Piss (Kouros) & Petrol (Fahrenheit), not necessarily in that order.
"I exist for myself, and for those to whom my unquenchable thirst for freedom gives everything, but also for everyone, since insofar as I am able to love - I love everyone. Of noble hearts, I am the noblest - and the most generous of those that yearn to give love in return. - I am a human being, I love death and I love life."

Aqua de Gio is hated for what it has come represent: a kind of bland unadventurous conformity. I reallly can't imagine that most people would actively hate the actual smell so much out of context and if it weren't all over the place. Fragrances like Kouros or Yatagan are both loved and hated and I think are kind of respected for at least being uncompromising in some way. Joop is just so sweet and goopy, tough to take for more than a few seconds, that I think most basenoters just plain hate it. This, in spite of the fact that it really is pretty uncompromising stuff.
Joop! definitely has its detractors. Kouros is a love-it-or-hate-it scent, with many
noticing the urinal cake note.
Those around long enough to remember DJ Badger Kelly will remember his loathing
of Iceberg Fluid Man.
Unforgiveable has had many many detractors, not because it's a bad scent [it isn't],
but because it is a blatant rip off of Creed's Millesime Imperial.
Though many like it, I must say that The Dreamer ranks right down there for me.
