    Default Which scents gets you the most negative comments?

    I will start: La Nuit.
    Mostly because I am in Asia right now and a lot of people are allergic to fragrance, or so they say. So any heavy stuff will instantly make people cover their nose. And I just happened to be wearing La Nuit.

    Honestly can't remember the last negative comment I received. I guess I have been lucky.

    Another time I have been told about allergy was when I was wearing Allure Homme Sport.
    I usually just use 3 sprays too.
    Not a negative comment, but yesterday on the bus. A girl just touched her nose and moved far from me: 2 sprays of LIDG. All these happened in Asia.

    Not many so far, never from strangers.

    Girlfriend disliked Fahrenheit Absolute. An ex disliked Santos Concentree, but she enjoyed Angel and Allure Homme Sport, so...

    Perhaps people around me are too polite, only negative I can think of is being told to dial down the TV which was a fair call I oversprayed. Eitherway anything I dont get a compliment on I just take as a negative :S

    The worst comment I ever got was when I was wearing Mugler Cologne?

    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.

    Antaeus is the one that got me so many bad comments that I had to get rid of it in the end.

    My wife is the only one who's ever given me negative feedback, and that was on English Fern and Azzaro Pour Homme. She says they both smell like "old man".

    What does she know, anyway?

    My girlfriend thinks that Eau De Baux smells like 'old medicine'. She really doesn't like it.

    She also said that Moschino Forever smells a bit like 'a wet dog', which I actually agree with.

    Default Re: Which scents gets you the most negative comments?

    Anything too leathery and/or too powerhouse, for instance Fendi Uomo, Drakkar Noir or Antaeus

    We should sticky this like the most complimented thread. I'm certainly going to follow this thread. Good idea!

    You don't tug on Superman's cape
    You don't spit into the wind
    You don't pull the mask off that old Lone Ranger
    And you don't insult my fragrance.

    ^ I'd prefer to know, personally. Especially if it comes from more than one person.

    Can't remember any -- I don't think I would wear anything that would provoke such a comment, i.e. Joop or Burberry Sport

    None that I've known.

    Lol. I've been to Singapore almost a half dozen times...and I've always found it way too hot to wear fragrances; probably because I've always been for work (at Sembawang). The Amouage in the duty free gets me on the way home though....haha
