The Razzie Awards thread on soaps and creams that was recently resurrected made me think a bit about odd smelling aftershaves and colognes. What is the strangest scent you have experienced with an aftershave?

My vote goes to Taylor 74 Original which smells a bit like a grandmothers purse and Taylor Mr. Sydney which reminds me of Nyquil.

Brooklyn Grooming Aftershave.

Smells like dirty bar rag. I didn't walk to the trash can. I ran.

Not exactly odd but ,

Pashana smells like a punch in the face. Way too strong.

Alt-Innsbruck is smokier than i would prefer.

I forgot all about Pashana. I used to carry it when I was first starting out and I agree with you wholeheartedly. I once received a case of broken bottles and the Pashana ended up saturating the carpet (this is when I was still running BullGoose out of the house). I still cringe when I think about it.

Pashana smells like an orthodox church. Incense at its worst.


I'd also add the Extro Sandalo and the Extro Due Mari. The first has a really strange and intense sandalwood scent. I used it today by the way. It starts as a plesant scent but it ends up being too strange. The latter has an extremely sweet bergamot scent that I really disliked. I gave it almost immediately to a friend. I hope he likes it more than I did.

While I really enjoy Myrsol and own their entire line, Myrsol 1919 Don Miguel just rubs we the wrong way.
I'm VERY open to scents, but Myrsol 1919 still smells like dusty old rotten flower water to my nose.
I now use my 235 ml EDC 1919 as Toilet 'fresher', but not sure it actually even works at that

Still use the 1919 after shave, because I want to understand it, but by far the worst AS scent among my after shaves for sure.

B&M Roam.  Smells like garbage on an open fire.
B&M Night Music.  I don't know, but I think something crawled under the house and died.

Ah yes, the Myrsols. Some a fine example of how to turn your cough syrup into an aftershave, others liquefied plastic.

I agree, but I haven't yet come across one that matches Pinaud Lilac Vegetal. In the bottle it smells like a mixture of Jay's Fluid and a urinal cake, but it does change when I get it on my face, which is rarely.

I know I'll be the odd ball on this one but I have 2.

1. Pitralon swiss - Just something about it hits me wrong and I can't get used to it. I do enjoy the Classic & Polar. 

2. Myrsol Balsamica -  My wife tells me I'm just a piece of meat for her to enjoy but I didn't enjoy smelling like a packet of seasoning.

One of my buddies described "Chiseled Face Midnight Stag" as smelling like a house fire. I had to agree with him after smelling it.

A guy I worked with was wearing it and it smelled nice. Couldn't wait to get some myself.  

Ordered some on line and as soon as I opened the bottle it didn't smell remotely close to what I was expecting.  Put it on and I smelled like an old lady. Maybe this stuff was good in the 50s & 60s. But it smells seriously dated.

Its now a frag I wear when I'm feeling anti social. LOL.
