What's The WORST Smelling Cologne, Perfume or After Shave?
I vote for English Leather... but I'm sure there are others that make you want to wretch. Which one do you vote for?

1. Axe. My teenager practically bathes in it
the girl, mind you, not the boy. You can taste it in your mouth when she is done 'spritzing'.

3. Look at the bright side
That stuff is like liquid birth control. If your teen daughter keeps on wearing it then she probably won't make you a grandma any time soon.

35. Oh, my nephew uses that crap. The stench is just awful. I can't
imagine why anyone would choose to smell like that.

4. Exactly what I was going to say :)
English Leather is it. English cow sweat is more like it.

17. hee hee can't resist
most cows don't sweat, though Brahmas do secrete an oily substace that repels insects.

6. Old Spice has got to be on the A-list of the worst-smelling
English Leather and Brut are pretty vile. When everyone seemed to be wearing Calvin Klein One ten years ago, it was bad from overuse.

10. Aramis.
My first husband bathed in that shit. I begged him to stop because I was allergic to it and it literally made me ill, but he wouldn't. I can smell it a mile away and still have the same reaction to it. *shudder*

14. the crap that Debbie Gibson sold at Walgreen's years ago
I remember the girl sitting behind me in school use to wear it and it would literally give me headaches. Electric youth? I think that was the name.

18. ALL of it
can handle some men's but really prefer not to. I have never smelled a female artificial scent (stench) that I cared for. Lavender oil is ok.

19. I feel the same way!
I use a dab here and there of essential/synthetic oil blends I make myself. Artificial scents smell way too artificial...I HATE that "perfumey" stink.

What's worse is when people feel the need to marinate in it before they leave the house. That's so much fun on the subway in August. :eyes:

27. heh that reminds me of a boring story
When I was in High school I would get a ride to school with the family that lived across the street - they had three teens, 2 girs and a boy. The boy had a groovy (yes it was the 70's) fringed leather jacket that some girl had DRENCHED with pachouli oil. I did a whole winter bathed and choking in that stuff. If I smell it I am right back in that old convertable impala that their mom drove choking on pachouli and my unrequited love for him. Him I got over, the smell not.

24. Old Spice makes me want to retch....
but that was because I had an alcoholic uncle who bathed in the stuff to cover the smell of BO, cigar smoke, and putrid whiskey breath.

25. Obsession.
A patient practically bathed in the stuff when she came to our doctor's office. We went running for the Ozium after she left.

Except I think it smells like a non-ventilated gym locker, on a hot, humid day.

33. That Michael Jordan stuff really stunk too.
For girls, I would go with "Malibu Musk". A girl friend of mine wore it in junior high. Icky.

36. Anything with a heavy gardenia note
I love REAL gardenia flowers and their scent, but perfume made out of it turns my stomach.
