Favorite = lemon thyme. It's so subtle and elegant...*sigh*
Least favorite = epazote. Evil stuff--charred rubber tires with an attitude. Yuk!

My mom loves coriander seed - she always puts it in her stews and hot pots. I just can't eat it. She takes this as a personal rejection!!!

That would be mint, though it's an herb. I hate all mints. I dislike them so much that I get nauseated after after consuming them. I was so happy when someone finally came out with a toothpaste that wasn't "minty fresh".

I'm not fond of licorice either, which makes anise a spice that I have to use very carefully. Use the right amount and it truly enhances oriental stir-fries. Use too much and it ruins them.

And for it's exhorbitant price, saffron tastes to me like tobaco smells. And because of my Dad's smoking habits when I was young (think two to three cigarretes smoked in a three mile distance, whle driving 25 miles per hour, with all windows rolled up in winter, and me pleading to roll down a window for fresh air, and you'll begin to understand) I'm not fond of that flavor/odor either.

After that, I adore most other food, spice, and herb flavors and aromas.

For me, it would have to be dill, cilantro and saffron.

I'll second the call on caraway. There are actually a lot that I don't like. My mother cooks with about as many spices as you'll find in a waffle recipe ;-) so I never got accustomed to them when I was growing up. Now I use a ton of spices but there are still a good handfull I just can't stand! Anise, nutmeg, allspice, licorice... for a few!
