    @mrshunnybunches:  I don’t wear perfumes/scents because I have allergies.  I usually don’t have a problem with other people wearing it, unless they’re bathing in perfume.

    @mrshunnybunches:  I do. I did ask my perfume-sensitive coworker if what I wear bothers her, and she said no, so I think I’m in the clear.

    I don’t own like any unscented products, but I don’t layer stuff on either, and I have a pretty good idea what’s ok to mix and what isn’t.

    As long as you wear a fairly light perfume then I think it’s ok. I wear Flora by Gucci almost every day. It is really light, and fades pretty fast. Heavier scents like Chanel No. 5 or Opium or Fendi or Organza can be a bit much for the office.

    My body lotion (Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula) is also fairly light smelling.

    As long as you don’t bathe in it, and don’t have to sit like right next to someone who is sensitive to perfume I think it’s acceptable to wear it. I get compliments on how nice I smell whenever people get close to me lol. Perfume is a pleasure for me and I would absolutely hate to give it up. I’d feel naked without it!

    I don’t wear anything daily but I do wear purfume on occasion.  I’m just not a morning person and I forget to put it on more often than I remember!

    As long as you aren’t spraying half the bottle each time you use perfume, I don’t see anything wrong with wanting to smell nice when you go to work. I dab a little on my neck/behind my ears, on my wrists and a little spritz on clothes and I am good to go. I understand people not wanting to be around people who smell like they bathed in their bottle of Chanel No.5, but unless there is a policy at your work that says perfume is not allowed, I would ignore whoever told you you shouldn’t be wearing perfume for your day to day work.

    Yes, I wear perfume every day.  I wear Rain by Marc Jacobs.  A spritz of perfume shouldn’t bother anyone-its the people who smell like they bathed in it (you can smell them coming toward you!) that most people have a problem with-even I do.  I end up with a headache if I’m around someone slathered in perfume.

    I don’t see how your work can force you to NOT wear perfume unless its a work-wide policy.

    I wear perfume everyday : Coco Mademoiselle by Chanel. I don’t think it ever bothered anyone at work…

    I wear perfume almost every day. But you have to get really close to smell it, and I’ve never had complaints. I wear various Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab perfume oils, and Jo Malone Necterine Blossom and Honey.

    I’m highly sensitive to strongly scented products like perfumes and body sprays, and where I work in a small cubicle near other CSRs (many of whom douse themselves in heavy fragrances), a lot of times I wind up with excruciating headaches, dizziness and rashes.  It’s no fun, because I used to love testing scents at Sephora.

     

    I still use my lightly scented shampoo and conditioner, and I use classic dove soap, but that’s pretty much it.  I don’t usually use hairsprays or anything either, just a spritz of Moroccan Oil (and I even find that powerful at first, but the scent dies down quickly enough that it’s not too bad).

    I use perfume almost daily but it’s a pretty light clean scent (Tommy Girl) and I don’t usually work with clients so I don’t worry about reactions/sensitivity…. Not really a fan of scented lotions for some reason….

    I love my perfume, but I only wear it if I know it won’t bother people (e.g. I won’t wear it to class, to work, if we’re going to be in the car for a while, etc.). I do wear scented body butter from the Body Shop daily though.

    I love D&G Light Blue. It smells amazing and it’s very light. I wouldn’t mind wearing that one to work. The classrooms at my university are actually scent free. I appreciate it, because strong perfumes give me a headache that lasts for hours and hours.

    I wear a body spray every day (…that I remember to). It’s light and fades quickly, though I can usually still smell it from time to time. I also don’t work close to people.

    I do have a coworker who bathes in awful perfume, so the smell sticks around whenever she’s over here. I had a sneezing fit yesterday because of it. :

    @mrshunnybunches:  Many workplaces have fragrance free environments, and I am very grateful for that. Sure, some people don’t overkill but for those who do, the scent can be overwhelming and nauseating. Seems some people use scents instead of showers.

    I wear Very Hollywood by Michael Kors. I’ve been wearing for probably close to 3-4 years now, and I’ve only ever received compliments. However, I don’t bathe in it. Just a couple squirts in the morning. 🙂
