    The worst: Egoiste. Others: Dirty English. I can't think of a man having bathed and using scent being called dirty.

    I don't like the name Moustache by Rochas, but the scednt itself is nice. How about "Collier de Barbe" for a change! (Google that one!)

    The best: Insense. Another vote for Kouros.

    I've always liked "Zizanie" although I always add an extra N and say "Zinzanie".
    Here are some more great ones.

    L'Intredit (Givenchy)
    Joy de Jean Patou
    Je Reviens
    White Shoulders
    Fracas
    Eau d' Hadrien
    Diorella Dioressence Diorissimo Miss Dior (borders on the ridiculous, but still sublime) Eau Sauvage
    Cinnabar
    Ciara
    Emeraude
    Byzance
    Anais Anais (if pronounced correctly!)
    Rive Gauche
    Ysatis

    Best name fragrance: Deneuve (not just because it's named after you know who; but because it just sounds great)

    I didn't realize what a great name Bois D'Orage was until I got a sample with the English Translation. "Thunder Wood" is by far the best name for any fragrance.

    As for worst, I can't decide if I really like or really hate Eau Mega by V&R. Cheezy, but fun?

    I always loved the name X'ia X'ang. Pronounced Zee-ahh-zee-ahng. A discontinued scent by Revlon. Loved the way the guy said it in the commercial.

    Always liked "Cie" for some reason. As in the letter C. Dumb but oddly great.

    Enjolie was good too.

    as for whole collections, Parfums MDCI has great names (at least if you understand Franch and cultural background of those names): Enlevement au Serail, Le Rivage des Syrtes, La Promesse de l'Aube, Vepres Siciliennes, Un Coeur en Mai, Ambre Topkapi, Invasion Barbare, Peché Cardinal...

    on the contrary, Benefit's are really lame: So Hooked on Carmela, Something about Sophia, My Place or Yours Gina, Lookin' to Rock Rita, Laugh with me Lee Lee, Garden of Good and Eva, Maybe Babe. ugh!!

    Worst IMO was Avon's "Derek Jeter Driven Black".

    They had "Derek Jeter Driven" and came out with a darker spicier version and someone decided it was reasonable to name it "Driven Black". And it made it past marketing, executive, everything, and for some reason nobody pointed out that it was a stupid name.

    One of the worst l've seen is Poo Poo Pidoo. All l see is the word "poo" followed by a word that sounds like "pee" combined with (doggy) do. Blech! After that l don't care how good it smells, it just sounds awful.
    l know it's supposed to be named for the line Marilyn Monroe sang in "l Wanna be Loved by You", but in my mind that was spelt "Boop boop be doo" as in Betty Boop. The way they've spelt the name of this fragrance just looks wrong to me!
