    Joop Homme and Thallium. One spray of either and the chunks begin their journey....

    Once I wore Habit Rouge (I think it was the EdT) when I was on jury duty. The courtroom was small, hot and stuffy, and I felt like I was going to suffocate everyone, or at least myself. Nobody said anything, but maybe they were just being polite.

    I got a sample of Montale Black Aoud and, having no experience with this house, applied it as I would any EdT/EdP. I felt like I was suffocating all day. I have not worn any Montale since.
    Behemoth cut a slice of pineapple, salted it, peppered it, ate it, and then tossed off a second glass of alcohol so dashingly that everyone applauded.

    Opium Pour Homme, and the strange thing is, that I absolutely love spicy orientals. This one did not agree with me at all.

    Curve, it is the one cologne that makes me want to sneeze the minute I smell it. I walk away from people wearing it.

    Unfortunately, Abercrombie & Fitch Fierce. I actually like the way it smells, but it is SO strong, and on top of that those that do wear it tend to oversprray.

    Sung Homme. Overwhelms me.
    Lately, Azzaro ph seems like 1 spray is too many. The base is nice, but it takes a long time to get there.

    Montale Black Aoud.

    As the title of this thread reads ... overpowering and negatively overwhelming.

    Halston Z-14. First one I had a serious negative reaction to. Truly disgusting.

    All HORRIBLY overwhelming, and I don'y like any of the notes. In each case, I was thrown into bouts of utter embarrassment until I was able to get to a wash basin and scrub like a surgeon.

    Urgh. I just made the mistake to spray some Obsession for men on me at TK Maxx, just to see if I still dislike it as much. Washed my hand twice since and I still can smell it. At first it didn't seem so bad, almost pleasant, but soon it started to make me feel ill.

    Marc Jacobs for Men - makes my tongue sore and my throat constrict so won't use it any more. I have become sensitised to it though - thought it was OK at one time.

    I was recently assaulted by a guy wearing Davidoff "The Game" in a library.
    The guy was 15 feet away, but The Game still smacked me around the head.

    Previously I was assulted by a wearer of Bogart "Siver Scent".
    That guy was literally 30 feet away in a wedding reception and he was still overpowering my own fragrance!

    Bois du Portugal.

    And A*men, largely because my kids spilled a sample in the car.

    A few years ago I spilled a 5ml sample of Bois du Portugal in my car. Now, don't get me wrong, I love the stuff! But...geeze...I drove with 4 windows open for weeks and witnessed dogs, children and the blind run away in terror as I sillaged by.

    Eau Sauvage EDP (the green liquid with the black label bottle).
    Two spritzes from a Sephora bottle had me gassed out, like swimming through a haze of syrup.
    I was impressed with its power, but yeah, I don't want to smell like that.

    FYI - the name of this fragrance is actually "Eau Sauvage Parfum" - it is an eau de parfum.

    It's a totally different fragrance from the original Eau Sauvage.

    Hard to say what's the worst but basically all those fruity or aquatic ones like aqua di gio, then the overly sweet ones like a*men, Gaultier 2, fleur du male, then of the powerhouses i can't stand Caron Yatagan.

    Creed BdP and the most recent....Houbigant Fougere Royale. I smelled it on a dude in an elevator and thought it reeked. Didn't have a clue as to what it was until I tested it. Maybe my nose is immature...but its the worst thing I have ever encountered in an elevator. That's saying something.

    New Haarlem for me. I sprayed my hand to test it out. I did not like the burnt syrup smell. Even after washing my hands 5 times I could still smell traces of it!
