    You have a tea lady!

    Use her as the sacrificial lamb, just pour tea over your colleague everyday, will cleanse the smell away.

    Give your tea lady the most pungent perfume and let her outdo your colleague.

    Then ask your management to declare all the weekday as Friday then you all wear casual then she cannot wear that perfume.

    Girls like that usually do it to get the attention of guys. Try to get a guy in the office who she respects or at least gets along with her to hint to her during a casual conversation or maybe joke, joke so she won't feel offended, and yet get the hint.

    Hahaha.. i'm facing exactly the same problem.. imagine an office with only 5 staff.. where 2 of them use 1/20 of a bottle of perfume per day..

    I became the bad guy & just told them frankly that their perfume was too overwhelming & giving me a headache..

    Sometimes drastic measures are required in drastic situations

    Tot of 4 possible ways.

    1) just tell her directly. Go and chat with her, after 2mins rub ur irritated nose and say "wah ur perfume very strong ley."

    2) Do step 1. Simulate nose bleed.

    3) Do step 1 & 2 and run away.

    4) find a temp staff for 1 day, tell the temp staff to say "wah, ur perfume very strong." then ask the temp staff to go home. Let ur colleagues spread the news that temp staff quit within 1 hour.
    Don't cry because its over,:)Smile because it happened.

    Get an ashtray and light a few matches in there. The smoke will mask the perfume. It works for me. You're lucky your problem is perfume. My problem is NO PERFUME..
    Have this colleague who stinks of onions, garlic and curry powder PLUS an undescribable odour that is so bad he leaves a trial of smell everywhere he goes. Wherever in the office I go, I know if he was there. There was this time, he was standing under the aircon outlet and he raised his arms to cool down after going out for lunch... My eyes teared a bit. It was an unspeakable horror. Until today, I still don't have the guts (or out of being polite) to ask him to do something about his BO.
