Hand me a tissue
Try a light scent in spring, like CB I Hate Perfume's "to see a flower."
Once in a very blue moon I get someone who has very severe hayfever who tries my grass [fragrance] and sneezes. Theres zero pollen in it. So its just an [idea] that I sneeze when I smell this, so therefore I sneeze, says Christopher Brosius, owner of CB I Hate Perfume in Williamsburg.
Spring and summer allergies can also be set off by other scents so switch to something lighter in the warmer months.
