    Default Ever been stung by a bee while wearing cologne?

    One time in church, there was a major bee issue going on. I'm sitting there in my pew, and a bee decides to sting me right on the stomach. I ended up with a huge red mark and took benedryl for awhile. I was wearing Chanel Allure Sport (Metal Bottle) at the time. I guess the bee was confused by the sweet flowery aroma or something. Anybody else feel the stinger of a bee due to a certain fragrance?

    I was stung when I wore Lolita Lempicka. Sometimes the bees/wasps would just light on my skin where I sprayed it. Freaked me out to the point I stopped wearing it in the summer, then I gave it up altogether.

    Here are the notes from the basenotes directory: "Top Notes Ivy, Anise Seed. Middle Notes Violet, Amarise, Licorice, Amarena. Base Notes Vetiver, Tonka, Vanilla, Musk."

    The insects sure loved this one!

    Once I was wearing Villoresi and Luca Turin came out of nowhere and sucker-punched me!

    I always thought about this! The only real floral fragrance I have is Fleur du Male although Kenzo Power does have the "imaginary flower" accord. I will wear both at one point and walk slowly in close proximity to a variety of beehives

    I will report my findings

    Beverly Hills. ADP Colonia Intensa. I walked through a swarm of a thousand by accident. Didn't notice until I was surrounded. Didn't panic, slowly progressed through in a confident manner. Not a sting. The parking attendant who approached me after seeing it likened the scene to Jesus walking on water.

    I was chased by a bee for nearly a block while wearing Hypnose Homme by Lancome. I reserved that fragrance for evenings only after that incident!

    Yeah, I was just thinking about Kenzo Power. Imaginary or not, I don't intend on walking around beehives with that one on. Did you see the movie "Pure Luck " with Danny Glover and Martin Short? You might very well swell up like Short if you get too cocky near the hives with Power one!

    Lol. Thankfully no. I'm very allergic to bee stings. Oddly enough, I used to get stung quite often as a kid/teen, but hardly ever recently.

    I've never been stung by a bee, but my friend's dog went nuts at my New Haarlem yesterday. Her nose was attached to my wrist for something like 45 minutes.

    Yep, just once and recently, too. I forget what I was wearing, though. The hornet buzzed around my head and then went down my shirt collar and stung me on my shoulder.

    Yeah I have been buged relentlessly while wearing several fragrances, but twice at work it was really bugging me bad. I was wearing Curve Kicks one time, and I think Hugo the other time.

    I'm no bee expert but keep in mind certain colors also play a part in attracting our little honey making friends.

    So if you're wearing your best spring/summer all yellow or red ensemble along with essential oils of certain flowers then you're just asking for a bee convention.

    Yes, I was stung the first time in life, wearing Paul Smith Story. I was on a bus with around 50 people, and damn bug found me.

    LOL!

    I've heard a lot about this, over the past year or so, and am more careful about wearing sweet fragrances on warm days. I've never been stung before and would like to remain that way.

    I was really chased by a yellow jacket while wearing Jovan White Musk for men. It must be the sweet mellon notes or something that was attracting them -

    A bee has never stung me, wasps seem to love me (have never stung me, either): they tend to land on my arm and walk around, sniffing. This happened even when I was a kid and wasn't wearing any perfume, so I have learned to petrify into a salt statue whenever approached by insects that might sting - I've had plenty of practice!
