“If it’s a good friend, you should tell her, “ a friend said when asked what would she do if someone she knew doused herself with too much perfume. “If not, just open a window.”
“To me,” said Yvette, “perfume should be a surprise. Someone gives you a hug and suddenly realizes and likes the scent. Perfume shouldn’t announce someone’s arrival.”
Once a scent seeker always a scent seeker, man or woman even in a car - the person using ounces and ounces of perfume a day thinks nothing of festooning his/her car with smelly little trees or scented clips that fit onto vents.
Yvette’s advice is to say nothing. I think I’d go along with the good friend route and say something because too much perfume can be so nauseating it becomes a stinky proposition.
