Are there any scents that are generally well-liked that you dislike?

I'm not talking about things that you find are frequently too strong, though you're welcome to include those if you'd like. I'm talking scents that can make you grimace and turn up your nose at the faintest whiff. Personally, I find floral scents to be revolting. I especially don't like heavier flowers, like roses, or nighttime floral perfumes. I'm also not a big fan of coconut on its own - I don't mind the taste of coconut, but artificial coconut-scented things are just icky. I don't mind coconut when it's mixed with other things, like pineapple or banana, but on its own it's a deterrent.

I hope that I'm not duplicating someone else's thread, but after reading through 7 or 8 pages of threads on scents, I had had quite enough of seeing the same people ask over and over "what does this smell like?" If you know of a similar thread, please feel free to link me!

Cucumber.

I can't stand the smell of the real thing, and I've only found a single synthetic version I can stand (which is on baby wipes, mixed with something else)

Vanilla. Coconut. Patchouli. They all smell quite vile to me. I like heady scents like musk and jasmine.

A woman with just the right amount of a jasmine scent on her could make me do very very evil things.

Vanilla scent gives me headaches and makes me want to vomit. Super sweet smelling scents also bother me (usually fruity scents)

I don't mind vanilla as a scent, but I don't like the flavor vanilla, which is pretty unusual!
I'm not a huge fan of floral scents like roses, but I don't find them off-putting.

Warmer scents like vanilla, caramel, butterscotch, or those "fresh baked cookie" candles. Blegh.

There aren't many scents that I dislike, but I'm not a huge fan of either vanilla or chocolate (at least the fake kind you usually find in candles and body washes).

I find it crazy that there are so many things that are vanilla-scented, yet a TON of people dislike vanilla. Okay, okay, I'm drawing from a very small sample, but still. I love the smell of vanilla, but a lot of vanilla-scented candles and such are too much for me because they just put in SO much fragrance. It's very easily too sweet.

I think the only one that I do not like is musk. I actually enjoy patchouli.

I can't handle anything offensive, I have a hard time dealing with it. It will make me very sick and I hate that. I drive my family crazy too because I shower often.

Besides saying "I hate anything scented", stuff that smells too much like cherry or grape medicine. I was looking at some massage oil that smelled like grape medicine and said NOPE.

I'm not the biggest fan of fruity scents.

This is out of the ordinary, but I can't stand the smell of pizza. Maybe because I actually dislike pizza (I'm weird, I know), but this seems to shock everyone... Especially when they find out I'm Italian.

Floral. Flowers are pretty but they make my allergies nuts. I also hate cut grass, nothing upsets my allergies worse than that.

Love, love jasmine. It's just so romantic and sexy. I turn into a puddle when hubby splashes on a bit of Polo (original), the muskiness just melts my knees.

I dislike Chanel! Every Chanel scent, from classic No. 5, Coco and even the Bleu pour homme -- they all smell kind of musty, kind of 'old people-y'. Maybe it's because it's such a classic scent that it gets imitated everywhere (sometimes badly). But I adore Issey Miyake perfumes since it just smells like a refreshing take, like I've never smelt it before.

I hate the smell of Patchouli. I totally understand there. Initially, the scent isn't bad, but everyone I know that wears it seems to take a bath in the stuff.

Perfume-y floral scents give me a terrible headache. I love rose, but when it smells more natural and not when it's intensified into fake-perfume smell.

Probably my least favorite are lotions/candles that are food scents like cookies, or apple cider or something like that.
