    Weirdly enough probably the only majorly hyped fragrance that I DO get is Tobacco Vanille. Majorly hyped frags generally don't tend to get along, like the following that I definitely don't get:
    Musc Ravageur
    Portrait of a Lady
    Aventus (and, for that matter, I just don't get Creed...not to slam it, but I have yet to find one I like)
    LIDGE
    CDG Black (and I tend to really like most CDG's)
    LDDM
    Terre d Hermes
    and others.

    I don't know if Amouage Gold Man is very popular, but MAN do I not get that stuff...I just had the displeasure of smelling it recently and man is it rank. Whew it stunk, and I don't think "Stink" per say, that often.

    Tobacco Vanille. This is a personal bias against vanilla notes in fragrances. I frequently get an Eau de Exotic Dancer vibe from vanilla fragrances; combining that vibe with a tobacco note does not quash the association in the least.
    If I said you were bringing back memories of my mis-spent teenage years.... Well, there. I said it.

    Someone's perceptions are wrong
    Olfactory receptors are real gremlins - particularly with some of these hit-or-miss musks, woody ambers, and other synthetic aromachemicals. Throw in personal interpretation, and I've just given up figuring out who's not smelling what, unless there are at least 5 people to compare.

    Not sure I get them, either, but I don't let that get in the way. They've made me question my own nature - always a good thing.

    I know I'm supposed to move on, but I dont want to give up on Aventus. I feel like a detective, lmao.

    Anyway, I think I get whats so good about Aventus; its the sillage. Upclose it smells basic. But if the scent gently wafts, you're mystified and amazed.

    I started my collection 8 months ago. Got a sample of Aventus from Nordstroms and it smelled so bland. I recently decided to revisit it and got an official sample online. This sample had the smoky pineapple vibe I had heard about. I now see why people like this although it is not high on my wish list. I am not sure whether my nose changed or whether the samples were different.
    It has taught me to keep an open mind and as I learn more and smell more to go back and check my opinions!

    I find majority of hyped fragrances to be either boring copycats or stink. Also the oud trend is ridiculous to me since all the oud fragrances I've smell are 80% similar to each others

    If I have to name name then it would be Amouage Gold Man. Stinky dried saliva in a bottle, just can't get why people pay big money to smell like that

    As an aside, If you loved Briar Rose you may also want to try Tauer's Une Rose Vermeille if you haven't already. After blind buying Briar Rose and testing Une Rose Vermeille earlier-on I found those two quite similar smelling, but near completely different to Portrait of a Lady. My guess is the Tauer will appeal more to your tastes than PoaL did (though both Briar Rose and Une Rose Vermeille could have easily been on my own "don't get" list).

    Interesting point, I have to say though, I have learned a lot by hearing what other people think. I mean, I have learned to appreciate things that I otherwise would not have appreciated and it has enriched my experience of the world. This is not only in fragrance but in all the arts.

    What I like has in fact been influenced and shaped by what others around me have liked... and I think it is not just a question of not thinking independently, but of actually embracing what others have taught me, people who have a lot more experience and know a lot more than I do in certain fields. If I had just limited myself to "what I liked" and didn't listen to others, I would still be wearing exclusively Acqua di Gio

    [Not that AdG is a bad scent, but it was the only one I wore.]

    The sillage varies considerably, based on the individual. I bought a bottle of it and got very little sillage and projection (about 4 hours), so I sold it. The guy I sold it too, loves it and says he gets more than 12 hours out of it.

    I'm not knocking Aventus, because it is a nice scent, it's just not one that really worked for me. In addition, regardless of the hype, not once did sparks fly out of my ass from the elation of wearing it.

    Well, I found BR and POAL to be both berried roses with patch, I preferred BR. Nope, not a Tauer fan so far. I've tried URV, wanted to like it but didn't. Taueraide, I guess, isn't for me. Interesting about finding that one similar to the Briar. I didn't find them similar really, except for both having that berried rose note. Thanks for the rec though!.

    Have to agree with this. Half the time the "oud" stinks and is nothing like the real thing, yet every company seems to get on the oud boat. Thing is, with too many on a boat, you run the risk of sinking!

