Perfume
Remedy a Fragrance Overload
When you've indulged in too much of a good thing, here's a quick fix: Moisten a cotton ball with rubbing alcohol and wipe the skin where you overspritzed. Alcohol dissolves the oils that release perfume's scent on your skin; the cotton ball gently exfoliates the skin's surface, which also helps to remove the fragrance, says Alan Hirsch, MD, director of the Smell & Taste Treatment and Research Foundation in Chicago.
