    Another way is to tell your boss, if the "air pollution" problem is not fixed, you start working remote from home. Btw, it's your boss's job to talk to HR to get polution problem fixed.
    one of my male colleagues came over and told me something realllllllllllllll crude.
    he asked me if she has smelly ....er....i'm quite sure you guys know what i'm referring to.

    Some people are allergic to perfumes scents and their sinuses act up pretty badly. I know this to be true as it affected me in the past but now that there are no such scents, I don't suffer from sinuses. Perhaps you can use this reasoning to ask her to reduce her daily dosage of perfume, if not eradicate it entirely.

    Of course I won't recommend that you eradicate the source completely by eliminating/terminating her with extreme prejudice! Hehe!

    But seriously, the sinus bit is true!

    Also, Jeanie, mebbe your colleague also suffers from BO, that's why she's trying to cover up with perfume??
    i was wondering about that but no.when i was near her, i did deliberately look for the BO scent under the blanket of perfume but i dont think she has BO

    sigh...this is REALLY a problem at work for me.
    you guys know how personal perfumes are.if you dont like a particular smell, and you HAVE to tolerate it everyday...sigh...

    and so much so for saying when one is accustomed to the smell, you will tend not to notice it.
    apparently this is really not true at all.

    hahahahhaha!cannot lah.

    as much as i cant tolerate the smell, but i dont want to tear face with her.
    so it's best if there's a 'subtle' way lah.

    but i guess anoynomous email suggestion by Sion should work.
    but then again not everyone reads emails from anoynomous accounts.
    not to mention in a banking sector, we must be very careful with our computers.

    BO, i usually tell my male colleagues DIRECTLY.i think it's because they know my character and me well, and we very arh one.

    but for this office s, i dont want to do that cos who knows i may get 10 daggers in my back the next day.

    it's a killing fields out here man...

    there's another thing i couldnt stand about her....she has manfrotto for legs.
    (want to guess what that means?)
    Woman to man maybe can be direct. Man cannot be direct to women in these cases. Hell hath no fury...

    As for the manfrotto legs I'm guessing
    1) She's very tall and can transmit her scent everywhere
    2) She's got very thin legs
    3) She's got 3 legs (as in she's a he?)
