When I was pregnant my husband bought me a bunch of flowers with lillies in. After a while the smell made me feel so sick he had to take them out. Ever since I haven't been able to stand the smell.
Jengil - I sympathise, though for me it wasn't a plant smell but a perfume: Poison. It was so heavy and sickly that I had to ask a member of staff not to wear it because it affected me so badly. And I can't stand it to this day. (fortunately, it's not particularly popular, I think. A bit like Brut aftershave - yuk!)
Sorry - drifted away from plant smells. But I can remember only too well that perfume smell nearly a quarter of a century ago!!!!
thank you daisybird. that has really helped, shall be taking the box back only had it for two wks. and yes i realised what you meant ice/die . how can it be treated if its caught early?
