Look no further than...
...I was going to go with the "American Idol" cologne (and perfume) line, but then I came across this:
Cruise by Carnival Cruise Lines.
"Launched by the design house of Carnival cruise in 1996, CRUISE by Carnival cruise is classified as a flowery fragrance. This masculine scent posesses a blend of: crisp notes of wood and moss. It is recommended for casual wear." -- description courtesy of every discount fragrance website trying to ditch this cologne.
You have GOT to be kidding me. I can even find justification for the American Idol line, but a cologne for a cruise line?
...and it's been around since 1996?!?!
Look no further than...
Looking for: Andy Tauer - L'air du Desert Morocain & Incense Extreme
Check out my NEW Aussie sale / trade thread here -
Surely the most bizarre perfume marketing campaign is Humiecki and Graef's Skarb, which is <a href="http://nowsmellthis.blogharbor.com/blog/_archives/2007/11/17/3359068.html">supposed to "capture the state of 'how men cry'"</a>.
Never sniffed it myself; it seems to have received positive, but mixed, reviews.
Mickey Mouse Cologne for Men by Disney
What the F?
PVC and Leather. A Chain and a feather

Current Top 5:
Tabac, Cardinal, Brookes Brothers, Musc Kublai Khan, Andron
Come on guys!
Two of the worst of all time have to be anything by Jade Goody and "Mwah!" by Chanelle from Big Brother ( the one who is desperately trying to be Victoria Beckham).
Donald Trump. One of the only Lauder scents I have ever seen discounted. They can't seem to give it away.
Niche wise, Etat Libre D'Orange, Secretions Magnifiques (spit, sperm, blood, other stuff)
Troy McClure's Smellen of Troy
This was actually in a very early Simpsons episode and I'm surprised it wasn't made. Maybe to honor Phil Hartman... hey it could happen!.
What about the one by the World Wrestling Federation?
Beverly Hills 90210 seems like a silly concept to me. (I hear it smells good, though.)
I've got a bottle of "James Dean" the fragrance. Someone sent it to me for free. I've never worn it. I thought it would be a good one to nominate for this thread but there are so many worse ones you guys have already listed.
I'll have to wear it all the same.
That girl, that bottle, that mattress and me.

I think the ad for Britney's new perfume is pretty awful. The words Britney Spears and elegant DO NOT go together. She is a pretty piss poor inspiration for a scent. And yes, I chose my words carefully there.
The Hulk. Seriously, who thought that was a good idea?
There is a whole range of cartoon & comic book fragrances, from Sponge Bob to Spiderman, but my vote goes to the Desperate Housewives perfume.
Sniff and let sniff.
The worst inspiration would have to be the inspiration that inspires so many designer fragrances: GREED!
The inspiration of this fragrance seems to be blow jobs. Not that I in any way object to getting a blow job; just never though as I was receiving one how it would make a great fragrance:
Don't Get Me Wrong Baby, I Don't Swallow by Etat Libre d'Orange
In all matters of opinion, our adversaries are insane - Oscar Wilde
All I have to say to this is Bye Bye Bye

Vulva, I can't imagine the smell of this would turn any straight women on....but who knows....maybe after a few drinks it may.....j/k
Michael Jackson Cologne
How scary is that bottle.
The MJ is worse than the AS. You couldn't pay me the $500 to wear it!
Taxi, by Cofinluxe.
These are all brilliant, and as completely inappropriate as Elvis Presely Wine, whose label boasted the slogan: "Of course, Elvis didn't drink wine, but if he did he would have loved Elvis Presley Wine!"
No. 1 worst: Hummers
No. 2: Mens' Tears (Skrab)
