My worst olfactory experience ever!
This just smells WRONG period. There's being edgy and there's being downright vile, this is the latter. I've tested scents that I've disliked even found that some have brought on a headache but never have I felt my stomach turn so much that I have the urge to vomit.......until I tried this. Harsh maybe, but true from my experience.

Monsters' balls...
What's wrong with all you people?
This is a nice barbershop fragrance!
Of the kind where Sweeney Todd welcomes his elite clientele of Count Dracula, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (these "two" get a retail price), Hannibal Lecter, The Joker, Marquis De Sade and Pinhead (which of course gets a special pincers treatment).
And while they're waiting for their turn, they're nibbling on pornstars and young virgins, cause pheromones and other magnificent secretions is what all these nice gentlemen like the best.
Word has it that an akin salon de beaute for ladies is already in the making, and that Countess Erzsébet Báthory along with Lizzy Borden, Bellatrix Lestrange, Annie Wilkes and Mystique have already made a reservation. Oh, and that a fresh lot of pornstars and young virgins is already stocked and waiting too.
Jokes aside, monstrosity doesn't even begin to describe this niche, but not nice in the slightest, "achievement" of modern perfumery. Just imagine something like this being launched anytime between '60s-'80s. There would be riots in the streets, and its creator would be very lucky if (s)he escaped being burned at the stake. Most likely in a fire fueled by the alleged stinkers of the era, like Joop! Homme and Charlie, which, regardless of whether someone liked them or not, they were still considered fragrances.
But no matter how atrocious, every dog has its day, and this foul smelling mutt would make an ideal olfactory camouflage for a zombie apocalypse.
There's nothing more I can say, other than this is one of the very rare cases where that much avant-garde should be illegal.

A KICK IN THE SCENTS/CENTS/SENSE
Ok. So I had to try this, having heard read and watched so many reviews I gave in and sniffed.
first just the from the bottle, and straight away the loudest note seems to be the rot. Kind of blocked shower in the gym rot, so pretty bad, but not stomach heavingly bad, or maybe having two kids a dog and two cats kinda desensitises you to catagorise bad smells differently, it calms down a little and that milky sweetness comes in, not removing the rot you understand just mellowing it a little. And my my it does hang around:-+
Would I wear this, ? no. Actually NO!!!!!!!
However I do applaud etat for having some serious balls, you need this type of risk taker in all walks of life.
And I think its a must smell if you take perfume and its development serious.
go forth and ....... well, smell.

I do not know what it is about this fragrance, it has a metallic smell and it's not even that disgusting. But just smelling the vial and the plastic bag it came in makes me gag. I can't put my finger on it why I react this way, but I can't smell it without getting strange associations. And I just gag.

does anyone really wear this?
I smell blood right at the start, and I almost barfed. Scrubbing it off and not passing this sample onto anyone. Does anyone buy this?

Oh goodie! Finally, a perfume for the Anti-Christ amongst us!
At the risk of sounding harsh...

I cannot possibly think of anyone wanting to wear something that smells like blood, semen, sweat, rank fish, or rotting eggs. To say that this thing smells unpleasant is a gross understatement. Sometimes a perfumer banks on her/his followers' open mind to purchase their progressive, funky formulations. In this case however, I hate to inform the nose behind this perfume that it would take a whole a lot more than an "open mind" to appreciate such vileness. This is not a masterpiece or even a remotely pleasant creation; as it takes no special talent to concoct such a cringe-worthy potion. Though it probably does require an exaggerated sense of grandeur to think someone would actually cough up that much money for a full bottle of this diseased conception. Moreover, as if to add to its evil threshold, the stink wouldn't come off after a series of thorough washing and persisted far after my numerous attempts at its annihilation. They say curiosity killed the cat. In this case, this beast definitely knocked out my olfactory senses for a few days.

Let's just rename this perfume "Odeur de L'enfer", shall we?

Oh No!!!!....
Hideous to the extreme is all I have to say here. I do not get blood or semen as some get... I just get a hideous milky metallic accord that is absolutely repulsive, making my eyes blur, and is the first scent I have worn that physically makes me sick. I am wearing it as I write this and I really have to wash this off me... NOW. The sample I acquired was an experience that I will be sure never to forget, but I should have avoided it as others have wisely advised several times over. This one gets my vote for worst scent ever... What was Turin thinking in giving it 5 stars?... No way does this deserve any more than a zero from me!

Sex! Murder! Mutilation!
THE carnival sideshow freak of all perfumes. A concoction fit for only for a zombie. This truly is literally nauseating. Imagine it is 100 degrees fahrenheit with sweltering humidity and the electricity has gone out in the city for the past several hours. Time of day is in the late afternoon. You have just opened the door and walked in on a horrifically bloody, gruesome, sex/murder/mutilation crime scene before the Crime Scene Investigators arrive. THAT is what this smells like. Apply and inhale deeply if you wish to become agitated and then start to retch. MONSTROUS.

The Great Unknown
When I bought a sample set of perfumes from Etat Libre d'Orange, I of course had to test this notorious fragrance right away.

I don't smell blood. I don't smell dirty vagina. I don't smell sperm.

I don't know WHAT I smell, but it is not perfume. This is not a perfume. I have no clue what they manufactured here, it's definitely unpleasant and it's not a perfume.

30 mins and I gave up. I had to scrub twice to get it off me. I agree, it's awful. Is it rot I smell?

I think I will have to test it again someday, just to try and figure out what the H*ll this is.

Jeffrey Dahmer in a bottle
Secretions Magnifiques is a smell, not a perfume. And a bad one too. It reeks of rotten eggs, semen and partially dried blood - a sweet-metallic concoction that reminds of a slaughterhouse waste dump. I'm generally rather thick-skinned when it comes to all kinds of smells, but this one does kick in my gag reflex.

It's so animalistic and organic and reminiscent of our bodily secretions and excretions that it mentally transports me right down into a hospital morgue, awakening disturbing feelings of thanatophobia and nosocomephobia. It smells of death.

Katie Puckrik said on her video review that Secretions Magnifiques makes her think of a crime scene and I have to admit this is probably the most suitable image to go with what you actually smell in this fragrance.

The horror!

To spray on people that you hate.
