    For me, compliments are a rarity, but it was probably an employee this past summer that complimented me on Pomelo Paradis.

    Try Note De Yuzu perhaps.
    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 on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    Invictus aqua, aventus, and a tie between jpg le male superman and Sauvage. I get awesome reactions to Eros during summer too even though it isn't a summer fragrance.

    Dior Homme Cologne
    Bergamote 22
    Original Vetiver

    I just recently bought Neroli Portofino Acqua and haven't gotten compliments yet, but I could see this one doing well in the summer.

    Mugler Cologne got my sole compliment
    1. No, never blind buy (I do, but do as I say, not as I do. I'm taking no responsibility for your fragrance gambling).
    2. Get them both. You're a Basenoter and you know you're going to end up purchasing them both eventually.
    3. Yes, it has been reformulated.
    4. Looking for a signature scent? You've come to the wrong place.

    I don't get compliments too often but my most complimented fragrance is Sauvage.

    People here hate on it but it works.

    In the recent past , a colleague complimented me on encre noir sport....and another occasion when I was wearing Acqua di Gio essenza ...
    But compliments are or rather shouldn't be a criterion for selecting a perfume as many of the best smelling perfumes which have a huge reputation doesn't get any and that kinnda sounds jarring to me if I use compliments as a criterion so I don't buy based on which I'll get more compliments on !

    Compliments are a rarity for me but that's not why i wear fragrances. But i did get some positive feedback when i was wearing Aqua di Parma Colonia Essenza this summer.
    It's one of my top fragrances for summer.

    I wore 3 scents a lot this past summer:

    Invictus Aqua
    Carven L'Eau Intense
    Prada L'Homme

    The most complimented of that group was Invictus Aqua. My favorite of the group is Carven L'Eau Intense. And the best one of the group, and one which I recommend most often, is Prada L'Homme.
