    I had a similar experience with TdH. But I think my most dramatic turnaround was with Issey Miyake L'Eau d'Issey. I thought it was so great at first. Now there aren't many fragrances I like less than LEdI.

    It wasn't love but I thought I liked He Wood, Lolita Lempicka (for her), Fuel For Life, 24 Gold, Devin, some of the newer Bogarts, Everlast Original, Lanvin Sport, Chevignon...

    I sampled this one along with Tobacco Vanille
    Both smell like dog shit on a hot summer day.

    Never happened to me.

    Also in response to TdH, this is a weird fragrance sometimes I like it very much, other times I don't, but the more I wear it the more I am attracted to it is growing on me more and more.

    I'm beginning to think the same for Terre d' Hermes as well, but only the EdT. Still like the Parfum very much.

    Not sure if this is down to the alleged reformulation though...

    I had a similar reaction to Eau Extreme, and 1 Million.

    Not on second per say.. but I go back and forth on whether or not I like pure malt or not. I also am getting tired of la nuit, and new harlem as well and dont like them as much when I first got them.

    Bond Little Italy. Heavy orange opening, godawful synth musk base.

    I loved TDC - Oud Shamash at first. While I don't "hate" it, I suddenly only find it OK (my SotD in fact).


    Funny so many people are saying TdH. I have a bottle (Parfum) and LOVED it for a while. The last few times I wore it I thought it was "off". It's not very old, but I thought something happened. So, I smelled by Montale Red Vetiver, and had the same "meh" feeling. Maybe my nose built up a tolerance or resistence to something in it that makes it smell different after a while? I hope it goes back to normal, because I really liked that one - and I have almost a full bottle!

    I love A*Men, but sometimes, it doesn't love me back.

    On occasions, I don't get the sweet but dark chocolate that I really like.

    Loved Creed Royal Oud first sniff but kind of indifferent now after getting a sample. Won't be buying, thought it would be my first Creed purchase. Oh well.

    My impression is that the most rewarding and worthwhile fragrances usually operate in the opposite order.

    Chanel Edition Blanche. Love the top notes, despise the mid and base notes. It becomes a nasty ginger bomb on my skin a literally makes me queasy. Same story with Gucci Envy.

    Indeed. That has been my experience, too. Many of my current favorites weren't appealing to me at first.
