    Chanel No 5. I cannot for the life of me wear it, but there's no denying it remains a timeless classic.

    +1.

    I respect GIT, but each time I wore it, I got what I consider to be negative feedback. I've been asked if it was Cool Water, which I consider negative only because it'd be like buying a BMW and having people ask "Is that the new Ford Fiesta?" But the last time I wore it, I was told I smelled, and I quote, "conservative." I asked if she meant that it wasn't edgy or maybe it smelled like an old man and she said "No. Whatever that is, it makes you smell like a Republican." Her words, not mine, but I completely understand what she meant.

    I have a lot of respect for Green Irish Tweed. GIT is absolutely unquestionably superb. Of this, I have no doubt. But it isn't something I want to smell like. That being said... if climbing the corporate ladder were a priority to me, or if I wanted to project a sense of money and power plus quiet confidence, I'd buy GIT and it would be the only thing I'd wear. I should note that, in my opinion, the quiet confidence aspect is what makes GIT a work of pure genius.

    GIT is a masterpiece. I have nothing but respect for it, but it isn't for me.

    I think these are all great (especially when some of them were initially released), but just wouldn't/couldn't wear them.

    I would have to say Lagerfeld cologne. An old school classic. Just not for me.

    I would have to say GIT aswell. It's perfectly put together and is a smooth ride, but I just wouldn't like to wear it.

    Another is Rien by ELdO -- I admire it very much, it doesn't compromise, but it's too bitter for me.

    Kouros would be the one for me. I can't wear it because the urinal smell lingers on me for hours and I never get to the honey drydown that everybody raves about. But, I had a friend who wore it almost every day back in the early 90's and it smelled great on him. So, I know it does smell great - just not on my skin.

    I find it interesting that GIT has gotten so many "votes" in this thread. I've always considered it a very inoffensive and unobtrusive fragrance - i.e. one that everybody likes.

    There's a big difference between liking it and wanting to wear it.

    GIT, I respect the effort but I don't want to smell like cool water.
    In short, most creeds give me that vibe. Quality ingredients but pedestrian smell. You can get the same smell for cheap.
