Anyone get perfume allergies? I've just recently tried Le Labo's smoke-monster 'Patchouli 24' and have noticed that it gives me a near immediate headache followed by hives at the application site. This is a decanted fragrance and not from Le Labo. What I'd like to know is, is it common to have this kind of reaction to a fragrance? Is it possible that I got something from a 'bad batch'? Or am I allergic to birch tar or some other ingredient in the perfume itself? Anyone care to share their own experiences or hazard a guess?
Thanks in advance for any help...
