    Default Fragrances you hate and or find repulsive?

    Its rare for me to hate a fragrance. I am a true gourmand lover and almost anything in the gourmand category will gain my love and respect. My least favorite are aquatics although I do like them, I find a lot of them smelling very similar and not as unique as other fall and winter scents. I found the original aramis offensive. Smelt it at macys with my friend. I sprayed it on my hand and I was like what the hell is this ? I made him spray it on his hand and smell it LOL. His response was woahh it smells like a public bathroom, I laughed. Cartier declaration reminds me of cigarette smoke infused clothing with too much spicyness. My father has been wearing royal Copenhagen ever since I can remember being alive and I never liked that smell too much. I guess you can say I like stuff that is more on the unisex and or feminine side, it just smells very pleasing. On a side note anybody think d&g the one sport smells like such a generic sporty aquatic?

    JPG Le Male. The combination of lavender and vanilla makes me sick, it smells like Plasticine. The same goes for The Dreamer and Caron PH, those two notes combine are a no go for me.

    There are a few that I truly dislike and many more that I don't care for. But there is only one scent that I truly despise and that's Angel Men by Mugler.

    This has to be the 10,943rd time this same exact question asked here.

    My most hated "Mens cologne" is Polo green, Cartier Pasha, Aramis, etc etc. Those "powerhouse" colognes of yesteryear make me want to run.

    I find Fahrenheit and Musc Ravageur repulsive and dislike A*Men, 1 Million, L'Eau D'Issey PH, and Joop Homme. "Hate" is inappropriately OTT - it's only fragrance .

    Not so keen on Kouros, Hammam Bouquet, the 1995 Hugo- still, no hate, just unable to like or wear these fragrances.

    L'eau d'Issey pour Homme, and the evil marzipan death cloud from Tauer Phi.

    Hypnotic Poison? Say it ain't so... it's one of my absolute all-time favorite feminines, designer or niche.

    But here's my picks for repulsive fragrances:

    -Emporio Armani Diamonds for Men (like a Dyson, it never stops sucking; plus it's cloying and tooth-rotting)
    -Gucci Guilty (all three versions)
    -Joop! Homme (but only on the wrong body chemistry - it's very pleasant on some)
    -Lolita Lempicka Au Masculin (love the women's, but the men's doesn't work on me)
    -Cool Water (I see zero similarities between this and GIT)
    -Polo Green (as they say in our industry, a good name can sell an inferior product)
    Top 5 for Fall:
    1) Straight to Heaven - By Kilian
    2) New York - Nicolai
    3) Terre d'Hermes
    4) Aventus - Creed
    5)
    Flower of Immortality - By Kilian

    • Basically those which smell like Aqua di Gio / Perry Ellis Red 360 degrees
    • Habit Rouge -types
    • Too fruity ones, again, Clinique Happy -type frags
    • Most fragrances dominated by vanilla notes
    • Caron Yatagan, Santos Cartier Concentrated (is it the celery smell in their top notes?)
    • A*men and similar, other overly sweet ones
    • YSL Pour Homme Concentrated
    • Calvin Klein Escape
    • Ungaro II

    I'm one of the few that really doesn't mind Sec Mag -- to me, it's just a milky floral with some weird metallics. It's not "nice," but it's far from repulsive.

    Le Male, virtually every Mugler scent (A*Men type stuff), TF's Black Orchid and TV, many from Bond#9 turn my stomach (sickly gourmands in general, it seems). And I've yet to find an aquatic that doesn't give me a screaming headache.

    Three for a*men. It's the worst I've tried. I'm pretty sure there's worse out there, just haven't smelled them yet
