They are putting on a new roof at work and here comes the tar! I hate the smell of tar, I would rather a fart. Tar is the worst smell in my books, how about you?

I agree tar is really bad. I work in retail so im gonna have to say that about a pound of A-1 steak sauce. If you get a lot of this stuff open (broken cases) Its really strong and nasty smelling. Weird i know.

Tar is one of them but fresh cut grass about kills me. I would rather a fart myself . LOL Now- that is out in the air. Around people- body odor ( B.O).... Oh lord.. That will make me run to the bathroom and pray to the porcelion god right there. Tar gives me a headache, grass makes me sick to my stomach.

People think I'm weird because a lot of smells bother me. I'll give you my top 3 hated smells... I hate hate HATE the smell of Vanilla. It makes me sick to my stomache and gives me headaches. Vanilla scented candles, perfume, incense, vanilla extract. You name it, if it smells like Vanilla I hate it. Pickles are another smell that absolutely makes me sick to my stomache if I'm around them I HATE pickles. I love cucumbers, but the simple smell of pickles makes me want to hurl. The last of my top 3 most hated smells is without a doubt Baby Powder. I can not walk down the baby aisle in any store if it smells like baby powder. I can't wear Baby powder scented deodorant AND I can't even be around someone who is wearing baby powder scented deodorant. It, like vanilla, gives me headaches and makes me sick to my stomache. I buy a lot of unscented things, but there are a lot of smells I do like, I'm just super picky about everything.

I have never known anyone to hate the smell of vanilla, pickles or baby powder. I love the smell of vanilla it is one of the top scents in my world. It sure is interesting how smells are for different people.

Yeah... a lot of people think I'm so weird because of the smells I hate. My mom loved vanilla but she's never allowed to wear anything vanilla scented or burn vanilla stuff if I'm around.

Hi dear friend, I hate the smell of rotted egg too much. But i like the smell of one thing, but i am sure that all of you don't like it. Its nothing but the smoke of burned fuel coming out from automobiles. Did you think that i am mad. I don't know why i like it. But.......... I know it contains Carbon monoxide and which make too harm to health. Since of all i like it. Don't think that i am mad or a different person. I am also simple person just like you all. By the by, the smell of tar. I also not like it but not hate also. But i not like to paste it on my body. That i hate too. And very care full on it not to step on it. Thank you dear for giving me a chance to respond on your discussion. See you .........

I have never heard of anyone that likes the smell of exhaust from a car. That is a little different, we were behind a car the other day belching out blue smoke and it almost made me sick.

Some perfumes really are putrid and people tend to bathe in it then enter an elevator with me!

Oh god.. I wouldn't be able to last that long without going mental or fainting. closest I've been was a time my wife and I had to change our soon in a shopping centre's baby changing room and we found to young girls using it as make up room. God that was worse than being near a foggy fire! ~Joey Kudos!

Tar is bad...that's for sure...diesel makes me want to want to wretch...gag...and continuing you are correct that a fart would smell better. Also sickeningly sweet thick dense perfume can give me a major stomach sickness and headache....hate 'em...

Diesel is disgusting too, nothing worse than getting stuck behind a car belching diesel exhaust in a traffic jam!
15 Jun 07
Diesel fuel makes me think of this really old nasty hag who was always hateful to others. She even made fun of other's kids! She stunk really bad, not just her body but her lousy personality as well. I reckon diesel fuel reminds me of her since they both make my noise run, LOL.

I have a really sensitive nose and there are many smells that I really dislike, but one of the ones that springs to mind is people that don't wash, that sort of dry swet smell. I hate it, I don't care how much money people have, there is no excuse for not washing, especially so in a westernised democracy like I live in. It's awful getting into a lift and having to hold your breath until the door opens again because the person in there with you has no personal hygiene.

Now I love that smell. Isn't that funny? Just depends on how old it is. Several days can make my eyes water... National Geographic had a smell test-the first ever done on smells. Interesting read in the year after. The cover shows a clinical type person smelling a guy's armpit. It was bizarre, but they sure did learn a lot. My family was involved in the test...and it was fun sniffing the scratch and sniffs. We were all recorded on what were pleasant smells to each individual. It was fun.

I'm not a fan of B.O. either, especially when you are trapped in a small space with a stinker!

I would have to say roof tar is pretty bad, but right there with it I would have to put rotten fish. The apartments I use to live in, these guys would go fishing every weekend then clean the fish and dump the junk in the dumpster that was close to my door! Come summer it was unbearable!

I have this really old dog who smells even if he has been bathed. It is like everything sort of sticks to him and the smells work their way in. His farts are lethal and his breath is just atrocious. He loves to sit right beside me, especially if I am eating and it just kills me. I have developed allergies over the last few months and I think part of it is because of the dog and all his various stenches.

I can't stand the smell of frsh, hot tar. I think the worst smell for me is the compost heap in my town on a windy day in late July. The heat has gotten to it all summer and it just stinks to high heaven!

I will always stay upwind in late July from that compost heap I think. The little one in our back yard is enough for me!
