    "Good" (or something like that): SMW, GIT, MI, Happy, AdG, Aventus
    "Cake": Spiritueuse Double Vanille
    "Diaper": Avignon (due to excessive heat I believe).

    Scent of Peace also received a negative comment but I hesitate to include that since it was intermingled with the scent of a certain hair conditioner (heat also a cause). I think it was "chemical toilet" or something.

    Meat - I wasn't wearing anything scented, hadn't been eating meat, not a butcher or someone who regularly works with meat. So 'meat' must be my natural smell. Go figure...
    That had me rolling with laughter.

    I wondered how she knew what a french whore smelled like since she has never been to France and there is a reason why she's my ex.... not all of it revolves around her reaction to my frags... part of it, not the main part but still part of it.

    I'm wearing Maison Francis Kurkdjian Oud today and a co-worker came into my office and said "What's that awful smell?!" Suspecting it was me he was smelling I asked him what it smelled like and he said "It smells like one of those cheap air freshener things you put in your car, something really strong and pine like and really awful." When I told him it was me he was smelling and that I was wearing a sample of a $300 fragrance he said "Well, that saved you $300". Yeah sure, like my whole world revolves around you and your (lack of) taste in fragrance you arrogant prick...

    I can totally understand people not liking this fragrance, but comparing it to a cheap air freshener makes no sense to me at all... I really like this fragrance though...

    I've not smelled his Oud, but from the other scents of his I've smelled I could see where people might make such a comment. He tends to go heavy on the mainstream-friendly musks and such. Remember, it was Kurkdjian himself who basically said that quality of ingredients is not worth the discussion, and ultimately don't matter.

    Ha. Well I'm just not surprised to hear just about anything anymore. I've heard New York Oud compared to shampoo (some of the other Bonds I'd totally understand that assertion, but NY Oud?).

    I think there is such a crossover in ingredients used between niche, mainstream, and even functional perfumery, that mistakes like this are common as people's noses tend to fixate on a specific note or two (and I'd imagine sensitivities to these cheaper and more plentiful chemicals - the kind often found in functional products - are probably more common than sensitivities to more expensive/less common chemicals simply due to the higher and more frequent exposure levels).

    Too bad you weren't his boss. You could have joked and said, "Actually, I think I'll save $X this week. You're fired."

    ...or, maybe that wouldn't be such a good idea for a joke :P.

    On the same day as getting three compliments from girls at my high school last year, a male friend of mine asked "what smells like cinnamon and poop?" The culprit: New Haarlem.

    I guess it's an acquired taste. Luckily, he couldn't figure out where the scent was coming from. And I still can't figure out where he got the poop from.

    My youngest (12) loves smelling new stuff whenever we walk through town. Many years ago when he smelled something he didn't like he'd say it "Smells like Peanuts". It's a running joke now he's older and always says "Peanuts" if something doesn't take his fancy. He wears JPG Le Male and Boss Bottled.
