Licorice (anise) , chocolate and rubber notes are disgusting to me.
Fecals ( as in MKK by Lutens)
Claus The Danish Viking
Incense just doesn't make much sense to me in a frag.
The musk frags I have experience with just seem too "women's perfumey."
Heavy vanilla, as in Givenchy Pi, is not for me either. I could just dab on some vanilla extract if I wanted that effect.
And anything urinal or fecal is too absurd to even think about.

Lolita Lempicka au Masculin (older version)

In any quantity: clove and melon.
In really loud amounts: cedar (à la Christian LaCroix Tumulte) and pine.
For me it is immortal and the rubber note in Bulgari Black (i hope i don't get too much hate)
Vanilla , in anything I wear. I dont want to smell like a milkshake plain and simple.
On the fairer sex, its quite nice.
coconut, melon, apple, peach & other fruity notes
bad quality synthetic citrics
A lot of people may want to jump in & say its the ISO E Super & vetiver. No ISO E Super smells different or actually amplifies the scent differently. Theres definitely some other aromachemical in EN and a few other perfumes that do this too.
Almost everything is synthetic now.
The cutting line being quality of synthetic material used.
For me, lily of the valley is problematic if it's a main note (hey, maybe because it's a synthetic material ), I get that raspy feeling in the back of my throat of it. Strongly aldehydic fragrances are a no-no, and I am wary of cumin and coriander, they can work on me but most of the time they go too pungent.

I see so many people say they hate anything "synthetic" I agree with the others who respond to that statement by saying virtually all frags currently on the market are synthetic, and the houses who boast that they have all natural ingredients are either stretching the truth, or have horrible projection/longevity/sillage. I disdain anything with a peach smell.
Too much civet makes any fragrance smell like a public toilet.
I hate too much cinnamon really gets on my nerves
