    The worst smell in the world is when a bad smell (poop, b.o, bad breath, fart) is trying to be masked with a chemical fragrance that they've brainwashed people into thinking is a nice smell. B.O mixed with cologne...puke!! If you don't have fresh pits just give me the unadulterated smelly armpit stank without the toxic Dow chemical enhancement that's causing cellular destruction with every inhale. Please!

    It's something I haven't understood for many years how humans have become seduced into believing these toxic chemical odours are pleasing scents. They just smell like toxic chemicals to my nose. Once you've passed the age of 17 and have the clarity of mind to see that it wasn't really a poosy attractant you were applying then you should leave it alone and just smell like a clean, bathed adult human from then on.

    And people are VERY touchy about this subject. They are very attached to these stinky chemicals....they have become part of their identity it would seem. That's MY smell!! And of course a typical response is for someone to assert, "I only put on just the tiniest little bit of...." NO. NO YOU DON'T!! I can smell you across the room. Only you think it's a small amount! The rest of us are having trouble breathing!

    It's a lovely spring day today here, finally, and I'm working outside washing windows and doors.....enjoying the sun and warmth of a perfect spring day. And the door of my neighbour's house opens and now all I can smell is men's cologne....from that far away. But if I enquired of the young man who's wearing it (and is fortunately only staying a short while) he would undoubtedly plead that "I'm only wearing the tiniest little bit of....blah, blah, blah" His dog smells of the same cologne.

    My beautiful spring day now smells like I live next door to a chemical factory....so I've come inside for some respite.

    So, a question for these challenging times we live in. In your opinion, is having someone else's chemical masking agent assaulting your olfactory senses formally any different than having someone's loud music assaulting your auditory senses? I'm guessing you already know how I'd answer this. :D

    It's acceptable to go next door and politely ask someone to please turn down their music a bit....so can I go next door and ask this dude to turn down the stink a little bit?

    Oh, and get off my lawn! (I throw that in there so y'all don't think I'm being completely serious about my rant....but I am actually very serious.....I hate the chemical stank!)

    My uncle was over one time. I had some of that orange oil spray in the head. He emerged after an ugly-sounding ten minutes but had used the spray. I had to pee like a mf so I asked him how it was in there. He said it smelled like a bear took a dump in an orange grove. He was right.

    Some of those citrus oil sprays I can tolerate....they don't have that harsh chemical smell.

    I'm in double jeopardy here. I've never had a keen sense of smell, and I'm losing my hearing. If I live long enough I'll have an insane tolerance level to both. I'll probably just hang out in seedy bars all day and flop houses all night and think I'm getting a bargain.

    I cannot tolerate the smell of men's cologne.
    Nor can I stand the smell of women's perfume.

    It's all too strong and vulgar for my senses, and if I board an elevator and somebody is wearing such a thing, I get off and wait for the next car.

    Can't stand it.
    Blech.

    :(

    A high school classmate, Phil P. was was stoner of the highest (pun intended) order.
    After smoke breaks, he’d douse himself in English Leather after shave.
    Phew!
    Stankin’!

    I've been dealing with this lately as my 22 yr niece is living with us and she loves to load on the perfume when she goes out. not just perfume, every product she owns seems to assault my nose in some way. makes me want to leave my own home.

    I used to teach English for a paper company that was trying to branch out into things like chemical deodorizer for cars, public restrooms, etc. one day an R&D guy came to my office to get a “foreigner’s” opinion about which of several synthetic deodorizer scents was the most pleasant, and I had to tell him, “sorry, all of that stuff smells nauseating.” He was a bit flummoxed...

    As much as I hate the smell of stinky chemicals, I think the smell of the first subway train on a Sunday morning might be worse.

    My wife and daughters are big on scented candles. I am not. Conveniently, it's a good enough reason to head into another room and play guitar.

    When I saw the thread title, I was certain you had found my sneakers. I'll keep looking for them.

    Even some dish soap has perfume added. Wtf, I do not want clean dishes that smell like a summer's eve.
