Today, I started my new job at a fragrance store. While training, the manager had me smell all of the scents to become familiar with the products. Before my shift was over, I'd had three asthma attacks. FML

Unless you're suicidal, this isn't the job for you. I think you'd be better off working on a farm, with the nearest pharmacy miles away. But then again, Monk was a fantastic cop, so...

Just keep an inhaler handy.

Fragrance stores usually have a lot of different perfumes, so I'm not surprised anyone wouldn't get sick after all those strong smells. Sorry OP, get a new job so your health won't be compromised.

Actually, farms aren't the best place for asthmatics either. Trust me. :P

I'm sure OP had an inhaler to be able to stop the three attacks that s/he had. It'd be a good idea to quit, though...

Why put your hypersensitive lungs at risk? You are asking for it.. But if you have an Asthma preventer such as : Symbicort or Seretide - I would advise using them, it helped me out a great deal to where I could do running and sports without wheezing.
