*Waves at you
I have in the past have dropped hints to a person who is wearing a strong perfume because they bother me as well. But if they don't take the hint then I get a little more blunt. You can always say something like "That is a really nice scent you're wearing but it is really messing with my allergies. It's making my eyes really itchy, can you please stop wearing it?" That way there is a compliment along with a gentle request. If she refuses to change her scent or stop wearing them, take the complaint to the manager. Because when you say register I am assuming retail or grocery? And if it is bothering you then more then likely it is bothering a consumer with allergies. I know that in the stores that I go to, cashiers no matter what industry are discouraged from using strong scents for that very reason.

I work at a liquor store, currently.
In general I've been told not to wear strong scents (especially to interviews) no matter what the industry. And I'm not sure how to phrase that nicely when referring to hair spray. But thanks.

I just told my new coworker bluntly, as I wheezed in her face, "Your perfume is killing me!" She stopped wearing it and became my best friend.
