I think, for once, the OP has some valid points. I only say for once because I'm tired of all the bashing some threads have. Back to point....I was in church recently and a very nice lady had on perfume so heavy I could actually taste it. GAH!!! Scents are nice---I used to use them BUT there comes a time I would say to use them sparingly. Many folks have allergies, as do I, OR they might have asthma. Fragrances can trigger a response that can be quite serious. SOOO this is a serious topic to address for sure. Since this was about a woman---the same can be said about men who put too much after shave on or cologne.

And what about when you are in a restaurant preparing to enjoy a meal and someone sits down with perfume so strong even the Baccala is offended? LOL

I'm glad to see you posting again Chatbrat!

I am not sure what the solution is? Ban all perfumes, soaps included, all after shave lotions, my husbands is sooo sexy....
Sometimes the problem might be that people cannot smell the scent or they get used to it and don’t notice it any more. To me the latrine smells are far more offensive, do we ban people with diapers too? What about natural body smells, in some groups, there is a genetic natural body odor that infects everything they touch. Sometimes it takes months to get their odor out of furniture, even though personally they are very clean and hygienic.
That is why I would like to see really good ventilation in public buildings.

I will chip in for a portable fan.

An offensive odor not brought up and under our control is bad breath. There are many who can't smell their own garlic or halitosis. Many who do not know how to clean their teeth and gums properly, or should just leave strong smelly food for when they are spending the evening alone.

Then the guys who drink beer and have awful flatulence. Boy, the human race is really stinky.

Also those whose mouths smell like an ash tray. And those who don't keep their homes clean and everything smells like old underwear. And some who don't keep their cars nice and clean inside either. And those who smell like their pet elephant who doesn't wash between his legs.

And of course we all know when Lulu is back in town.

Does this mean I have to throw out my stash of Jean Naté?

A sigh is just a gust of wind that rises from the heart.
But when it takes a downward course, it changes to a f___t.

OOh my -- forgive me

I wore black socks for two days in a row this week. But that was to hide the bloodstains. I danced so hard (barefoot, doh) in the Square I developed blood blisters that burst almost immediately. I was, quite literally, a bloody mess.

Back to wearing white socks now, but walking around in open-toed shoes will have to wait another few days. I can go in the pool, finally, but only as long as I bandage up again when I get ready to go back to the house.

On-topic: wearing too much of any scent is overwhelming to most people, but some folks are more sensitive than others, and some are especially sensitive to certain fragrances or natural essential oils. I have an old miniature bottle of Shalimar that belonged to my mom. She kept it on her dresser and I remember seeing it back in the 1960's. It could be even older than that but I was born in '61 so I wouldn't remember any further back The alcohol has completely evaporated, leaving just a brown smudge of perfume base at the bottom of the bottle. When I open it, it smells exactly as it did when it was full, over 50 years ago. I open it once in awhile when I'm feeling nostalgic. The smell brings back good memories.
