I know from my grandmother a simple rule in wearing perfume. Like a drop or two behind our ears and our inner wrist. In my opinion, I find it ridiculous that some people needed to wear their perfume all over their body. have sensitive nose and would be sneezing immediately at the smell of a strong scent. I used to wear perfume lightly. I would squirt a small amount of perfume on my wrists, ears and chest. How do you like to wearing your perfume?strong or lightly?

i cannot stand a person wearing strong perfume. i, myself, don't like to wear perfume. if i do, it would be very very slight and when i attend parties or meeting special appointments. i prefer to wear cologne and love its soft smell. i could not stand strong smell even on taxicabs. once, i got on one taxicab and as i opened the door, the strong smell of the freshener (was it? it didn't do its purpose .. , was what really "welcomed" me. i kept silent for a while in order not to slight the taxicab driver. but as i could no longer bear the strong smell (it was some perfume that they sprayed, i guess), i told the driver that i could no longer breathe because of it. i requested that i open the windows of the taxicab while en route to the office.

Too strong a perfume makes me dizzy. I can handle it, but you may always tell from my face. Usually I like light perfumes, but they have to be quite good!

I like a good perfume that is strong enough to last for the whole night whilst i am out.I think it is nice for people to smell the perfume that you are wearing,but if it is too over powering it is not always to ever bodys taste.I wear Avon perfume as that seems to smell nice as well as lasts most of the night whilst i am out.

People have different thing they like in life, style and everything, for me i like to wear light perfume rather than hard or strong essence, Im not comfortable using perfume all around my body because its hard for me to breath, lol.

Hello icesmile, what an interesting discussion about the over use of scents, some people really do not know where to stop in their application of it, and the cheaper it is the more they tend to use for some reason. Some people use it to cover up the fact that they don't shower and one can be nearly knocked out by the cheap and over pervasive nasty aroma. The correct way to apply scent is actually to spray in the air in front of oneself and then walk through it, but this only applies to the spray kind.

I usually put perfume after I take a shower. They say it stays longer. I also dab just a small amount on my pulse points such as what you've said, behind the ears, on the inner wrist, and a bit on the chest. It is obviously effective because it stays longer. I don't wear strong perfume because I sneeze everytime I smell a strong one.

Strong perfume is yucky... Seriously, it's mild and fruity/floral all the way! Not that stuff that would make others choke and get a headache. Like why don't people wearing fragrances consider those around them? They're self centered! Honestly, there's others out there who as asthma and complications! And there goes those with crazy strong fragrances who are there to make their situations more worse. :P

I can not stand a person wearing strong perfume, or chewing strongly flavoured gum, or with strong breath from food. Any kind of an overpowering scene be it one deemed positive (perfume, soap etc) or a negative stink, will annoy me if it is too strong.
