    Default What was the last fragrance you had to scrub off, or at least contemplated doing so?

    I just sampled "Carnal Flower" by Malle, I never thought i'd want to scrub a Malle fragrance off of me.

    It was far too feminine and over powering. After scrubbing, the melon, floral, coconut blend is still lingering.

    I can at least say it is some strong juice. However, a juice I wouldn't mind ever smelling again.

    Anything you guys completely disliked lately?

    Amazing! I saw the title of the thread and came here to say the exact same thing. Low and behold, it's the first post!

    I sampled Caron Un Pour Homme for the first time the other day. I can't say it's a bad fragrance. It's definitely a unique composition, just not anything I'd ever want to smell like. I found it overwhelming and a bit nauseating. Definitely a scrubber for me.

    I'ma bit embarassed to admit this but: Habit Rouge. Much as I love it on paper, the peony (I think it's peony, otherwise the peonies I bought a few months ago had been doused in Habit Rouge) is absolutely overpowering on my skin. I literally couldn't smell anything else.

    Tobacco Vanille - this was a couple of years back and once the sexy opening was gone I tried to be patient with the vanilla thing you're left with but it was just too much . . .

    Angel Men Pure Leather... but not because I hated the fragrance. I love it, but man does it go on forever. It was already the next day and I wanted to put on something else, but I could still detect it on my skin. Crazy longevity on me.

    I have had to scrub off many Bond no. 9 frags, the underlying plastic chemical nauseates me. But, the last one I scrubbed off was Creed Original Vetiver. There is just something there underlying that-as the British say-gets up my nose.

    Only a few of the older generation still use that one! I've only ever had to scrub one fragrance, Secretions Magnifiques.

    Oh btw, a more modern version of "gets up my nose" is "gets right on my tits"!

    What's embarrassing about that? It's one of the worst things I've ever smelled. A definite scrubber.

    None so far, even the ones with rather (at least to me) unpleasant notes I have gotten to become somehow accustomed to.
