    For me, Kouros is the most vile. Not the “ worst” (24 Gold OUD wins that one, mainly because it trumps Kouros in beast mode projection and days of horrible, horrible longevity), but the most vile because it reminds me of urinal cakes. I refuse to try Secretions Magnifiques.

    None. Even the stinkiest among the thousand I’ve smelled has some redeeming quality about them. Perhaps I’m a ‘half empty’ kinda guy.

    Serge Noire. I put the sample in a ziploc bag and walked it outside directly to the bin. Pure BO.

    The Dreamer. On me it was like turpentine + nail polish remover. It's been 10+ years so maybe overdue to try again if I spot it in a frag counter, since I had high hopes for it.

    Also L'Autre. Smells like B.O.

    50ml D'Ambiguite by Marlou. Costus overload, the smell of dirty hair & unwashed clothing taken to the max. l too tried to be fair to it in my review, but it actually is repugnant.

    A certain unidentified scent by Etienne Aigner (managed to track down the house, but not the actual scent name) did test a few time during the mid 2000s in a German store-not even vile, as much as the most chemical and artificial fragrance ever smelled so far, with a strong ink (but nowhere near Encre Noire) and even solvent-like smell

    This and Leather Oud are the two things I've tried that I found the most difficult, but the Marlou beats it by a sizable gap. I should probably buy a bottle, lol.

    This stuff is DISGUSTING!! My nose was abused. How anyone would want to wear this is beyond me. I scrubbed it off so hard. Smells like burning plastic, pencil shavings, curry and vomit. Vile!!

    Egoiste Platinum and Wall Street. They both share something metallic that I absolutely cannot stand. Tried the former in a store before going home so thankfully could scrub it off soon. Wall Street I applied to my wrists before going to work, and had to ask a colleague for wet wipes to get it off as soap wouldn't budge it. Nasty stuff.

    Agree!

    I dislike metallic notes like these, too. Included in this list is Copper Skies by Kerosene and Nasomatto Silver Musk.

    Fragrance World is unfathomable --- I really like Serge Noire for instance

    Sauvage and Tuscan Leather both contain hostility to the wearer imo
