    you know i cant help but be amazed at how different peoples tastes are 0_O i mean i know everyone has different tastes but i mean, some of this stuff is just like, something i'd imagine the masses would love so even if it isn't complex or worthy of buying i would imagine it would at least smell pleasant.

    But to get back on topic, i would say well, when i first started i nearly gagged on the opening of kouros. But my nose has developed a lot and nothing really smells repulsive and weird in my opinion anymore so i can't really judge. I actually like kouros now. But i will say, the other day i accidently sprayed a men on top of a platinum egoiste spray (on accident). oh my god that was beyond repulsive

    Apart from obvious differences between different peoples sense of smell, I think a big reason for the difference in taste with fragrances is down to the reason why you're actually wearing them.

    I think if you're wearing a fragrance to try and impress women or fish for compliments, then its more than likely you'll be someone who wants to wear something that's in your face, leaves a vapour trail wherever you walk, so strong it gives you a headache and makes your nose bleed, and has been recognised as being a fragrance that women like (think Joop, JPG, Mugler, Issey Miyake etc...)

    Alternatively, you could fall in to the category of man who wears a fragrance for themselves, who doesn't really care what other people think and chooses a fragrance solely because they like it and couldn't care less if other people can't smell it or don't recognise it.

    The worst smelling fragerence is Musc Raveguer. The smell is nauseating. It smells like rotten spoiled eggnog with more vanilla added to try and cover up the spoiled smells.

    It is a shame that Fahrenheit was reformulated. The old version was good. I agree the current Fahrenheit is not good.

    The worst fragrance I've ever smelled is Jicky. It literally makes my stomach turn. Close runner up is C&S #88.
    Current faves: CdG White, Amouage Dia, Millesime Imperial, Miller Harris Terre de Bois

    My pic is L'eau d'Issey Homme Eau de Toilette. This fragrance boasts notes of Yuzu (Japanese Citron), Cypress, Coriander, Mandarin, Clary Sage, Fresh Verbena, Blue Water Lily, Nutmeg, Saffron, Bourbon Geranium, Ceylonese Cinnamon, Tobacco Amber, Musk, Indian Sandalwood, Haitian Vetiver, Cypriol. Too many notes! This fragrance is completely overpowering, confused and a guaranteed migraine.

    Can't believe that no one has mentioned Paco Rabanne Ultraviolet yet. Either male or female.

    Bond No 9 Brooklyn. I got a sample of it yesterday and couldnt wait to get it off my arm. Unfortunately after a an attempt to wash it off and A SHOWER it wouldnt come off. I reeked of it the rest of the night. Very long night...

    I'm very surprised at all the hatred towards Fahrenheit on these boards. Yes, the new formulation is not as refined or robust as the vintage, but is still a unique and pleasant fragrance (to my nose). Usually with that criteria on Basenotes, it is held in high regard. I'm puzzled.

    It still turns heads even after all these years. Someone walks into a room wearing Fahrenheit and love it or hate it, your head will turn.

    Secretions Magnifique tops the list of ipecac flankers. Katie Puckrick's review is hilarious.

    I just smelled a sample of True Religion Drifter----Yikes! who would wear that?

    Many of the mentioned frags I like, but that's the nature of the business.
    Your nostrils, which will dilate immesurably in unspeakable contentment, in motionless ecstasy, will ask nothing better for space, for they will be full of fragrance, as if perfumes and incense; for they will be glutted with complete happiness, like angels who dwell in the peace and magnificence of pleasent heaven.

    After a terrific clove-and-cinnamon chai tea opening, Comme des Garcon's eponymous scent has developed into what I can unabashedly call the worst scent I've ever smelled. The spices melded clumsily together about half an hour in, and I can't inhale without smelling a flea market incense shoppe magnified one-hundred fold. Truly a gag-worthy scent, and one that has been cut/pasted from the "maybe" list to the "hell no" list for eternity and beyond.

    From what I have encountered I really didn't like
    Ferrari Red
    Live Jazz (I wonder if this was off though, as I could not smell much. Might have to retry another bottle sometime as I like Jazz)

    Also rather annoying
    Eternity Men
    Obsession Men

    My worst scent is Yatagan. I really have to want something different or non-floral to wear this.

    This past summer, I interviewed someone who reeked of it. Needless to say, they did not get the job.
    While I could see how you could hate A*Men, it is most definitely a winter fragrance not summer. In the summer it is waaaay to rough. Give it a go now in the winter it might be okay.

    And having said that, the worst frag I may have ever smelled is B*men blind bought a 3.4oz. Luckily it was only 34$...tho that probably should have been a hint. I've never heard a guys story start "So I got complimented on my cologne today, I am wearing B*Men"
