    Beyond a doubt it would be Terre de Hermes edt. It’s horrid, bleak and uninspiring.

    Habit Rouge edt. It’s a grandma fragrance and not even a good one at that.

    Platinum Egoiste. My wife asked me to scrub it off lol. The scent always put me in a bad mood.

    It has to be my chemistry. Probably the ISO E. I have tried and tried and it’s horrible on me. I have tried samples to. Even the Parfum is nasty.

    That’s probably appropriate haha. I wasn’t necessarily thinking of best sellers myself, just the worst I have smelled. I have cheap fragrances I would wear before any of the above 3. It’s all subjective though. My chemistry is a bit off lol so I’m probably the odd one out

    What's weird is some fragrances I despise other people enjoy, usually of a different ethnicity. I am sure Indian people would be more into spicier fragrances while I as a Caucasian Euopean would be more into chypres.

    Certain fragrances are more popular in one region of the world than in others. I don't think there can be disagreement there.

    This is a terrible take and you should feel terrible for making it. Racist much?

    Yeah, it's probably either that or my Scandinavian heritage that accounts for me liking perfumes that smell like herring more than my Hispanic neighbors do.

    I'm half German Jew and 1 quarter Scottish and Welsh each so that explains why I love Avon and perfumes that smell like a highland barn. Yeesh. XD

    That must cause a lot of tension with the half of you that wants to smell like pastrami on rye.

    Have you smelled the old Charles of the Ritz version, Trilby? The newer Revlon one is pretty vile.

    I would have liked Sharpless to clarify, in case there may have been a point in there, inelegantly expressed.

    Worst fragrance of all time? The worst fit of any I've tried was probably Guerlain Heritage. But it wasn't a bad smell, per se.
    Ah, I just remembered one that I simply hated: By Man (D&G). The statement it makes is something I want no part of.

    No, I haven't smelled it lately and won't voluntarily go near the stuff. Long ago, I had a boss who doused herself in it. I liked her but absolutely detested her fragrance. So sorry, Cook.bot!

    Can you give some examples of fragrances?

    Here's a link to a perfume documentary that was posted in an older thread about this topic.

    PE and TDH yea, it’s hit or miss both I’ve worn a lot and lost connection with them after a bit the few that that has happened with for me. Habit Rouge is more of a formal fragrance imo I do enjoy it and have a nice stash of it dressed up its nice imo.

    I know, and I’m not surprised. That said, it sounds like a disguised marketing speech to underline that there’s real ambergris. Unfortunately to my nose, it’s all about a fruity sweet cinnamon mess. No traces of ambergris. I wish!

    If looking for ambergris, I’d strongly suggest to go for Encens Mythique instead.

    You may have a point but he has been forthcoming about Guerlain’s use of synthetic ouds

    Oddly enough I haven’t given up on them. I used to despise Guerlain Vetiver and now I love it. Hoping my nose will change! Thanks for your reply. How many sprays of Habit Rouge do you wear?
