    Yeah, come to think of it, I did get some funny looks when I wore Leather Oud.

    Same thing at work for me. And all I was wearing was one spray of LIDGE. Told it was too strong and smelled like women's perfume.

    Every time I wear Ambre Narguille here, people find it too offensive since it can fill the room with 1-2 sprays.

    My mum hate Patchouli in Coromandel and any patchouli heavy scents.

    I have not. Wore it a few times so far - no comments one way or the other.

    Never date insane women.

    For me it was Michael Kors for Men. One spray and people would wince when I approached them. Stopped wearing it. Tossed it out. Only decent thing to do.

    No, but I'll make one now. It costs $250 and it smells just like Theorema Uomo for Men by Fendi that can be had for cheap.

    I was visiting my parents about a year ago, they live in more than 100 year old house made of timber. The house is in perfect condition. Anyway, that day I wore Villoresi's Patchouli. The whole day my father was extremely worried that some of the timbers are decaying. Soon I realized that the earthy tones of my scent is what he is smelling. I told him to just relax and wait: it might not be decaying timbers but something completely different.

    Whenever I wear Acqua Allegoria Pamplelune somebody in the room will say that he or she smells a strong and nasty sweat. I've known to take care of my personal hygiene, so usually I'm not the one who gets the blame. It's kind of depressing that anything acidic smells like sweat to some people. It's the equivalent of being completely color blind and having like 5% vision.

    I wear fragrances every day in my work environment, usually receiving favorable comments or none at all. But there are some types of fragrances that annoy my colleagues, who make negative comments about them - those containing oud (usually complaints by Americans) and those containing fig (usually comments by Saudis). Must be something there related to cultural experience and preferences.

    If I didn't date insane women, I wouldn't have nearly as much fun as I do. Good God, the memories . . . .

    But for what it's worth, the woman who hated Bois du Portugal was the most straightlaced of all of them: a 34 year old attorney with a decidedly conservative outlook.

    As an update, Musc Ravageur was despised by several women before I sold it. And after one woman told me she never wanted me to wear anything but Neroli Portofino, the next one told me that I smelled like flowery strawberries when I wore it and shouldn't wear it with her ever again.
    Current Top Five:

    1. Creed Green Irish Tweed
    2. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
    4. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
    5. Creed Original Vetiver

    Great stories, everybody, you're cracking me up.

    The only one I've had so far was New Haarlem, but that was as much due to my expectations. I'd just gotten it -- my first gourmand, not a style I usually like. But something just leapt out at me when I sampled it, and I loved it. Got home all excited, stuck out my arm, said to my wife, "What do you think of this?" And she said, "Ehh. Kind of powdery." And went back to what she was doing.

    Totally dismissive! Not interested, one way or the other! Could not have cared less! Man, that was a bummer.

    Oh well, I asked, right?

    Two dabs under each ear, shortly before entering a public bus.
    The lady beside me was squinching and squirting like crazy.

    I cannot remember anyone saying anything negative per se.

    while I may be high, unfortunately not even the smell of weed can get rid of the stench of Terre d' hermes..

    I can bet you that your Shamee (those that hail from Syria,Lebanon ,Palestine and Jordan) colleagues would love the fig.
    Figs are a staple there.

    Antaeus. Sadly, I have also had many complaints when I wear Lagerfeld and have to give it away.

    Joop Homme; a very divisive scent.

    La Nuit (and John Varvatos Vintage) gives me a massive headache that won't go away unless I sleep it off. I gave the bottle away to my brother, and while he likes it and wears it outside, he did admit to getting headaches "once or twice".

    The only negative comments I received was when I wore A*Men around two male friends and the tar was in full bloom. They looked thoroughly disgusted and asked me what the hell I was wearing. However, I went to a club later that very night and got lucky with a chick who couldn't stop raving about how "delicious" I smelled. Go figure.

    Another funny, but not necessarily negative comment I received was from my mother when I was trying out Guerlain Vetiver. She said I smelled like Hamam, a local brand of soap popular for its purported medicinal properties. She was genuinely surprised as to why I'd want to pay thousands of rupees to smell like something that could be bought for twenty.

    Must have been quite a wild bus ride. Are you sure it was the fragrance and not your Tom Ford-like appearance?
