This is the original problem from an employee...
The lady at the cubicle next to me wears a hand cream with a really strong perfume to it. She puts it on all the time. Iím sure itís a really great product and everything, but I donít really like product smells and perfumes. I get headaches, and itís just plain unpleasant to me. I donít want to tell her that sheís stinky or anything, but I just canít keep working with such a strong smell in the air. Can anyone suggest a really tactful way for me to ask her to use an unscented product?

I had the same problem with a coworker in the cube next to me. Her perfumed hand cream was so strong that it made mey head hurt and my throat raw. One day I asked her what it was, and she informed me that it was a lotion used for dry hands. I told her it bothered me quite a bit and offered her an unscented hand cream in its place. She threw the scented one out and is now using the one I gave her which doesnt bother me in the least.
