I never thought of pennies, I don't like that smell either,it reminds me of how blood smells. Yuck!

Oh yeah, laundry stuff smells so strong. I can't stand to walk down that isle in the grocery store. I do use regular tide though, it doesn't bother me at all. Go figure.

I LOVE the laundry soap aisle. Mmmmmmm it smells so good! I will go out of my way just to walk down that aisle and inhale deeply.

I've never had a problem dealing with odors like some of you mentioned. Except some cleaning products but my sister has same issues you all describe - --- due to sinus problems I think it is. I really LOVED my Yankee Candles and Bath & Body Works items. It was a tradition for us girls as far as gifts. But I had to get rid of all mine, and if I apply my perfume has to be once I leave home -- because it really bothers Sammie. I miss them all.
But as far as pet products, Sammie is allergic to grains, scented shampoo, the "stupid" medicated shampoo my old Vet sold me, FPlus topical meds, grass, pollen, and who knows what else. He would sneezes and itches. What works good for him is a puppy shampoo called (TROPICLEAN) tearless. Nothing seems to bother Miss penny - yet. I've learned never say never with a Maltese, tomorrows a new day.

One of the things I really like the smell of is just about all the Pure Paws grooming products. Unfortunately, they make the dogs itchy, so I can't use them. But they smell great.

I love the smell of Bath & Body Works stuff, but I'm really allergic to it, and if I wear it, by the end of the day I'm wheezing like I have some kind of asthma. Same with Jergen's Cherry Almond. I LOVE that smell, but it doesn't love me back.

I can't stand scented products of any type!!! Since I have horrible allergies, I have a negative association with anything with a scent (except food!). I buy unscented soap, shampoo (Nature's Miracle for Zooey), laundry detergent, and never use candle or sprays or anything. Many women with endometriosis have compromised immune systems that can't handle the toxin overload, as Tori mentioned about so many conditions. I've been working on eating a diet to support my immune system in hopes that my allergies will improve, but so far, no improvement
