I have mild perfume allergies. If I go into one of those stores at the mall that sells perfumes or candles, I find it hard to breath, I start sneezing like mad and my eyes get all teary. I avoid those stores like the plague! If you find yourself having an allergic reaction to these scents and you are stopping up, have you tried Benedryl yet? I personally can wear the stuff but I avoid heavy doses on other people as much as possible.
