    I do seem to have a problem with mandarin. It is very prevalent in the top notes of many modern fragrances,and becomes very sour if poorly executed.

    In retrospect, I shouldn't have even included calone (you are not supposed to choose it unless you just started to dislike it within the last few weeks or so). Remember that I only had 20 options maximum. If I had it to do over I guess I'd include oud and get rid of the calone option.

    I voted Vanilla, but only if it's a dominant note and is cloyingly sweet. Having said this, I adore Ellena's Vanille Galante. Tonka and Benzoin are OK with me.

    Calone when used with a heavy hand is by far the worst offender for me. I dont mind it when it is used lightly but it seems like alot of colognes are the opposite. CAse in point Bulgari Aqua Marine. I did like the regular Bulgari Aqua at one point but then I smelled Aqua Marine and they used so much Calone in it that it gave me a headache. As a result I hardly ever wear Aqua anymore. I think thats the only fragrance that has done that to me.

    Then definitely stay away from Element by Hugo Boss. Ugh. Calone heaven.

    I love it myself but it is everywhere nowadays and I know it isn't universally loved.

    Going with overly sweet vanilla or calone.
    2 go-to notes for the designer scents now-days.

    And how is oudh 'everywhere' nowdays? I can never find any decent ouds other than in niche frags.

    Interesting poll.

    I voted for licorice.

    Multiple selections would have been a better option for this type of poll in my opinion.

    Anise/licorice. I don't mind if it's blended well and I can't tell but if it's apparent and very clear then forget it.

    Aquatic is pretty much expected to be #1, I'm surprised though that animalic isn't higher up though; that's my vote. Most of the time (with the exception of some musks) fragrances that smell like body odor or feces disgust me.

    I would love to try a fragrance with ALL of those notes. Reads like a delicious savory gourmand!

    Tobacco but only because I used to be extremely hyperosmic to it. It always dominated any fragrance it was in for me.

    Other than that.. nothing really although I'm not a huge fan of 'amber' (and it just absolutely GRATES MY NERVES to see that listed as a note, because, honestly, just what is "amber"? It can be so many things. I 'd much rather see, for instance "vanilla, labdanum, benzoin, patchouli" listed as notes rather than "amber." It's a meaningless term, just like "aldehydes" or "musk.")

    Animalic notes of one kind or another from this 2010 list.

    Looks like Tony wants to resurrect a bunch of old threads.

    I am so tired of tonka. Been tired of it for so long now. I wish the tonka craze would end, but it never does. Seems nearly every designer fragrance has a tonka laden base.

    Fahrenheit (1988)
    Paul Smith Man (2009)
    Burberry London (2006)
    Prada Amber pour Homme (2006)
    Arpege pour Homme (2005)

    As this is a 2010 thread it is being closed as the results will be different on a 2013 poll.
