    Default The one you cannot stand

    What fragrance is the one that u dislike the most?
    In my case I hate the smell of plasticine it makes me sick to my stomach and the fragrance that always reminds me to plasticine is Le Male Jean Paul Gaultie. It was tragic when it became so popular because I had to undergo many moment of torture having to smell plasticine on many people.
    Seems the trend of le male is fading away and I don't have to suffer it anymore but definitely that is the one I really cannot stand

    John Varvatos Vintage. I've never gotten a headache from a fragrance before. Got a sample of this a couple years back and INSTA headache. So bad.

    I have two: L'Eau d'Issey and 212 by Carolina Herrera. The latter is probably the worst of the two.

    Up till yesterday I could have easily said Ava Luxe's Rasa Extreme. The first time I tried it I was assaulted by a diaper-filled compost heap smell that made me wretch and run to wash it off.

    After nearly a year I got up the guts to give it a try it again. I put a minuscule amount on... the diapers threatened murkily for the first ten minutes... then slowly a rose note emerged, and the fecal note disappeared to be replaced by a rather robust but quite pleasant musk. It stayed in rose musk mode for a good eight or nine hours before fading to a mild ambery musk warmth. I can still smell it faintly at hour fourteen.

    That was my never-ever-oh-dear-god-no fragrance. Now it's in my good books, albeit still in the freak category. Go figure.

    I can't say I have any other fragrances I really hate. Honestly, I'd rather have a lot of fragrances I hated than what far too many do - bore me.

    L'Eau d'Issey, only because it's the only fragrance I've worn that makes me sneeze and gives me headaches...

    Growing up where I did,I thought I could tolerate a vast array of unpleasant odors, but Comme de Garcons Comme de Garcons and Hascish Homme were 2 frags that had me sprinting for a scrub brush and water. Both are malignant and should be used by our special forces when interrogating prisoners.

    Not as bad but equally intolerable is Krizia Moods on my skin.

    Caron pour un Homme. I just dont get it; to me it smells like lavender essence, then vanilla cake batter. Thats the only one I can think of. Nothing else I've smelt yet has truly 'repulsed' me!
    Actually - maybe the top notes of Giorgio (womens).

    That truly is very descriptive language. It gave me an image of North Philadelphia on a humid, August afternoon.

    There are some frags that I really hate, but subsequent sniffings let me discover why other people would like them.

    However, Sécrétions Magnifiques is the no-brainer answer.
