Great post! I have a little bird, and I always use fragrance and let it totally dry of the alcohol and powerful scent.
If I have to be near him, I wash my arms of any perfume. Ditto for home scent sprays. I only use scented candles in other rooms.
Thank you for thinking of our feathered family members. (We had a member who had a parrot, but I have not seen her in some time.)
