I am sampling Rive Gauche pour Homme today, and wow, this thing is tenacious. Sillage *grew* as the day passed, and I had to scrub, to no avail.

I like this scent. Really. But. . . it is one of three very-nice-smelling emetics on my skin.

Two other scents do this to me.

Chanel Antaeus -- again, after the piss notes in the beginning, I really like the drydown, but I get a headache and nausea from wearing it

Chanel Cristalle EdP (not the EdT) -- smells so good, but makes me sick too.

What is it that might be in all three that is inducing my nausea? Aldehydes perhaps?

(And no, I'm not pregnant. )
