    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.

    1) Musk Oud - By Kilian
    2) Straight to Heaven - By Kilian
    3) Back to Black - By Kilian
    4) Encre Noire - Lalique
    5)
    M7 (vintage or Oud Absolu) - YSL

    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.

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

    I've never been a fan of Opium PF.

    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?

    Another vote for ANGEL. I want to puke and when I smell it. My wife used to wear it before we met and when we started dating. After a month she recieved a backup bottle for a gift. I told her that if she wants to be in a square block radius of me she will return the gift and get rid of her existing bottle. She got rid of the gift but kept the other bottle. It wasnt until we were in Saks a few weeks later that I sprayed a mysterious scent that made her ill. I then presented the bottle of Angel to her and she finally realized that pain and suffering I went through everytime I went to her apartment. This frag should be banished and Mugler should recieve 500 whippings with bamboo for creating it.

    Everything on my wife's dresser, because she's had them for like 7 years, never uses them, they're totally exposed to sun and two of my 3 kids (the "girls") randomly spray them on themselves.

    Chanel No. 5 (what a waste....)
    NOA(??) Cacharel EDT
    (no name....WTF???)

    You can't let frags just hang around.....it's like that series "Life After People." .....all sorts of bad sh*t happens to it....

    White Diamonds/Elizabeth Taylor Probably only because the women I know who use it over apply it. I don't know a woman who uses this fragrance subtlely.

    Also, any other Taylor fragrance named after jewels is rather garish. I can tolerate Passion, however.

    Tresor, Amirage, Ciara are some of my (avoid at all costs) frags. Eliz Arden in general is a mystery. Between Green Tea & Red Door & countless others, there isn't one decent scent among them. I wonder, was Red Door good back in the old days?
