    I see that a lot of you hate Civet. I really need to sample something that has a prominent civet note so that I can see what the fuss is all about!

    My most hated (i hate very rarely anything) is that note, a spice that is present in top and maybe middle notes of

    • Santos Cartier Concentree (not in the original but in concentree)
    • Caron Yatagan

    I'm not sure but it can be basil. I just can't stand it at all!

    I like especially many citrus notes like bergamot,lemon verbena, lime. Carnation, peppers, artemisia, various woody notes.

    Well since we're going 'currently', I'll confess I'm on a bit of a hay binge at the moment.
    Full bottles of Chergui and Sova are on their way, and I really get some hay-like notes from Sana, too.

    Most hated stays fairly constant - sour yuzu.

    Mike: Sniff some Joy (Jean Patou). This has one of the strongest civet notes in any perfume.

    Most loved note for me is Tabacco, and most hated vetiver.

    Favorites: Vanilla, Leather, Lavender, Cocoa, Cedar, Vetiver, Pineapple, Black Currant, Sandalwood

    Least Favorites: Excessive Pepper! Excessive Civet! These are both killers to me. There is one other note that is repulsive but I've yet to figure out what it is. Some woman I work with wears this fragrance and I have to be at least 10 feet away from her desk so I can't smell her. Blech.

    Anyone know of a fragrance that has all my loved notes in it?
    Guerlain Homme L'Eau Boisee. I have it, and it's a perfect match to what you are looking for.

    Fav: Verbena (always)
    Least Fav: Marine Notes

    although Iris and Laundry detergent musks were neck and neck with Marine Notes for getting the thumbs down.

    Not Aventus, it was crystal meth or amyl nitrate, or maybe it was both.
    I should really stop doing them while typing.

    Least Favorite: Oud

    Dior Leather Oud and Tom Ford Oud Wood smells terrible. Oud fragrance smells like they were made for old woman.

    I challenge anyone to name a Oud fragrance I would like. I thought Bond's NY Oud was ok, but I haven't worn it yet.

    You should try some that are not so oud-heavy. Something like Bruckner Aoud 1 (I think it also goes by the name Osswald Aoud 1 now, but I haven't smelled the later to confirm), Heeley Agarwoud, Creed Royal Oud, or Kerosene R'Oud Elements. I think someone who doesn't traditionally like "oud" may still like these.
    Current Summer Favorites:

    1. Creed - Pure White Cologne
    2. Xerjoff - Nio
    3. Dior - Homme Cologne 2013
    4. The Different Company - De Bachmakov
    5. Armani - Code Sport Athlete
    6. Ermenegildo Zegna - Sicilian Mandarin
    7. Dior - Homme Sport 2008
    8. Tom Ford - Rive dAmbre
    9. Montale - Aoud Legacy
    10. Creed - Virgin Island Water

    I'm really hate "powdery" note, it assaults my olfactory and even cause a slight discomfort in my sinus. But some really nice scents have that note and it's sad because I cannot enjoy them fully.
