    Yes! A few but the standout is.....Creed's Bois Du Portugal. The family runs from it. I'm not sure what the cat thinks though....

    Im with Evogel on this one. I love Bois du Portugal but my family hates it. So I can only wear it when I'm not going to be around them.

    Even Black aoud got more love after a few wearings.

    I love Green Irish Tweed. My wife can't stand it. She hates the fact that I have so many bottles of it. She loves all my Creeds but that one. She can't believe Creed would put out such a "gross" fragrance.

    Default Re: it stinks!! My Wife Hates it! People hate it!!! Dogs hate it!! But i love it!!!

    My girlfriend really doesn't like Dior Homme or Coney Island from the bottle. She hasn't smelled either on me but I've already told her they're safe from being sold from my wardrobe I don't know if I'll ever wear one of them if I'm going to be around her a lot when I have enough options that I know she loves.

    I can't say I wouldn't be able to go on without either, but I do like both enough that they're safe from the sale block!

    My partner and a good friend I work with both hate Piper Nigrum, but it's one of my very favorites. (Yes, I know - another case in which a basenotes favorite is scorned by others. Maybe we need to start a commune!)

    There are days in my life when I just want to be alone, when I don’t need any kind of conversation, when I am sick of the people… on these days I wear Givenchy Gentleman… and I am pretty sure that no one will approach to me… even insects flee from me these days…

    My dog used to avoid me when I wore Bulgari Black. She was always much more friendly to me when I wore my boozy fragrances. In retrospect, perhaps she was a bit of a drunkard, that little beast. I sure do miss her.

    L'Huere Bleue edp, my husband hates it. I used to wear it to bed every night until he said "What's that god awful stench?" I left the room in tears. There's something wrong with the man, I swear.

    Not to worry....I purchased the parfum & guess what, no complaints.

    What a timing Jenson !!!

    For the last few days I was thinking of starting a similar thread about how much my wife hates Black Aoud.

    Everytime I put it on my wife says ...she can't breath...its nasty.. its too strong... its disgusting... it smells cheap... she feels sorry for my coworkers who have to put with this smell....etc etc..

    That because its a pretty disgusting fragrance. I put a sample of this on in the store once and when my wife got within 10 ft she made a weird face asked "what stinks?"

    On keeping with the topic I'd have to say CdG's Harissa; this is a fragrance that my wife just does not like at all but I like it.

    My brother thought it smelt like grass and I've gotten some great compliments on it. Skin chemistry, maybe.

    Only thing I know is Lui by Mazzolari. I've gotten "you smell like shit, literally". I ended up selling my bottle. I loved it but I could have never pulled it off, you'd have to be ultra masculine, buff, hair chested and have a beard to get away with wearing it, but guys like that wouldn't be caught died in a fragrance. *weird*.
