Does a scent deter you from using it?

Just something I'm noticing lately from reading post. But does a scent really make you not use a product. I understand if the fragrance irritates you, but just in general if you don't like the scent of something, do you not use it?

 

I personally have only come across one product that was too over whelming that made me not want to really use it but I just got over. It was the Ole Henrikson truth cream advance hydratIon. Smelled way too much of oranges and I really didn't like it. But I still use it. What's everyone's opinion?

Lol that's so weird it smelled like that.I got a laugh out of the last line of your comment!

Re: Does a scent deter you from using it?

From now on I'm going to take a wiff of all Sephora brushes before I buy them.  Great brushes but I'm not a fan of stinky ones!

Re: Does a scent deter you from using it?

The scent may stop me from repurchasing something if I really don't like it.  I just started using Josie Maran Argan Daily SPF 40 and the scent brings back memories of my mother trying to pour cough medicine down my throat as a child.  Needless to say, I won't be repurchasing.  I won't return it simply because it's so wasteful but it's not the best way to start the day!

Hmm I don't have a problem with that product. I like it a lot. It weird how things can smell so differently to people.

@nebel- Yeah  that was a long time ago I didn't use it then but I'm glad it doesn't smell that way now.Smiley Happy

I love things that smell like oranges! But there is probably such a thing as too much, I like the green tea smell of Amore Pacific creams but the white tea of Origins A Perfect World products is too strong and I can't bear to put it all over my face. I got a deluxe sample of Bobbi Brown Hydrating Face Cream and I am trying to use it but I hate the smell so so so much, it smells like rancid oil and moldy seaweed.The only thing I have bought online and had to return is a Caudalie scrub, the Merlot one that was on sale a few months ago, it smelled like gasoline. I may be overly sensitive about the way my products smell though, haha.

Re: Does a scent deter you from using it?

I love the way oranges smell as well. The truth serum for instance is a wonderful citrus scent. But the cream! Wayyyy tooo much. I would have returned that scrub as well if it smelled like gasoline!!! How odd. 

Re: Does a scent deter you from using it?

I guess I haven't tried that particular one, maybe they went way overboard and I will hate it too! I tried the Origins Night-a-mins cream the other day and it smells like orange peels in a good way and I really liked the results from one night's use. I will have to get my hands on more than that one foil packet!

Re: Does a scent deter you from using it?

This may seem a bit gross/odd but Estee Lauder lip products smell like tobacco to me. At first I was turned off by the fragrance... but I kind of like it now and own a few products.... .....  ....   ..... stop judging me.

I know its random - maybe mine is a fluke but the Dior Skin Perfect Pore Refining Perfecting Moisturizer smells to me a bit like overripe banana. I don't exactly go for that. I have tried to get over it and ignore that smell because I like the actual product, but I definitely do not reach for it...oh well
