    • A person’s perfume or cologne may smell good, but I’m sensitive to scents so it bothers me and I have to move away.  Sometimes their perfume lingers and that also effects me.  At work it is not allowed, but there’s a couple of staff and  sometimes kids who douse themselves.

    • Without reading beyond this inital question, I’m going to tell you ladies that perfumes and colonges riles up my sensitivites to chemicals and I often end up with asthma, bronchitis and pneumonia, one after the other in a snowball effect. It then affects my liver, kidneys,
      heart and soft tissues (as in joints, gums and anything with a mucus membrane). I have experienced dizziness, vomiting, diarrhea and mental confusion while in the cloud of these chemical fumes and have to leave. I limit my times in public and stay home to recouperate from necessary trips for groceries, the bank, gassing up my truck, etc.

    • YES! I tried to lodge a complaint at work because some women I worked around have a habit of “spritzing” while in their cubicles. I have to cover my coffee or food and it was never a quick shot it was always two or three, lingering in the air for hours. My complaint was that there were almost 200 women in that section, what if all of them spritzed? We’d pass out from all those chemicals. The powers that be said ‘if you asked them nicely not to spray it around you, that should work.’ I said that’s easier to do when the person works in your own department! I just get up and go get some fresh air, I keep my fan going almost all year round to keep the perfumes away from me.

    • YES!!!  I’m allergic to most perfumes, my eyes water, my nose runs, and if I’m around it long enough, perfume will trigger a migraine.  I used to dread going to church because too many women there wore too much perfume and I couldn’t get away from it.

    • Giorgio  was the worst and we had a temp secretary who must have not just bathed in it but drunk it - I had to let her go as the scent was just so much - Dior Poison was another which made me retch.
      A whiff or just a lingering trace but full on blast is awful - one thing about the London Underground in a morning in the summer the mingling of strong scents and BO and last nights curry and beer ....... what a magical scent to start your day !

    • Yes.
      I think you should consider other people when you put perfume on.  One of employee at my job had an allergy, so I did not use any perfume.  I remember coming to work and somebody used ‘Paloma Picasso‘- lots of it.  It was so strong I got a terrible headache.

    • Some of the worst offenders are older women and people who smoke.  Trust me no matter how much you put on if you smoke you still reek of it.

    • I hear ya on the smoking, Judy! I can’t stand to be inside the homes of people who smoke inside it. My # one rule is No Smoking in my home, and I don’t smoke in my truck either.

    • Giorgio was very tough on the senses and to think I bought a small bottle last year, shame on me!..lol..luckily, I am not bothered by perfumes or cologne...what does bother me is a person that smells like they have not bathed or wiped their behind correctly and therefore the stench is enough to kill anyone and trust me when you are in line at a store, the smell wafts around.ohhhhheartbreak
