    It would have to be aramis Bermuda Tonic. I was trying to find a great summer scent last year and found this stuff. I like the scent, but 15 minutes of wearing it and it just starts to make me nauseous.

    That's a hard one, but I can narrow it down to two: Canoe and Aramis.

    Canoe because it's linear and unsurprising

    Aramis because it can be so overpowering

    However, I do like each in it's own place and mood.

    (I don't consider Drakkar Noir as being part of my wardrobe as I am actively seeking to get rid of it. To someone who won't wear it around me ever. )

    All of the unwanted Estee Lauder scents that I have.

    I got a gift set from a friend once with small (0.4-0.5 oz) bottles of Pleasures, Beyond Paradise, Lauder Men, and Intuition. None of them tripped my trigger. To be honest, they all suck, and I have the whole set up on the swap board.

    I'll take anything in exchange for getting rid of these stinky monstrosities.
    Top 5 for Winter:
    1) Straight to Heaven - By Kilian
    2) Back to Black - By Kilian
    3) M7 (vintage or Oud Absolu) - YSL
    4) Aventus - Creed
    5) John Varvatos Vintage

    If 'in my collection' means that 'the one which made me wonder what a stupid fellow I was' is the first Yohji in the tall glass. I fell in love with it in the shop, bought it immediately, and about the first time I used it, I felt deep sorrow and a need for soap to wash it off. I know lots of people love it, so did I

    In mine? Mont Blanc Presence. Blah, a nasty exhale of a scent. I wanted to like it because of its bottle (upside down bottle). I knew I wouldn't like it even, but when it appeared at Marshall's I thought it must have gotten better.

    In my Wardrobe? Hmmm...

    I would have to say that out of the bottles I own, my least favorite is Dunhil Desire Red. It is not all that great. Second would be Xeryus Rouge for sure, just because I've gotten so used to it and it gets cloying and smells plastic like to me. I don't like that at all.

    Opium. If someone doesn't want to buy it for cheap or swap for it soon, someone may end up getting a whole bottle extra in a swap. Or maybe I should make it a promotional thing, like buy $50 worth of decants and get a free botlle of Opium!

    Tef, I agree that Platinum Egoiste is booty. I don't get why it gets recommended so much around here! To me, the whole Chanel line for men from 1990 on is really questionable.

    The stuff used to make me ill. It was the only scent that's ever had that effect on me.

    BUT even worse than Presence is (drumrolllllllllllllllllll...) M7!! For the exact same reason. Makes me uneasy/ill/I feel like I can't breath when it's on or near me. And it's too sweet. Bleck.

    I never for a moment had the idea of buying it. There is something in the dry-down which irritates me.

    I'd have to dig it out. It's something an aquaintance gave me because I liked scents. It isn't that it's awful, it's just one of those linear designer frags that are so (putting on snobby scent-gourmet cloak) department store that it may as well be room freshener. Which is what I use it for when I run across it.

    For me BVLGARI BLV. I get quesy each and every time I apply it. Funny thing is that I am sure that I must have smelled it on others before I received mine. Now even smelling it on others illicits the same reaction.

    I'm still a newb at all this, so haven't experienced many sense outside of my own wardrobe, but of mine I'd have to third (?) Bvlgari Blv. It's not that I hate it, but the magic is definitely gone. There are some days where I seem to zero onto a talcum powder note - which isn't bad in its conception but, just... not appealing. That said, I'm quite happy to be holding onto it for now.

    Let's see, out of my current collection of bottles I would have to say it's close between L'inizio and Dolce Gabbana By. For the same reason. They are the absolute most feminine smelling masculine fragrances I have ever owned. One I received as a gift and the other I must have been incoherent the day I smelled it in the shop and thought I liked it.

    A night of binge drinking assured that I would always associate Bulgari with hangover. :-X I really like it still, but it makes me feel like I have a hangover as soon as I put it on. I've smelled a few scents on women that are almost identical.. One was from mac cosmetics, one was amore amore... maybe I will check those out as a possible substitute...

    In my collection Grey Flannel is one that I really have never liked (picked up a big bottle for $10 blind) or worn.

    I bought Bulgari Blu after testing it a few times, but now I get overwhelmed by the sharp ginger note and just can't stand it.

    Just because it happened to you doesn't make it interesting.

    Colours by Alexander Julian! It arrived in the post today, and all I want to do is put it in a wickerman and burn it! BLEURGH! Iris and flowers everywhere; it's like walking into a florists gone wrong, where all the flowers are really pungent and ming.

    I'm going to sell it asap as I'm sure there's someone out there who can offer it a good home. That someone is NOT me though.
