    Today someone at work made some popcorn, and as soon as i smelled i frowned. I work with compressed air, so for about 5 minutes im just blowing air away from me.

    I also hate the smell of vanilla.

    What are some smells you cant stand

    Most colognes and perfumes, they're too strong and some people use way too much. They give me a headache.

    I can't stand the smell of pot, which is probably why I never got into it. In Vancouver, it seems to be everywhere.

    I presume it was microwave popcorn in a bag? I don't like the smell of that stuff, either. Classic popcorn is OK to me, but those bags contain a special oil mixture that heats quickly from the microwaves, as compared to regular vegetable cooking oil you use in an old-fashioned popper, with peanut or coconut oil being common. There are also hot air poppers that use no oil, and have the least smell of all.

    And some of those bag oils contain optional "buttery" flavoring, that reeks even more to me. There's also been some controversy over health issues with those oils, so I just avoid the stuff.

    If we're talking only about food, certain heavy, greasy frying smells actually turn my stomach. As can almost any smell if it happened to coincide with my having a nauseating sickness, like the flu. I'll then have flashbacks of nausea around that food in the future, an effect that's sometimes persisted for years afterwards. Fortunately it's been so long since I last had the flu that I've got no foods like that at present.

    A knockout young lad decided he wanted to get rich quick. So he proceeded to find himself a rich 73 year old man, planning to screw him to death. They had a few dates and really did hit it off in spite of the half- century age difference. On the first night in bed he got undressed, and waited for him to come out of the bathroom to come to bed. When he emerged, however, he had nothing on except a rubber to cover his 12 inch erection, and he was carrying ear plugs and a pair of nose plugs. Fearing his plan had gone amiss, he asked, "What are those for?" The old man replied, "There are just two things I can't stand: the sound of a young man screaming... and the smell of burning rubber!"

    Stale cigarette smoke. Most perfumes and colognes. Perfumed soaps, they just cling to ones hands for hours and makes one gag.

    Smells I do like:

    Lemon
    Cinnamon
    Freshly ground coffee
    Gasoline

    YES (or I mean NO) to cat piss. How could I forget that one? I also hate it when people try to use potpourri to hide that smell. They don't seem to realize that they are only compounding the problem.

    I love that smell. My snout can sniff that out a mile away.

    It's weird because I like the smell of cigars, but pot fumes somehow have this fecal quality to it that turns me off.

    I worked through almost every lunch for over twenty years and I noticed that whenever I ate grilled salmon or canned tuna during a group project in a conference room the women would complain so much about the smell you'd think they took it as some kind of personal attack or sexist remark!

    That's funny about the popcorn, because I am the same way and think that it depends on the situation I'm in. Usually I love the smell of popcorn, but when I smell it at work it totally grosses me out for some reason! Weird... Have you ever smelled shrimp paste? That shit smells vile! Strong too. How it makes dishes it's in taste good, I'll never understand.
