    There are several possible reasons. 1. They're very insecure about the way they smell and go overboard. 2. They have nasal congestion or other issues that inhibit their ability to smell. You see this with people who smoke adding a lot of hot sauce or salt to things because they can't taste very well. 3. They get used to the smell having been around it (when they're wearing it) and, thinking it has faded, they put more on. 4. Nobody has told them that they are wearing way too much. They realize it is strong by them, but they may not realize how far and how strongly it radiates. 5. They might not actually be wearing so much. Based on a person's skin type (oily, dry, etc), body temperature, and body chemistry, the scent may last longer and be very strong even if they don't put much on. This reason in combination with the rest of the reasons would explain a lot.

    I don't personally know their name(s), but when I get into an elevator, oh, boy does it smell so HEAVY with fragrances of all kinds that I can't distinguish what they are! I don't think it's necessary to douse yourself in perfumes or colognes that heavily! I don't go out much, but when I did, I LOVED and still do-"Safari"-by Ralph Lauren, My husband went "nuts" over the fragrance!

    My close friends Do Not wear perfumes or colognes as I am very sensitive..I use a lotion that has the scent of oranges and an Unscented hair spray..

    When I'm out in public and someone is wearing an awful perfume I get an instant migraine and stomach pains..

    I used to encounter that problem at work on occasion. That was the worst, because it was an office, so you couldn't just walk away.

    Yes. I'm pretty sure it's because they don't bathe or wash their clothes.

    BQ: I sometimes use Ralph by Ralph Lauren. But only a smidgen.
