Dislikes: Excessive Vetiver, Cumin
If the OP has no issue with the way people are interacting on his thread, then I really struggle to see why you have. Lighten up, fella.
Smelling good on a budget!

For me a work of fiction exists only insofar as it affords me what I shall bluntly call aesthetic bliss, that is a sense of being somehow, somewhere, connected with other states of being where art (curiosity, tenderness, kindness, ecstasy) is the norm. - Vladimir Nabokov
Since smelling Wall Street, I've been put off all Marine notes for the time being, that dry down is not nice at all.
I've also just noticed that each fragrance I've worn over the past 4 days has coriander notes.
Love - Coriander
Hate - Marine notes.

Tbh I'm having a difficult time choosing either way. There's no one note that sticks out as my most, or least favorite. I don't like the civet in the current Kouros, but love it in Dior's Leather Oud. I thought I didn't like tuberose after smelling Carnal Flower, but then fell in love with Tubereuse Criminelle. Thought I didn't like cumin because of Puredistance M/Opus IV, but then realized that Rose 31 is loaded with it. I feel like any note can smell good when used correctly.
Love: oud, Vetiver, leather
Oh the bickering...must be Basenotes...
Yuck: That weird plum chemical Bond no 9 dumps in every freaking fragrance...
loves: immortelle, cinnamon, sandalwood, saffron, coconut (fig), ginger
dislikes: amber, incense (frankincense), cumin
Sans parfum, la peau est muette.
Least - Vanilla / Benzoin - mainly because I'm allergic to it.
Most - Frankincense (fresh, not burnt) - love the green herbal bitterness!
Okay, I'll through in my two cents(sorry, notes)

I wonder if he's playing Thin Lizzard?
Love: vetiver, citrus (lime, orange), smoke
Hate: cumin, powder, marine
Anyone know of a fragrance that has all my loved notes in it?
Despise: Banana - can't scrub it off fast enough.
I specifically asked for your most favorite and least favorite. If that's an hard question to answer, then don't answer it! I don't have an issue with people writing down more than one note that they love, but I'm not interested to know all of the notes you love, I just wanted people to write down the note they loved the most, and they're least favorite. It's as simple as that. But you do what ever you want to do. I'm thankful anyway for all of you that answered to this thread, it's great so see what notes y'all like!
Most Hated: Civet
Least: salty Notes.
Love: Incense, birch tar, castoreum, civet, hyacinth, vetiver, sandalwood, ambroxan, ambergris, saffron, musks, oakmoss, several woods, tuberose (certain types), tobacco, cardamom, clove, cinnamon, jasmine, herbal notes....
Hate: Rose, gardenia, several fruity notes (e.g. strawberries, raspberries, melon), norlimbanol, coconut.

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.
"Le parfum est la musique du corps"
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.
i think this should stand under each profile so when we read perfume review , we can check up personal taste and how biased someone is would help me at least
adore: oud, mysore, jasmine, iris
love: fruity, tuberose, rose, yilang-yilang, vetiver, bergamot, incense, carnation, only real animalics:civet, ambergriss, vanilla, almond, real oak moss, lycorice,
hate: synthetic spices, too much of pepper, synthetic animalics and moss!, many musks, aldehydes!! cinamonn, clove, benzoin, many ambers, lily of the valey
patchouli and tobacco.....can be so so depends on the blend sometimes i loooove them, sometimes cant stand
Great input guys! Let's keep this thread alive
Love: Labdanum, Iris, Heliotrope, Incense, Musk
Hate: Melon, Cucumber, Strawberry, Raspberry
Dislike but appreciate: Vetiver
Least Favorite: Anise
disliking most Vetiver except Mona Di Oirio's Vetyver...Yummm
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.
Current obsession...Invasion Barbare
At the moment,
Is the juice worth the squeeze?
Love: lavender, lime, vetiver, juniper
Hate: calone, "woody amber" aromachemical, laundry musks
I've found a new love these past few weeks - rose!
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.
Favorite: almost everything. I've given up loving stuff out of context.
Least favorite: formerly a few synthetic wood notes, mostly icy cedars, joined recently by tahini sandalwoods.
Hated: White floral accords
Love: frankincense followed by: vetiver, leather, wormwood, lavender, nutmeg, tea, cardamom, jasmine, saffron, cedar, juniper
Hate: musks in general... white musk, castoreum, civet, hyrax
Current most loved: Birch
Current most hated: Overly sweet vanilla

9. Creed - Royal English Leather

Love: leather, oakmoss, vanilla (when done right), patchouli (ditto), birch, oud
Hate: animalic musks and other animalic notes, that syrupy synthetic musk found in everything from Chrome to Wall Street, strong white florals

4) Encre Noire - Lalique
5) M7 (vintage or Oud Absolu) - YSL
My mission statement: "I am not afraid to keep on living - I am not afraid to walk this world alone."
I just don't feel like stating just one thing. many luvs and hates.
Love: sandal, vetiver, patchouli
Hate: vanilla, chocolate, iris
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.
