    JPG Le Male. First time I ever wore it I wasn't convinced, later that day I came down with a severe vomiting bug. Now whenever I smell it I gag.

    Granted extenuating circumstances, but can't be many fragrances that make people want to throw up.

    Karma by Lush was the worst smell ever. Metallic fake orange squash - like the orange scent in a kitchen cleaner.

    Utterly horrible.

    All currents versions from: Dsquared2, Davidoff, PRabanne, Dior mainstream ones (maybe two "meh" here), Joop, and the cherry on the top would be Carolina Herrera line!

    Obsession for Men is a very good shout, only beaten to worst place by Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille.

    Secretions Magnifique and Joop Homme make me feel a bit sick. I think that both are jokes but the latter not knowingly.

    Carlo Corinto Vetyver - expectations were high, but I wouldn't spray it on my neighbor's cat...appalling.

    Also, 1 Million. It smells like the urine from the cast of the Jersey Shore on MTV. An insult to fragrance as much as they are an insult to the rest of America.

    Cheers,

    Some perfumes are as fragrant as an infants flesh, sweet as an oboes cry, and greener than the spring; While others are triumphant, decadent or rich; Having the expansion of infinite things, like ambergris and musk, benzoin and frankincense, which sing the transports of the mind and every sense.

    Most of my btes noires have alraedy been mentioned: Knize Ten, Quorum, Aramis, Grey Flannel, MKK, Black Afgano, Ferrari Uomo, Orange Star.

    So I'll add Turtle Vetiver Front (aka Dead Crab) and the unspeakable urinous horror in the dark green bottle with the lips on top, which should remain unnamed.

    Keith Urban's Phoenix smells unbelievably cheap. And that's worse than strange, odd, unusual or weird.

    Knize Ten smells like an Army Surplus store. The Third Reich meets Canadian Tire.

    After living with it for a while, Bas de Soie has gotten on my bad side. It's such an unfriendly scent.
    Kiss Him is another wretched thing: Luden's cherry cough-drops and b.o. Not a grand combination.

    Not to sound overly sensitive, but I work with women who have been beaten up by husbands, and kids who have had unspeakable things done to them...Doesn't compare to fragrances AT ALL...
