Thread: Most vile smelling thing ever!
Michael Kors Michael for Men. On me, it just smells like an alcoholic florist on a three day bender while arranging gardenias at a rubbing alcohol convention. And that's my good review.

I cannot stand the women's perfume Red Door. Just dreadful to my nose. When I was working at a low-level department store, none of the girls working the fragrance counter could stomach it either.
For men, I couldn't stand The Dreamer. I dunno if Sephora left an old bottle out, but I couldn't rise the stuff off fast enough.
Nasomatto - Silver Musk
Prada - Prada Man/Amber Pour Homme
Tom Ford - Oud Wood
A L'Artisan Cap (old or new style)
Clothing + Goodies for sale!
Secretions Magnifiques - its SO out there its worth getting a bottle. I am sure it will be a classic reference point for years to come, people will continue to talk about it, and once discontinued, will sell on eBay for hundreds of dollars!
realities for men reminds me of those little snake things from fire works stands that grow when you set them on fire. It has nothing in it that i can recognize as desirable in any sense of the word.
Fleur de Male

Bandit & Cabochard ... Both smell like rotting mouldy carpet with Bandit having extra burnt rubber notes !
think it depends on the skin.My late Mum used to wear cabochard and it smelled great on her whereas with some others,as yousay it smells vile
Wearing Vraie Blonde made me feel nauseous... can't imagine how vile a fragrance could be if ELdO actually TRIED to make it stink.
My standard reply to this question is always Diptype l'Autre (sorry, SixCats!). Smells like a New Delhi bus in late afternoon. Perhaps SM could knock l'Autre from its Throne of Skank, but I haven't tried it yet and probably never will.

I tested Habit Rouge and found it to be awful mix of pencil shavings and patchouli. Burberry classic was one I wanted to like, but the notes that sounded good didn't smell good together at all.
I don't know if it's my body chemistry or what but for me its:
Tabac Blond and Dzongkha

I agree with Fleur du Male and would like to add Mesmerize by Avon.
Azzaro Pure Vetiver.
As Vile as any commercial grade resurfacing agent.
Seemingly as toxic and dangerous as any industrial insecticide.
No vetiver here.
Here goes some more:

New Delhi bus in late afternoon huh, haven't done that in 34 years. Do you think if I tried that it will bring back memories ? LOL !!!
To my nose I could not stand Aspen, but I do know some people that smelled great when they had it on. Body chemistry guys , body chemistry.....

Secretions Magnifiques by Etat Libre d'Orange. I almost vomited. Quite horrible.

Clearly, none of you has experienced Eau de Fier.
Anyway, honestly I'm gonna have to say the worst one I've smelled was...Grey Flannel. I know it has it's fans, I just can't do it. It's stifling, it was to me the equivalent of taking a thick wool sock and sticking it down my throat just far enough to gag. Then leaving it there.
Caesars Man would be a close second, actually let me crosspost the relevant blog about it.
Caesars Man: Nuclear Freaking Deathbomb Posted on June 3rd, 2008 by Daniel
Ah, Caesars Man. You were almost my first online purchase, almost. Especially at $11 for a big olí 4.0 oz bottle. And in your immediate defense, you donít sound all that bad, with notes of Lime, Oakmoss, Sandalwood, Amber, and Musk. Imagine my joy when I spot you at the local TJ Maxx. $9.99 for the same 4.0 oz bottle! Iím sold!
And thatís where it all went wrong.
Of course, I canít be too much of a prick about this, at $2.50 an ounce itís the cheapest cologne in my wardrobe. The initial burst is even rather pleasant! Nice crisp citrus with the edges slightly rounded by the sandalwood base. And I love sandalwood fragrances.
Give it about 30 minutes though, and you start to see another side. That citrus note gets a little too sweet, almost rotten, and it starts picking up a new note, which to me smells like fir or mint or pine. Something in that area. And then the base vanishes. So youíre left with rotten oranges and pine (rotten orange pine-sol?), and this will be the state of affairs for the next, oh, 15 hours. On two sprays. And Iíd really rather not project this stuff, so of course itís one of the great sillage monsters of my wardrobe.
Or it was, anyway. I gave the bottle to my Dad as I knew I honestly would never wear the stuff again. He took it with him on a vacation to Florida. When he returned a week later, he took his shaving bag and tossed it up on the counter. About a minute later I started smelling something, and something not particularly good either. With a lurching suspicion, I approach the bag and the scent grows stronger. I open the zipper and see a puddle of Caesars Man in the bottom of the bag.
By the way, just so you know, itís a screw-top. And apparently it can work itself loose of itís own volition.
Our bathroom smelled like Caesars man for every bit of two weeks or more. I would choke on this scent every time I went into the bathroom. After a while itíd literally make me sick to my stomach. I donít really ever want to smell it again.
Bottom line: Friends donít let friends wear Caesars Man.
It's probably just me, but I thought l'Homme Sage smelled like an ash-tray, and yes it made me feel physically sick...
Vile? Has to be Guerlain's Vetiver.
I know people love it- It makes me sweat and shake just thinking about it. Yuck.
Go figure- I love Bandit.
