Do You Avoid Wearing Fragrance to Avoid Offending Other People?

At Sugar HQ, we all love to sample scents, especially in and around the Bella corner. But out of courtesy to the entire office, we do our spritzing and sampling out of smelling range. I think we've all sat next to the lady on the train with the offensive perfume, or had to watch an entire movie with a headache thanks to I-bathed-in-cologne guy.

This morning, I reached for a certain scent in my vanity, only to be met with my internal voice telling me to hold it right there. Beauty, or perfume, in this case, is in the eye of the beholder, so my wonderfully earthy scent is another woman's stink-filled nightmare. Have you ever felt that you have had to avoid wearing fragrance to avoid offending other people — or do you spritz without hesitation?
