So what would you suggest if I have to go to the 12th floor of a building in an elevator? Your answer is a perfect example of the term INCONSIDERATE.

How long is the ride? What if people don't like the way you smell?

Anyone remember ""Poison""? I always get VERY air sick-many bags. One time I forgot the meds(never again) and the woman next to me was wearing ""Poison"". We were flying cross country. I was very ill.

I have had to ask the stewardess to change my seat because i was wheezing from the person next to me's perfume. i was upgraded to first class as that was the only empty seat.

Perfume should be banned in public.

Re: ~~ Wearing Perfume on Airplanes ~~

Working were I do, I've smelled passengers who have soaked themselves in their perfume/cologne, bad body odor, and who positively reek of pot.

I always feel bad for the other passengers on their flight.

Was Yuban, then changed to Plaid Pants due to forum upgrade, and apparently, I'm back to being Yuban.

That must have been a long time ago. There are now only a handful of 1st class seats. People fight to get them by using their miles. We flew this past week and there were 12 people ahead of us on the upgrade list one way and 7 ahead of us the other way.

I do not understand what me's is.

Suppose the person was singing off key in the plane, suppose a couple of others were doing the same only different tunes would that be acceptable? While it may give you a headache, it wouldn't shut down your breathing.

How anyone can think they have the right to stink up places with their scent is beyond comprehension.

Kind of like the attitude many smokers have.

I don't ever wear heavy scents. I don't need to really smell it on myself. I think people go overboard because they went to smell it on themselves.

Men's cologne is very strong and overpowering.

There is one particular scent that is extremely strong - Estes Lauder's Youth Dew. I can smell that a mile away. It makes me nauseous.

When I was in my 20's I actually liked that fragrance. Either my taste in scent has changed or they have changed it in some way. Now it always smells like spoiled,old perfume to me. You know that stink past the date perfume and cologne smell?

I too can smell it coming.

Re: ~~ Wearing Perfume on Airplanes ~~

I think I am very considerate as I don't expect others to change their ways for me...I adapt to the situation by being prepared to handle my own problems.If I have a problem I have never felt that it was other peoples responsibility.
