    Secretions Magnifique smells really really really disgusting. Funny how some of the fragrances mentioned are considered fresh or aromatic fragrances. Makes me wonder if these same people have such bad hygiene that when they smell something fresh, it disturbs the funk that's coming out of their mouths.
    My current favorites:

    Bleu De Chanel, Creed Green Irish Tweed, Zino Davidoff, Dior Homme Intense, Creed Royal Oud, M7 (all versions), Chanel Egoiste, Dior Homme Sport, and Thierry Mugler Pure Malt.

    I'd probably have to say this also though it is definitely an interesting creation.

    Agree - its smells like 'nothing' really - it was a blind buy - nowadays with little left i've kept in the fridge - i must say, the smell is improving

    oh there's several I really really really really dislike....Loewe 7 was disgusting reminded me of the smell of the dentist' medicine they put to clean your hole out before they insert the filling.
    Musc Ravageur, M7 and the Dreamer totally gave me bad vibes (the first two medicinal smell that makes me sick, and the Dreamer just had an icky smell that I don't like, well despise really, it's the only tobacco fragrance that I can think of that I dislike)...


    Coco Figue takes the cake though....might as well be put in a suntan lotion bottle, as that ain't even a fragrance in my opinion. Yuck.

    * Aramis - I had to pull the bottle away after smelling it.
    * Encre Noir - Vetiver is too strong

    Honorable Mention: Drakkar Noir - midnotes to drydown is terrible on my skin.

    there are many things mentioned that i like.

    Hi all,

    While I admit it's been a long long time since I "sampled" Serge Lutens MKK, I LOVED it and I want to buy a bottle. I am somewhat known here at BN for my love of (so called) STINKY fragrances. Kouros, DZING! Diptyque L'Autre, SMN "Acqua di Cuba", SMN "Nostaliga", Bulgari Black, Caron Yatagan, McQueen Kingdom, MPG "Eau des Iles", MPG "Route de Vetiver", CREED Tabarome Millesime, YSL Body Kouros, Piguet Bandit, Turssardi Uomo, Etro Messe de Miniuit, Lorenzo Villoresi "Piper Nigrum" and (I give my left ### for a bottle of) Gobin Daude "Biche dans L'Absinthe". I would say the WORST fragrance I ever tried was purchased at a "Yard Sale". It was called "Man of Aran" (Irish Cologne). God awful, cheap smelling.

    Regards,
    SixCats!

    Serge Lutens - Gris Clair. I can't stand it, I used to think it was the Lavender, but have since discovered many Lavenders I really enjoy. But Gris Clair has this weirdly acrid burnt plastic undertone which simply would not wash off my skin and made me feel ill.

    Oh yeah that and Acqua di Gio, which smells vaguely like bile.

    I also got some sort of impression with SMW. I dont say it is the worst scent but I literally lost all my excitement after sniffing it. I was aware of Kouros from Basenotes then I thought It wasnt too bad.

    Tough call for the single worst, I'd say L'eau d'Issey PH.

    Amouage Gold Man, Fahrenheit and FCUK Him are both pretty strong contenders for the minor placings.

    Oh, and Bulgari Aqua smells so bad on my skin, that if it didn't smell ok on others, it would definitely receive my vote.

    Probably going to offend a lot of people but Chergui is the worst I've ever smelled. To my nose it was just bad. Not going to bash it though as I'm certain it's just a matter of personal taste as it has many fans.

    Dior Homme/Intense and Paco 1 Million are easily the worst i've ever smelled. I just can't imagine those two are even supposed to be worn on human skin. They would be more suited to a cheap floor cleaner.

    Lolita Lempicka - absolutely vile and revolting smell. The stench it gave resembles the shambles in an abattoir. I got this as a gift and was surprised to find that it was marketed as a masculine. Used is as a toilet fragrance within 30 seconds.

    If I was to pick the worst or one that I was really put off by, it has to be one from Tom Ford Musk range (Private Collection). Not sure of the exact name but it was borderline rancid!

    I wore Amazingreen for the first time today and was kinda attracting bats. I live in an ultra-urban area of a huge city and have never before had a chance to encounter bats. First there was one, but then they were literally swarming. I am so traimatized I think I'd better off myself. I will never recover from this ghastly experience.
    Amazingreen smells positively ghastly and I will dispose of my sample as if it were toxic green waste.

    There aren't any that I hate. However, I am not a huge fan of cool water. Definitely doesn't live up to its hype. Maybe I have a bias; I grew up with a friend who constantly wore it. I supposed my nose is just tired of it.

    I agree with Gris Claire. Smells like a damp cotton shirt that has been burnt by someone leaving a clothes iron on it too long. Also, vanilla fields, white diamonds, sunflowers, and countless others

    Dior homme intense. That sickly, synthetic, cloying, ugly, cheap mess made me want to vomit. It's an extremely offensive stink for those poor souls around you. That chemical trash should never be sprayed on human skin.
