    Even with the release of the newer Parfum version, the EDP is still the best-smelling cologne of the Dior Sauvage lineup.

    Walked into a coffee shop and over to the counter. Barista says you smell great! What can I get you? She was wearing a mask so I was surprised to hear that.

    "Your cologne smells very nice" said a young lady checking me out of the dental office. I painfully managed a weak but appreciative "Thank you." I figured Chrome Extreme would be unobtrusive yet it still did its job!

    Terre d’Hermes eau tres fraiche from a much younger female co-worker. She said it smelled like a day at the beach. I couldn’t agree more.

    Got the first compliment ever from a girl who works at a local coffee shop that I've frequented for a couple of years now. Throughout that time I've worn a number of my favorites -- He Wood Silver Wind Wood, Prada Luna Rossa Black, Fahrenheit Absolute, Bulgari Extreme, Eau Des Baux... never so much as a peep from her.

    The thing that finally got a compliment? Nautica Voyage. Go figure.

    Today I went to see my Mom at her memory care facility..she’s on the back end of Alzheimers unfortunately. As I was signing in one of the nurses walked up and said “there can be only one person that is smelling that good. That has to be you.”

    I'm sorry you're going through that. I'm glad that Gucci is working for you. It didn't click for me, but everyone has different chemistry.

    Thanks Chuck. Really appreciate it. It’s been going on for years but last couple have been brutal.

    Believe me I’m as surprised as anyone. I thought this would be a “one and done” scent. My wife and kids pick good stuff but I thought this wasn’t up my alley. Surprisingly has really clicked. Like you said everyone’s different. Just glad the family enjoys it too

    So maybe Guerlain Cuir Beluga is stronger than people have been led to believe? First time wearing from my bottle, only had sample(s) before I think.

    Had a coworker come back into the office and said she could smell it by the door... I applied it around 6:10 AM and she commented at 11:20 AM or so, so roughly 5 hours.

    I did roughly 5 - 5.5 sprays (with 2 - 2.5 of them under clothes to torso) as I kind of assumed it would be a closer to the body type of scent.. I guess not? lol. Lesson learned?

    Was walking around today when a motorcycle approached me with a couple on it. They stopped and said ‘you walked by 20 minutes ago as we were eating and my girlfriend was dying to know what cologne you are wearing as it smells soooo good she wants a bottle for me’ I was wearing Mancera Instant Crush

    Definitely! In the mids-dry down I get a nice clean sweet chocolate note. The dry down is also where I've gotten a few compliments.I wish the chocolate was a bit stronger in this one though but its there and its apparently very noticeable in the sillage

    Great scent. Definitely seems like it would be a compliment magnet, especially on a woman. A little goes a long way!

    Two unsolicited compliments at the weekend:

    - First one was for Creed Viking Cologne which I had applied a few hours before (say 3?).

    - Second was for a good dose of Chanel Platinum Egoiste - more than 10 hours after I applied - I couldn't smell it by this time but others clearly could. Current bottle.

    Got one yesterday unsolicited. Mother in law was asking who smelled good at our outdoor Memorial Day cookout. Interestingly, she asked and smelled some of the ladies to see if it was them first before realizing it would be me. Prada L'Homme L'Eau.

    Aside from the obvious Sauvage and Bleu de Chanel that I get outrageous responses from the girls I'm dating. The one that surprised me was Molecule 01. I would get consistent compliments from girls I'm not dating. The comments are always something smells so good, fresh, clean. One asked if I just got out of the shower because I smell so fresh and clean, despite not showering for 24+ hours that day, and being a greaseball, when she gave me that compliment.

    So I recently just told my compliment story 2 posts up but I have to tell another one right away. Ive gotten another compliment again with my BR 540 extrait. Went into the bank 30 mins after application, my cousin (bank manager) was able to tell I was there because she could already smell me from the second floor ( i was downstairs) where she is having her lunch. Yup, the second floor !!!������. 5 hours past, went to starbucks, the moment I arrive at the counter, not 2 seconds have passed, the barista said I smell good. The barista wearing mask and being behind the protective plastic barrier ( for covid thing). Now Im truly amazed. I used to be a skeptic before when I was still reading stories about baccarat rouge extrait on how it garners compliment all day. Now Im a believer. Worth it. I also could detect the extrait better than the EDP that I also have as well. Guess ill be buying it on a regular.������

    3 sprays. One on each inner elbow then one on back of the neck. The perfume has been with me for just 5 days so Im still experimeting on spray count. Will try just 2 sprays tomorrow (on 2 inner elbow and skipping the back of the neck ) then observe. Ill do my best to make my 70 ml last bacause its too expensive to finish up quickly. Do you own the extrait as well? have a story? thanks

    No, I do not own it, but I've tried it and enjoyed it. I'm surprised that 3 sprays got you noticed as much as it did!
