Some sort of flower, presumably? Rosewater? Lilac? Men's colognes tend to be more about woods and spices. Both men's and women's have citrus and celine sale musk in common, so it's probably neither of those.
Start asking women what that perfume is. without making it sound like a complaint. Then keep 38364113 nike shoes air max a list of which ones bother you and which do not. In a couple of weeks, you'll have enough data to be able to cross-reference and find mulberry uk out which ingredient is your own personal kryptonite.
There is no difference between men and women's colognes than there is between one man's cologne and another's or vice versa - which is celine online to say, the differences are not gender-aligned. Perfume isabel marant wedge sneakers doesn't know its a gender, it's marketers that take care of that.
I would suggest the difference is that some women put on a shitload more perfume than the relatively few men who wear cologne, thus there is simply more perfume around some women, than most men.

No difference is going a bit far. There are musky-fruity fragrances that are unisex, isabel marant online capitalized by CKOne and some others, but when it comes to flowery stuff, it's buy isabel marant online pretty much all a woman's world.
(In other words, as a man in a suit I might be able to get away with a little vanilla and orange, but I will get some pretty odd looks if I turn up at work wearing Chanel No. 5 or Poison. Or at least some leading questions about how I spent my evening.)
So perhaps reread the question as "what ingredients are more likely to be in women's fragrances if necessary?

I've noticed the same thing as the OP. I have asthma, and almost all good brands of women's perfume sets me off. Yet very few men's cologne's do, and I can also wear many kinds of essential oils without issue. I have often wondered if there is some ingredient that is used in most women's fragrance that is not generally used 90257542 new nike shoes 2010 in men's. Hope someone has an answer.

I am a person who is sensitive to isabel marant online certain chemicals and unable to mulberry outlet uk wear or be around spray perfumes and 79028532 nike air max tailwind 2010 colognes, both women's and men's. I am neither a perfumer not a doctor (IANAPOAD!), shop isabel marant but I think mulberry sale it has less to do with a botanical fragrance and more to do with one or more chemical additive(s). Many perfumes trigger migraines for me, so I'm familiar with the blistering headaches you speak of.
I can't speak to whether it's a chemical that is predominately used in women's fragrances, but for me, the issue is that these fragrances contain synthetic compounds derived from petroleum, which I and many other chemically-sensitive people have strong reactions to.
(Sorry, that article doesn't really cite evidence; I'm still looking for a better source 48459919 new nike air max or two.)

It has to do with the specific ingredients in the fragrance. While I don't think preservatives vary greatly between women's and men's colognes, the actual notes which create the fragrance do. My guess is you are reacting to a common theme in women's perfumes, such as florals, which you are less likely to find in spicier men's colognes. I agree that you need to find out specifically which fragrances you are reacting to, and go from there. My guess is that you will discover something like perfumes with floral notes versus citrus or spicy notes are an irritant.

I'm not sure that it's gender specific, but I've noticed the same - women's perfumes make my eyes water, give me a headache, and make it hard to breathe, whereas men's scents rarely do. I have the same allergic reaction to formaldehyde/formalin, which I'm told is an ingredient in most scents. Perhaps men's scents contain less? Just a wild guess.

Yes, it seems to be the florals and not the musks, like chez shoes says.

Good news! Apparently Bonnie Hunt has extreme sensitivity too and talks about it on her show. So my co-worker was very understanding, and I'm not viewed as crazy or difficult.
