I got some Genoma samples.  I have on the day cream, and it is so scented, that it almost makes me feel weak.  I'm going to have to wash it off, as I just can't tolerate it.

I haven't done well with scented products ever since my 20's after I took a round of flagyl. Prior to that, I always wore perfume and was fine with it.

I wonder if Dr. D might consider making these products unscented, or with barely a trace of scent?

Is there anyone else who has had this same sensitivity to the the odor of the Genoma products?  

Is there someone who might be able to take this feedback to Dr. D?

I thought the fragrance was quite mild.  There are no artificial fragrances in his products, so it shouldn't be that strong.  Perhaps you got a sample that has been sitting a little while?

I'm very sensitive to fragrances, but the Genoma line does not bother me in any way. I love the creams and the effects on my skin.

I haven't tried the night cream yet.  The eye cream is fine, but the day cream, I find to be super strongly scented.

I thought that the products were supposed to be well-tolerated by all.  The cream doesn't make me break out or anything like an allergic reaction.  It's just the scent that made me feel weak.  Is that an allergic reaction?

I told her this was her lucky month!!!

I would think that there are others here who are sensitive to fragrances....

In my naturopath's office, there's a sign that says, "Please refrain from wearing fragrances in consideration of our chemically sensitive patients."

Either the sample you got was more highly fragranced  than normal, you're more sensitive to the fragrance than most.

Did you end up washing off the cream after a few minutes, or were you able to leave it on? I'm wondering if the scent dissipates over time and stops bothering you.

I would imagine you would eventually get used to a smell (thinking of my expensive perfume I can no longer smell ) unless of course you were having an allergic reaction...which weakness etc sounds like...

Quoted from ruthiegirl
... you're more sensitive to the fragrance than most.

This must be it, and me too, I found the scent overpowering (not a sample). Plus I got a bit of a rash from it, so must be allergic to something in it. Now I'm using just plain ole grapeseed oil. Soaks in beautifully and leaves my skin feeling silky, not oily. And no fragrance!

I like the Genoma skin care line.  i don't have the eye cream, but the day cream, night cream and daily wash.  I find that they all have a nice light earthy scent to them and once I've finished using them...I don't really smell anything).  I love what line does for my skin and I don't even have to use much...one squirt each time.  Now, for the spray...I don't care for the smell of it.

I am very sensitive to smells and cannot wear or tolerate the smell of perfume. I was very pleased with the fresh light smell of the Genoma skin care line.

I don't think any one thing can ever be tolerated by all. If something bothers us, we need to find an alternative. I once bought a calendula oganic soap which caused extreme itching, yet others love it.

you are a very isolated case.....
cause I certainly am very sensitive to fragrances per se, and Genoma is totally
safe, .....
did you read the news letter?
Quoted Text
Say No to Fragrance – Artificial fragrances, which frequently contain phthalates, may trigger allergic reactions, irritation, and other health problems are often found in cosmetics and skin care products. Be mindful of the hidden dangers that “fragrance” or “parfum” listed on the ingredient labels can pose and choose fragrance free products.

I have used the sample pack and love it! I will buy some this month. I cannot smell anything with this product. It leaves my skin feeling naturally good. Again, individuality.

This is just another example of how we are all unique.  

I recall someone else not being able to tolerate only the toner.

As sensitive as I am to lots of things, Genoma I am fine with.

I recently ordered the Restorative Night Crème for my hands that have gobs of skin pealing off of them.  I'm planning on using it before bed.  I'm also planning on doing the 4 week Skin Protocol.  I'm sensitive to lotion with perfumes, I always use the fragrance free Curel.  So, now you got me worried.

There's no fragrance in any of the products. That's just the way the ingredients smell.

Thank you, Dr. D for your reply.  It's good to know that there is no added fragrance.  

I can tolerate natural scents, like flowers.  I had been using a face cream with lavender, and although there is a scent, it doesn't bother me at all.  

However, the Genoma cay and night creams bother me very much, to the point that I had to wash it off, because I was feeling weaker by the minute.  After I washed it off, I was fine.

Ruthiegirl, I left the day cream on for about an hour, and was beginning to feel worse, so I washed it off.

I sniffed the day cream and night cream today, to see if they were the same scent, (which they were) and just sniffing them made me feel weak.

I soooo wanted to use these products!  I am very disappointed that I can't tolerate them.  I can only use the eye cream, since there's hardly any scent to it.

Yay!!!  I put on the night cream around 6:00 after I took a shower.  I wanted to try it early, so that I wouldn't have to get up in the middle of the night to wash it off, in case it didn't agree with me.  

Pretty strong smelling!  I thought that I would persist and work through the initial feeling of the scent being over-powering.

Well....6 hours later, and I don't smell a thing now!!  Looks like I'll be able to use it!!  

I will try the same thing with the day cream tomorrow and see how that goes.  I really want to use these products after reading the rave reviews!

I too thought the scent was strong (though lovely) however, I found it fades quickly.  I love, love, love the day, night and eye cream.  My skin has never felt so good and my makeup always looks fresh on top of it. This is the best stuff I ever used.  I hope Narnia you do get to enjoy it...if not pass it on to someone else and go for the grapeseed oil.  Good luck.

I wonder...is it my imagination????

When I looked at my face in the mirror before going to bed, it seemed that my face looked smoother and tighter.....with only one application of night cream???  Is this possible????  

If so, it is just too good to be true!!!
