    Default Men, what's the worst FEMALE fragrance you have ever smelt?

    I'm curious about it, and please add the best too.

    Maybe YSL Paris probably comes top closely followed by Cherry Musk by Ramon Monegal and Angel.

    Favourites are Dior Dune and Miller Harris L'Air de Rein... and many others

    It's hard to know names since it would require asking a woman what she's wearing, which is almost guaranteed to label one a stalker. What's more awkward is asking the same question when you don't like what you're smelling

    To me, I'm repelled by heavy, overly serious scents on women. Floral and fruity are the way to go.

    Celeb frags with vanilla overdose.

    Chanel No.5 smells dated and unpleasant; probably the aldehydes.
    Of the more modern stuff, DKNY be delicious is one which doesn't appeal to me.

    I like the new Miss Dior, and vanilla is a note I like to smell on women.

    Worst: Womanity... Caviar?? hell no..

    Best, hard to say. One that pops to mind is L'eau d'Issey since I had to ask a woman I was sharing an elevator ride with what she was wearing.

    This strawberry stuff from the body shop that my sister used to wear. Imagine the smell of warm plastic and strawberries, makes me feel sick thinking about.

    My wife doesn't wear anything anymore so in completely out if the loop on what stinks. But I think there are many rose based scents women wear that are just plain horrible.

    The best, for me, is YSL Opium.

    Angel can be hit and miss: kind of nice if very subtle, ghastly in larger doses.

    I don't know if it is "the worst" but I definitely dislike the aforementioned Chanel No. 5 due to its aldehyde assault.

    3) Dia Man vintage edt (Amouage)
    4)

    I'm not sure about the worst, but Hypnotic Poison stops me in my tracks sometimes. That and By Kilian's Back to Black have an other worldly effect on me when smelt on the opposite sex.

    Not sure of the name, but the first thing which came to mind is something this attractive girl in high-school used to wear. Could only be described as something from a Chemist which had a strong resemblance to insect repellent.

    As much as I want to suggest Angel, as indeed it is pretty bad, I'm afraid another of Mugler's creations gets my nod as the worst female fragrance...

    ....Alien

    I don't know if it's because it's so often over-applied or what, but I think this juice just SUCKS.
    I would hate to be in an elevator with someone wearing that tacky garbage.

    I agree with Steeler Opera that Ld'I femme is a very nice fragrance, as is Tocca's Graciella, and Forever & Ever Dior. All are more than welcome on a woman nearby.
    My current favourite, though, is Coco Noir. A very surprising addition to womens fragrance, and I could smell it for hours.

    Thank you all guys!
    I agree with most of you and, timdoeswell, Coco Noir is my signature and favorite perfume.

    The problem is names... gandhajala has a valid point and I add the white flowers note that reminds me so much of bathroom spray.
    Namely, I strongly dislike Coco Mademoiselle.

    NO way, Alien is awesome. A very sexy fragrance IMO. I like Chanel Coco Noir, Chanel Chance and Burberry Summer.

    Agree with Chanel No. 5 being outdated. I can't stand smelling that, plus most people don't know how to wear it in moderation. Also, the nauseating overdose of any VICTORIA'S SECRET by every woman in their mid 20s here in America...it just kills me.
