compliments are garnished but don't need them...
    "Thank GOD for the nose, for without it we would not be enjoying these beautiful created Scents" also Remember "Balance is everything and the key to appreciating "

    Originally I didn't think it mattered at all. The more I thought about it, I realized while I am the type that wears cologne for my own personal enjoyment, I do care if the wifey and child like it or not. Secondly, it does seem to put a little pep in your step when you get a compliment....which I don't get much of because I'm not a heavy sprayer(1-2 sprays usually and I get whiffs all day long). So I went from zero to maybe a 2. I know there are scents that I like that wont be natural compliment getters, but if they make my day that much more pleasant that's what counts.
