    Ungaro III, I put just a bit too much on and that morbid floral top note absolutely made me sick

    Yes.
    YSL Paris (I think it was because of the rosewood note in the composition. The fragrance is indeed romantic but the whole thing smells a lot like a room spray to me)
    Caron Pour un Homme
    Chanel Egoiste

    But nonetheless, if I try any of those above when I'm in good health, then I'll be fine.

    Not nauseous, but when I was about 6-7 years old, both male and female fragrances gave me repeated severe migraine, pity I cannot remember which actual scents made my head ache

    No. However, there may have been an instance where I wasn't feeling well and the fragrance made it worse. I don't blame the fragrance for that.

    only one to make me feel physically nauseous is secretions magnifique (smells like copper coins and raw eggs)

    No, not at all. I have been slightly shocked, but never wanted to gag or anything similar. Only putrid smells do that to me, and no perfume has EVER done that to me. Not even the aforementioned Secretions Magnifiques, and certainly no sweet fragrance at all. The beautiful Bois Farine does smell like a oatmeals gone bad to ME (sorry!) but even that one doesn't make me gag (smells good, but I associate it to something else.)

    I am always surprised at people who "gag" at sweet (or other kinds, for that matter) perfumes, I wonder if it's mentally induced (a bias), or a real allergy. I do advice that before paying attention to any review that states "It's nauseating"!, SMELL IT FIRST! Some reviewers are too sensitive and/or prejudiced against certain good scents out there.

    Guerlain Homme Intense kinda gave me that hot, bubbly stomach feeling for a little while, but doesn't anymore.

    Yeah this one made me feel bad as well, the top notes are extremely unpleasant. I don't think I could handle a one man show scented chair.

    Whilst I may have been somewhat under the weather at that time, a scent I had really been looking forward to, Lagerfeld Classic, made me feel quite nauseous - I had to wash it off whilst trying simultaneously to control a gag refelex.

    Could never inflict it on my nostrils again!

    Twice I've tried Narciso Rodriguez Musc for Him -- both times I got the sick feeling in the stomach.

    Two have.

    A*Men

    And surprisingly Tobacco Vanille by Tom Ford. I like vanilla and I like tobacco, but this has to be the most nauseating combination of the two I have ever encountered. It was a scrubber of the first order, I was in Selfridges at the time and after ten minutes I realised it was starting to make me feel decidedly queasy so had to find the men's room to wash it off. It was several hours and several washings before it finally went.
    In a world where people smell bad, it is the personal responsibility of every Basenoter to improve the world one SotD at a time...

    I cannot remember one. Worse a fragrance has given me is a headache, not even a rash. (not to belittle headaches...)

    Never and I've never gotten a headache from one either.

    You've got to have a pretty weak stomach to actually vomit at the smell of perfume.

    Beyond Paradise... migraines and a bubbling stomach. Other than that, sadly some of the board's favorites hit me way wrong.

    Fumidus by Profumum. Awful. Just... Smoldering wet grass, the inside of a dirty charcoal grill, spilled barbeque sauce. And as is so often the case, it has amazing sillage and longevity. After the nuclear apocalypse, when the earth has been inherited by the cockroaches, south winds will still blow whiffs of Fumidus across the continent from a leaking vial in Minnesota.

    I can see this. Incense notes make me queasy...iris or violet AND incense is the worst. The opening of Fracas reminds me of Robitussin, and makes me nauseous sometimes, other times no.