    Non-Orientals. I mean, Orientals are the best fragrances (Heritage, Egoiste, Jubilation XXV, etc.) so why do people bother with fougeres or chypres?




    Oh yeah, and I don't get the love for oud. It's different but to me it's just another note.

    Green Irish Tweed. I've sampled this a number of times, and I can't get around how baldly synthetic it is. It doesn't smell "rich" and "regal" and "natural" by any means. It even has a plastic sort of vibe to me.

    Aventus. Similarly synthetic, with doubtless some large-moleculed aromachemical which would explain its tenacity and its tendency to produce olfactory fatigue. That honkin' fruit note is to me the fragrance equivalent of Auto-Tuned pop music. Add in Creed's tacky classist marketing ("Smell like a successful douche bag!") and I see no appeal.

    Tobacco Vanille, for all the reasons mentioned on this thread.

    Some others:

    Penhaligon Blenheim Bouquet/Pen's English Fern/Trumpers Wild Fern: All kind of smell the same to me, generic fougere. May as well be in a yellow bottle with "FOUGERE" stamped on it in black stencil lettering.

    Al-Rehab: I've tried two of them and they both stink of synthetics. I've tried SMW and no, Silver does not smell like SMW.

    Platinum Egoiste. Allure. Antaeus. Sorry, Chanel fans. I love Egoiste and get Bleu as a nice safe scent, but the others just don't do it for me at all.

    The entire Creed Royal Exclusives line. Little complexity, each has one or two notes it does moderately well but certainly not special, little projection or longevity, overall light uninspired fragrances. I'm pretty certain they took some formulas they didn't feel they could market normally, then decided to sell EdT strength in bulk and call them "royal" at a huge mark-up in cheap plastic bottles. Then, lo-and-behold, people were buying them up. So what was going to be a limited run in the large bottles, Creed has seen fit to give us the gift of 1oz bottles as well. If they were sold as just run-of-the-mill perfume, they'd be great. At 225 an ounce or 675 for 8.4 ounces, it's a joke.

    Tobacco Vanille. The cigar tobacco opening is fantastic but after about 30-45 minutes the whole thing falls apart and starts to resemble a cheap, drug store vanilla candle on my skin.

    Not a bad scent, but I don't get the love for it. Nicely blended, but rather bland and heavy on the vanilla. Then again, I'm not really a vanilla fan.

    I couldn't agree more. I had the chance to sample a whole bunch of them. I even got a decant of Aventus and Imperial Milliseme.

    Quite ordinary, and some surprisingly synthetic, especially for the price.

    Hardly any sillage and short lived longevity.

    Why, oh why are people paying so much money for this stuff? I just don't get it. Some super clever marketing hype, or perhaps there's some special body chemistry tuning that is going on that makes some people feel so fantastic wearing this stuff, something that you and I (as well as a few others) apparently don't have.

    Carnal Flower and Ambre Sultan. After giving multiple tries I still cannot stand these two.

    Quite ordinary, and some surprisingly synthetic, especially for the price.

    Hardly any sillage and short lived longevity.

    I do suppose it's possible that you are missing something with these. I find the quality FAR superior to many, many fragrances out there. A lot of them smell absolutely glorious on me, and make me feel really good about wearing them. And, I pay zero attention to marketing so that's not a factor.

    Shower soap doesn't sound like superior quality, but then that's just Aventus you're referring to. I did find Irish Tweed to be one of those that isn't synthetic and has very good quality, just that it doesn't last very long and doesn't smell very unique to my nose.

    If it makes you feel like a million bucks, that is certainly worth paying for.

    Yes, I'm only referring to Aventus. I'll also say, I DO find that Aventus is blended well, and of very high quality...it's just that it's particular scent is similar to an uninteresting shower soap to ME.

    I don't get how people think that when they buy a bottle of fragrance it's supposed to change their life. It only changes the way you smell for a few hours

    I think Aventus is slightly overhyped as well but I want to know where you are shopping that sells soap with a smoky scent to it. Aventus would probably be near the bottle of my list of fragrances that remind me of any type of soap haha.
