Does it bother you when other people wear strong perfume or after shave?

Since I have asthma and allergies, it bothers me greatly and is actually a danger when people in closed places like elevators, or public places like theaters wear strongly scented perfumes and after shave, as though they had bathed in them! I noticed that even in my drs. office there is a sign not asking that people not wear strong scents due to the problems they can cause certain other patients. Does it bother you when other people wear strong perfumes, cologne, or after shave? If so, why? Thank you. Karen
