    I had a soured bottle of Creed Green Valley that made my stomach twirl. It started out nice enough, but ended on a wet leather shoe note that was simply atrocious.

    Too much Old Spice makes the tummy tremble. And Tea Rose by Perfumer's Workshop is beautiful, and I really enjoy its smell, but it gives me a headache after about an hour.

    I have what I condider an irrational dislike for Luten's Miel de Bois. It doesn't smell healthy to me and I've tried two or three samples, all with my exact same violent reaction. I can't tolerate it's presence long enough to make me sick.

    This one. I honestly feel sick just looking at the picture. I keep a sample like the one shown, in its box, in a drawer in the spare room and I swear I can still smell it when I go in there. I'm keeping it for practical joke purposes only.

    When I smell the cap and top notes of chanel goste, don't know if it's bad memories related, but if I was about to vomit, I wouldn't want to smell goste in my case..
    and salvator dali's pour homme makes me feel quite uncomfortable as well, the stuff is quite evil lol (but maybe the old bottle has gone bad though)

    That's kind of funny actually, as I find Reflection to be the repulsive one from the Amouage line. Made my head hurt from it's excessive sweetness (literally).

    Platinum Egoiste
    Domenico Caraceni 1913

    I quite like both of these scents but more times than not they make me nauseous. I was thinking it might be the geranium note they supposedly both share but others containing this note (Rive Gauche PH for one) don't have the same effect. Could it be a particular aromachemical they have in common?

    It's funny that a post above mentions Domenico Caraceni 1913. That smells almost exactly like a funeral home mixed with a hospital. I hate it, and I could see it making someone sick.

    The only one that has physically made me sick to my stomach, and it does every time I try it, is Michael Kors. The scent is good except for one note that turns my stomach. Terre de Hermes also has this note and nearly makes me sick too. But Michael Kors does it instantly.

    There are some fragrances that I believe I have a chemical sensitivity to when not applied very sparingly, it's a shame, because these I love the scent of: Rose 31, DC 1913, Ambre Sultan, Santal Imperiale.
    Then there are some that I have this chemical sensitivity to and I can't stand the smell: All of the Montale fake aouds, especially Black Aoud.

    To me, the common denominator that makes me physically sick is over-application.

    • Xeryus Rouge - powerful stuff, I can almost taste the scent
    • Rochas Man - really sweet when oversprayed
    • Chanel Egoiste - strong harsh opening



    I like them all and wear them on a regular basis, but I always have to remind myself to be careful with the sprayer.

    ELdO Vraie Blonde. For reasons that are mysterious to me, I wore this as my pre-shower scent today, knowing full well that it always makes me nauseated. I figured I'd give it another try (for about the twentieth time), but I got the predictable result.

    I Love New York for Him by Bond No. 9 made me nauseous after just one spray on paper. I immediately threw the paper away. Unfortunately, the smell was still in my mind for quite some time. Can't imagine anyone liking that fragrance.

    Givenchy Xeryus Rouge once made me sick the first time I wore it. From then on, I went easy on the trigger and didn't have anymore problems.

    Abercrombie fierce and Hollister's cologne.

    It's less the smell itself than a sort of Pavlovian conditioned response. Years of malls being flooded with the stuff + the general type of people associated with the smell makes me a little queasy.

    Sex Appeal by Jovan makes me walk around with a really sour expression.


    Apart from that, I quite enjoy difficult and off putting scents.

    Cartier Declaration is the only fragrance I've ever scrubbed off. That cumin note in there was absolutely nauseating, made only worse by the fact I had to drive home from the mall I sprayed it on to home where I very quickly scrubbed it off

    Platinum Egoiste is one of my favorites but the first 30 mins or so gives me a massive headache, not sure what it is about the topnotes that does this. It's the only fragrance I can think of that gives me a headache and it does so every time without fail

    Also One Man Show has the worst topnotes of anything I've ever smelled

    Same here as well, l'Eau d'Issey is an instant headache although I can appreciate the fragrance. Feu d'Issey is nauseating to me, I do not understand its cult status at all. While JPG's Le Male doesn't make me physicially, I get so "fatigued" smelling it I have to wash it off. Again, appreciate the genius of he scent, but can only take so much.
