Question about perfume.

I'm sitting here at my sons Karate School waiting for my son. A women just walked in smelling like she bathed in coconut milk. I just about gagged on the smell.

My question is, can/do restaurants refuse women from entering, because they smell like someone poured a bottle of perfume over their heads? On several occasions, my family and I have been eating, and the waiter brings a couple to the table next to us and the smell is impossible. I put down my knife and fork and tell the waiter, " thats it, I lost my appetite. I can't stand the smell." And naturally, nothing is done about it. If thats the way they treat a customer, then they loose a tip.
What can be done about this? Complain to the management?
