    Repel is exactly what I think of when I think of Aramis. I wore this back in the day and my mother told me to go outside and kill some more mosquitoes.

    Secretions Magnifigue: extremely unpleasant.

    That being said, I can think of some very unfriendly fragrances that are definitely quality and wearable. M/Mink comes to mind.

    And old men like that?! Wow, how's that for insulting people with a different opinion! It's not a question of age whether you're able to appreciate the quality of this classic.

    Kouros. As nice as the drydown is I just can't get past the opening. Smells like a public toilet right down to the stale piss, bleach and urinal cakes and it's so loud that there's just no escaping it. No dealing with it. Anyone who can wear classic Kouros, who enjoys the opening or can handle it, is lucky.

    Hypnotic Poison. Was recommended this as a good gourmand. Wore a dab from a mini on one wrist (pressed to the other) and enjoyed it, but showered a few hours after. Tried for a full wearing last night after it had cooled down, and ended up throwing up twice and I had to resort to some extreme measures to cleanse myself and my home; rubbing alchohol didn't work, nor did scrubbing, nor did a shower. In the end I had a put a bunch of peppermint and eucalyptus burners on and rub peppermint all over myself. Even then I was catching the odd whiff. Criminally persistant.

    Funny when I just saw the title Aramis came to mind.

    Unfortunately I always get a headache a while after having sprayed on Route du Vétiver. Maybe I just spray too much, I don't know. Although I want to appreciate how it smells, I cannot and have to wash it away after approximately an hour. Also I haven't yet experienced a fragrance that really upholds (till the drydown) the harshness or dissonance that it might exude via its top notes.

    In terms of headache, PG's Cuir d'Iris gives me a headache and I can't figure out quite why.

    Vraie Blonde makes me nauseous. I can't tolerate it on my skin for more than five minutes.
    Current Top Five:
    1. Bois des Iles--Chanel
    2. George Sand--Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier
    3. L'Ame Soeur--Divine
    4. Violet Blonde--Tom Ford
    5. Santal Blush--Tom Ford

    Ralph Lauren Polo. I don't understand how this was ever a popular crowd pleaser. Times sure have changed!

    Update: I sniffed Aramis today and it doesn't even come close to Polo or Quorum or Azzaro PH in terms of unfriendliness.

    A*Men. If applied properly (12 sprays) it will choke anybody like Darth Vader.

    Honourable mention to Aseel (not really a cologne but something else, something more sinister). Ideal to train dogs or unruly neighbours. My neighbour used to stink out the hallway with cigarettes. I fired back with Aseel. He stopped smoking. Thanks Al Rehab!

    I'm not old or a man and I like Aramis

    And never smelled Secretions Magnifiques on a person, so not sure how bad it is on skin.

    The only perfume I've encountered that gives me a headache is The Body Shop's Dewberry. I actually like it but it hurts my head.

    I also can't bear to be around Narciso Rodgriguez for Her. The musk is so nauseating.
    Currently wearing: Bois des Îles by Chanel
