    The only time I had a headache that I related to perfume was when I tried Black Orchid.

    The only two scents this has happened with are both by our darling Serge Lutens;

    Datura Noir

    Fleur d'Oranger


    The Datura Noir was sad because I really liked it. Unfortunately it was the one that gave me a worse reaction; desperate headache, nausea, cloudy vision. The FdO just made me super queasy, then naseaus.

    Escape for men - some note in this scent really hits me between the eyes.

    For women it is Red Door and EL's Spellbound those two can totally ruin my day or night.

    Versace Dreamer!!! I don't know if it's the gin-and-tonic note but I get a little migraine on the left side of my head whenever I wear this. Sometimes I even see stars... er.... ok.... I make the last part up. lol.

    I don't get migraines, but Mugler Cologne gives me an instant, splitting headache.

    Well, I didn't mean you'd definitely get a migraine, just that it felt like you would if you had to keep smelling it (rather than washing it off or getting away from a smelling strip, for instance).

    You're right, though: I am guilty of hyperbole. No frag, however vile, has ever succeeded in giving me an actual migraine. Those happy occasions come and go randomly.
    The ones I mentioned, have, however, given me splitting headaches that lasted well beyond my removal from their immediate vicinity. So in that respect there's no hyperbole, I'm sorry to say. The experience has made me avoid all perfume in the past, even - and it's why I still get highly annoyed with fellow 'Noters proudly proclaiming they'll just wear some more if they receive complaints about their nuclear sillage. Yah, it's so cute to cause others pain, especially those who have no choice but to be in your vicinity.
    It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely products of a deranged imagination.

    Nothing, thank the perfumed pagan pantheon, has give me a bygod migraine. I'm afraid that if I got actual migraines from frags I might have to stop wearing them. Classic migraine, with the flashing shapes, phantom numbness, nausea, three hours of skull-against-windshield pain, and the long washed-up-on-the-beach hangover with the weird exhausted quasi-amnesiac quality? They're really cool neurologically but they figure prominently in my own definition of unfun. Now if I could think of one as a personal message from God or from Jean Claude Ellena...still no.
    But Terre d'Hermes has given me a regular old secular civilian headache. And I find the headache thing interesting. The few times I've gotten one from fragrance has been, I think, not a response to chemicals (because I've subsequently worn each one with no fallout) but a response to feeling claustrophobic. A sort of o-ye-fates-what-have-i-sprayed-my-personal-chest-with? helpless fist-shaking, claustrophobic response to the loss of olfactory control. As if having suffered myself to be strapped to the Inexorable Rollercoaster of Smell I look back with panicked longing at those who, sweating profusely and squelching along on a carpet of evaporated cola syrup, are looking up at me from the jungle floor of the amusement park, imagining that I am fortunate. And my agonized waves will be misinterpreted, anyway, so why bother? It's a headache in response to the logical conundrum of not being able to retract some indelible lapse of judgment. But it's better than a migraine.
    Who has already guessed that I just drank a bunch of coffee?

    Pour homme:
    Tag bodyspray (cheaper than Axe, figuratively and literally)
    Emporio Armani Diamonds for Men (not a guy's best friend, either)
    Daddy Yankee (overpowering synthetic junk)
    Cool Water (anyone want my bottle?)
    CK One (the nostril-scorcher)

    Pour femme:
    Estee Lauder Beautiful (NOT!)
    Ralph Lauren Romance Always Yours (chemical mess)
    Calvin Klein Obsession (ugh)
    Marilyn Miglin Pheromone (hard to believe that this was once the world's costliest perfume)
    Elizabeth Taylor White Diamonds (the fragrance nightmares are made of)

    That 'Miglin Pheremone' "costliest perfume" is the silliest ad slogan. 'Joy' , JAR Perfumes, etc, dozens make that claim. You know it's cheap junk (or at least over-priced) when those phrases are in play. A sure sign you are being talked into something.
