Coffee, hate the taste and the smell!
Burnt popcorn

I also dislike a lot of things others mentioned here: fingernail polish remover, incense, Pine Sol and most perfumes, especially flowery ones!

For me, Pine Sol and Lysol DO not smell like they should...they smell like the worst smell in the world to me, because that was what was used to clean up after "a mess."

Another : Microwave Popcorn that stuff reeks.

Salted cod being cooked. Also certain brands of vermouth other than Martini and Rossi (which I like). A whiff of Nolly Pratt vermouth causes a gag effect with me.

the smell of death. i know it sounds dramatic, but i hate the smell of a decaying thing from as small as a mouse stuck in a glue trap, to a person who's been dead and forgotten too long. the stench stays in your nose long after you are breathing fresh air.

Odor molecules stick to the nasal passages and stay for awhile. That's why you see pics of coroners with a green gel smeared next to their nose. The scented gel odor molecules also stick to the nasal passages after the coroner is finished, overpowering the bad smelling molecules that hang around afterwards.

Greg I have never had the pleasure of smelling the rain in a desert, but I bet it would be wonderful

Some ppl don't like the ozone smell that their aircleaners produce. I don't mind it. It smells to me like rain and thunder.

That reminds me.... the smell of a cadaver lab. I had that smell stuck in my nose for days after each class, it was awful.

I have an intensified sense of smell--so I can smell things other people can't. I am quite odor sensitive. I used to work for a client and there was one gentleman that wore a certain type of cologne/aftershave. Even if I got in an empty elevator car, if it was the one in which he had taken to the 19th floor, I could taste the aftershave/cologne in the back of my throat. By the time I got to the 19th floor, I'd have a wicked headache. I soon learned to get off the elevator on the 2nd floor and try a different car. The soap aisle makes me sneeze. Lilacs make me sneeze, but I love them, so I put up with that, the same with peonies. Lilacs and peonies remind me of time spent with my maternal grandmother (before me nose developed). Maybe that is why I want to have them in the garden and in the house!
