    Fahrenheit Not a fan at all, couldn't get through the first 30 minutes or so.

    A*Men Pure Malt I can't figure out why this has such a following. There are numerous boozy fragrances out there that do it better than this.

    Amouage Opus VI This has a perfect score in the database but I simply do not find it appealing. I think it is quite well composed, in terms of how it progresses and changes over time. But, I don't like the main accord of pepper and amber, especially with near nuclear projection.

    This is how I feel about it as well. This was one of my favorite fragrances for years. The new stuff they put out now is a complete waste of money in terms of longevity, sillage and smell whether it be the parfum or edt. The old edt I use to have was fantastic.

    YSL Rive Gauche (yuck! Old man in a bottle to me)
    Terre D'Hermes (I have a sample of the edp and hate it. I do like the edt slightly more).
    Chanel Egoiste (love Platinum, but hate the animalic note in this one).
    Habit Rouge (same as Egoiste, weird, funky, animalic note)
    Gucci Pour Homme II (love cinnamon & black tea, but the violet leaf note clashes & doesn't go with these).
    Bvlgari Black (leather note is way too strong & gets up my nose giving me a headache. Same goes for Midnight in Paris)
    Blue de Chanel (like the top, but not the base. Too much incense & nothing else).
    Bond No 9 New Haarlem (too sickly sweet. All I get is maple syrup over a weird woody note. No coffee to me)
    Cartier Roadster (the mint needs to be sweeter & the sour/herbal notes need to be toned down).

    This is probably #1 on my dislike list.

    Also

    DH and DHI
    LIDGE--Didn't hate and was well made but I found it too "perfumey"
    Rive Gauche--Way too overpowering and not my barbershop
    Musc Ravageur
    YSL L'Homme and all its Nuits and others--too powdery sweet
    Fahrenheit(2011-12..newer..not classic 88-90s)
    LeMale
    L'Eau D'Issey

    So basically everything anyone else likes

    I have to admit that I dislike (even hate) most of the Serge Lutens-stuff, but the number 1 on my "hate-list" is definitely "Messe de Minuit" in the current edt-formulation. I can't even tell how much I hate this cheap and vulgar smelling mess of a perfume!

    Creed Millesime Imperial - Salt water + bleach + a drop of lemon. I keep trying it. Thinking I gotta be missing something... nope.

    Dior Leather Oud - The smell of barnyard animals. Why anyone would go out of their way to smell like this, I have no idea.

    Amouage Interlude Man - A complete mess of notes. Ghastly.

    Frederic Malle Musc Ravageur - Smells like urine to me.

    Knize 10 - A sweaty dated leather scent that reminds me of the 1980s. I can't help but think of the Village People when I smell this.

    YSL Opium - The epitome of cloying. I can't wait to get it off me within 5 minutes.

    OK, erm, well, first off I really dislike Davidoff Cool Water. To me it's a horribly fake scent of the seaside, but it's not just that - there is something in it that I appear to be sensitive to and which actually makes me gag. Maybe it's calone?

    I also don't like Green Irish Tweed. I don't know what it has in it, but for me it has an aquatic feel that I really don't like. But I disagree with those who say it's close to Cool Water - I find it really very different. To me it is much better than Cool Water, with a superior and more subtle blend of fragrances. But I still don't like it.

    I'm not a fan of Terre d'Hermes, or Sycomore, or any of those with that fake woody smell - is that the Iso Super E? I don't dislike them, and I think they're fairly decent, but I wouldn't buy a bottle.

    Dior Fahrenheit, unfortunately, I don't like either. I say unfortunately, because I love the immediate opening. To me there seems to be a great floral/fruity thing that I can't quite put my finger on... but then the gasoline/petroleum hits, and I get a hint of rubber too. It's like I've stepped out into a garden full of flowers and fruit trees, and suddenly from nowhere comes a gang riding Harleys and rips the place up.

    Yes. Mostly older fragrances that folks have warm feelings for but no longer smell good.

