    This is the first fragrance that jumps to mind, it is shocking, ville, pungent & smacks of bad taste.

    I know a lot of people are going to say Kouros, all though is might smell bad to me, it doesn't really bother me. The one that gives me a headache is L'artisan Passage D'enter.

    THE fragrance I hate is Grey Flannel.
    Others that I come close to hating are:
    Fahrenheit
    Black Code
    anything with that anise/licorice note----yuck
    I strongly dislike Allure homme
    I could go on and on but there are too many nice people here that may like some of them.

    So if I were to spray Joop on my shirt, it would smack and reek of bad taste simultaneously! *And that's a lot of bad taste!

    And as for me, I'll just say that Yves Saint Laurent has cranked out a lot of frags that suck to me. I don't know if I "hate" them, but... lord, they aren't good! (Except for PH & PH HC.)

    I've never smelled a fragrance that I hated.

    Default Re: What is the fragance that you hate?

    I don't exactly hate a lot of scents...but these come awfully close to disgusting!

    Le Male - I've smelled a small amount of people wearing this well, but the ones who baste it on made me think YUCK on this one!

    Pi - Ugghhh...NEXT!!!!!!!!!

    Coriolan - Smells like poultry stuffing...NEXT!!!!!

    4711 - This (two centuries old) clasic struck a bad chord with me and probably won't ever be received well by my nose. Smells (to me) like some spilled a spice rack all over the floor and covered the mess with citrus fruit peels! Pass.....!

    Regarding Kouros: I don't exactly HATE this scent, but it does not wear well on me. I first tried it 16 years ago and the only thing I got out of it was wood and honey! A few years after that, I tried it again. Same thing! Oh well. At least YSL got a hit with me out of M7!

    Dune pour homme... eugh!

    I have relegated my bottle of Dune to the "NO MORE BODY CONTACT... EVER" category.

    My shoes smelt a little pungent the other day, so I (foolishly) sprayed some Dune in there and put them outside to air. They smell even worse now

    Default Re: What is the fragance that you hate?

    Fresh maybe, but to my nose in a an unpleasant, pungent way:

    bad = Drakkar Noir, Azzaro Vetiver
    worse = Delon, Shogun and Best of Chevignon
    worst = Lancome, Miracle :exclamation

    They all have a common denominator - some undefined peppery spice I thoroughly dislike, or is it the vetiver? For me they smell like 4711 without citrus and lasting too long. Generally quite popular scents as the downtown tramway in the morning reveals.
    Maybe a Kouros lover like me is barred from the better things in life [smiley=embarassed.gif]

    This thread would be incomplete without a mention of A*Men.

    But in the category of truly repugnant, there are only two entries I've found:

    1) The aforementione L'Autre, which has to be somebody's idea of a cruel joke

    2) Crown Town and Country - as close to a litterbox as anything I've sampled.

    Relative to these two, A*Men is downright alluring

    Chaps - indeed drugstore smelling.

    Not upset, rather amused! Quite a sober taste you have, David. I must except Kouros,of course, and Boss #1 maybe, but can join you on the other male scents from the bottom of my heart! Concernig YSL Paris and L'Air du Temps: You do not wish to wear them, or you do not like them on girls either? Curious on what a person might appreciate who shares your dislikes, I went thru your earlier postings - and discover items I hardly ever heard about. Sounds interesting, will try and check those, if I can. Needless to say, I fully second your view on Azzaro vetiver.

    Kouros smells of urine to me. I don't mean it just smells bad. I'm not using hyperbole, here: I mean it smells exactly like pee.

    M7 makes me think of roadkill. (Okay, here I'm exaggerating a little.) But, seriously, I can't imagine why anyone would smell like M7 voluntarily.

    I dislike a lot of scents - Polo Original, Pur Vetiver, Oxygne Homme, cK One, Calvin Klein Truth (gee, I dislike a lot of Klein's output) - but the first two are just nasty. I really loathe them.

    Off the top of my head, these are the only 2 scents that really repulse me. I can see some merit in the other scents that I dislike, but these two are baffling. I can't even understand why they were created in the 1st place.
