Sub Q serum: is it just me or does it smell horrible?

I've been using the Hylamide sub Q serum for about a week. It has made my skin look fab, BUT I find the smell nauseating. A bit like raw meat and stale bread; I have to hold my breath when putting it on because the smell makes me feel a bit sick.

Is it just me? Or have I got a bad batch? Opinions, please!

I have it and can't say I notice a smell at all. I can sniff it in the morning and check!

Would you mind? I have to steel myself before I put it on! Thanks.

Does smell a bit odd. You do get used to it though!

No prob, I'm home in early hours so shall have a sniff. Or waft it in front of the cat for his opinion!

I use it, haven't noticed it smelling of anything. Maybe you have a faulty one?

Just sniffed. No discernible smell. Made cat sniff it and he did a hmm face and tried to lick it (he runs from anything strong smelling)

Yes I've just bought some and the first thing I noticed was the awful smell.

It does smell.

Not just me then! Hollinhurst's cat is welcome to drink mine. Perhaps it's the smell of raw meat that attracts him.

It definitely smells unpleasant.
Makes me pretty though
