    Default What is the vilest cologne you own and love but everyone around you hates?

    Mine will have to be Giorgio by beverly hills. I love the stuff and enjoy wearing it but it seems my wife and others in the family can't stand the stuff. What's yours?

    The Dreamer by Versace. Unfortunately.
    The sense of smell, like a faithful counsellor, foretells its character.

    Haha, I don't feel like I own any "vile" colognes, I guess...

    Interesting wording of the thread title.

    For me it is Portrait of a Lady - Is it vile? Hell no, but to my wife it is. I mean it pisses her off.

    For me, Grey Flannel. I seem to enjoy the scent so much. Every one tells me it's old mannish and gross. Bah humbug.

    Some people aren't too fond of Palisander...which I love...but I wouldn't classify it as vile, just different. My wife likes it though so all is well.

    Kouros... No brainer for me! Although some don't actually hate it. They just refer to it as an "interesting smell" so that could really go either way. Doesn't stop me from wearing it though, as it plays nicely with me

    +1 Dior Leather Oud... I would say Grey Flannel, but it's only during the opening notes that it's "vile" to me.

    I don't own it, but I have sneaking fondness for Aramis. I think I might be the only person on the planet who does.

    In my opinion, the powerhouse, leathery "heavy hitters" like Fendi Uomo and Drakkar trigger this effect with anyone else, yet I still like them.

    I'm not around enough people to receive many negative comments, but I know that plenty of people here hate Breath of God......which I totally love.

    Never had any neg comments on anything......
    I was told Leather Oud smelled like a petting zoo, but in a good way.
