    Creed GIT -- A confused looking co-worker asked "are you wearing ... Aspen?" clearly meaning something more like "what happened? Prada suit and Gucci shoes left you with so little cash you could only afford some Aspen from WalMart?"

    Exactly. When my car was broken, I had to take the bus. This boy and girl got on the bus and sat behind me and the boy commented, "See, I told you people on the bus stinks". I was wearing Ultraviolet Man. I still like it though so I guess he is going to have to pinch his nose or something if we shall ever cross paths again.

    This comment really surprises me, as Vetivveru seems like one that should be universally pleasing. What is an old damp washing anyways??

    As for me, I've recieved a decent amount of negative comments. Well, I used to at least because I used to enjoy overapplying. I usually just got told that I wore too much cologne, or that my cologne was way too strong. Thankfully the positive comments have easily outweighed the negative, even more so lately now that I don't overapply anymore.

    Unhappy Re: Worst Comment (or reaction)Ever Received?

    Very recently (sadly) I wore Antico Caruso, and may have sprayed it on a little "too thick" and my wife and son both said it smelled funky, sort of like sulfurous eggs with sugar! They waved their hands around and suggested I wash that "terrible" stuff off!

    If they only knew how much I paid for that "terrible" eggs and sugar stuff, and how I struggled with the decision to make the purchase, wow! It makes me sick to think, especially since I REALLY like it.

    LOL!

    This reminds me of another comment. "Smells like bug spray." -A co-worker on Gucci Pour Homme.

    I've worked in a large hotel for a few years, so i've gotten lots of comments on my fragrances. 99% have been positive, thankfully.

    I posted this back on 4th November -- it still creeps me out to even think about it -- talk about Electra Complexes!
    "Strangest one I've heard yet: a woman came up to me one day after I'd put on bay rum (good one, prob. Trumper's). She ran her hand over my chest and seductively whispered in my ear, 'Mmmmm -- you smell just like my father.' EWWWWWWWW -- I was creeped out for days. She may not have intended to sound creepy in saying that, true, but it just freaked me out."

    Peggy: "Right now, we have to get to the mental institution. Something terrible has happened."
    Latrelle: "What?"
    Peggy: "Brother Boy has tried to kill himself. He jumped out of his bedroom window."
    Latrelle: "Isn't he only on the second floor?"
    Peggy: "Yes, but he hit his head on a lawn gnome."

    That's probably my favourite fragrance of all time!

    I wont go to those extremes, but Fumerie Turque is somewhat of a disaster when it comes to tobacco scents. What were you thinking, Sheldrake ??

    Wfoah - how do you get from soap powder to living with your mom? I don't see the logic in that conclusion. Because moms wash their kids mouth out with soap powder?

    "Whatever you are wearing smells like the clothes my grandma kept in boxes in the attic of her home."

    - My father speaking of Armani Code. This wasn't so much that it was negative, but I didn't feel comfortable responding with a "thank you" afterwards.

    "THERE'S A STINK BOMB IN THE ROOM!"

    - Kid sitting next to me in high school. This turned out to be a funny one. I put on CK Crave after gym class and had just sat down for my next period. As it turned out, a group of pranksters did actually set off a stink bomb in the room, but I misinterpreted the comment because the rank effects of the bomb hadn't entered my nose yet. To this day I'm cautious about wearing it, even though I believe it is pleasant (and synthetic, I know, I know), plus it generates compliments.

    - Liberally-applied Body Kouros in a crowded elevator/lift. Never again.

    Not really about the particular fragrance but the fact that I was wearing a fragrance the first place.

    Female friend: "Oh, have you finally come out of the closet?"

    Half-jokingly, though. (And no, I'm not gay) Fragrance was D&G By Man. Then she admitted that she liked it...

    Another one: "You smell like my grandfather". Although I doubt that her grandfather wears Bulgari Black layered with Dior Homme!

    I was wearing my Dolce and Gabbana PH one day and female acquaintance smelled me and told me I smelled gay. She knows for a fact that I'm not gay, but it was a wierd thing to say. Oh well, she was the only one that had anything remotely negative to say about my D & G.

    'Smells like cucumbers! What kind of cheap cologne are you wearing?' - on Kouros

    'That smells like some burning rubber!' - on Body Kouros

    'Oh man, that smells so cheap!' - on Egoiste Platinum.

    All comments by my friends. Though, I got some positive reactions to Kouros from girls!

    When I was in my teens (not too long ago) I cleared out a small store wearing Jungle Gardenia. While checking out, the sales lady yelled to one of the customers to leave the door open. I threw that stuff out and bought some White Shoulders, sat next to a guy my grandfather's age and he said I smelled like his grandmother. I have not worn florals to this day.

    Were you wearing l'Antimatiere?



    I think the only really negative comment I ever received came from my SO, so it's not a big deal. I can't remember exactly what she said, but she went on to great length explaining everything that was wrong with my SOTD and how godawful it was. That was CdG Odeur 53.

    That was almost a year ago, and I haven't worn it around her since then. Still, to this day, she will get very spirited about 'Odor 50-something' if I bring it up. Out of everything I own, it's probably the only one that she can recognize and name instantly.

    I once put on too much of M 7 (Yves Saint-Laurent). My father said, smiling: "I wouldn't be surprised if you got raped smelling like this."

    (My mother loved the fragrance.)

    "You smell like Nick Nolte!" That wasn't exactly what I was going for when I spritzed on some Bijon. Not a super compliment.

    "Did Pepsi come out with a cologne?" was a question posed to me after wearing Paul Sebastian (I guess I had that one coming).

    My boyfriend said I smelled like a 'cheap whore' when I wore A.maze by People of the Labyrinths.
