Perfume/cologne in restaurants?

ElsieB | Jun 14, 200908:25 AM     54

There used to be separate sections for smoking and non smoking tables in restaurants - a thing of the past now. But what about the people who like their 'scent' to cover a 3 yard radius?
We were in our favorite french restaurant for our anniversary dinner, everything was perfect for the first 2 courses then a couple was seated next to us and one of them had an overwhelming perfume smell - I was disgusted and could literally taste the nasty smell. My husband spoke with our waiter and even though they were very full and busy they moved us immediately. Anyone else had this happen? How can people be so clueless and inconsiderate?!
Disclaimer: I do hate all perfumes and colognes - what is being covered up?
