What is it about some fragrances that causes headaches and nausea? I actually vomited from the smell of a cheap perfume. The aromachemicals and essential oils in all perfumes are the same. I mean, the same essential oils and aromachemicals found in the most expensive perfumes, can also be found in the cheapest perfumes.
Is that true?
But, why is it that some of the cheapest perfumes cause such terrible symptoms, while the more expensive perfumes do not? Is it just that sometimes the cheaper perfumes have a very high concentration of a certain aromachemical that some people may be too sensitive to it?
I am not talking about inhaling large amounts of perfume. Just being in the same room as someone wearing certain "cheap perfumes" is enough to trigger symptoms
of headache, nausea, and vomiting.
