I'm curious to know what you all think is the most "Love It or Hate It" fragrance. "Love It or Hate It" fragrances attract me, just for that very reason. A few come to mind:
Muscs Koublai Khan
Possibly even Joop! Homme, Grey Flannel or Oud 27. There are plenty more, I'm sure... but I want to know what you all come up with.
Joop is another contender.
Maybe not the scent alone (it's a pretty resounding hate it) but the concept/purpose of Secretions Magnifique
cuir de russia and fracas and aromatics elixir
Hate - Joop!
Love - Dior Homme
I think you can put Le Male on that list
From recent memory, Kouros and A*men seem to be the strongest contenders.
For the more restricted group of those who have smelled them, the recent post-Sec Mag niche bilges also seem to elicit opposite reactions (I am talking about M/Mink, Tirrenico, the HdP latinized trio).
And of course, since likely the beginning of BN, most of the Creed range, especially the "fresh" ones like Spring Mountain water, Virgin Island water, and the like.
DHI vintage or not.
The feminineMIP. oops!
I could see Breath of God dividing opinions.
Kouros was first that came to my mind. Agreed Le Male. Maybe Egoiste and Opium Homme too (strong orientals).
Please check out my selling list:
Gucci Envy men, Rive Gauche pour homme, Villoresi, Dior Homme vintage, Body Kouros, Narciso Rodriguez, quality samples etc.
Midnight in Paris
As you can tell by my signature I very much like 3 of the aforementioned. Hate the other 2.
Angel Men / A*Men
Yatagan. I'm shocked it hasn't made this list.
Definitely Amen. It's the most talked reviewed fragrance on this site!
Gotta be Kouros.

Amouage Gold for Men
Eau de Gentiane Blanche
Route du Vétiver

Midnight in Paris
Really? Midnight In Paris?
Quite a few people have mentioned it now, kinda surprised by that. I don't think it's really bold or anything like that? I absolutely love it, so maybe I'm biased, but - I didn't think it was a polarizing frag...
out of those 3 i say A*men but there are so many...
-Love: Dior homme o.g. formula
-Hate: Aqua di Gio and D&G light blue for men, every polo fragrance(kiss my ass)
-Love to Hate: Le Male... good shit but its just become so... sleazy
-Meh?: Versace Eau Fraiche, still a good summer scent tho
My nose hates Chanel especially platinum egoiste! allure sport is pretty good but i wont buy it
I'd have to say Kouros
THE DREAMER i hate the opening never even got to the dry down, same thing with prada amber intense
also iceberg twice is really love or hate, its really sweet and kind of floral yet this cardboard/stale cookie thing is floating around in there but its not bad
Angel, of course. Smells great on the right woman. Smells obnoxious on everyone else.
I personally dislike this one
CURRENT TOP 5
1. Dior Homme Intense
