    Talking What Fragrane(s) Make(s) You SICK ?!

    Hi,

    I know most of the people are looking for good fragrances, but there some are fragrances that are a headache for some. Beside the cheap, duplicated ugly fragrance(s), what fragrance(s)makes you sick ???!

    Christian Dior Fahrenheit and Platinum Egoiste Chanel are my top, and I'd guess the only gagtastic scents.

    Clinique for Men made me choke, it smells terrible on me and Amouage Reflection when I sampled it, gave me a very bad headache within 10 minutes of spraying every time, although other Amouages I have no problems with.

    Bulgari pour Homme. Its flankers don't harm me, though.

    Also for some reason, the misspelling of "fragrane" in the thread title puts this thread at the top of a Google search.

    Aromatics Elixir, The 1st Prada for Women, Euphoria for Women, and Joop Pour Homme.
    I have never worn any of these Fragrances for Women.....When I smell them I have to get away from them very quickly.....Aromatics Elixir is the one I dislike more than any other fragrance.....I must also add that Polo (Original) is a tough scent for me to take.....If someone sprays one spray I'm alright.....more than one spray and this is way too much for me.....That's why I like Polo Modern Reserve, it does not bother me at all like Polo!!!

    ADG. I made the mistake of buying this a while back. For some reason I find it to be sweet to the point of nausea. I just don't understand why it's so popular. It smells like one of those cheep body mists that teenage girls buy for $5.

    Armani Mania and 212 Men. Bad allergic reaction to both, featuring red, watery eyes, stuffy nose, etc. Jaipur Homme did that to me once, too. I tried it again later, much lighter application and it wasn't so bad the second time.

    Polo makes me kinda sick, but that's because it was worn by a certain cheeseball crowd when it first came out - bad image association. Sorry, Ralph.

    I am starting to think that fragrances with vetiver-prominent drydowns are not for me; there always seems to be a brief stage where the damp/ripe/haylike character makes me feel slightly queasy.

    Guerlain Vetiver and MPG Racine both did this recently, which is sad because I quite like the rest of their respective progressions. And just the other day, Amouage Dia Man went the same way about four hours after application on and ended up giving me a headache. Another tragedy, as I loved it after a dab from the vial some months ago but the first full wearing obviously did not go my way.

    Will have to give each of these another chance in the autumn, just to make sure it isn't a seasonal thing.

    Creed Royal Delight and, regrettably, most of the PG's that I've tried, particularly L'Ombre Fauvre. Also, Musc Koublai Khan, Musc Ravaguer and Lonestar Memories.

    Strong, synthetic smell fragrances like Lolita Lempica Au masculin, Le male, Body Kouros, Platinum Egoiste, Silver Mountain Water and so on... And I use to love these frags before! Also Chanel Allure Homme Sport gives me a headache (aldehydes?).

    I agree with ra08 about Live Jazz. I bought it blind for the summer since I love YSL and it sounded like a really safe buy, but I think it's the rhubarb note in it that makes me a bit queazy. Maybe I'll get used to it, but I think it may need to find another home. I also have never gotten the Grey Flannel thing, but I still keep my bottle around and give it another try every now and then.

    Oh, yeah, and Lonestar Memories is disgusting to me, even though I love Dzing! to which it is sometimes compared.
