Me too!  Perfume or cologne....I have a co-worker I have to step back from to talk to, hers is so overpowering.

They are actually considering fragrance laws in some states because so many people have allergies and aversions to this stuff. Its gross. My son has a serious fragrance allergy. Every time someone with scented lotion or anything touches him he gets rashes and hives.

I also have allergic reactions to it. And yes, to women's also. But the thing that gets me is, don't men realize they're actually repulsing me (when their intention seems to be to attract) with those awful chemical scents. Yuck. And too, it makes the animal in me suspicious. Yes, have good hygiene so you don't stink. But why are you trying to mask your natural smell, you know? There are natural oils that you can but on so lightly that you'd have to be very close to smell. Other than that, I wish perfumes and colognes would be outlawed. So many places are scent-free now. That trend needs to keep spreading.

So true! My partner is allergic to fragrance so never wears anything. It was so nice when we were dating. I still fall asleep  with my head in his armpit. Pheromones are the best!
