Like the OP, I get triggered by bad smells, particularly rude ones.
Have a wash, then you won’t need as much perfume.
Use a breath mint if you have horrendous smelly breath.
Wear freshly laundered clothes.
But detergents have scents too.
Please. If you smell bad, stay at home.
"In 2010, the President’s Cancer Panel published a report on cancer risks from chemicals. They concluded that: “The burden of environmentally induced cancers has been grossly underestimated” and highlighted benzene, found in synthetic fragrance, as one of the more concerning substances."
Some people wear cologne (I don't like it either, but I"m not allergic but I've dated someone who was) and you can't change that. All you can do is remove yourself form the situation. You're an adult. Use your words and your legs.
Or are they allergic the same way they're sensitive to gluten?
If you’re so sensitive, YOU should stay home.
Do not expect the world to revolve around you & your issues.
@19 Dabbing a little eau du cologne behind the ears in the 1920s does not at all compare to the perfumed soaps, shampoos, hair products, deodorants, detergents and fabric softeners, on top of whateverthehell Axe body spray is that people coat on themselves in this day and age.
But the correct amount is "so little that one can't smell it unless they're in your personal space". If I can smell you from 10 feet away, you're doing it wrong.
Apologies to the Seattleites who don’t have access to running water, but for everyone else: Wash! Use soap. Wipe yourself properly after toileting. Brush your teeth with something other than faeces. Basics taught at pre-school age.
