Perfume should be a gentle hint of fragrance that lingers behind you, not a cloud of scent that announces your arrival before you walk into the room. An overdose of perfume creates a negative image, even if you are otherwise well groomed. It can also cause allergic reactions like watering eyes, sneezing or congestion in sensitive people -- definitely not the effect you are looking for. Remember that less is more when spritzing on perfume, but if you've gone overboard, you can tone down the fragrance.
