My family also owns a Ragdoll. She is a "Flame Point." I wear cologne. I am currently testing "citrus scents." I still have 10 decants to complete. Our cat has not been negatively affected by my perfumes. I have only been a BN member for a few months and have searched for my favorites ever since. Cacio has included an excellent point. Many tend to wear entirely to much cologne, especially if one is using "spray." We all enjoy smelling good. This is obvious, or we would not be BN members, but many, myself included, snicker at the man who overpowers an entire room with fragrance. In Italian we say "Boots stesso bouton y France." In our family it translates to "stinks like a French *****." I have edited the words, as to respect the forum, but I am sure you are able to fill in the blanks. :-)
I have asthma, and have no issues with scents applied directly to my skin, but spray frags and even air fresheners bother me much. Once again, this parallels what Cacio has stated.
Dan, the situation is quite ironic because Ragdolls are popular for many reasons, with one being they are less bothersome to those allergic to cats, then are other breeds. This is because their saliva is a bit different than other cat breeds. Actually, people are not allergic to the cat dander, they are allergic to the saliva which sticks to fur, when the animal is grooming itself.
Good luck Dan.
