Give him/her a weaker perfume.....
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?:rolleyes:

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

it's a she.
hard to do so.very 'in the face' and she may think i'm 'jealous.'

i bet you guys can smell her from where u are now.

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...:what:

Is she wearing the same perfume for the whole week or she change every other day?

24/7.
the only time we dont get the smell is fridays when we're allowed slightly casual and she comes in in jeans.

If it's a him, I'm gonna faint.



Everybody wear their N95 masks on cue the moment she steps into the office.
Maybe she'll get the hint. :)
N95 doesnt remove smell.
