    Most likely, in no particular order: mass market- Avon Black Suede Touch, designer- possibly equal ranking between Boss Bottled and Gucci Envy for Men, niche-perhaps surprisingly Knize Ten

    I have a heavy rotation of different scents, and have hardly received any in my lifetime. But I'm a charisma-desert, so perhaps that's the reason.....

    A female housemate did say I smelled good, but I'd just tested 3 different fragrances. I'm fairly sure it was either Murdock's Black Tea or Armani Code Profumo. The latter certainly seems like a safe bet for those who believe in the existence of fragrance compliments.

    Over the span of my life, probably Gengis Khan, but compliments have very rarely come my way as a rule.

    Let us just say that my Creed Aventus has more than paid for itself with the reactions I've gotten!

    Aventus by a landslide.

    Such a shame that its becoming so popular and common place though as I've caught trails of it in the most unlikeliest places but hey, its still awesome.

    People react by giving you money???

    I would probably pay people not to wear it as well

    Ermengildo Zegna Javanese Patchouli.

    One colleague recognised the patchouli immediately.

    I've been quite surprised by the number of compliments I've received for this one.

    I'd have said Murdock. I get great compliments from both the girls and the guys. Actually, several guys have gone and bought Black Tea after smelling it on me. Cedrat Boise, too, gets me a lot of compliments.

    Compliments are very rare, but I have received a few for Terre d'Hermes and Dior Homme. My wife gave me Givenchy Gentlemen Only and loves it, so that's my #1 [emoji3]
