    I tend to agree with Duckie about Knowing. There is something in it that resembles cat pee.
    Now that explains why they have cat in the advert

    Some very funny answers here guys, Duc you really cracked me up with the hilarious pics, bless you! Must say there seems to be a LOT of cat pee around! l've read about Secretions Magnifique, it sounds disgusting, don't think l'll be trying that one anytime soon.

    l take all the points about it all being a matter of taste, as l mentioned at the start of this thread, but seriously folks, have you ever smelled Coleen??!!? Anyway this is just for fun, so keep 'em coming!

    It is digusting. And difficult to wash off.

    "digusting" maybe, disgusting - NOT.

    Thanks, I love it, too! "Stole" it at another forum from a bloke who changed his and have kept my paws on it firmly ever since.

    I'd have to say the worst ever on my skin has been "Pamplelune." [And I mean worse than anything. Worse than Secretions magnifiques.]

    I've read all the reviews, here and elsewhere, and it am amazed at how different it is on me.Fresh? No. Slightly sweet? No. A touch of vanilla? No.

    On me it is 95% cat pee, or more precisely a mixture of cat pee and that fetid, other-people's-BO-in-a- unventilated-room smell, doused in grapefruit, and screaming for ventilation.

    I *hate* when a perfume that smells great on others smells doesn't work on me.

    So what is this cat pee-like ingredient anyway? Or is it a combination of ingredients like jasmine + ??? I've smelled it in a few fragrances (Sublime was one).

    Nostalgie, Pamplelune didn't work on my skin either. Shtinker!

    Yep. Which is one of the reasons I'm not going to list my personal "worsts": they're bound to be someone else's favourites and who am I to argue with that?

    I agree. And I happen to like Bobo very much. I do confess to an unsniffed dislike of Secretions Magnifique based on its name and marketing alone.

    On the other hand there is one scent that made me hang my arm out the car window on the entire ride home when I sprayed it on (and I became a test strip convert right then and there), that was Santa Maria Novella's masterpiece of fermentation (and they do call it fermented), Pot-Pourri. It was an amazing experience. Perhaps it would smell fine on someone else, or maybe it's what they use on those dried rose and carnation concoctions you find in cellophane bags at some home stores. It was so not me.

    No arguments here, just curiosity & fun. We all know it's a matter of taste/opinion. It is also interesting to discover if we share any common dislikes as well as likes.

    Wrappings is the worst for me, followed by Aromatics Elixir (funny how many have mentioned this one!), and Donna Karan´s Cashmere Mist (but maybe my bottle was "off"...).

    Eternity by Clavin Klein. A friend of mine unfortunately wears this a lot and she has noticed how I recoil whien she gets too close (Until then I hadn't realized my dislike was so apparent...)

    The worst fragrance I've ever smelled would probably have to be Giorgio Beverly Hills. I never really took a disliking to fragrance until I my friend started using (almost bumming) this fragrance.

    +1 on the Silences, Knit_at_Nite- smelled like cigarette smoke on me. And it had such lovely reviews...

    And with apologies to all who love them, Fracas and Poison went out the window as soon as I tried them. Go ahead, Your Royal Duckness, give me h*ll...

    There are a bunch that just don't smell right on me, but the one that makes me ill wether it's on me, someone else, or even just in the bottle is Elizabeth Arden Sunflowers. For me it's instant headache.

    Good for you! There are a couple of carcinogens in there, and although I own a full 50ml bottle of the old EDP, I stopped sniffing it since I discovered that little fact...

    Clinique's Wrappings is the absolute worst for me too, musse....although Aromatics Elixir is one of my all-time favorites!
    Science is not only compatible with spirituality, it is a profound source of spirituality. When we recognize our place in an immensity of light-years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty, and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense of elation and humility combined, is surely spiritual. ..Carl Sagan

    umm, it'd be very hard for me to answer this, as I don't bother remembering the bad ones. Nothing exceptionally bad that I've tried so far. But the one I remember that was really bad was Stella. I know it's somewhat popular...

    It's probably not that bad. I dislike rose fragrances in general, let a lone a synthetic one.

    That's ok l'm not offended, you have to be prepared to take whatever comes when you start a thread like this, it's all good fun & each to their own! lf we all liked the same things there wouldn't be much for us all to discuss here would there?
