    I use to think that any cologne is going to be designed to be a "nice" smell, it would just come down to personal preference as to which you like or dont like compared to others.

    That was my opinion until I sampled A*men

    Now this is truly one foul f**king disgusting Frankenstein abomination of a creation.

    If you were to take a freshly asphalted road, cover an area in baby powder, a little caramel and then vomit on top of it that is as close to this scent as I feel you could get. This has been the only cologne (I still debate that fact) ive tried that made me feel physically sick

    A*Men is comfortably out in front in the scrubber stakes at present.

    The OG Azarro. There was an open sampler at a Sears. Went shopping for a decent work-messenger bag, found none, saw the bottle and sprayed.

    I liked the scent 'intent', but it was a bit much, reminded me of English Leather, so had to wash it off. Funny enough, it stuck around on my forearm, and toned down, it smelled much better. In fact, that was when it reminded me of one of my favorites, the original red-boxed Burberry for Men.

    Guerlain Vetiver. Blech. There was still a trace left, reminiscent of the smell of the foam from one of those stainless steel soap dispensers at an Interstate rest stop.

    A*Men. It's just wrong.

    Sometimes I just want to go try these as a dare to myself. A*Men for sure. Secretions Magnifiques too. It sounds horribly nifty and unpleasant. Oh, yes -- and Lisa Kirk's Revolution. "Tear gas, burned rubber and decaying flesh." Sign me up! Give me the pain!

    I agreed that Declaration could be vile most of the times, but what really makes it smells like Gorilla?

    Tubereuse Criminelle. I looked forward to trying it, but I couldn't get over the mentholated smell that made me think of a stale Newport cigarette.

    Not literally "gorilla"...as I have never had the opportunity to actually smell a gorilla's armpit.

    It's a descriptive term.....as if there can exist an armpit odor more vile than that of a human...

    Isn't this thread pretty much evidence of the reason that most colognes, of the major brand designer variety pushed on department store counters, leans to the 'safe, inoffensive' sort, which pleases a wide swath of potential customers, but is looked down upon by many on these boards?

    It's not hard to see why designer brands, often run by public companies with shareholders, or owned by private equity, are risk averse when it comes to their fragrances, or any other line of their business.

    It was called "Patchouli." Something that I found at CVS.

    For me Fahrenheit. Don't know about the original but the current version is rank. Guerlain Vetiver is awful to my nose too. And doesn't everyone want to scrub Secretions Magnifique? Problem is the damned stuff won't wash off...