    Agree with Fahrehneit. I like it but the gasoline is too much. I will say that those who have smelled vintage say it was much better, so maybe that's the reason for this (I've only smelled current).

    Kouros. Dated

    Most older Guerlains, including Habit Rouge. I think folks have a love affair with the history of Guerlain, so they decide they love these scents because they want to.

    Most anything with amber and vanilla in the base just rubs me the wrong way. I have allergic reactions to it. Too sweet: Many Lutens, Thierry Mugler A*Men and Pure Malt/Coffee/Shot/etc, L' Instant de Guerlain Extreme, DHI, Most fougere's: Caron Pour Homme, even Invasion Barbare (this one is close to Ok). I would much rather have a dry woods or incense base than a vanilla or amber base in a fragrance. Amber takes over and kills every other note in the long term or second half of the day in most fragrances. Amber can be used so it's not too sweet, but this level of restraint is very rare because it smells so good initially and that's what sells the bottles in the store - the first hour of scent. But then, Wham! Sweetness.

    Interlude Man - Memoir Man for tween. They dump a tons of gourmand note onto Memoir Man and call it a day. Smells like something from Aquolina with a pencil shaving smell underneath that doesn't go well together with it

    Almost all I tried of Creed, except Bois de Portugal. Aventus made me feel tacky: upon applying it I felt like a fat man in his fifties, dressed with an 1980's silk shoulder-padded shirt by Versace, with a thick golden necklace, golden rings, full of sweat, hairs all over my body, driving a convertible and surrounded by a stock of bimbos with oversized boobs (I kept the bimbos in my mind, of course, but got rid of the rest).

    Same with Amouage. Even the only one I liked, Gold, smellt to me a little bit too... "niche edgy".

    Blind bought Piper Nigrum after ravishing reviews by a well-respectd BNer who seems to have vanished (it has been said that after rehab he was very succesfull at overcoming perfume-related TOC). Well, big disapointment: "synthetic" would be a lame adjective for me to describe it.

    Other ones I enjoy but don't think are worth the attention given by many: Terre D'Hermes, I like it, but don't find it THAT great. Mitsouko, def. old lady - like. Lalique Encre Noir: go for Sycomore - the first one's drydown is horrid.

    On the other hand, there are many others that are ignored I find really good: Lalique The Horse, for instance.

    I inisist this discussion board should be studied in depth when it comes to understanding the mechanisms through which purchase decision-making is made from discussions posted. It seems there is wide consensus based on variables beyond branding that I can't identify. Guess it would be the beginning of a specialty known as "linguistic-based marketing".

    Sorry, I diggressed.

    When I was a newbie I thought they must be great and owned many bottles, but wearing anything by Creed almost always ends up being comparable to the feeling of my d*ck not working correctly. I want to be satisfied but it isn't happening. Hate when that happens. :-)

    Maybe wearing Creed and having 50 mg of sildenafil one hour before applying can be the solution to that feeling.

    Hold on, mods will censor this reply, so here comes another one: Grey Flannel. I like it for the momories it brings, but the blend itself... I would say it is slightly better than Fahrenheit.

    Platinum Egoiste - definetely gets a negative from me , it's just so metallic , sharp , synthetic .
    Allure Flankers - I don't dislike or hate them but it's just that I don't feel anything when I smell them , they're just boring and generic .

    Terre'd'Hermes

    I was very disappointed after hearing so many recommendations (especially on hotter climate, WTF) on this and quite a lot of positive feedback. But it smelled like pencil sharpener to me. Ugh.

    Terre de Hermes, just seemed pointless.
    Bulgari Black, completely unwearable.
    Everything I've tried from Annik Goutal, they smell like dead people.
    Everything I've tried from Czech & Speake
    MKK, smells like someone took a dump on my chest.

    Terre d'Hermes
    All Montale except Dark Aoud
    Tobacco Vanille

    I can truly recognize the beauty and artistry in many I've listed, but bottom line is that I don't like them and would never wear them again.
