    Unfortunately, it's a fragrance that I really like - Kouros by YSL. It's the only fragrance I own that has received more than one negative response.

    What does she know, anyway?
    Yeah, my wife gets soooo pissed off when I wear Portrait of a Lady - she starts busting my balls on things I did literally a year beforehand. It's like it flips a switch in her brain. I only wear it when she is out of town.

    My girlfriend really disliked Antaeus (unfortunately), and also DHI - she thinks it's too feminine, actually I think so, too, and I ended up selling my bottle.

    A*Men tops the list due to its potency, with the comments mostly coming from family members.

    But one of my friends told me to never wear M7 again in front of him. I haven't, but he's also moving out of town next month.

    I deliberately overspray a LOT of my frags for added longevity (layering the same frag on top of itself prolongs longevity on my skin like crazy) 4-6 sprays Antaeus, 5-7 sprays DHI, 4-5 sprays Kouros, 4-5 sprays Le Male, 3-4 sprays Montale Dark Aoud, 4-5 sprays Tobacco Vanille - I have never in my life heard a negative comment, perhaps because all around me have fainted before they can speak

    A*Men with out question.... I literally have never met ONE person in real life that likes it. I think its disgusting as well though. To bad as bang for buck in terms of strength longetivety all that its the best ive ever smelled.

    Recently, Puredistance's M got me a couple of negative comments, which makes me really sad.

    I asked a close friend why and she said it was "too powdery and smells like something my dad would wear." I proceeded to ask whether the latter part was a good thing, but she said no.

    Amouage fate man, had 2 people tell me it smells sweaty (which I agree with) my GF doesn't like black afghano. One frag which now gives me a right headache is scent story platinum, can't wear it anymore!

    I've only had negative reactions every time I wear Aventus, but the most recent negative comment was this morning. I asked my wife if she liked my cologne. She took a sniff, and immediately said, "No! You smell like a pine tree." I was wearing Bois d'Orage/French Lover. She also once told me that Guerlian Vetiver smelled "like vomit." Then again, she was pregnant at the time, and everything she smelled made her ill.

    Not really any negative comments per se, though occasionally I get some remarks from friends and family when they think I overdo stuff. Like, yo that stuff is strong! Also my dad seemed to get annoyed once by versaces Eau fraiche...

    My brother looks under his shoe for dog dung every time I wear Casbah (Robert Piguet). Unfortunately I get where he's coming from...

    I wore Soivohle: Journeyman to work the other day and got told that I smelled like I'd been sitting in an Indian restaurant for months.

    Fahrenheit is the main culprit for me. I find people outside the fragrance community are more likely to dislike it.
