Am I the only one who likes the smell of the home perm then?
It may be because I like most raw chemical smells.
As for perfume, I'm with Phil, it doesn't make me ill exactly but I get various allergic reactions, mostly sore throat accompanied by sneezing, headache, sore eyes, runny nosemtrouble breathing and an anger response.
Perfume seems to be compulsory in so many things that I have great trouble shopping. I am restricted to only two hair shampoos, one soap, one sun tan lotion, one washing up liquid, one clothes washing liquid, one deodourant, etc.
The aisle in the supermarkets with all the killer poisons in it, washing powders, etc, is also usually the aisle with the cat food so I have to suffer.

My aversion is that bad in some department stores. I can't even go into the womens cosmetic stores. When my wife goes into one to renew the minute amount of cosmetics that I can stand being close to. I have to stand outside or rummage around on another floor.

That's it Phil, I can't go anywhere near the cosmetic areas and most duty free shops in airports are a killer, instant headache and sore throat.
Return flights can also be a bit dodgy, airlines still sell perfumes on board and people mostly buy this stuff on the return flight and then spray it about to see who they can slay, sorry I meant to say "see what it smells like".

My wife tried for years to find a scent that I could get by with. After many years we came across the "Opium" range. For some reason I can stand this although she never uses it overpoweringly.

So all her cosmetics are now from that range, except her hairspray which is scentless and she gets that from Boots.

Another think I can't stand are these cheap air freshener sprays. They make me heave to be quite blunt.

I think Opium is the one 'er next door uses after all others became banned many years ago.

The best use for cheap air freshener or to get rid of cheap perfume. Spray your bin bags with it and the cats don't tear em apart.

The strange thing is, that I can wear after shave and deodorant and it doesn't affect me once I have got it on. I can't even smell it then.

One of the reasons I stopped doing domestic jobs was due to air fresheners. People smoking was bad enough but at least I could ask them to go outside, air fresheners get into the fabric of the building and linger for months after they have been removed,
I don't even like repairing other peoples comptuters and AV equipment on my bench if they have an air freshener at home, it chokes me unless I leave them to air for a few days.

Volty Three of the perfumes that used to drive me mad, when the college girls came into our pub at lunch time.
Please excuse spellings. Este Lauder, Charlie and the other one you had in mind I think was Moondrops. SB
