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!

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.

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.

0 or zero.
I am impressed by the results.
We want a niche forum.
Nobody cares about compliments now?? I chose 3 because I don't put it on for compliments, but if I get one, it can have a positive effect on my day.
Scandal Pour Homme
2 - I care a little.
