    Grey Flannel is the worst, it is a great fragrance that I almost did not buy because the name is so homely. The best is L'Anarchiste

    Grey Flannel isn't so bad. The name is a bit conservative when compared to more recent offerings, but the frag is quality, if not classic.

    And I'm sure you meant L'Anarchiste, rather than L'Anarquiste.

    Worst: "Blue Sugar" by Aquolina and "Moon Sparkle" by Escada (yes, these are male fragrances)

    Best: "Sex Panther" by Odeon.... okay for real, the best one I heard is "Fille en Aiguilles" by Serge Lutens which (according to JaimeB) translated to "Female in heels". Chicks in heels, man, can't beat that.

    Best & Worst At the Same Time: "Cumming" by Alan Cummings

    @ A.Homme:

    I believe "Kouros" is pronounced Koo-(as in Koo Stark)-Ros-(as in "roast beef", minus the t beef). That's how I say it. Of course I could be totally wrong.
    Is "Oranges and lemons say the bells..." and actual perfume name? Isn't that from "1984"?

    How about "Hai-Karate"? Maybe that's one is so bad it's good. Or perhaps it's so bad it went past good and back to bad again.

    Worst: Hot Water, and any of the designer frags that use "homme" in them. Major lack of creativity. Cumming isn't exactly good, despite the double entendre.

    Best: ?

    There was a thread recently regarding an Australian house called Bud Perfumes. Amongst their offerings was "Ugly Bastard". I think it's a great name.

    You can always trust the Aussies to cock a snook at pomposity. Good on 'em, I say.

    Really? It's a Greek name and lots of their words end with "os" like the "oas" sound in toast.
