    Personally, Joop! Fahrenheit is one of my favorites, though I'm not going to say anything... You just picked three favorites of the Basenotes clan, so I don't know how well received this thread is going to be.

    Question Re: What's the Cologne you Hate the most?

    Honestly, I don't have many men's fragrances that I hate, but there are plenty of women's scents that I do. I don't like Lavender in colognes, and alot of men's scents have that as a main note, or something that is too green smelling, other than that, I can't think of any particular men's scent I hate.

    P.S. It just so happens, that I do enjoy the one's you mentioned, but that is why fragrance is so subjective*

    easily Polo blue. I swear it knocks the wind out of me every time I catch a whiff. I'm seriously convinced it has the ability to defoliate when worn to excess.

    Most fragrances I find in some way pleasing even the ones I don't really care for. That being said, I don't like to be assaulted with sweetness or overpowered by florals. Some fragrances which come to mind are:

    - Joop! Homme (1989) by Joop!
    - Il Giardino (2005) by Michael Storer
    - Body Kouros (2000) by Yves Saint Laurent
    - The Dreamer (1996) by Versace (the opening anyway)

    I hate The Dreamer by Versace. They should rename it to The Crapper, because it smells like sh*t.

    This one's easy: Acqua di Gio. It's grossly overworn, and it smells so-so.

    Honorable mention: Joop! Homme. Eau de Robitussin, anyone?

    Exclamation Re: What's the Cologne you Hate the most?

    I'm not sure I hate any men's colognes, though Blue Sugar could probably give me a headache.

    The one women's perfume that I loathe (and oddly enough was mentioned on basenotes recently) is Jungle Gardenia. I'm talking about the original stuff which I think they quit making and I'm sure the factory had to be declared an environmental hazard. I'm not sure why the Army doesn't use it, it's a killer. In my teen years I worked for the phone company and a few of the women I was forced to sit next to wore the vile odor!

    Now, you have to deal with me directly, I'm the one that "mentioned Jungle Gardenia", are you kidding me? That is one of the most fab scents ever created, and I don't even like flowers. (especially gardenia) I wore that fragrance, and even my boyfriend at the time, ran out & bought it. It was so sexy, and intense. No really, it's okay with me if you don't like it, but don't say it had a vile odor, even Elizabeth Taylor knew that was BS. (was one of her favorite scents, and that woman knows what is beautiful) Sometimes the less said the better...lol...

    Are you talking about the original that came out in 1950? There is a newer one with the same name from 1995. I have not smelled that one. I wonder if they changed the formula? The 1950 formula is what I imagine someone like Ethyl Mertz would have worn!!! (not that there's anything wrong with that)!

    Thumbs down Re: What's the Cologne you Hate the most?

    Insensé Ultramarine


    WTF were the good folks at Givenchy smoking when they came up with this?
    My conspiracy theory was that they were working undercover to invent an underwater chemical warfare agent.
    Alas, they suceeded all too well.

    Naw, nothing comes close.

    Right! Thank you for reminding me that there is one I hate! That Ultramarine is awful.

    I'm down on Fresh Index scents as a whole. None of them speak to me as scents, but all speak as a wholesome, pastoral, blah I'm-a-natural-person advertising campaign. Too damn goodie goodie nicey-nicey. Total puppy love type scents. Get them away from me.

    I have to hate Dior Homme now. Can't stand its smell anymore.
    BUT: Nothing against members (i.e. a lot of Basenoters) who like this fragrance.

    Hate is a strong word. I prefer to say that there are several frags that just don't agree with me and my taste and skin chemistry.
    A couple I couldn't live with:
    FM -Noir Epices
    LV - Piper Nigrum (1st 2 hours kill it for me)
    Guerlain Vetiver
    Kouros
    Ungaro II (like a woman's ummm...privates, yes I have been there, but some time ago )

    You are too funny, yes that one (the original) I used to love it, it was very sexy, I got alot of compliments whenever I wore it. Truth is, I was about 20 yrs old when I wore it, and didn't have the knowledge then, to not overdo it. I guess I was lucky I was attractive & could pull it off. Now, I don't think I would like it anymore. My tastes have definitely changed, can't handle sweet, or flowery anymore. Ethel Mertz? I definitely didn't look like her, and either did Elizabeth Taylor.

    I don't think i HATE any colognes, but if you mean fragrances in general (male), i have to say that LeMale gets me very annoyed sometimes.
    To be fair, it's not really the scent -i still find it too peppery-sweet -, but the constant overapplication that some of the LeMale wearers seem to love.
