We've all been there, a restaurant, church, classroom, shopping aisle and yes a bar, when someone will walk in and the place turns to weeping eyes and sneezing. How well do you think people take it when asked to "remove" their perfume? But due to stories like the people above who fell ill due to someone's perfume I believe people are starting to look at perfume as the next cigarette.

The day they ban cologne and deodarant is the day I start carrying horse turds in my pocket as a “natural” odor.
Yes, the Obama Administration will begin proscecuting anyone who showers or uses deodorant, and especially if we use perfumes or colognes...We must obey the European “One World” smell requirements.
Clothes-pin sales will skyrocket!
Second hand stink.
There just ain’t no end to doing good.
I’ve got some of those odor eating socks. After the odor eating stuff wears out, should I continue wearing them at risk of being arrested for smelling up the air or throw them away
Are you sure it was pepper spray? Had she eaten Mexican at lunch?
“We’ve all been there, a restaurant, church, classroom, shopping aisle and yes a bar, when someone will walk in and the place turns to weeping eyes and sneezing.”
Actually, no, we’ve not all been there. I’m 50 years old and I’ve never had the above occur. I’ve encountered some women who were wearing way too much perfume, but never to the point of “weeping eyes and sneezing.”
That’s a good thing for you!
You just haven’t been properly programed yet.
Some times when a woman goes by and the perfume nearly knocks ya out ya have to wonder what the smell is she’s trying to cover up.
On the other hand, I have a sensitivity to some scents, including cigarettes, new tires (how weird is that? I stay away from the tire section in Sam's) perfumes, candles, air freshener's. I can't go in my daughter's best friend's house because they must have 10K candles burning, and the child must wear 3 different layers of perfume when she comes over here. Instant migraine for me.
Even some cleaners that I can use for a few months suddenly affect me that way - migraine. Not sniffles or sneezing, just the headache.
That's not anyone else's problem, it's mine. But I do have a rule that no scented products that affect me that way can be worn in my house - drives the teenager crazy, but too bad.
Tax perfume for the sake of the children.
I only posted because she also had the rep of wearing some cheap perfume she used by the gallon.....we always knew when she was within 100 feet in an enclosed area.
Problem a lot of us ladies have is the over application of perfume. You only need a dab.
Some of them give me headaches, so I can understand when people get sick from it.
Rather than make laws, the people should solve this by kindly asking the “perfumed person” to cut it out.
At least I wouldn't need to use my inhaler.
Naw, that’s just my natural o-deer.....
I have the same problem. It’s sad - I have to watch what shampoo I use, buy unfragrented laundry soap, and no scented candles. I’ve had my throat close up once or twice from very bad doses of perfume.
It’s real, and annoying, but I’m not lobbying to ban smelly things.
“You just havent been properly programed yet.”
Sad to say, there is a lot, and I mean a LOT, of truth to that...........
(never pass up an opportunity to be a victim.......)
