DS&Durga Burning Barbershop. 🤮

Worst blind buy of my life. Truly awful scent that I need to get out of my collection. Smelling it honestly makes me want to puke.

My bottle was the clear juice and I have to say I wore it three times- the first and last time it was revolting and the second time I couldn’t detect the onion/BO aspect at all! VERY strange experience. When it was bad it was BAD. Not simply a cumin note- it was positively gag inducing.
I've tried to wear it three times as well and it's all B.O. and rottent onions on my skin.

Precious Oud by Mancera is awful to me. All the notes sounded great on paper....but that opening....:sick:

Other ones are some random super cheap clones I've owned in the past. The ones with the similar looking bottles but with a dodgy translated name. Would always give me a headache/feel ill.

Thankfully, I like 99% of fragrances I sniff out. (which is also bad for the wallet!)

I do really want to try Secretions Magnifiques though. Is it really as bad as I remember people saying years ago?
