    Don't worry about the perfume smell lah.

    Your nose will get used to it.

    Some offices will sure have one perfume steam engine one. Same like ours. Now the smell is there but we don't notice it. Maybe our noses are not as sensitive as before?

    Use ointment (etc 'Axe oil' brand) whenever she walks pass.

    Just bear with it if there are no other formal complaints or lodge one to your HR.

    i might be wrong, but i think the most constructive way, would be to tell that person straight when it comes to such issues instead of going one big round telling anyone else, but the right person. i think overly strong perfume is still a relatively easy thing to tell. just be polite and say the perfume would smell better if she puts on lesser and you could maybe gently tell her that some people have ultra sensitive nose. i would say it's a relatively easy thing to tell, as in comparison when you tell someone who has body odour dont you think

    on the other hand, she might have other reasons...
    1. BO
    2. HK feet
    3. Farts a lot
    4. Stay in area where there are other stronger smell around her
    5. Nose got problem
    6. Got unlimited supply of free perfume
    7. A strange DNA abnomality which cases her to have strong perfume-like smell

    may be print out few online articles on excessive perfume (preferably in color as an incentive to read) and leave on her desk?

    If the soft way doesn't work, you can try the hard way.

    be careful with option one. You will publicly humiliate her and she can turn around and sue you and the firm.

    I hv very sensitive nose so everytime anyone put on purfume, i will keep sneezing non stop and the next day will hv flu liao.. Den i spread to whole office. Boss ask why I always sneeze, i said the working enviroment is not good for me.

    I will KPKB and ask loudly who is so smelly.

    Want to invite me to your office to scare her away?
