    Default Most vile smelling thing ever!

    I am curious to hear from others on this.

    What, in your opinion is the most awful thing (fragrance) you have ever smelled?

    For me, there is no question about it...Hypnose by Lancome is vile. How could anyone enjoy it? This stuff could be used in place of smelling salts to wake up football players that got a concussion. If this stuff could cure cancer, and I would rather have cancer . IMO of course.

    The first thing that comes to mind is Dirty English by Juicy Couture.

    That B.O. note is really upsetting to me.

    I second Secretions Magnifique by Etat Libre d'Orange. No contest, really. Dirty English, Hypnose, anything else that you may feel "smells bad" smells absolutely wonderful compared to that nausea inducing "perfume."

    At least Lancome and Juicy Coutoure are trying to smell good, Secretions is not trying to smell good at all.

    Oh, and for a BO/Cumin note - try Eau d'Hermes. The "dirty underpants" odor is strong.

    I've never smelled SM. Sounds like they should change the name, eh?

    Most anything with opoponax in it disgusts me. Ligea by Carthusia was just depressingly sickening to me.

    Actually, the most vilest thing I'm smelled was Mambo for Men by Claibrone tied with 212 Sexy Men

    I third Sécrétions Magnifiques. After having the misfortune of spraying some on my hand, all the previous scents that I'd classified as bad went up three notches to the "very good" category.

    I described my experienced in this thread.

    I can't describe why it's vile to me, it's just an instinctive gag reaction that I have to it - which I'm not alone in having. But some people do like it.

    Still every scent has it's uses. This scent could be useful during the questioning of suspects.

    I think Secretions Magnifiques is going to be a clear winner here.

    In the interests of furthering the discussion can we keep it to fragrances that are, actually, trying to smell good.

    The fragrance which to this day still has the biggest Yuk! factor to me is A*Men.

    Good point. I find it unimagineable that they made Secretions Magnifiques with the intention of making it smell good on someone. Relative to Secretions Magnifiques, scents that I don't think were meant to be worn, like Demeter's Laundromat, suddenly seem quite wearable.

    I wore A*men today.

    Secretions Magnifiques--smells like what I imagine to be a dirty, bloody crime scene
    Yatagan and Tauer Incense Rose--sickening church incense scent
    Dirty English, Caron Pour un Homme, Acqua di Parma Colonia Intensa--nose-searing ammonia

    I second Lipstick Rose by Frederic Malle. I also happen to think that Intimately Beckham for him is pretty potent.

    I don't find it all that bad actually...just a salty floral/coconut combo. It does have a bit of "wet dog" in it though...I would never buy a bottle given that part.

    You can get it at Henry Bendel in NYC.

    Just 2 days ago I tried Hypnose and actually liked it. If the bottle weren't so ugly I probably would have bought it. Funny.

    That's the one I was going to post!

    I bought a bottle blind (thankfully for $10), smelled it once, wiped the vomit from my chin, threw it away the next day!

    Looks like I have to find a bottle of Secretions Magnifiques though! Anything with as many vile reviews here has to be sampled at least once!

    For me it's Brut by Faberge.

    I understand it was a lot better before it was reformulated.

    Wow, this "blood accord" sounds.... interesting. Who would ever think to include such a thing? Anyway, since I haven't smelled that particular one, I'm going to throw my vote in for the perfume "Design". I'm not even sure who makes it, but my mother in law absolutely adores it and truly considers it one of her best perfumes. It's just sickeningly sweet almost to the point of being vomit inducing, and it has a longevity like you wouldn't believe. It just will not die. *fullbodyshudder*

    Oh dear me yes it was. When I found some discontinued calvin I was immediately reminded of the old Brut but it's more like a cross between the old and new Bruts.

    Oh well the new one is ugly.

    I agree. That stuff smells seriously bad, and it tops my most vile column.
