    I've smelled the vast majority of fragrances listed over the last 2 pages, and although Secretions Magnifiques is pretty unpleasant, it pales in comparison to FCUK Him.

    I found that from a distance of a foot or more, SM was really not that bad. A metallic, milky floral that was unique, but didn't induce any real annoyance from me.
    FCUK Him, however, is disgusting stuff. I blind bought a bottle and it still sits in my collection as a taunting reminder of how blind buying isn't always successful.
    Someone here compared a fragrance to bugspray (one of the Creeds, I believe, possibly MI) but if bugspray were sprayed into a bucket of floor cleaner, you might just be able to sell the resulting concoction. Lord knows it'd smell superior to FCUK Him.

    Bulgari Aqua smelled just as bad on me, but it smells alright on some other people, so it didn't get the nod.
    FCUK Him smelled terrible on everyone that tested it.

    There are some obvious stinkers like Secretions Manifiques. However, some commonly found fragrances that I could never jive with would be Issey Miyake, DG The One (not terrible, but not great IMO), Miel Bois in which the honey can come across as cat piss, perhaps some others. There is not many that I consider vile save a few like white diamonds, sunflowers, vanilla fields, etc.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    My latest addition to this list would be nu_be Mercury.

    Smells like a dirty fish tank that is drained of most of the water then some lemons thrown in. Stick your head in that fish tank and take a deep breath. That's Mercury.

    It makes me recoil. Not because it smells bad (a lot of fragrances do, but don't give me that reaction). I recoil because my body seems to be telling me that it's not good to breathe it in - as if it's unhealthy to inhale whatever that is. This seems more like a gag gift than an attempt at a serious perfume.

    I am actually a very big fan of the original 5 nu_be scents. Not this one.
    Seasonal favorites:

    1. Creed - Spice & Wood
    2. Creed - Aventus
    3. Dior - Vetiver
    4. by Kilian - Incense Oud
    5. Puredistance - Black
    6. by Kilian - Cruel Intentions
    7. Armani Privé - Oud Royal
    8. Brückner - Aoud 1
    9. Neela Vermeire - Trayee
    10. Creed - Royal Oud

  17. #137

    MKK
    Chergui
    Old Spice
    I hate these because their special musk drydown puts me off.

    Another SL is a contender:
    Fleurs d'Oranger - a brash, obnoxious concoction, mainly tuberose. I trashed it.

    It doesn't surprise me someone as young as yourself doesn't like this scent, but "positively terrrible" I cannot agree upon. CD fahrenheit is a potent, quality scent that I think everyone eventually comes around to for the most part. it's a classic.

    Do you mind me asking what kind of bottles you have in your collection? I can see you're interested in Creeds, but what do you wear and actually own and like?

    A couple of Lush fragrances spring to mind - Icon, which was a nasty, chemical orange squash smell. Like the own-brand sugar-free stuff you had as a kid. I liked the idea of The Bug, but the labdanum was so overpowering it crushed everything else and smelt too dank and electrical to be anything good.

    There are too many and I have the feeling it's becoming worse! The mediocrity and badness in the world of (niche) perfumes is increasing!

    Seriously, out of 100 samples there are maybe 5 to 10 frags that I like (not love), the rest is utter crap!

    I concur. It's been a long time and few and far between are the new scents I find FBW or even tolerable. I don't even review most of them because they are either inconsequential or nasty.

    I remember when I first joined I was getting stick from veterans on here for talking about Creed also, I found the abuse I got complete snobbery. For me it was my first niche fragrance I was interested in and now i've explored many more avenue's since because of it. Everyone starts somewhere. Its like when the new guys come to the gym every January. Most of them lift with poor form and don't make it to March. There is a handful of them that learn the right techniques, stay committed to the lifestyle change and it is they who will have the physique they desire on a daily basis for the rest of their lives. But, these guys only survive when the more established veterans give them patience, help them with their techniques and aid them to maturity.
