    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.

    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.

  12. #12

    Default Re: On a scale from 1-5, how important are compliments to you?

    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.

  13. #13

    Default Re: On a scale from 1-5, how important are compliments to you?

    2-3 in my case, they may not be the main reason for wearing a fragrance, but they are surely welcome.

    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'll bite. I do put forth a certain image, and it is important to me, but how do compliments from others come into play here? I think I look good, and smell nice, and that's really all that matters to me. Other peoples opinions don't factor. I've never had a compliment on my hair, but that doesn't change the way I choose to style it. Never had a compliment on my lawn either. Do you get compliments on your lawn, and are they important to you? If I never got another compliment again, it wouldn't bother me at all, therefore, compliments are not important to me.

    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.

    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.

    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.
