    Am I the only one who gets perverse pleasure from seeing high flyers like Knize Ten, Musc Ravageur, Chergui and Santal 33 taking their lumps in a hatchet job thread?

    Can't say I've ever tried any 'perfume' that induced the sort of negative reactions described in this thread. Compared to some of the truly gag-inducing aromas we sometimes have to endure on public transport / in public toilets, etc. I find the vast majority of products sold as 'perfume' to be not unpleasant even if I wouldn't want to buy them or wear them myself. To be honest, the thing I find 'worst' in some perfumes is simply that they disappoint me or bore me, but I don't think I've ever tried one that disgusted me.

    Two:

    1. Musc Kublia Khan. This is rank, offensive stuff. I realize people say they wear it to work. I'd be fired.

    and . . . the winner . . . by a mile . . .

    Jovan Musk for Men (current formulation) - Smells like rancid hairspray and no name cheap laundry soap.

    And how about some aquatic fragrances that makes you smell like a rotten seaweed infused in alcohol mixed with the excrements of a diseased jellyfish?

    I almost forgot to add Miel De Bois by SL..ferret in a bottle, no joke. I'd go to Petsmart if I wanted that smell on me.

    Rubirosa..yep, aquatics in male scents gross me out. Musky seawater, no thanks! It's so hard for me to find male scents that I like.

    You just reminded me... I thought Bvlgari Aqua and especially Aqua Marine were gross... like stagnant seawater, maybe some dead fish floating around, and stinky seaweed on the sand baking under a hot sun. How people love either of those two scents just astounds me.

    You've all got me really curious about this one now. I know a few fragrances that contain a metallic note. Is it similar to any of those ?

    Don't hate me, but there is a note in L'artisan Havana Vanille and Miller Harris Fleur Oriental that makes me heave. What the Julio is it???

    - - - Updated - - -

    I must say, I am amazed to see some on this list, like Chergui (beautiful), Musc Ravageur (triumphant), Flowerbomb(huge compliment getter for me), Osmanthe Yunnan(how can this offend anyone, it's a whisper?), D&G pour Homme(room freshener blah but not one that will make me run for the hills)

    You are all totally entitled to your opinions of course!

    It is so interesting how widely our preferences vary.

    SM has just the kind of diseased ocean notes referred to in post #72. You really should try it. Seriously.

    I am with you on this.
    Every time there's a "worst fragrance of all time" thread (and let's face it we don' t have to wait long for each new one) I get more and more curious about what this actually smells like.
    Of course I'm not going to put my hand in my pocket to find out...

    I try to appreciate and understand most fragrances, but some just don't sit well with me. I'd have to say some of the older powerhouse fragrances like Polo Green which is my Dad's favorite (if overly applied), Kouros, and Aramis. Special shout out to Perry Ellis 360 Blue and 360 original.

    Probably the old man who sat beside me in choir tonight at church. Great nice chap, but he smelled like a combo of absorbine junior, horehound candy and vitalis. He smelled horrible.

    You pretty much just have to try it. It's almost a pleasant, light floral, but there's an element that is just....disturbing. It's not one you just spray and smells horrible at first sniff, but after a minute or two your mind starts going "WTF is this?"

    We all like different stuff. I wear vanillas that would make others spew bile.

    Luca Turin gave Osmanthe Yunnan 5 stars, I agree with him on nothing but this fragrance and Bvlgari Black LOL.

    Not something worst, as a matter of fact a very successful iconic fragrance to many.
    Dior Posion, the original one. I swear sometimes on some hazy days, i could see a whole train of Fifty Shades of Grey readers dragging on its silage...

    Oh wow that brings back memories. Absorbine Junior has to be one of the worst-smelling products I've ever encountered. When I was a kid there was a bottle of it in our medicine cabinet and I sometimes used to go up to it and smell it just for the loathing-and-horror-type thrill. Worse than Secretions Magnifiques by a mile. I guess it's all relative.
