    I got told sweet scents are feminine. Luckily I was only trying out some scents at the time.
    All in all, we have similar tastes so nothing to 'hate' per se.
    Ladies are all so different! My wife loves sweet scents on me (they're my least favorites).

    Issey Miyake Pour Homme has been her one true "hate" I suppose.

    There are a lot that she's "meh" on, but it's only the above that she truly hates. There are a couple I won't even expose her to because I know she'd despise them (leather oud). Most of my full bottles she likes pretty well or is OK with at the very least.

    My wife likes all those except Bois du Portugal. It got the "old man" treatment. But when I wore it at 27, she loved it!

    Strangely, my lady LOVES T. Rex on me and Mousse Illuminee is her current fav. It just smells super fresh on my skin... the moss is very chill on me.

    My wife loves Mousse Illuminee and Baccarat 540 on me...as well as Sauvage. So powerhouses are not an issue, I suppose.

    Ha! Fortunately, the former. More along the lines of exclaiming, "Oh my god, that's horrible!" followed by details of why. This was not some barnyard oud or avant-garde industrial thing, either. So, you never know.

    Recently, my wife didn't like Ormonde Jayne Montabaco Intensivo on me. I wore it to bed and she woke up in the middle of the night and claimed she had nightmares from it. lol Had to sell it unfortunately because I did really like it.

    Most things with oakmoss or Oud. This time of year I'm wearing a lot of Yatagan and Lvnea's Ghost Pine, neither of which are appreciated by the wife.

    I am new to fragrances. When I began I put them on my body, although I wasn’t comfortable with that. My wife really objected. And I realized putting them on clothes was much safer so that’s what I do.

    She complains about every fragrance I wear pretty much but it does not interfere with intimacy, LOL, so it’s okay with me. I enjoy the fragrances and she doesn’t and it’s all fine.

    Even though I don't currently have a g/f, the last time I did have one was around 2006/2007. I wore Le Male and Boss Bottled on most of our dates, and she always loved it, then one day I wore Terre d'Hermes and oh boy. Oh man. Her exact comment was "what the hell are you wearing?" lol, I will never forget. Since that day, I never wore it on a date again.

    Ironically I wore it again once when I was just out shopping, I was at a Dollar Tree and as soon as I walked it, I grabbed a basket, walked down an aisle, and as I passed by the registers, I heard a cashier say "that man stank". Maybe I put on too much? Hmm.. TdH, in my world, seems to rub people the wrong way often. I've also had many other bad reactions and negative feedback with it. I think the EDP is much more tame, which is on my wishlist.

    TdH can register as sour and/or sweaty for some noses.

    My wife despises Bois du Portugal, but she also dislikes BR540, Silver Mountain Water, L'Air du Desert Marocain, and Lonestar Memories. That's fine for BR540, I wouldnt wear that stuff very often anyhow, ditto for Silver Mountain Water, but Lonestar Memories.... too bad on that one I love that stuff and wear it a LOT

    My gf hasn't had too many I hate that reactions but she just had one with brindaban. She didn't have any love for Mousse Illuminee either, not that she hated it but just found it too green. She was hoping there'd be some sweet like in chypre palatin coming thru at some point but just the green lost her.

    Strange. I always thought it was a people pleaser.

    It's kind of uncanny, but yes...she seems to be able to tell. When I wear an EDP, she complains. When I wear an EDC, she doesn't seem to mind it as much. But, I still wear a lot of EDP, EDT, and EDC. I wear what I like for the day and just deal with her displeasure at my selections when it's the more concentrated stuff...
