Which scent gets you the most compliments? Pt.2

I've been spending most of my year trying many different fragrances whenever I step out. This forum has been a real direction provider so thanks folks lol. Most of my compliments come from pretty popular stuff I guess. Ordering as best I can. Sorry for the lengthiness

1. MFK BR540 Extrait - . People have really gone out of there way to ask me about what I'm wearing with this. Pizza shops, malls, even got pulled aside at a funeral for this one oddly enough. There's a stranger in my face almost any time I'm out with this. A mask penetrator for sure lol. Its definitely my #1 for compliments by far.
2. Creed Aventus - Haven't rocked this much lately, but when I do there's a good chance someone will comment. I feel this is easy money on most folks.
3. MFK Amyris Homme - Most recent pickup. One of the few fragrances that I like on me as much as others do. Handful of compliments from coworkers and friends.
4. V&R Spice Bomb (original and extreme) - I've noticed the people that really enjoy this on me have made absolutely 0 mention of (or dislike) anything else I wear lol. The exception being #5. Most compliments for both seem to come from dates/interests. I wonder what it is.
5. Dior Homme Eau for men - see 4.
6. Paco Rabanne 1 million - I find most of my compliments with this come mostly from male friends or passersby, but it definitely performs.
7. Imaginary Authors - Memoirs of a Trespasser. Another recent pickup. The comments on it are very brief but positive. I enjoy it.
8. Prada Luna Rosa - Solid getter as well. Rarely in the mood to wear it though.
9. John Varvatos Artisan - was complimented a few months back in a grocery store where a woman pulled me in by the arm out to sniff again.

This year has been wild for me when it comes to compliments. I'm normally used to a handful of mentions if any at all. Ill take it lol.
Grizzly do you have similar comments on BR540 EDP?

I've only worn the EDP from a decant a few times, and got no real remarks on it. I like it, but It doesn't seem to last long on me at all. My ex once said she couldn't tell I was wearing anything, and when took a deep sniff said I smelled nice but also kinda waxy like lipstick lol.

Got an enthusiastic compliment from my girlfriend yesterday on Cedrat Boise who said it smells very masculine.

Today, I rolled down my car window and a worker at 5 Minute Oil Change standing 5 feet away complimented me on my "Y" LIVE. He asked what it was so I told him.

You know how kids say the best things, right?

One of my kids caught a whiff of Bel Ami on me (my SOTD at the time), gave me one of the best smiles ever and said 'you smell just like a daddy today'.

That's a genuine compliment right there! Treasure it (and them). I got a similar compliment from my young son around 18 years ago on Creed Tabarome Millesime. He was around 6 or 7.

My wife and son love my new ADG Profumo. I wore it yesterday and she picked it for me again for a party tonight.

Curious to try this Danny. Do you like it and if you owned the EDP - how do they compare?
I like it more than the EDP. The Parfum is stronger and smoother. Other than that, they're VERY similar to my nose. It's not necessary to own both, IMO, even though I do. lol

BR540 Extrait. First negative, and after that positive compliment in one day. From the same person. Weird fragrance. The oppening is pungent dentist office, latter it makes wonders I guess :)

OK i know I hardly get compliments and even posted a comment in this thread previously that I hardly get any. But twice in one week I got a compliment. One from a lady working in the gas station about 5-10 feet away saying I smell really nice which took me by surprise since I sprayed 3 hours earlier, and was so shocked I got a compliment that I did not know what to say but thank you.

The second time was from a platonic female friend of mine who was standing next to me in a bar and said wow you smell really nice and even wanted to smell neck.

Both times it was chanel allure homme sport eau extreme with 3 sprays.
