    Montale Black Aoud - can't take rose based fragrances. They smell like my grandma... literally, my grandma wore rose based fragrances.

    Aramis New West for Him, Caron L'Anarchiste, Gucci Envy for Men, and Versace Black Jeans come to mind. I think these are all pretty favorably reviewed.

    Many: Fahrenheit...Antaeus...Aventus...AdG...Guerlain's Vetiver...Knize Ten...

    Most of these, I can at least see why others like them...they just didn't work for me.

    A*Men and Le Male take top billing for me, although both are pretty polarizing. Don't think much of Acqua di Cuba by SMN (smells like stale spit to me), Amouage Gold Men, many Montales, nearly all Bond 9's, Aventus and Erolfa by Creed, Canali Men, and Frank No. 2 by Frank Los Angeles. Creed Green Irish Tweed and Cool Water fall into the overrated and overplayed pile for me.

    Pure Malt, Pure Havanne, Allure Homme Sport. Nothing worth bragging about in my opinion.

    Egoiste has something in it I don't like. Don't get the hype.

    Terre d'Hermes and Egoiste for sure.

    Also Sycomore, Carnal Flower, L'instant De Guerlain Pour Homme Extreme, Ambre Sultan

    Never understood these and I keep on sampling them.

    I sometimes wonder if the popularity of some scents are due to the consequences of pluralistic ignorance.

    Easy one...dhi. I'm convinced the idea behind that frag was conceived in a bar with 2 drunken businessmen who were having a bet on if they could create and produce the worlds ugliest feminine scent and sell it to men. Hats off to their clever marketing!

    I suppose there's no real upside in being an online hater but, wth, since you asked, I find both Terre and Green Irish Tweed to be kind of massively disgusting.

    The only one that comes to mind is La Nuit de L'Homme by YSL. Just far to sweet.

    Now if we're talking about fragrances we don't really get why they are so highly rated, then the list will probably expand a bit.

    Sycomore ... I had a head cold when I sampled it and I am certain it gave me a piercing headache. Which is strange because I get along well with Timbuktu.

    There's something about Knize Ten that grates on my senses...industrial shoe polish?

    One of the top notes in Sycomore makes me very unhappy.

    Lately:

    4. Terre d'Hermes. Used to like it, but now it just smells . . . off . . . to me.
    3. Invasion Barbare. Acrid and unpleasant.
    2. Parfums de Nicolai New York. Turin be damned, powdery, smelly orange is not for me.

    And the current (and forever) winner . . .

    1. Creed Aventus. This scent utterly baffles me. I don't smell anything good in it, and no one around me, when I wore it a few times, liked it even a little bit. And it's not just a single bad batch; I've tried at least three separate batches.
    Current Top Five:

    1. Creed Green Irish Tweed
    2. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
    4. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
    5. Creed Original Vetiver
