    Polo Green (and, to be honest, all the Polo fragrances. Ralph Lauren makes superb polo shirts, though...)
    Cool Water (I know this gets a lot of love here, but it brings back bad memories for me. Sorry, fans.)
    Euphoria Men (LOVE the women's Euphoria, can't stand the men's.)

    I notice a lot of hate for 1 Million here. Personally, I love it, but almost anything advertised with a Chemical Brothers soundtrack would pass my test.

    OP's list is right on for me. I own Kouros and Terre d'Hermes, and I keep trying to get into them. I can kind of see the appeal, but. . . not really working for me.

    Fahrenheit: again, I keep trying. Not much luck so far.

    Others mentioned here: Guerlain Vetiver, Prada anything, Polo anything, The Dreamer. . . still not really doing it for me.

    4. Heritage
    5. Derby

    Good list of things not to like.
    Black Aoud-loud, overbearing, and horrible, but with the love it gets I wondered if my sample was wrong, so I ordered another; still horrible. In fact anything from Montale except Dark Aoud.
    ISM-I love Serge and Chris but ISM took 3-4 hours before the carrots wore off, unwearable.
    Terre d'Hermes Parfum-first half hour I liked, after that became a scrubber.

    Honorable Mention-anything from Guerlain except LIDGE, guerlinade and the oakmoss chypre bases are not for me.
