    Default WORST Fragrance you have smelt?

    Whats the worst fragrance that offended your nose?

    Personally the top of angel men is my current worst. (only the top, drydown is amazing)

    As for now i have yet to come across something i hate.

    In my opinion, Kouros left me with some of the least pleasant olfactory experiences.

    Curve (seems like women's perfume)
    LeMale (in spite of the name, unmanly imo)
    Fahrenheit (oil and grease)
    Grey Flannel (Unmanly. Liked this one for a short time, then figured out it smells like those little pink, floral, decorative bathroom soaps, but in a strong way. Don't really want to smell like that, thank you).

    An ether based parfum that my grandfather had - stench from the blend of rose & heavy civet that wouldn't go away for a few days (yes, i did shower). I threw it away the same day...

    Smell Bent Debonair. OMG it smells like burning oak moss, and extremely pungent.. so much that it makes Grey Flannel's opening seem weak.
    My Ultimate Top 5:

    Fahrenheit (1988)
    Paul Smith Man (2009)
    Burberry London (2006)
    Prada Amber pour Homme (2006)
    Arpege pour Homme (2005)

    Secretions Magnifique is f**king horrifying.

    I would say Secretions Magnifique, but I don't consider it a fragrance.

    So, I'll say:

    Cartier Pasha

    Versace l'homme

    Polo (original)

    And most of the the other "hairy chest" category.

    Got to be either Quorum or that hideous mess billowing out of the Hollister shop down the road. Either one to me is what hell smells like.

    Ungaro III

    Anyone else who had bad experiences with vodka will understand.

    New York Oud, Aramis, Quorum are close contenders.

    I really did not like Kouros or Montale Black Aoud.


    But there's a lot of cheap women's fragrances I come in contact with quite regularly that disgust me--I just don't know the names of them or what they are. I was about 50 feet behind a woman in the supermarket parking lot yesterday and I could taste her perfume it was so strong (and equally gross). It was kind of like she sprayed herself down with Glade air freshner before leaving a gas station restroom.

    Secretions Magnifique is just not a frag IMO. It is just a 'why'.

    Top scrubber for me was Versace Blonde amongst a few more I cannot think of.

    Every once in a while, this kind of thread appears on BN, so I'll write a generic response: one man's trash is another's treasure. That said, the worst frags I've tried are: Aramis and Kiss for Him. Scrubbers.

    D&G By Man. Smells like a man with woefully neglected butt hygiene wearing Avon Sweet Honesty. I know it's a Basenotes darling, but I can totally see why it bombed.
