    Lol that's funny.

    I think the funniest one that i got was when i was using SL tubereuse criminelle, not so much of a comment but more of a funny look i guess

    It was in the morning and while i was about to leave home, my mom with a worried / curious look asked me if had smelt some flower scent. ( There's a belief in Indonesia that if you suddenly smell tuberose / jasmine it means that there's a ghost passing by ). Knowing her look, I told her that i was using a tuberose fragrance. Then with her relieved look she said,"Oh, I thought it was 'Something' else"

    Yes, the soapy neroli juice that everyone has been raving as the non-cologney safe bet.

    They said it was the worst cologne they smelled in their life and it reminded them of witch hazel and hospital bandages.

    No matter what you wear, someone is going to not like it.
    Maybe it's the sperm note?

    For me, Knize Ten.

    My wife doesn't like Burberry London. She said it smells like Pine bathroom cleaner. She also hated Encre Noire just saying, "why would anyone ever want to smell like that!!?".

    I also received a negative comment at work regarding LIDGE. It wasn't at me directly but someone said something smelled bad.

    Costume National Intense - "why do u smell like hookers and cigarettes?"

    Rive Gauche - "all you're missing is slicked back hair, a polyester suit, and a used car lot."

    I think the only "negative" comment I've directly gotten is from my mom. She said 1861 gave her a headache and was just not vry good smelling. I didn't mind it, but I had high hopes.

    My son and daughter dislike Oud 27 - in fact it's the only one they forbid me to wear in their presence. My daughter made a special, ernest, heartfelt request that I would not wear it on Parent's Evening at her school..and also that I put my phone on silent because my (self-made) ringtone was too 'weird' and would alarm her friends and discredit her sensible reputation.

    *Sigh*

    I would add that my mother doesn't like anything about me (including what I smell like or what I've done or what I like) and also moans at the TV all night and dislikes every other person on the planet because they're 'rubbish' look 'weird' or they're 'stupid' or 'can't speak properly'.

    I have said this before on a thread about funny stories regarding perfumes, but I will say it again here....
    I was at a party and slightly overdosed on Tabac Blond extrait. A friend of mine said that I smelled like a 17th century whore.
    We laughed about it all evening !

    Ohh the looks I get when using my decant of Pure Leather. I keep it and other frags in sock drawer. Have to keep it in a plastic bag to insure it does not leak on the socks.

    My fiancé is VERY vocal about my frags. She'll tell me immediately if she hates something. If she likes it, it may take a while. If she loves it, she's clings to me like a magnet

    I bought a slightly used musc Ravageur a long time ago, since I was struggling with wether I loved it or hated it.

    First time I wore it around her, she gave me a "ooof you stink!"
    That pretty much sealed it for me.

    People don't tend to like Montale Cuir d'Arabie...It is kinda Avante Garde.

    My girl kept on telling me how she could not stand it. I kept on telling her this is what a man should smell like, fresh out of fixing a car. When we were at a traffic congestion that, she asked me "is that the smoke from the cars around us or is that you?"

    Fahrenheit Absolute. Girlfriend, who enjoys all my other scents so far, genuinely loathes it and asked me to not wear it in a 10 mile radius around her. My second and last try to see if she'd change her mind about it lol.

    Great thread topic.

    Both my mom and my wife HATED Guerlain Derby. In fact, my wife has told me all the older Guerlains smell "like something an old man/lady would wear" (Mitsouko, Habit Rouge).

    This makes a lot of sense. Many (not all, of course) designer scents are for mass appeal and to sell as many bottles as possible (appeal to the masses). Only makes sense that the large designers will shy away from scents that have high negative feedback. Niche brands may be more open to push the envelope. Just my opinion.

    The above is part of why I find most indie scents (not designer, not niche but small time outfits) awful. They are overpowering and over-the-top most of the time.

Or old lady perfume!"...when I said it was my fragrance, his face squished and all I could think was - "THANK GOD I wasn't wearing Leather Oud, or he would have jumped out the window".

    For the record, I love both Leather Oud and Piguet's Oud.

    Also, for some reason, my partner hates Bois d'Armenie by Guerlain and will not let me live it down. Even half a squirt makes him go open a window. But the ladies at work all say they want to eat me up when I wear any of the above...go figure.

    Guerlain Derby, which is one of my favorite scents.

    The worst remark I received on it, "That cologne smells like some cheap Avon aftershave."

    I was mortified. I had just spent 200 bucks for it.

    wow. was it from men or women, what age group, and what were the circumstances?

    Im curious because this gets pushed as a masterpiece, and I've actually gotten a compliment on it. But it goes to show masterpieces for fragheads dont necessarily translate to mainstream appeal.

    Once at work, on a day that it was particularly warm in the office, I walked by a coworker and she said, "something smells like Comet." Now I'm not certain it was me, but I doubt it was coincidence. I was wearing Santal 33.

    My wife for one (30) absolutely hates it. The others were male mid 30's and female mid 20's.

    John Varvatos by John Varvatos - the best comment was "you smell like a foreigner"

    My wife also dislikes Himalaya by Creed because it smells "perfumey"
