    Versace Bright Crystal. Scratchy transparent woods, synthetic musks, mediocrity personified. But I was in no position to tell the woman what I really thought of her fragrance: not something to wear anyone should wear to bed. Of course a to tell it in a more diplomatic way, the fragrance simply doesn't do such a beautiful woman justice.

    Dior Poison. I'm not a fan of tuberose.

    Body Shop Vanilla or Dewberry. Plus any number of other sickly gourmands.

    (I'm not a fan of J'Adore, either. Sorry.)

    Giorgio Beverly Hills for Women is pretty damn dismal IMO. Cheap, overwhelming tuberose and other white flowers that can clear tages never mind boardrooms. Very cack stuff.

    Better tuberose IF applied with caution would be Fracas.

    ANYTHING with civet. Bad enough in a man's fragrance. Don't want to smell skank on a woman. No wiggle room for that. IMO women should smell sweet and floral - very delicate & feminine. Don't want a woman smelling hard core, skanky, dude-like, etc.

    The one I can't deal with is Chloe. Develops into this high, dry, screeching synthetic thing which reminds me of the high woodsy notes of CdG Kyoto, but if you reflected them in a malevolent fun house mirror and cranked them up five notches. Awful stuff, and it's reasonably popular right now.

    I've had many a meal ruined by some woman wearing Poison in my vicinity.

    What's funny is that Poison is a no go for many folks (I can't recall its smell), yet I really enjoy Hypnotic Poison. Also have a soft spot for Shalimar. Oh, and Andy Warhol by Bond No 9 (which I believe is now discontinued).

    Well played to you, then, Claire. I wasn't expecting much when I heard about the release of Coco Noir, but once I smelled it I was really blown away. It's wonderful that there are still some interesting, exciting releases available outside the niche market.
    The bottle is fantastic, too.

    Poison By Dior. Somehow this was popular back in the day.
    Its the only perfume or cologne that forced me to find fresh air.

    Its a Brazilian scent called Egeo. Its like a strong joop or a polo HOT 100x concentrated.... Vanilla, vanilla and vanilla bomb with musk. Nauseating.

    I was in a Burger King a couple of months ago next to a woman who appeared to have taken a bath in TM Angel. Not nice. And I LOVE A*Men.

    Japanese Cherry Blossom by Bath and Body works. My mother used the lotion and I was so glad when she ran out. The scent is so strong, synthetic and dated. It's like hairspray or something that singes the nostrils.

    I really don't have a favorite, though my sis-in-law wears True Love, which very nice. It's not overly sweet with a nice woody base.

    My wife doesn't wear this but we go through around 15-20 of the foaming hand soaps a month of this stuff. I enjoy it from that standpoint but have never smelled it on someone lotion wise.

    It was a Versace. I don't know which one -- I asked her what she was wearing, and she just said it was Versace. Rank.

    We didn't last that long, so I never found out which one.

    The best perfume I've ever smelled on anyone was the Anais Anais my first significant girlfriend wore. That will always be the gold standard for how a woman should smell.
    Current Top Five:

    1. Creed Green Irish Tweed

    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
    4. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
    5. Creed Original Vetiver

    I wouldn't be able to recognize women's fragrances outside of these two:

    White Diamonds by Elizabeth Taylor - Not good, I hate smelling that on a woman
    Sensuous by Estee Lauder - Fantastic sandalwood, great for a mature woman
    Currently wearing: Epic Man by Amouage

    In all honesty: non really so far. More often, possibly plainer, more generic smelling ones, yes, but never encountered one, that- strictly subjectively and personally- smelled downright, radically, recognizably, revoltingly bad to me.

    It may sound unbelievable, far-fetched, unjustifiable, but this is strictly the way I see it now- though maybe I "simply have found, in this case, the wrong one yet" (meaning that particular unlikeable female fragrance)- thus a quite limited fragrance knowledge on my behalf.
    Or, it may be just one of the following factors, as well as combination of all: simply lucking out on being only faced with pleasant scents, favorable chemistry, climate conditions, other variable/environmental factors, positive associations/feedbacks/memories/feelings/thoughts etc.

    Not sure what it is, but some cheap smelling, nasty sweet mess that I often smell on women, smells like it was bought from the pound store...

    I tend to like muskier scents on women.
    I also love any Serge Lutens on a women. (and on myself )

    From memory, Prada Candy smells great on a woman.

    Eau Des Merveilles By Hermes I THINK.
    Probably any female Hermes tbh as well.

    There was some scent back in the early 90's (I'd say 91 or 92) that it seemed like every girl was wearing. It was just so awful, my memory has chosen to erase the name of it.

    Honestly cannot remember what it was.
