    Yes! A few but the standout is.....Creed's Bois Du Portugal. The family runs from it. I'm not sure what the cat thinks though....

    Yatagan!

    Oud !

    My colleagues find this scent absolutely disgusting (except the one living in Dubaï ) but my cats and my partner are mad with it ...

    Im with Evogel on this one. I love Bois du Portugal but my family hates it. So I can only wear it when I'm not going to be around them.

    Even Black aoud got more love after a few wearings.

    Miel de Bois, I used to love it, hardly anybody else did. Recently, I have started to share their views on it.

    Definitely Aramis 900. I've posted about this before. I really like it, but my wife won't come within 10 feet of me...

    I love Green Irish Tweed. My wife can't stand it. She hates the fact that I have so many bottles of it. She loves all my Creeds but that one. She can't believe Creed would put out such a "gross" fragrance.

    My girlfriend really doesn't like Dior Homme or Coney Island from the bottle. She hasn't smelled either on me but I've already told her they're safe from being sold from my wardrobe I don't know if I'll ever wear one of them if I'm going to be around her a lot when I have enough options that I know she loves.

    I can't say I wouldn't be able to go on without either, but I do like both enough that they're safe from the sale block!

    Black Aoud - My wife can't stand it...my friends look at me funny..even the lady in the elevator gave me a harsh look.

    But I still love it.

    A third problem with Bois du Portugal! My girlfriend hates it but I love it. Other than Havana, she also does not like any of my tobacco frags.

    My partner and a good friend I work with both hate Piper Nigrum, but it's one of my very favorites. (Yes, I know - another case in which a basenotes favorite is scorned by others. Maybe we need to start a commune!)

    Only Big K, the civet monster, is forbidden in our house. Wife hates it. Mice run from it. Cats want to make love with it. And dogs want to chase it up a tree. But ah luuuuv it. Mmmm, mmmm, good.

    There are days in my life when I just want to be alone, when I don’t need any kind of conversation, when I am sick of the people… on these days I wear Givenchy Gentleman… and I am pretty sure that no one will approach to me… even insects flee from me these days…

    My dog used to avoid me when I wore Bulgari Black. She was always much more friendly to me when I wore my boozy fragrances. In retrospect, perhaps she was a bit of a drunkard, that little beast. I sure do miss her.

    My soon-to-be-ex-second-wife hates 1881, but we're divorcing so I don't give a monkey's backside what she thinks.

    L'Huere Bleue edp, my husband hates it. I used to wear it to bed every night until he said "What's that god awful stench?" I left the room in tears. There's something wrong with the man, I swear.

    Not to worry....I purchased the parfum & guess what, no complaints.

    Several:

    Hammam Bouquet: My wife tolerates it. But along with Creed Millesime Imperial, it is my signature. She claims it smells like clean baby butt.

    Guerlain Vetiver: A scent my wife cannot stand.

    Polo by RL: Another one that I love, but my wife shuns like the plague.
