It really annoys me if I find a person wearing a strong perfume. The strong perfume gives me a sense that the person wearing it is not keeping himself/herself clean.

I admit that I do tend to over spray my favorite scent but my perfumes are not at all that bad to smell. In fact, most of my officemates compliment me about it and some even asked what it's called so they could buy some for themselves. I guess it depends on what kind of perfume you wear. Sometimes if the scent is really sweet you tend to turn your gaze on the person who's wearing it and sometimes, you just want to run away from a person depending on the kind of scent they wear.

I can't wear perfume myself as I am allergic to it. If someone near me wears a strong perfume, then I just start sneezing. I usually end up moving away from them. Perfume is supposed to be less is best.

There have been occasions when I have had to move seats on a bus or train because of someone's really pungent perfume. I like wearing perfume myself, but not strong scents. I wonder sometimes why people feel the need to soak themselves with really strong perfumes, it can be so unpleasant for others around you

Oh I agree. I think the worst time for this is Christmas morning at church. Everyone is wearing the perfume they got that morning for Christmas and with everyone's mixed together it drives me nuts. I have started going the night before because I get nothing out of mass when I am trying to keep my eyes from watering due to a mixture of way too much perfume.

I don't really like perfume and i don't wear it for the very reason you've just given. If someone doesn't like the scent you are wearing they might think badly of you even if they don't mean to.

I don't like to smell it too strong, but I do like smelling it, if I like that fragrance. I especially like it on men. I am giving you a + rating for your fine post. It should help you with your star points.
