I think mine would be Aramis. I understand why people like it...ironically, when I was younger I had a bottle because I thought that was what cologne was supposed to smell like. I smelled stuff like this in Church in gradeschool.
D&G The One
Prada Amber Intense
Versace The Dreamer
Not bad scents, but very cloying IMO.
24 Gold. Really good stuff though.
24 Gold is certainly an above average fragrance. Doesn't send me running away.
Dior Eau Sauvage (all of them)
Ralph Lauren (just everything)
Armani Pour Homme
Gucci (ALL but the beautiful GPH2)
Tom Ford (regular line, except for Noir)
There tons of other frags that i can't stand at the regular department store "cologne" counter, but these that i've listed do make me want to actually run away
There are a few, but one stands above them all...
+1 on Joop
A*Men - 1 spray makes breathing difficult, if u want to spray more, use the below
aventus, its nice but its too much on the nose
Paco Rabanne One Million!!!!!!!! I swear that the Danish population is out to get me, because I am going in and out of choking clouds of it, whenever I walk the streets, am in a store, bar, etc..... Perhaps many people are just mindless drones obeying the ads, spraying as much of the stuff as possible, hoping they will turn into gold... I will ninja my way to clean air, if possible, to avoid One Million!
One of the polos makes me sneeze. Just seeing any of the bottles and I go in another direction. Not sure which one it is anymore and to be honest, I don't want to know.
1. Amouage Epic man
2. Dior Leather Oud
3. Perris Monte Carlo Oud Imperial Black
4. Le Labo Patchouli 24
5. Amouage Opus VII
6. Byredo Bullion
7. Masque Milano Russian Tea
Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.
GIT. Hate the smell of cat pee.

Aramis! But I like it!

MY how could I forget One Man Show!
But scents that make me run for few minutes are not necessarily on my hate-it list...
All of my friends can't stand Issey Miyake ph on me. Fahrenheit unnerves me. Joop just bothers me. Kouros and I have a guarded relationship.
Le Male and other club scents can be handled in small doses, which of course never happens in the real 'pay attention to me' world. Pasha and some of the medicinal herbal scents from Slumberhouse are intolerable in warm weather, but I respect the effort.
Just Dior Fahrenheit.
Had a "what is this... I don't even" moment.
Planning on revisiting it though, now that I've leveled up a bit...
A*Men, Pi and One Million, not because they're bad frags per se, just that the guys who wear them apparently have no sense of smell.
Anything with too much Laundry Musk has me gasping. Culprits include:
The One for Men
Vera Wang for Men
Narciso Rodriguez for Men (seeing a pattern yet?)
Lacoste pour Homme
The new Givenchy Gentleman Only
There are many others, but these are the ones that stick in the memory right now.
Most Creeds, which to my nose have this kind of endemic sourness to them, Terre d'Hermes, which I find repulsive beyond comprehension, Bulgari Aqua Marine, Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille.
Zino. Not because I dont like it but I cant breath for the first 10 seconds after spraying it on because its so strong.
Want to trade - Chanel Platinum Egoiste for Dior Eau Sauvage...
L'eau d'Issey pour Homme
L'Homme (plus all of its flankers)

YSL La Nuit. Gives me a massive headache every time, regardless of who's wearing it.
JOOP! (Dear GOD I hate this)
Liz Claiborne Curve. Horrendous. God Awful. I hate it no matter who wears it. If I smell it, I know what it is, I ask them what they are wearing, and when they said Curve, I say "Oh, you smell good.". Sometimes it's better to lie... Sometimes it's for the best...
Narciso Rodriguez For Him EDT. WTF IS THIS??? WHY WOULD YOU MAKE SOMETHING LIKE THAT?!?!?!?! WORST EVER. But I love the Musc Collection EDP . I ended up giving this to a younger friend of mine who seemed to like it for some reason (odd kid, but very cool and nice). His mother told him that he could never wear it in her house again. Oops.
FORGOT A MAJOR ONE!!!! Versace The Dreamer. Horribly loud, obnoxious, too much tobacco. Much stronger than 1 million ever thought about being. Probably 3x as strong. It's unique, but that's not always a good thing.

Bring on the nausea...
Well, it's cheaper than therapy... edit: No it's not...
A*Men - the ultimate nightmare
A lot of Eternity or even overapplied A*men (which I enjoy) makes me want to shake the wearer by the shoulders, asking "Why?". More to do with the amount sprayed than anything else though.
Don't get in my car wearing Dolce Gabanna Light Blue pour Homme.....I will leave you on the side of the road:-)
Tommy freggin' Bahama Men.
Cartier de Lune
It is the individual fragrances and not the category (designer, niche, whatever) that matters.
