    Aramis Havana. Besides smelling awful it has been the only fragrance to irritate my skin.

    If we're counting secretions magnifique, then that's my pick.

    However I personally don't even consider it a perfume. More of a novelty, or "art".

    Otherwise, i pick A*Men as worst.

    The answer is simple: MKK. It's the only "bad bathroom fragrance" that smells worse than a the worst of gas station bathrooms that I've encountered. This one needs to go to the bathroom... and be flushed down the Kohler.

    Dishonorable mentions: Emporio Armani Diamonds for Men and Chaps (1979 - fortunately now discontinued).

    Oh come on. The notion that a perfume could smell worse than a gas station bathroom is a bit of a stretch.

    Love In Black, but I think the tester bottle had probably been out too long and not stored very well.

    Halston Z-14 for me. It was so bad I am questioning if it had soured. Cheap though so no loss.

    Did it smell like dehydrated cucumbers? If so, that's accurate.

    Adding Love in White. This made me run away screaming.

    It was an 'off' smell, like cabbage, or peelings, but as I hate cucumber it could very well have been that.

    To this day, when me and my son go to the same shop he always picks up the bottle and raises his eyebrows.

    I give him a 'don't you dare' look, and I quickly move out of any potential blast radius.

    Leather Oud is my worst nightmare.

    Btw, I'm really surprised on how many times Musc Ravageut was mentioned!
    Do you not let it evolve or is it really that repulsive? I know that the beginning of it almost scared me off completely but after about 20 mins you get a beautiful spicy warm vanilla scent...long story short, I own a nice 100 mls bottle now that I enjoy so very much.

    A lot of light weights in here?

    A fragrance I smelled that I ended up throwing away was a bottle I received for free from someone, not sure if it had spoiled. Oudy Woody by Surrati. At least in the beginning, blegh. No me gusta.

    Maybe other than that, literally every single perfume I own/have tried since 2012 has smelled at least 'okay' or w/e, as in like not-nasty/not-horrible to me.
    I wore some Aramis recently, and that was 'okay'. Not necessarily something I'd want to wear though.

    Musc Ravageur - I have heard that it becomes better after some time, but I cannot stand the first 45 minutes so I have washed it off every time I tried it. Now the sample does not get play anymore, and I have accepted that not every scent is for me - even if the notes sound promising.

    +1-Leather Oud. Frederic Malle's MR can be tough on the sniffer in terms of its top notes, but some men just can' get through those first 20 minutes or so as we sometimes make a decision based on top notes imo. P.S.- I sprayed this on my left forearm and just discarded it as it was just off-putting, but I've smelled it well into its progression as well and it was a completely different entity. Wonderful fragrance. Great buy!
