    Default What fragrance was so bad you HAD to wash it off?

    I was testing out Interlude Man today and I could not take it anymore. It was the first time I could remember having to wash a fragrance off. What fragrances did you guys HAVE to wash up because you just couldnt take it anymore?

    I was sick the first time I tried A*Men and had that gag reflex and had to wash it off. Even then I awoke in the middle of the night and could still smell its stench and had to have a shower.

    Blind buy went horribly wrong. Sold it off and didn't lose any money.

    Fahrenheit 32 and Body Kouros. Both are just horribly vile. Thankfully, I could return the Body Kouros and I tested F32 in Sephora. I'll never do that again.

    Over-sprayed Gucci Pour Homme I one time and had to wash it off before I got sick.
    Eau Sauvage Parfum comes to mind as well, but I have a very sensitive nose. If I over spray anything (meaning more than 2 sprays for me), especially chemical smelling scents like Versace Pour Homme, I get a headache and my stomach turns.

    Cuir de Russie by Chanel is absolutely rank. Like the handbag of an ageing whore. Gave it a second chance today, and it still has that unmistakeable rotten leather and iris nightmare.

    EDIT: Also, all the rubbing alcohol in the world is powerless to stop it!

    Joop: turns my stomach just thinking about it

    Breath Of God: I gagged, and couldn't get it off of me fast enough.

    Pasha de Cartier: horrible stuff

    Givenchy Pi, Le Male, Spice Bomb, Fahrenheit, A*Men, Escape, RL Romance, Bleu de Chanel, Clinique Happy, Ferragamo PH, Curve, Nautica Sport, Van Cleef PH, lolita lempika

    So many more i can't think of right now. ALL scrubbers.

    I can't stand overly sweet, or synthetics. Also, those pungent, punch you in the face "powerhouse" scents.....i run from them.

    I'm really tempted with Aseel right now. There's that "fake rose" scent that I never much cared for.

    EDIT: and it's gone.
