    School Lockerooms

    Ok, you're not allowed to eat, or smoke, or light a match in a school lockeroom, but you can spray perfume? With me, when I breathe in perfume it builds phlegm in my throat--so much that I choke on it. I have gym first period every morning, and I'm a girl. You can imagine how...

    Strong Ones

    I cannot tolerate strong perfumes without suffering migraines. Lighter scents are OK, though.

    Proof Today

    I was in Walgreen's and sprayed some perfume on my neck. Later, in the grocery store in the bathroom stall I had a sneezing attack. I used to have severe allergies, but they've mellowed out. I would sneeze over and over again when I was a kid, and just fall on the floor! When I...

    But, I Wear It Anyway ;)

    I've always been allergic to perfume. The problem is, I'm too stubborn to stop wearing it!  I love the way each of my perfumes smell. There are about fourteen different perfumes and body sprays on my desk.  I am not going to let those go to waste! ;D

    Now, I'm not allergic to perfume myself, but that must be awfully annoying, I mean.. at least someone warns you that they have a dog.. but by the time you realize they have it on, you've smelled it, and I assume by then you're reacting allergically.

    I Really Hate It When They Pour It On

    I'm not so much allergic, but my asthma goes haywire when i'm around perfume and cologne.  One of my office mates wears way too much!!!  I gag every time I have meetings with him.

    I've been dealing with eczema like rashes on my neck and wrist on and off for the past year and never really attributed it to my perfume until recently. My parents got me the perfume for my birthday last year and i noticed about a month later i would get a burning...
