There is an easy answer to this whole problem, and that would be for Julia to tell the lady that she's allergic to perfume, and for the lady to really tone down her floral fragrance, or just stop wearing it.
It's been three years since I first posted this Simple Suggestion, but it's worth revisiting. We never know when we will run into someone with fragrance allergies, but the best random act of kindness we can perform for them (without them even realizing it!) is to go fragrance-free. Think of it as an easy and inexpensive act of love.
In case you're interested, here's my original, much more detailed post: Simple Suggestion #154... Go fragrance-free (March 2013)
