    Bumping this, because today I just stumbled on something horrible. I got a great deal on a little bottle of Flight Sport by MJ. Being the original Flight was kind of nice, I decided to try out this one. There is virtually no info on this on the internet. The opening is hard to detect for the first few minutes, then it turns into a combination of a bucket of rust and blood mixed with a horrible synthetic grapefruit note, and fish food. So bad, so freakin bad that I had to shed light on it. It dries down into more of a Chrome smell, synthetic soapy and metallic, but not even as good as Chrome, and I am no Chrome fan, but Chrome is a masterpiece next to this monstrosity.

    So if you're like me, and get curious about these obscure flankers, based off of a fragrance you like.. well in this case Flight Sport. If you see it for a low price, take my advice, avoid it at all costs. Top 10 worst ever, probably even top 5!
    My Ultimate Top 5:

    Fahrenheit (1988)
    Paul Smith Man (2009)
    Burberry London (2006)
    Prada Amber pour Homme (2006)
    Arpege pour Homme (2005)

    Many ones I really don't like! Coming to my mind now as my top 5:

    - Boss Bottle
    - Le Male
    - Secretions Magnifiques
    - Lolita Lempicka au Masculin
    - Burberry London

    So many stinkers and so little time to post. Anyway, the one stinker that immediately pops into my minds nostrils--and inflames them in a massively offending way--is Costume National Homme. El Stinko!

    You can clearly love it! But on an impartial note everyone has to say it's really not an "easy" scent and not for everyone! If we would create a list of top scents not to buy on blind buys it would have to be near the top if not the first on the list. I'm not a hater! I wear it here and there... But I have to be in the mood for it or it gives me heartache. And it's uniqueness, as much as it's brought hate to it, is also a huge part of why it's still here (Having been modified) today.

    And to me the fact that it's still there after a long time doesn't mean it smells good at all or especially that no one can think it's smell really bad.The quality of the scent and its smell doesn't decide if it stays or gets taken off the market. At the opposite, fantastic scents have been discontinued through the years and if your logic would apply it would have not been the case.

    Dior Fahrenheit smells too much like gasoline to me and gives me a headache.
    A*Men is just too damn sweet and gag inducing
    L'eau d'Issey smells like dirt on my skin (as does Burberry London)
    Grey Vetiver smells like a paper bag to me
    Guerlain Vetiver just reeks of old man

    I forgot to name Prada Infusion d'Iris! To me it's powdery sharp acid in a bottle! The only good part is the 2 times I tried it it decongested my sinus like nothing else before!

    I haven't been into fragrances for very long, but this one's easy. Beaver by Zoologist. Yikes! To me it's just terrible.
    However, per Magic Ketchup here at BN on another thread:

    Beaver won the Best of 2014 Perfumes from Cafleurebon and Zoologist Perfumes as a whole won the Best Discovery 2014!
    It's quite possible that as a newbie, I simply don't "get it" olfactorily

    I was physically repulsed by Secretions Magnafiques, but to me, I don't think it's supposed to be wearable. In my mind, it is art and isn't really designed to be worn. However, I'm sure many will disagree with me, but Aramis Havana is a scrubber for me. I REALLY want to like it, and on paper, it should be right up my alley. Unfortunately, I just can't do it.

    I don't hate it, but I also intensely dislike l'Eau d'Issey. I think it smells like bug spray, but I'd still rather wear it over Havana.

    Bois D'ascese smells like smoked sausage on me. Not a good look.

    Every fragrance could be the worst smelling fragrance if you apply too much...

    Le Male or 1 Million is just okay, but the problem is that many people think a fragrance smells much better when applying too much.

    Mambo. Not only did it disgust me but anybody within a 15 foot radius as well.

    I'm adding Dior Fahrenheit Absolute to the list as well. On my skin it smells like body odor mixed with cleaning product.

    MKK. No contest. But there are other stinkers: Emporio Armani Diamonds for Men, Joop! Homme, Very Irresistible for Men, and Chaps (the original 1979 one, now discontinued) all rank up there.

    From the sounds of it, though, I guess I shouldn't try Secretions Magnifiques...
