Products, I should say.... or people, really.
Like, I can't handle it if a woman is wearing perfume. Not a fan of a guy with a lot of cologne either, although it's somewhat easier to handle than perfume.
But scented household products? Not my thing.
Like, my laundry detergent? Has to be unscented. Why would I want my laundry to smell like something? I'm washing it.
Scents just smell overwhelming to me. And annoying.
I bought some Swiffer refills the other day, opened up the box and WHIFF. I hadn't noticed I'd accidentally picked up a box of something or other orange scented Swiffer things. WHY? I JUST WANT MY FLOOR TO BE CLEAN! CLEAN DOESN'T HAVE A SMELL!
Now, that's not to say I like everything to be unscented.
I discovered this when my brother told me about an unscented shampoo and conditioner he loves. He got me a mini bottle of each and... it's weird.
I can't get over my shampoo not having a nice, mild, fruity scent to it. (I don't like the brand name stinky ones, but go for more natural ones, or AG or other "salon" type ones.) I don't mind a bit of a smell to my hair products because I expect it. And they're not overwhelming to me, probably because I choose the scent. (I did have a counsellor once who was extremely scent sensitive and some shampoos she just couldn't be around the person for the session.)
So yeah... I don't like household products with scent. It weirds me out and my nose doesn't like it. It annoys me. Because now I just smell chemical smells... I just want my laundry and my bathroom to be clean. Not "seabreeze" scentedly clean.
