Smilla's Sense of Snark (

It might be an interesting experiment to get a little jar of some unscented body lotion/cream, and then spritz it heavily outside with some of the straight perfume and stir it all in. Let it sit for a day or two to let the more volatile top notes and carrier alcohol evaporate a bit, then try it out and see if the scent is mellowed any and/or it's less headache-producing than using the spray directly.
(And yeah, ylang-ylang is the only obvious culprit for a floraly smell there; it's a sweet tropical "white floral" sort of smell, a little bit like jasmine or gardenia.)
