    Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue pour Homme and just about everything else that has a grapefruit note.

    I love grapefruit but, evidently, not when it is on me!

    Diesel Fuel for Life. It smells like anise (very much) and a sweet candyshop in a bottle. With 9 positive reviews, 7 negative reviews and only 1 neutral review, opinions about Fuel for Life are almost as divided as opionions about Kouros!

    Kouros though, while being an acquired taste, is definitely more complex than Fuel for Life. Even if you hate Kouros, you can still admire the boldness of it. Fuel for Life is lacking complexity. It is just obnoxiously sweet with an anise note that goes on to annoy for hours and cannot be washed of.

    Yes, silverbullet - Kenneth Cole Reaction made me laugh. And I love the Kenneth Cole Reaction line - particularly the leather accessories.

    I appreciate all scents to some degree, but the one I don't like smelling for long is Diorissimo, which my wife adores. Death by sour flowers. Flowers should cheer one up or inspire thoughts of beauty, not thoughts of ending it all.

    Forgot to mention Beyond Paradise. Not only do I think it smells unpleasantly and strictly synthetic, it induces a terrible asthmatic reaction. (I know, synthetics have their place. Agreed. But here, they kill me.)

    I wouldn't enjoy this scent even if I wasn't allergic to it.

    I won't name a particular fragrance but will just say the many of the more popular niche scents on this site just turn my stomach. I can appreciate them for how well crafted they are, but they just stink!

    Agreed. I just got a sample of this last week. I felt like a cheap cab pine air freshener. And i couldnt get it washed off. I was dissapointed because I do like a TON other Lutens though

    Well, Secretions Magnifique is too obvious and deliberately noisome, so my choice would be the lung-worrying Jelly Belly: Blueberry Muffin Demeter fragrance.

    I know of three major offenders:

    1. Diorella by Dior - Floral with inflatable vinyl pool toys and composting grass clippings. Evocative...and yet almost gag-inducing.

    2. Pour un Homme by Caron - The shocking onion/armpit/hot-metal topnote ruins it for the boring vanilla base. Bizarre osmic comedy.

    3. S-eX by S-Perfumes - Green and animalic in the worst sense. The litterbox in the garden shed is days overdue for a cleaning. To my nose, far more urinous than Kouros.

    Dior Homme : It originally was love at first sight which turned too sour too early. Now, even thinking of Dior Homme's smell makes my stomach turn.

    Rochas Lui : WTF?

    I be another one to nake Kouros as a stinker. I've read someone described this frag as sex in a bottle so i rushed to a perfume store to give it a try. The smell of Kouros ruined my day. It's just revolting. Ditto to Opium by YSL
