    Default Everything horribly sweet aroma

    I really hope someone can give hope: every single non food latino product that I buy here has a sickening perfume (not good). Tissues, paper towels, toilet paper, something my mechanic stuck in my car which now smells like a fkn bathroom deodorizer. Bought boxes of tissues, Kleenex at Nacional. Thought wrongly they might have been regular like in the US. Of course I should have known better even looking at bottom of box which said KleenexLatin America, or something like that. Went to use it after a sneeze and thought I’d barf from that awful smell. I went to farmacia and thought I would try there.. they showed me tissues stating “sin aroma”. No
    No. Can someone give answer other than needing to bring Everything with me from home? Charmin toilet paper only product I have seen with no aroma. How the hell can you use these products with a cold or if you are easily nauseated. Unless dominicans have built in anti aroma gene. My car is unbearable to be in because of the smell, you know like being in a livery car in Us where I always assumed it was to cover smell of weed. So does anyone recommend products with no smell that is available?

    Six weeks into my first visit to DR, I am puzzled by this question! I have seen reference elsewhere to perfumed bathroom tissue and assumed we had just "lucked out" because the Lider brand we purchased at the Jumbo has no fragrance. Also the little packs of Kleenex brand "original" tissues, manufactured in Colombia by Kimberly-Clark are not perfumed.

    Beginner's luck??!

    Most Dominican bathrooms, be them in a
    residence or commercial establishment, do
    not want you flushing paper products. They
    are almost always tossed in a can sitting next
    to the toilet. My opinion, explains why so many
    are scented as I do not want smell your sh*t anymore
    than you want to smell mine.

    That's the only brand we use, beats others in price and quality. And definitely not perfumed. We used Scott before POP had Jumbo, but Scott is almost double the price...

    Yes, I apologize but I don’t get the joke. (If it is a joke) and I do live DR most of year. Why? I don’t have my answer tsk tsk. Is there no answer to my query?
