Following on from JM's post re smoking, my least favourite odour my miiilleess is the chemical smell in deodorants and anti-antiperspirants. It really is one of the most disgusting things in the known universe. And apart from it being totally vomit inducing horrendous vile torture, whenever I come across it, it seems to cling to the inside of my nose and stay there for a week 24/7, so that my stomach can never recover. At least with natural bad smells you can move aside or it goes away fairly quickly. I'm not a fan of air fresheners either but they aren't half as bad.
In fairness to me I manage to avoid it pretty well. It's mostly when sprayed or if you're smelling clothes that it's at its worst. Or sometimes you get people who use way too much, so I try to avoid them and I don't let anyone spray the poison hell anywhere near my presence. But like Jo, I think a bad scent is worth drastic measures, but in this case, I would rather be coughing in a haze of cancerous tobacco for the rest of my life than suffer 2 minutes of that unnatural foul chemical.
