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

    I was on a flight from Charlotte to New York yesterday and for some reason, as we began to descend, I broke out my Tricorn and dabbed a little on my neck. The people in the row behind me blurted out, "this plane smells like baby powder!" Not so bad, but I don't think Tricorn smells anything like baby powder. Airplanes are a bad place to share sillage. Lesson learned quickly.

    --------------------------------------
    I kind of answered this on the "whoops" thread, BUT...1.) I was asked to leave a Health Food Store, manager hated my scent.
    2) wore too much patchouli to a doctor's office when I was 15, and made the people in the waiting room, sicker than they already were. Alot of nasty remarks.
    3) wore something and my ex husband leaned over and sniffed me & said, "you smell like bug spray", and it definitely confirmed to me, why we were divorced.
    4)Whenever your in a crowded room or place, and someone says, "what's that smell?" you know, it's probably you, and I just laugh!
    5) I have quite a few others, but who the heck cares, what those idiots say. I never comment out loud to anyone, I keep the negative responses to myself.

    Alot of people don't wear scents, and if they do they're really subtle, so when you wear a unusual or strong scent, chances are people are gonna notice, and unfortunately, say something nasty.

    A female friend said I smelled like rat's poison, after I tried Hermes Un Jardin En Mediterranee on my wrist. I still liked the scent though.

    Yeah, yeah, everyone's a critic. The one making the comment probably had breath that would stop a charging rhino!

    Any-who....what a funny thread!!

    My wife didn't like my Gucci PH; said I smelled like a gerbil cage.

    The only other reactions are sort of neutral, like "Wow, I can really smell your cologne." Hmmmmm, is that an insult?

    Duncan, it is rather on the negative side of response, I guess

    Alicka, yes, I suppose you're right, but if there's not sillage or projection I would think it a waste of time to wear.

    now, I will love Kouros until I shrug this earthly plane, despite a gal friend blurting out one night at the movies "it smells like a drunk bum pissed himself in here."
    Her tastes, however, run to things like essential oils and other such hippie pursuits. Another friend, a classy and sassy investment manager, thinks it smells divine. I'm inclined to agree with the latter.

    Well, I think one thing I think we've all firmly established is that taste in fragrance is absolutely subjective, while trends and standards exist, e.g., most people don't seem to mind lilac and lavendar. Although it's strange many people conjure a men's restroom when they smell Kouros. One thing is for sure, however, if someone tells me I smell like a rotting corpse or a cesspool, I won't wear that around them anymore.

    My mom told me that my cologne smelled "cheap... like Aqua Velva". This was strange, since she complimented me on it several weeks earlier.

    The scent in question? None other than the Basenotes fave Terre d'Hermes. Not surprisingly, once the bottle was empty, I didn't replace it (even though I love the stuff).

    Sadly, it was me with Chanel Cristalle EDT.

    Hmm...so many that are well liked and recommended by many BN'ers are also those that smell disgusting to others.

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

    Oh, I've posted on this before. It's a toss up between

    1. " You smell like a gay man's a******e !" (Fragrance: Muscs Kublai Khan)

    This was from a lesbian film director. Being straight, I took her word for it, though I've often wondered----how would she know?

    2. " See, now you smell great!" --From my current ex-gf. The fragrance?

    Nothing. She claimed my varying frags 'made her confused.' Even though we only saw each other aprox every two weeks. Personally, I think it was just so I wouldn't compete with the Issey Miyake EDP that I got her for Christmas.

    What the hell, she once asked me " What is that cheap stuff you're wearing? "

    It was BdP.

    Cry me a River,

    My co-worker wore kouros the other day, and everyone said he smelled like burnt hair covered in dog poop. Oh wait, thats what kouros is supposed to smell like! :-)

    My SOTD that day? Lalique Equus EDP. Still love it and wear it, btw .

    Another time i got the "someone reeks of cologne" thing after one-too-many sprays of Tuscany Forte.

    Yours? C'mon, fess up!
    The worst reaction I ever received to a frag was with Musc Ravageur, believe it or not. My partner smelled it on me and said "You STINK, please go wash that off NOW!" I ended up selling the bottle about 2 years ago, and I regret it. I just bought Renee Musk which smells almost exactly identical, so I'll wear it when I'm not around him : )
    Current faves: CdG White, Amouage Dia, Millesime Imperial, Miller Harris Terre de Bois

    I smell a strong play-doh note in Ambre Sultan too. I was wearing it once, and two other people said the same thing.

    I have just spent 85€ on a bottle of Musc Ravageur and was told by a colleague of mine that I smelled like a bad deo.
    OK, I overdid it with 4 sprays.. As it was the first time I wore it I didn't really know how powerful that stuff is. I spent 10 min in the toilets rubbing my chest and neck with soaked napkins and it didn't help much

    Shortly after my father-in-law passed away, I got into bed and cuddled close to my wife, still wearng some Parfum d'Habit from the evening. She turned around and told me "You smell like my father."

    Great. Incest and morbidity all wrapped up in one.

    Not exactly the worst, but yesterday I had applied one spray of L'air Du Desert Marocain, and as I was going out my dad said it smelled like someone had smoked pot, and that the smell reminded him of his youth....
