for me...it's Garlic - rather the after affects that garlic has on a person.

I have spent last night heaving because my DH decided that for dinner he would get portugese chicken and a tub of garlic sauce.

I spent most of last night on the lounge as I cannot stomach the smell.  It makes me heave, and I feel physically ill.  Its not just on his breath, it's everywhere - the bedroom stinks and his clothes stink as it seeps through his pores - and of course - he can't smell a thing!!

I'll smell a dirty nappy anyday over garlic..yuck!!

So what's your least favourite smell?

I'm a nurse so we cop some pretty bad ones, but the worst is called melena, it's when there is blood in the stools due to GI bleeding.

Ooh garlic is up there!
My dog after tin food. Smells like something crawled up his a** and died which is then let out only to crawl back up and die again.
Truely vomit inducing

Parmesan cheese - it shares some kind of acid with vomit - so that explains it...

Besides obvious things like vomit and some pooey nappies, mine is Dettol. Makes me dry-retch.

For my husband, it's vinegar. Makes him want to vomit. He has to leave the room and/or house if I've used it for cleaning.

Malena, without a doubt, is the worst smell in the world.

New Orleans on a hot, damp Mardis Gras afternoon. It's a unique blend of stale beer, pee, vomit, garbage, and brackish water that seems to waft like clouds through the thick Louisiana air. Bleh!

Vomit. Particularly after someone has been drinking bourbon the night before.

Oh, and just bourbon. Yuck, I nearly heave just having to sit near someone drinking it.

I used to think I had a pretty strong stomach but lately I have had to leave the kitchen when my dp uses fish sauce or mushrooms in his cooking.

Apart from the obvious ones like poo, decomposing flesh etc....

Those plug in air fresheners.  When I was pregnant they made my terrible nausea a thousand times worse for some reason.  And even now, years later, I cannot bear them.

My husband's behind ranks pretty high up there too.

I'm with you OP, the garlic smell is disgusting.  Also not a fan of vinegar either, if someone's eating salt and vinegar chips I tell them to get away from me.

ETA the chilli mussels too, my DP also used to eat these, I'm pretty sure they're stored in vinegar.

Thought of another one.

The smell that wafted from my dogs butt when the vet squeezed his anal glands.

#22 Toodee

DH likes to eat chilli mussels and I hate the smell so I used to make him turn on the fans and open the windows to get rid of the smell. This worked fine until he got the bright idea one winter of just trying to cover the smell with Glen 20. It made it worse (to me). Now the smell of just Glen 20 makes me want to heave  sick.gif

DH is no longer allowed to eat mussels in the house at all.

When we were in America, I smelled skunk for the first time and it was pretty offensive.  Amazing too as the skunk was dead on the side of the road, and we were driving past.  I can't imagine how bad it would have been up close.

The other one for me is fish.  The fish markets are just horrendous.

LOL not the best thread to be reading while eating my breakfast biggrin.gif

Not a smell that I hate but one that my DD1 tells me she hates every morning..."I hate the smell of your stinky breakfast!!".

I have weetbix, milk (cows) and fruit.  I don't think it smells at all but she nearly vomits when she smells it.

Any bad floral air freshener.
Cooked mushrooms.
The bloody smell of raw steak.
