    she's a office s.(try and figure what the s stands for, i dont want to blurt it).
    many dislike her, so why should we/I buy anything for her?

    also, weaker concentration means she'll pump more to get the smell out.
    sort of defeats the purpose aint it?

    perhaps suggest nicely that your nose is wee bit sensitive to strong parfume, would greatly appreciate it if the person could go lightly on the parfume....

    it worked for me

    1) Keep coughing in front of him/her.

    2) Pinch your nose.

    3) If all fails.... put more perfume on yourself and mask her/him out

    Tell HR to post a notice that employees should not be wearing excessive perfumes?

    Make HR do something useful for once.

    the way to apply perfume is to dab a little, so that the smell is subtle, and only people within close range like 1-2 meters can feintly get your scent.
    i really wonder HOW she apply.i think she empty one whole bottle every morning on herself.

    even my office tea lady also complain.can u guys believe it?

    now my office door closed, but i swear i can still smell it.

    btw static, the 2nd suggestion is a little 'rude' to her.
    i've no intention to make enemies but to do that, it's kind of face-tearing...

    Everybody wear their N95 masks on cue the moment she steps into the office.
    Maybe she'll get the hint.

    the only time we dont get the smell is fridays when we're allowed slightly casual and she comes in in jeans.
