    I think this question is slightly different, and maybe my answer will explain why. I never get negative comments on my fragrances (people are too polite), but every once in a while a couple of my friends/coworkers will start rubbing their nose when I'm near them. I've decided this is a cue that the fragrance I'm wearing bothers them. Two that have had this reaction are Bvlgari Black and Douce Amere. I'm not quite sure why - maybe they're too woody for my collegues.

    Really ? That seems strange to me. I'm not doubting that someone said that to you, but I just think its strange that someone would say that about Black Aoud. Mind you, when you are accustomed to a fragrance, you do smell it differently.

    Thats too bad about Bulgari Black, Perfume_Addict. I thought I smelled this or something exactly like it on a female, and oh man did it smell soo good. I wish I enjoyed wearing it as much as I do smelling it on others ( which was exactly only this one time).
    Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Feeling Man, Gucci pour Homme, Essence of John Galliano, Nicole Miller (vintage), Opium pour Homme, Oxford & Cambridge...etc.

    Seeking decant/sample of Jil Sander Feeling Man, Cacharel Nemo, Bijan for Men EDC, Lanvin for Men, Giorgio VIP, Il Lancetti and other old school frags ....etc. I have samples to swap.

    There is only one fragrance that I have received negative comments on, and that is Kouros. My wife thinks it is the worst scent I own, hands down. I still think the drydown is among the best, BUT, after I wore this one to work one day and had the monstrous "unwashed" civet note rear its ugly head, I can understand why so many people dislike it. I solicited the opinions of two of my female coworkers that day and they both gave Kouros a thumbs down. Since I want to smell good and not "unclean," I may never wear Kouros in public again. Who wants to get negative comments on their frag?

    When I wear Original Vetiver (Creed), my wife tells me it smells cheap and like Luv's Baby Soft.

    Second place: About 15 years ago, I was wearing Bijan Men at my mother's house, and she said I smelled like I'd just showered in Aqua Net.

    Angel was the last frag I wore that I got attacked over. Lots of nose holding.

    Retired it.

    As much as I love Kouros it always gets the negative comments.

    For me it was two of mt favourites
    Route du Vetiver: "You smell like a moldy basement....!" but I agree, that's why I wear it.
    Royal Aoud: the proverbial mosquito repelent.... that I don't get but I hear it so much that i cannot contest it any more

    -Who burnt incense in this room? A guy who works in the same office asked this question after he had entered in the room and I was the only one who wore perfume. It was Annick Goutalís Myrrhe Ardente.

    -Oh! Did you take Thai traditional snuff? A female colleague once asked me when I wore Givenchy Gentleman.

    I considered these two questions very vexing.

    Funny. Encre Noire garners the most compliments for me followed by Antaeus, but I wear these a lot.

    Shalimar (i wear edc) and Mitsouko (edp) get compliments, but an equal amount of "what smells like old lady?"-- but then again, I wear these a lot.

    People who have never smelled it on me, have already gone on to assume I must smell bad.

    Whenever I wear an oud / rose fragrance I always get the same comment from my SA and that is: "I like what you are wearing but it is too strong! It's that chemical smelling stuff (oud) that causes the fragrance to be much stronger than you are aware of." I get this comment whenever I have worn Black Aoud (Montale), AMAZE, or Midnight Oud (Juliette has a Gun) - even when I wear very small amounts. "the oud causes it to be too strong! . . . but I do like the way it smells." I don't get this objection to the oud when wearing Oud Wood - the opposite occurs - always positive comments. So it is the oud + rose + saffron or patchouli combinations that do it.

    Hilarious! I totally agree. I once had an older woman tell me I smelt "kinda" good when I wore this last summer (very gentle application - 2 sprays tops). She said it in somewhat of a suggestive way so I'll consider that a compliment. However, my girlfriend immediately told me I smelt like an abrasive chemical when she smelt it on me one evening; I was forced to retire it.

    Majority of time when I wear too much, is only time i get a negative complaint.

    So i have been real easy on the trigger as of late.

    The only one that I know of that got me a real negative complaint was Serge Lutens Amber Sultan
