    Default Nauseating Frgrances

    Hey base noters,

    I was wondering what fragrances that you guys have encountered that either irritates your skin, make you sick to your stomach, or itchty? I've noticed tha Cologne by Mugler gives me a guaranteed headache whenever I smell it.

    My cryptonites are Caron puH, Cannabis Santal and Versace Dreamer. They upset my stomach for a reason. I tries Bois Farine a couple of times and each time I coughed terribly.

    A.maze by People of the Labyrinths made me itch after a few hours - however I was testing the Eau de Parfum (some strong sh*t!)

    I am going to have to agree with the Axe and Versace Dreamer choices. They can be quite nauseating. I will add Lolita Lempicka (at times) and evern Chergui, when it is not the right atmosphere for such a thick and rich fragrance. My last choice will be Xeryus Rouge by Givenchy.

    Eternity for Men is nauseating for me, even when applied lightly -- hits my head and my stomach.

    But I think it's good for evey fragrance enthusiast to have a "kryptonite," as phantagarow puts it -- it helps us be more understanding towards co-workers and others who might have the same problem with a scent we love.

    I have to REALLY be careful when applying Kouros...one spray too many is too much.

    As always, disregard most of what I say. It's not worth your heart health to actually worry about what a 23 year old guy from Kansas thinks. Even if he is really ridiculously good looking.

    Caron pour homme and Jaipur which share a bergamot top note. I'm staying away from bergamot altogether now. I wretch when I smell it.

    Bandit EDP turns my stomach 10 min.after application.
    L'air du desert marocain and Jean Pascal Pour Homme irritates my skin.
    But that doesn't stop me from spritzing them on my hair and clothes, in fact LDDM is in my all time favourites.

    Guerlain Vetiver.
    Wore it on Saturday and it made me wanna puke. OK maybe it was the hangover. Anyway, I am now trying to get rid of it on ebay (the EDT not the hangover).

    Thierry Mugler's A*men. Put some on a paper strip and left it somewhere in the bedroom. Had to wake up in the middle of night to dispose of it, I just couldn't stand the smell.

    This certain synthetic sweetness turns my stomach. Rochas Man, Ted Lapidus Pour Lui and several Hugo Boss fragrances for example.

    Wow, am I the first to mention Joop PH? That was always my most hated (male) fragrance, although I know it has a lot of fans. I was surprised that someone said Eternity. I have another unpopular opinion: I bought YSL's Kouros (the original) blind and just did not care for it at all. I used it for an air freshener just to get my money's worth but never wore it. I had the same experience with Trump.
    Incidentally, I've never met anyone, male or female, who has liked the female versions of Cool Water or 360 Degrees, but I digress....

    Creed Tabarome Millesime... I usually love the Tobacco-note but something goes horribly wrong with Tabarome on me, if it's my skin chemistry or something... It's just a sour stench on me when I've had it on for a while... Quite nauseating!

    One of the frags that I physically can't apply is A*Mugler, my skin and nose don't seem to tolerate it for some reason...

    For me, it's Joop! Homme and Eternity for Men.

    any serge lutens perfume layered with another serge lutens perfume would lead to loss of appetite and hospitalization.

    I like Prada Man, but, I found out if I wear it too long it really hits my stomach. And, amazingly, GFT, which is in my regular rotation and it is one of my favorite colognes, but, again, it does make me a litte queezy...must be the lemon note.

    I cannot stand to have Very Irresistable or Trussardi L'Uomo on my skin. They both smell disgusting to me.

    The Dreamer made me naseous when I had it. Burberry Weekend was a headache-inducing chemical mess. Also Michael for Men makes me queasy for some reason, which is a shame since it's a nice scent other than for that.

    Other than those, I actually enjoy almost everything else.

    There are plenty of smells I don't like, but none has yet made me nauseated or given me aches of the head or stomach.

    I haven't found a holy grail scent yet either, so I think it's a fair trade.

    I must be careful with famous 'oriental' fragrances, like Musk Ravageur, Jaipur & Habit Rouge. Sadly also, I cannot wear more than a drop of Antaeus. They all have caused me to need lots of oxygene as an emergency, at least once !

    Others that have been mentioned but I don' care for anyway: Xerius Rouge (love the Black though), Mugler Cologne, Iquitos, The Dreamer, Dior Homme, any Tauer, Joop Jump, some feminine Lutens (particularly Fleurs d'Orangier and Citronnier and (always!) Tuberose.

    The other extreme: citrussy colognes are proven life savers for me! Too bad they don't last!

    Men's fragrances that make me wretch:

    (might be the association with the guys I knew who wore them)
