what do you say to someone who wears to much cologne or perfume?

Where I work people come in an out all the time. Some of the Patrons who come in are wearing massive amounts of cologne or perfume. And it lingers soon after they leave the room.

These strong scents irritate my sinus and leave a burning sensation in the back of my throat.

What can I say or do in a nice way to let others know about my scent sensitivity?

    There is no nice way because people get offended when you tell them that to much prefume/cologne doesn't smell good. I would simply pull them to the side an example that their over use is burning your throat. Trust me I understand your pain.

    You could politely say you have a allergy sort of thing and you are very sensitive to perfume - im sure they'll understand
