You know the one. That man or woman who enters a room, and everyone knows it because a cloud of their signature scent precedes them, holding everyone’s nose hostage and even causing headaches in some people. But here’s a scarier thought: maybe that’s you.
There are a number of reasons someone may put on too much perfume or cologne. Some people simply have a weaker sense of smell than others do. Others are under the impression that people are supposed to be able to notice their fragrance without being close to them.
The the most culprits, however, are smokers. Not only can smoking diminish a person’s sense of smell, it can also serve as an undesirable odor for which a smoker feels he or she must overcompensate with a more pleasant fragrance.
To avoid an overdose, do not spray perfume or cologne directly on your skin. Even one or two spritzes can lead to an irritating experience for those around you. Instead, give one spray directed upwards in the space in front of you, and then walk through the falling mist. Anyone who gets close to you will enjoy the subtlety of your scent, and everyone else will breathe easy.
