Caron Un Pour Homme.
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.

Citron Sauvage de Il Profvmo...it seemed to be the detergent Dubro Citron on me...!
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.
Montale's Wood & Spices. Possibly the worst masculine EVER!

One Million and Chanel Allure Homme Sport Extreme. Both about made me and my 16 year old son gag.
Don't recall ever actually scrubbing one off, but I came fairly close recently with Le Male Terrible.
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.
Yatagan! I tried and tried for a while but I just couldn't, I had to scrub it off.
Aventus -- it was like I sprayed air freshener on my skin.
The very last one- Eau Radieuse by Humiecki and Graef, that I recklessly sprayed from a sample I was given

None so far, even the ones with rather (at least to me) unpleasant notes I have gotten to become somehow accustomed to.
I too had to scrub off the wet dog stink of Secretions Magnifiques.
Kurt smells like Teen Spirit
