    To me it smells like used french fry or donut oil. Maybe the TPC ladies are decanting an older bottle that has turned? Not awful but weird.

    My personal box of hate would be full of Gray Flannel, Caesars Man and Creed Original Vetiver.

    Montale Attar gives me headaches pretty consistently.

    Annick Goutal Petite Cherie actually made my nose bleed. Stuff's got some teeth.

    I agree on the caesars man. That stuff is horrendous!

    I remember just lightly sniffing Sécrétions Magnifiques and recoiling in horror with such a loud "uh!" that the SA actually came over and asked if I was ok...
    Tom Ford Splits!!!! - Tobacco Vanille, Tuscan Leather, Oud Wood, Noir de Noir - PATCHOULI ABSOLU
    Plum Japonais, Italian Cypress, Neroli Portofino, Costa Azzura, Azure Lime, Champacca Absolute

    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window.

    I don't really loathe or hate any scent except maybe Poison of which, even a tiny spritz gives me a headache. And one other nearly gives me the same reaction: Very Irresistible. But nothing else I have ever smelled has ever seemed vile or worthy of the title "the worst." Cheap? Sure. Poorly made? No doubt. Not for me? Absolutely. But a violent reaction? No.

    Surprised no one has mentioned the now out-of-production, L'Autre (which I love). Used to be the least favored scent here, next to the big K.

    Quite right, mon ami. Insense is indeed French for insane.
    However I maintain Givenchy's Insense Ultramarine would be too nuts even for Gallic bipolars. It is underwater chemical warfare.

    Though I dislike Amouage Gold, A*men, Le Male, Kouros, Eau Sauvage Extreme, Quorum, Old Spice, M7 and Joop! None come close to the stomach churning wtf? reaction I get from this turkey. Besides there's a place for each of the other in perfumery.

    ES Extreme teaches us how a Concentree version should NOT be made, Old Spice why a woman's scent (1937) which bombed can succeed if vigorously re-marketed for men as an adventurous macho scent. Le Male, aka " Alone tonight sailor? " Teaches how success can be achieved far cheaper by-passing any pretensions of machismo. And Amouage Gold? As long as you're going to bottle synthetic crap, just charge a ton of $ and play the I'm-more-niche-than-you game. Hats off! That's pure genius.

    I'm not sure what Joop! has to teach us, and I'm not certain I'd like to know. Quorum I described as 'crotch in a bottle'-- Indeed it's hard to find a frag that makes Drakkar Noir layered with Brut look subtle by comparison, and while I feel that Kouros would be the kind of soap I'd expect to be handed by THING in The Addams Family bathroom, none is as expensive as Amouage Gold, and--

    --All appear to be Holy Grail scents for many BN members.

    ( See Geir, GIT, BdP, Laguna. Prada or whatever catches your fancy.)

    Well, why not? Live and let Live . . .

    I don't understand the hate for Fahrenheit. I never really liked it, as I was often unsure whether the ' Check Engine' warning had lit up on my dashboard but if memory serves, it wasn't really that bad. Was it?

    One last thing: I used to think that hell was being trapped in an elevator going downwards to Satan's realm while all the other men inside had overdosed with A*men

    ( Would Satan be a woman who reeked of Pink Sugar? )

    But then it hit me! A*men is like being an over muscled steroid grotesque.

    A small percentage will think you're terrific! So don't worry about over spraying. Besides you might meet your true love, who is wearing Pink---

    So there are saving graces, to all of these.

    However Insense Ultramarine should be banned by The Geneva Convention.

    I have never tried Sécrétions Magnifiques, but I am intrigued by the statistics:

    Insense Ultramarine: 22 reviews to date. 11 positive 3 neutral 7 negative--alright 7 very negative

    BUT

    Sécrétions Magnifiques 47 reviews to date. 11 positive 7 neutral and---29 NEGATIVE !

    I am impressed.

    Joop and A*Men are like pink polos. There's nothing more manly then not being afraid to look like you might be gay. It's like a big game of chicken us boys all play at the bar.

    Yeah, I can't see anyone listing something as inoffensive as Code as a 'worst fragrance ever'. I could see someone thinking it's dull or derivative, but Code is absolutely nowhere near the worst fragrance ever.

    While I disagree, my brother loves all the fragrances I own except when he took a whiff of Hugo Boss he referred to it as smelling like "a sweaty a$shole" lol

    There are plenty I just really don't like, it's quite a long list, but up there amongst the most reviled by me are:
    A Men
    Farenheit
    Rive Gauche Pour Homme
    YSL M7 (thought I liked it, bought it, lived with it, hated it, sold it)
    Joop
    In a world where people smell bad, it is the personal responsibility of every Basenoter to improve the world one SotD at a time...

    I tried out Perry Ellis' 18 Man yesterday and I thought it was hilarious. I know we throw around the term "generic" quite a bit.. but even my mom (who knows nothing about fragrances) broke out laughing because of how plain it was.
