    Default Worst Fragrance Names???

    Lanvin have committed what surely must be commercial suicide with the dreadfully titled "Marry Me!"

    Even if this smelled like God's own preferred fragrance I could not in all conscience ever buy this for my girlfriend. The fallout could be devastating.

    Even without the idea of buying it for a woman who is overly-keen on tying the knot, the concept of asking a woman what she is wearing and her declaring "Marry Me!" is likely to make most men run a mile...
    In a world where people smell bad, it is the personal responsibility of every Basenoter to improve the world one SotD at a time...

    On El by J del Pozo, even if I like the scent, the name is way too nondescript

    Visit Azzaro, and there was some nonsensical ad campaign explaining a man was 'visiting' his lover.
    I really like the scent despite the name.

    La Vierge Folle (The Mad Virgin) by Gabilla has to rank right up there with Mon Fluide (My Fluid)

    Doesn't Etat Libre D'Orange win this contest hands down?

    Preface these names with the question "What are you wearing" or "What's that smell" or "What do you smell of" ...

    I think ELDO is very creative and (even) daring when naming the scents.

    Right now, I think G. Ferragamo Free Time pour Homme is worst of the worst.

    Don't get me wrong, I like the names myself, and agree with you; but in the context of the question and the example given by the OP, I reckon they take the cake.

    Q: What's that smell ? A: That's my belly button

    Q: You smell great, what are you wearing ? A: Nothing

    Q: You smell nice, what are you wearing ? A: Don't get me wrong baby, I don't swallow.
    (Response: I was only asking about your perfume)

    Doesn't it a great way do keep secret about your favorite scents? :P Though it sounds a little weird and...out of control : ))

    How about Passage d'Enfer, pathway or gateway to hell. (Could even be loosely translated as Highway to Hell.) That sounds appealing, doesn't it? The scent is good, though.




    I wonder what would happen if you layered it with Straight to Heaven? Some sort of explosion, I suppose.

    I get annoyed by anything with "Homme" in the name.

    So, who can pronounce that 'C' word? I'm serious.

    What, you don't know how to pronounce Cthulhu? That is incomprehensible.

    (Not really, but I can make a decent attempt at it - I even think Lovecraft gives some sort of description of how it should sound somewhere, IIRC.)

    I love some of these names. Bas de Soie makes me want to love the fragrance much more than I do, for instance, I find the association with seamed silk stockings incredibly sexy. Passage d'Enfer is lovely, too, and I rather like many of État Libre d'Orange's admittedly unorthodox names.

    All those Victoria's Secret names and the like make me cringe, though. Any name in excess of three words had better be very, very good to pull it off - L'Air du Desert Marocain works, but that's about it.
