    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!

    1) Farenheit - WTF. how is this even econsidered cologne????
    2) Dirty English - liquid dirt.
    3) Thierry Mugler Ice*men - Way too much patchouli just overwhelms and makes you gag.
    4) " " A*Men - Never caught on to the whole "wearing a desert" thing, leave that for bath and body works.
    5) La Nuit D'Lomme - Had high hopes before I smelled it, now...way too "off"
    6) Burberry Brit for men - Womens is amazing, mens is a mix between young man and old lady.



    I have plenty more those are just the most depressing.

    I honestly thought that Tom Ford Extreme smelled like sh*t when I first tried it.

    And I honestly still do.

    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.
    Current Summer Favorites:

    1. Creed - Original Cologne
    2. Xerjoff - Nio
    3. Creed - Aventus
    4. The Different Company - De Bachmakov

    6. Tom Ford - Grey Vetiver
    7. Montale - Aoud Legacy
    8. Dior - Homme Sport 2012
    9. Tom Ford - Rive d'Ambre

    Habit Rouge and Tiffany -- I think it's the POWDER in both that don't agree with me -- along with Farenheit (for other reasons) would be near the top of this list for me.

    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.

    Having to smell it on a colleague all day today has prompted me to really, intensely dislike La Nuit De L'Homme. I don't think I'll ever view it in a positive light again.

    There is something about Live Jazz that throws me off and I now it's just ME. I am probably allergic to the synthetic cilantro note, though it does not mean that it's not loved as many people do.

    • Spicebomb (Don't get the love at all. Hated this at first sniff, hated it even more on second sniff.)
    • Cool Water (I prefer GIT by leaps and bounds over this.)
    • Aramis (I like leather chypres - see PdN New York and John Varvatos Vintage - but this isn't my cup of tea.)
    • Gucci Envy for Men (Smelled like Old Spice on my skin. And Old Spice is far cheaper.)
    • Gendarme (Smells like the hotel soaps that Marriott used to give out before they went to Bath & Body Works products.)
    • YSL Live Jazz (Smelled like a dirty catbox and lemon air freshener to me.)
    • Lolita Lempicka Au Masculin (Too much anise. Interestingly, a family member who loved it on me raised a ruckus when I swapped it!)
    • Emporio Armani Diamonds for Men (One of only a handful of scrubbers that I've ever had to face.)


    Honorable mention:
    • L'eau d'Issey Pour Homme (Great on others, but not on me.)
    "The stench / The stench / Of summer sex / And CK Eternity / Oh hell, yes"

    If the title of this thread was "...fragrances that you LIKE" I feel the same names will pop up. I have to constantly check the subject of this thread. Weird in a big way.

    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.
