Which perfumes give you this feeling / scent of suffocating and airless?

 

Powder plume perfumes will do this to me on a really bad day when I have had patchy sleep, heavy itchy eyes / foggy hay fever or gluggy humidity hangs in the air.

 

Some of my fluffy powder loves will turn to suffocating clouds like Soavissima by Profvmvm Roma, Teint de Neige by Lorenzo Villoresi, Classique by JPG.

 

Insolence by Guerlain and Love, Chloe have a sticky-sweet airless vibration for me.

 

 

 

Special thanks to Bergamot for her term "suffocating cloud" from the Screech thread.

I renamed Bvlgari Black "Bvlgari black hole" because it sucks all air out of a room.

I can't breath if someone's wearing it.

Same thing with Gaultier Le Male.

Chloe Narcisse. A thick, sluggish cloud that simply hovers and suffocates.

Note: I'm talking about one aspect here, difficulty of breathing.  Nothing to do with weather the perfume is good otherwise!

A waitress at a restaurant, last night.  Her scent overpowered even the spiciest dishes on the table.  She said it was a Victoria's Secret body spray, she must have been wearing the whole bottle.

I wake in the morning early and always, the very first thing, I poke out my head and I sit up in bed and I sing and I sing and I sing.

I literally had to escape a store once without completing my errand because an SA wore large quantities of Ysatis. I wasn't able to breathe.

I could even smell the perfume on me long after I left the store.

suck the air out of a room :

 

Angel

Fendi

Aromatics Elixir

Melograno

Well, the perfumes from Estee Lauder have a tendency to do that to me (however beautiful they may be), but apart from those, I find that any over applied fragrance can do it.

LV Teint de Neige. Only it wasn't me that was suffocated but my family. They all claim that even a few drops will fill the whole house and leave no oxygen to breath.  A bit of an exaggeration I'd say.

Ysatis is my answer. The last time I tested it, my then-roommate asked if I was okay. Apparently my eyes bugged out and I looked as if I was contemplating fleeing.

Any of the musk bombs will do it, like Teint de Neige, which I love but just gave to my mother and cautioned her to under-apply.

 

Other musk bombs, some of which I once enjoyed but now can't tolerate:

 

No. 5 Eau Premiere

Kenzo Flower Parfum (red bottle)

Blu Notte

Oscar

White Diamonds

 

And yes, any other scent that's strong.  Just can't do strong fragrance anymore.  A half squirt on my abdomen is usually enough these days.  Otherwise I start to feel claustrophobic.

Yep. That and EA Sunflowers were my first two negative scent memories.

White Diamonds for me.  There is not a "safe" amount.
