one, don't care at all
When it comes to collecting/wearing fragrances, how important is getting compliments?
1 being "I don't care" and 5 being "its very important"
one, don't care at all
Me no care.
I wear fragrances for myself and not to please others.
It is nice to get compliments and being asked what I am wearing. But It has zero importance, I wear fragrances' because I like to smell good!
Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals don't warrant or deserve other individuals' acknowledgement or respect.
I wear fragrances primarily for myself and don't get a ton of compliments. When I do though its usually the opposite sex and a nice bonus so I picked 2.

Nice and appreciated? 5
2. (2.5 I suppose)
Of course it's nice. I mostly wear fragrances for myself, but come on -- people who say "not at all" -- Really? I don't need an actual compliment, but I try to put forth a certain image. While not the same as a compliment, putting forth a certain image is important to me. For the people who say not at all, are you just trying to be cool? Or is it only with fragrances that other people's perception not matter at all, or is it a general "I don't care what the world thinks of me" attitude with everything (clothing, hygiene, hairstyle, lawn)? I'm not looking for actual compliments, but it is all part of an image. I guess I assumed people who aren't interested at all in a personal image wouldn't spend much time on a fragrance website.
Yeah - I suppose that is about right.

I voted 1.
In general, if it's a compliment from someone I don't know personally, such as a stranger or co-worker, then I don't really care. If it's from friends & family, I enjoy getting them, but still not that important for me.
2 because it's fairly important that my wife likes my scents. Other than her, it's not that important. They're 75% for my personal enjoyment.
2-3 in my case, they may not be the main reason for wearing a fragrance, but they are surely welcome.
While compliments are certainly nice, they don't factor into my decision of what to buy or wear.
Important? - Voted 1
Appreciated yes, but its not important to me.
2. I wear them for my own enjoyment, but it's nice when someone smells one they like and offers a compliment. 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.
I would say 3.
It's about a 5
One - Compliments aren't important to me when it comes to fragrance.
Probably a 2.

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.

Gym scent of week: A*Men Pure Havane
My gym hates me
Complements from others are always nice, but I complement myself all the time.
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...
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.
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....
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.
