    Default Popular Perfumes That You Hate

    You know, the Chanel No.5 that actually smells great on someone else but like cat pee on you. My list is too long to bore you with because almost everything smells like Eau de Urine Feline on me, the latest disaster being a tester for Hermes Jardin Sur Le Toit. It's supposed to evoke a summer garden with roses, grass and fruits. On me it's like that revolting "Rose water" we used to make as kids by putting rose petals in a jar of water which then turns into green, stinking, rotten mush.

    My sister wears Diorissimo and it smells absolutely divine on her. On me, rancid polecat.

    The one I think of (that no one really wears anymore) is CK1 by Calvin Klein. It smelled like ammonia
    to me. Wretch city.

    Poison and Opium. I used to work with people who drenched themselves in this shit. You could smell them a mile away and for hours after they left the room. One of them had to be told to tone it down after she didn't get the hint from her gagging colleagues.

    Obsession is the one that immediately pops to mind. Instant migraine for me.

    Anything with vanilla and/or patchouli - which a lot of fragrances have, unfortunately - give me a wicked headache.

    The biggest turn off is when a guy wears too much cologne and overpowers the room. Or the hall, I got stuck in the hall with one yesterday. I was embarrassed for him because his cologne hit me like a punch in the face. I was just hoping he wasn't getting on the elevator.

    Anyone else remember in the late 80s - early 90s that cheap ass drugstore perfume called "Exclamation"?
    Nastiest stuff ever. I can't believe anyone would wear that shit. Just thinking about it makes me want to gag.
    I'm not a big fragrance person, so I don't really know what's out there, but I remember this one! Yuck!

    OMFFFG - I used to work with a homewrecker who wore the living shit out of Opium. You could smell her 3 offices away. She also had fake daggers for fingernails; we called her "Claws".

    Giorgio gives me such a migraine that I will start vomitting shortly after smelling it.

    My sister has that reaction to D&G Light Blue. She says she can smell it on her soft furnishings for days after someone wearing it has visited her house. I actually quite like the stuff so I have to remember not to wear it around her.

    I get annoyed I get "used to" the smell of my perfumes, so I can never smell them anymore. I borrowed my colleagues Coco Chanel the other day and because it was a new smell to me, I could smell it and I smelt fantastic. I'm sure as soon as I buy it, it'll be lost on me again

    Angel everything..hate the stuff.Some D&G too do not agree with me.I wore Opium and Poison,both in moderation and only in winter time.They did smell good on me.I was smoking like crazy then and i needed the stronger smell.But my trade mark perfume that i wear for years and it is me,is Poeme by Lancome.My favorite ever..For summer i usually wear mens cologne,the latest Gaultier,s Monsieur eau de matin,light and fresh and bitter.My girls love Gaultier and they collect his stuff so i steal some from them..

    i need clean, crisp "green" smells. nothing too musky or with any hint of sweetness, or so floral it's overpowering.

    yup. anything sweet makes me puke, whether it's fruity or vanilla smells. that belongs on food, not perfume. the only exception so far is hermès eau d'orange verte, but it's citrus so that's an exception to the no fruity scents rule i guess, at least sometimes.

    angel is the worst perfume on earth, i'm sure of it. as i've maintained for years, it smells like candied asshole. vile shit. should be banned.

    opium is pretty bad in general but it can smell nice on some people, including my grandmother who wore it for years. i hate classic 'poison' and most of the variations though 'pure poison' isn't bad but it's definitely a winter scent. 'shalimar' always gave me headaches too even though it's considered a classic.

    I love D&G Light Blue. It's light and crisp. I hate any perfume when people take a bath in it. I don't care how nice the fragrance smells. Overwhelming scents give me an instant headache.

    I have an old Hermes from years ago that I don't wear, but I keep just to smell every now and again. I forget the name, it's in a green tinted bottle.

    I have a few perfumes that I hate with a passion. One is Angel. I can't handle it. Another is Hanae Mori. Yuck, yuck, yuck. The last one is Clinique Aromatics Elixir. I lived in a building in Miami Beach that I would swear used that as air freshener. All the older gals loved it.
