    Default What is the worst male fragrance you've ever smelled?

    I hated Boucheron pour Homme EDP. It smelled old, powdery, and pungent.

    Hmmm, I'd vote..."Joop Pour Homme" A 9 year olds attempt at his first science experiment...not a fan

    Something called One Man Show. It was very big in the Middle East in the late '80s and early '90s.

    I don't know that I've ever smelled anything horrendous, but I have to say that even a great fragrance over applied can be suffocating and a complete turn off.

    Grey Flannel smelled amazing in the 80s, now it has me running for the hills.

    Hugo by Hugo Boss.



    I don't know why, but it just turns a musty-sour on me.

    I always hated Drakkar Noir. Apologies to anyone who wears this - I know it's been a popular best selling fragrance. Does anyone even wear it anymore? I'm pretty clueless about male fragrances, actually. My husband won't wear any.

    +2 on Le Male. It was absolutely disgustingly cloying on DH.

    Oh, and Kouros definitely went urinal cake on him. Interesting, but not something I'd like to smell regularly (he hated it).

    DH wears both Grey Flannel and Drakkar Noir. Not crazy about the first (although drydown is nice), but I do like the second. The key to both is light application.

    Am I allowed to say 'Unwashed teenager with fetid socks'?


    Am I wierd? I find Kouros very sexy and rather comforting. I'm showing my age, I know, as I was an 80s girl who smelled it on most of my beaus when I was young.

    Not weird at all. I like Polo for the exact same reason. (DH hates this too, but allows me to put a drop or two on the back of his neck occasionally.)

    No offense to those who love it. Cool Water. It was revolting on somebody who sprayed probably half the bottle.

    Personal taste: Either Jicky or Caron's Pour Un Homme, both nasty civet monsters (but both dearly loved here by many people with more well-heeled palates than mine)

    From a technical standpoint: Zara Vetiver. I could smell the cheapness of every single ingredient coming together into a disappointingly flawed scent.

    Axe Voodoo. When i first met hubby, as he started to realize my fragrance passion, he showed me his only fragrance ever owned, Axe Voodoo.
    Well he sprayed it in the air to smell, there were a few of us there at the time, and it wafted into his room-mates computer fan and the room was filled with the noxious scent of Axe Voodoo. We all had to evacuate the room and let it air out and my friend could not stop coughing; I was close to having an asthma attack. So that is tops on the list.

    But like Wordie, I absolutely adore Kouros. I also love Polo and Drakkar Noir. So go figure.

    Another vote for hideous is Lonestar Memories. As I was exploring leather notes, I could not believe how offensive the "barbecue charcoal fire accord" was in this scent!
