Over the years, I have become sensitive to fragrances. I learned to dodge department store employees who handed out samples and tried to spray a bit of the smelly stuff on my wrist as I passed by. Now, I avoid the perfumed papers in the sale advertisements these same stores mail to customers. There are so many of them between the pages that the fragrances mingle together and they all smell the same. Eau d´ Putrid.
