The worst smell in the world is smokers. There lives a few in my building and in my dad’s as well. You can’t be in peace anywhere. Even sweat smell better than cigarettes. I wrote a post about that before. This post is the 2nd part of it.
The other disgusting fragrance is people who wear too much of it. I have an atopic skin and strong smells are bad for me. I have to hold my breath and I start to sneeze. I get eczema if I’m around strong smells for too long. That’s one of the reasons I can’t work as a cleaner or in a working environment with strong detergents. It’s the same with cigarette smoke. I just can’t be around smokers. When smoking was allowed in restaurants or pubs, I couldn’t be there. Now they all outside so I can’t be there either. Either way, I never go to pubs anyway because they’re boring.
Some people have no respect for others. They splash their perfumes like they haven’t showered for years and then they get out in public to spread their odours around. I can’t even walk past a perfume shelf in the store without feeling a headache. I always walk pass them while holding my nose. Even if I used perfume on myself in the past, I always sneeze so I don’t use it anymore.
I don’t know what kind of poison people use when they wash their clothes. Every time I go to the laundry room in my dad’s building, there’s always an awful smell in there. There are washing powders that don’t smell but some seem to buy something cheap. Maybe they put more than they should. It’s probably something that is bad for the environment. That’s the problem with having to use the same laundry room as other people. Sometimes I wish we had a washing machine of our own but the problem is a lack of space to put the things to dry. You just have to accept how things are. So far I haven’t got any other symptoms than eczema. Some people are even more sensitive to strong smells than I am. For them, fragrances are a nightmare. If people would be more considerate of others, then people with hypersensitivity of fragrances could enjoy life more. Instead of using perfumes or aftershave for men, how about taking a shower instead. Clean is the new fragrance and the ozone layer will thank you.

I can relate , there is this guy that comes into the coffee shop where i work at; and you can smell his cologne (perfume) from all the way back in the kitchen . Its ridiculous the amount of perfume some people wear . It must be a challenge living in a city and being allergic to so many chemicals and perfumes. I wonder if people would start selling and buying more all natural perfumes (with lots of common allergy ingredients not included) , that less people would have to deal with these problems .
I guess some people don’t know the difference between smell and scent. That man probably thought he smelled devine 😀
