Scent wearers and the scent sensitive: what's the balance?

Last night at a social event, a person seated at my table had to leave because my scent was bothering her. Her eyes were tearing and she was obviously uncomfortable. Am I doing it wrong?

Does this mean I was wearing too much? I have been experimenting with scent recently, and I thought I was using it judiciously on my wrists and behind my ears. I know some folks are sensitive, and I want to be sensitive to them. And ZOMG, this incident was so embarrassing that I fear I may never be able to wear scent in public again. What is the right balance? Input from the scent sensitive as well as from scent wearers is welcome.
