My nose freaks over fragrances
Your nose is a very sensitive part of your body, especially when it comes to strong smells. Scented products tend to irritate your nasal passages and cause you to exhibit allergy-like symptoms, such as watery eyes and a runny nose. Though it, may look and feel like an allergic reaction, really your nose just doesn’t like the smell.
There isn’t much you can do to avoid this other than eliminating strong scents from your environment. If you’re interested in wearing a fragrance yourself, try ones that are very lightly scented, or something all natural, like an essential oil.
