    Secretions Magnifique for me. I literally had to wash with Soft Scrub to get it off my hand. Even then, I couldn't scrub it from my mind.

    I think you spelled MKK wrong. ;-)

    That's my vote. I've tried and tried and tried to find the appeal, but no dice.

    There's lots of dime-a-dozen mainstream stuff listed in this thread.....I find most of the scents mentioned extremely boring, but certainly not offensive. I mean, that's generally what they're after. What's one sweet syntheric mess got vs another, when I'm talking about something that actually smells like poo?

    There are loads that I've tried and didn't like, but I appreciated them all the same. Mind you, there was a hint of "Emperors New Clothes" about some of them, IMHO.

    However, I must agree with MKK. Also, Creed Royal Delight makes me feel nauseous.

    No, I really enjoy that frag. But, what appeals to one might smell like crappola to another.

    The ones that I dislike goes like this:

    One Million
    Eternity for men
    Poison (the original formulation, I was in Paris when it debuted and the whole city smelled like this. Nauseating )
    Black XS
    Fahrenheit(every variation there of, sorry I dont get it)
    Burberry anything(smells like wet horse blankets)
    Tabac
    Grey Flannel

    That was cathartic, thank you for the thread.

    Drakkar Noir has to be at the top of the list. Overpowering, outdated 1980's biker fragrance, still ubiquitous among the tank-top crowd.

    Dishonourable mention goes to Quorum, Boss #1, Lancome Hypnose and Chanel Allure Homme Edition Blanche.

    its really weird. i used to absolutely love brit. i used to love it just as much as any other fragrance in my wardrobe, but one time i wore it and i realized...im over it. It got annoying to me. Maybe it was just a bad day, but i havent worn it since.

    also, another fragrance i think absolutely sucks is Kenzo Pour Homme. Hate it. Sprayed it on a test strip at Sephora YUCK

    I wouldn't exactly use the word sucks, but I would agree it's bad. I received a sample of this from a fellow basenoter and it smells like stale olives. I thought that it would just be the top notes and develop into something nice, but nope. Kenzo still has some other good ones though.

    I find that logic.
    Jicky smells "vomit" to my nose coz of the lavanda accord mixed with vanilla... And Jicky was used as a base for create Shalimar later .

    For me, the worst I've smelled was Dior Homme Sport. I've had others I didn't like, but this was a true scrubber.

    If you can still find it somewhere, Davidoff's What About Adam? is my candidate for worst smelling scent (i.e. a scent that was actually meant to be worn - I don't think Dirt or Secretions qualify).
    I'm sure there are people out there who like this tomato leaf scent, but I think it would have smelled better had they used tomato leaf insecticide.
