After a woman asked a fellow employee to stop wearing strong perfume and dis not get a quick enough solution she sued. She won some money about a $100k,but now insome Gov't buildings employees can NOT even wear strong deoderant :thumbsup: ..

Some Detroit workers will be forbidden from wearing scented products following a landmark court decision that sided with a woman who said her coworker's scents hindered her breathing, myfoxdetroit.com reported Tuesday.

Employees in three of the Motor City's government buildings will be subject to the ban which includes strong perfumes, colognes, creams and deodorants.

When working in an office environment, personal Hygiene is very important.

Deodorants are a natural necessity,when in constant contact with fellow workers.

Buy Deodorants, that don't emit strong scents.

I find some one breathing in your face,that has been eating Garlic,very offensive. :thumbsup:

I was just in a taxi with a sweaty smelling driver and it was awful!!! I had the window down and couldnt wait to get out of that taxi. I prefer some bad smelling deoderant to the smell of sweat any day!

While smelling BO and sweat is unpleasant, so far as I know, it doesn't cause illness in another. In contrast, deodorants, perfumes etc. can. Coast deodorant soap is one that gives me terrible headaches and nausea. Some people with chemical sensitivities can become violently ill from the chemicals and scents in these products. Many detergents and fabric softeners cause problems as well. Some people reek of these products - and are probably unaware of it.

I eat lots of garlic. :thumbsup: Parsley is good at neutralizing bad breath.

Nibbling a cinnamon stick will help bad breath too.

I do not enjoy someone's perfume causing me a severe headache and nausea :thumbsup: Deodorants don't bother me. Besides, if my underarm deodorant is bothering you.. would you mind getting out of my bubble because you are standing WAY too close.

Coast deodorant soap affects me from 10 feet away. Some deodorants/anti-perspirants I smell from 5 feet away.
