I sympathize with you on the asthma thing. Both of my sons have asthma, though thankfully are seeming to grow out of it a bit as they get older. Those emergency room visits are not fun. I wish people would use more common sense and consideration when applying perfume, because even though I'm not asthmatic, they do give me headaches.
The problem with banning something like perfume is the enforcement. It's very easy to determine whether someone is smoking or not smoking. But how would you define "too much" perfume, and determine with certainty who is wearing it? There's also the issue of knowledge: smokers know with certainty that they are lighting up and causing the air to be polluted. Many perfume wearers seem unaware that they have over-doused themselves - perhaps because their sense of smell is deadened to it. I don't see any sensible way for government or business-owners to deal with over-dousing of perfume, aside from maybe appealing to a younger audience, since the older folks seem to be the ones most susceptible to over-dousing.
