    I thought I hated it too, and then I tried Equipage Geranium.

    I strive never to rise before the crack of noon. As for Platinum Égoïste, it smells more like polished tin to me. Pass.

    I hear you.
    My relationship with cheese is complicated, too.
    I mean, I like brie and parmigiano and ricotta and variety of blue cheeses and sweet curd cheese, but that normal usual yellow fermented cheese they put on pizzas, burgers, sandwiches and everywhere? Bleh.
    I don't hate it though, I just don't like it.

    I hate rude people (not snarky people, I like those) and idiots who think they know better than anyone else.
    I also hate ticks and cockroaches and not getting enough sleep and being hungry. And dirty public toilet rooms. And bad smells. And illnesses. And not feeling well. And having to do things you don't want to do. And the feeling of regret. And not being brave enough. And people who bully others.

    As for frangrance notes/accords, I really hate the watermelon/melon/cucumber/watery notes. I guess it's calone that I hate.
    And the scent of yeast. The town I was born in had a yeast factory. I gagged every time I had to go near it - even by car.
    I'm not even talking about fecal notes, I have problems cleaning my cat's litter box.

    I also hate geranium, my granny used to grow them in pots and I hated the smell back then and still do.

    Now, I am fine with rose geranium which goes very rose on my skin.

    I will add vetiver which I call bog body as on me it goes very gaseous and also neroli which turns into an atom bomb on my skin seriously I could take down low flying aircraft.

    I hate SAs who warn me snarkily that the perfume I'm about to try on is a woman's fragrance.

    And I strongly dislike the type of person who complains (read: gets offended) about people getting offended too easily these days when anyone who isn't one of them dares speak up for their rights.

    And even worse, people who don't indicate when coming off a roundabout.

    And cheap vanilla. Of course.

    Cigarette smoke, exhaust emissions, people that let their cats sleep in their bed, perhaps even on their pillows.

    Oh, I'm sure she smells lovely anyway. Pillows can be a bit much though, like breathing dry cat hair all night, basically like a cat sleeping on your face. Too much for me.

    I've smelled geranium in some perfumes, where it is well-blended. I used to detest it. Now I appreciate it. Don't ask me which perfumes where it is actually good - I sample far too many perfumes to recall names.

    In the world of frags, I hate:
    Vanilla, sweet fragrances, aquatics, cumin, tonka, sellers who refer to a, say, 5-10 year old reformulated classic as 'vintage' 'rare' and 'HTF', gourmands, IFRA, the removal of Kouros' metal-shoulders+base, when stocking up becomes an excuse for hoarding.
    In general, I hate:
    The EU, politicians, ignorants, snobbery, greed etc...
    Non IFRA Compliant & proud of it!
