    Most likely, the majority of Coty scents in my wardrobe - pleasant if generic notes, yet close to zero longevity.

    Worst purchase i ever made was Pasha Cartier. I mistook it for something else. And ended up with something that literally made me sick.

    Also:

    Le Male: Still have my first bottle from the 90's
    Pi: Nauseatingly sweet
    Emporio HE: Something about it rubs me the wrong way now.

    Le Labo Patchouli 24. Don't get me wrong; I think it is a great scent. It's just that, at least on my skin, that fireplace/bbq sauce smell never dries down into anything and it just gets old to me.

    Are you kidding me?!
    Many of those you mentioned are in my top ten and will buy them definitely if they run out!

    - - - Updated - - -

    By the way, I have 1-2 backup bottles of some of them!
    What a big difference in tastes!

    Can't think of anything in my collection that I wouldn't consider buying again if the need arose and was justified.

    Antaeus - Had to get rid of it as I got many negative reactions from people wearing this one.

    "Dior Eau Sauvage Perfume". I disliked it very much and could not even wash it off.
    May be that's the only good thing about it, it lasted for ever.

    Only counting the ones I got full bottles of:

    Polo green (the latest version is nothing like the old stuff.. scent and longevity are poor now)
    Bvlgari Black (longevity just ain't there)
    Oscar de la Renta pour Lui (nice, but too similar to One Man Show which I own and like, so ODLRPL is redundant).
    D&G The One (didn't buy this, given to me as a gift, but horrid longevity).
    Burberry Touch (too powdery and feminine)
    Jovan Musk (heavy feminine perfume vibe to me)

    Agree. Sampled it at Neiman Marcus, and didn't seem like anything special. Might buy and give it more of a chance if it was *way* cheaper.

    Well, I feel that way about VanCleef & Arpels PH. We all have different tastes, I reckon.

    Silver Mountain Water. I'm trying to get rid of this stuff from more than 3 years...I don't know what I was thinking when I bought it.

    I really like Aventus, but I'd definitely be cautious to buy it again because it's just so damn inconsistent.

    Aside from that, I'm trying to get rid of my Allure Homme Sport, and will probably sell Dior Homme Sport and L'Eau D'Issey at some point in the new year. I don't think I'll ever buy a 'Sport' fragrance ever again.

    Most of the fragrances in my wardrobe. Not because I don't like them, but because I'd like to try other fragrances that I haven't smelled before.

    Default Re: what scent won't you buy again?

    I don't imagine I'd buy any scent again just because I'd rather enjoy something new rather than more of the same (I've never bought a second bottle of any scent).

    In my small collection D&G Light Blue is something I'd replace if I had the chance. It serves it's purpose as a safe, inoffensive, versatile scent, but there are others that could fill that same role and do so a little better (e.g. Aqua de Gio, John Varvatos Artisan).

    I also find that I almost never wear my Lagerfeld KL Homme because I've grown to dislike the strong powdery note in it.

    Way too many to list. Silver Mountain Water, Montale Marine Fougere, Chez Bond, Noir de Noir, Creed Spce and Wood... many many more.

    Won't buy anything by Le Labo after trying three (Rose, Patch, Santal).

    Somehow the chemistry just doesn't work with mine. Not pleasant.

    All the John Varvatos fragrances. They all smell pretty decent, especially for designer fragrance, (don't get me wrong they don't approach the designer greats like M7, DH, DHI, Egoiste, or Pure Malt, etc). However, the longevity is appalling an quite frankly embarrassing.

    Another, I won't buy again Montale Black Aoud. Too much rose, which I dislike. Dark Aoud for me!
    Top notes of... sweat, gasoline, motor oil; a heart of deer musk and gunpowder, resting on a base of sex and testosterone... Mandom.
