    I cannot bear Angel by Thierry Mugler. I know many consider it a modern classic but it's all I can do to stop myself from gagging when I'm close to somebody wearing it for any length of time.

    I'm not keen on Amarige by Givency, either. Unfortunately, my wife is...

    Le Baiser Du Dragon. Makes me want to run screaming from the room.

    Of course, for every scent we list here, there will be people who adore that very fragrance! And they may hate the ones I love.

    Very entertaining, it is.

    Calvin Klein Obsession.

    I knew a teacher in high school Math class who literally marinated in it. I have never been able to stand it since.

    I'm with you on Angel--literally cannot bear it. I also think that Chiara by Revson was so horrible joke that went all wrong....

    I love it when my wife wears this one!

    For me, worst is/was the original Poison, from the 80's. Never has a frag had a more apt name. Is Jean Guichard a pseudonym for Chemical Ali, I wonder

    There are several, but two which spring to mind that actually give me physical symptoms (i.e., headache and nausea) are Jessica McClintock and Black Orchid

    Gucci Rush. I accidentally bought it thinking it was the men's version (there's no indication on the box) and sprayed myself. I thought I was gonna puke.
    someone please stop me from buying more cologne.

    top five: 1) Creed Vintage Tabarome 2) Creed Windsor 2) Serge Lutens Chergui 3) Frederic Malle Musc Ravageur 5) MFK Lumiére Noire Pour Homme

    I'm FAR more forgiving with contemporary feminine perfumes than with contemporary masculines, but not so forgiving with the older feminines.

    I'd say my two least favorites of those I've smelled often are White Diamonds, and Beautiful by Estee Lauder.
    Currently wearing: Royal Mayfair by Creed

    It's gotta be Ysatis. The smell of big hair and mega shoulder pads.

    I've never been a fan of Opium PF.
    I have a co-worker who use it, and
    I does not flatter her one bit, and that
    dosn't help the matter ... eew!

    Coty's L'Aimant.

    My mother wore this and it induced awful headaches in me. It was a very bad "first impression" of feminine fragrances for me.

    White Diamonds. Its the equivalent of fingernails scratching a blackboard, except for your nose.
    I actually think Angel is one of the sexiest fragrances I've ever smelt on a woman (Gaultier^2 would have to be THE sexiest...) Maybe its just my girlfriends body chemistry mixing well with it?

    Lol! I hadn't noticed you posted the same thing before me. I think I probably posted just a couple of moments later or something. Well yes, that one is stuffy and repulsive.... medicinal flowers...
