The man's cologne was far more cloying than he intended, leaving a trail of gagging people behind him.

Ugh... I hate it when people bathe in cologne or perfume :puke:  I have to hold my breath if I walk through the perfume section in the store.  

When I hear this word, I always think of sweets.  My taste for sweet has changed drastically since I started eating low carb.  I find most baked goods or flavored drinks cloyingly sweet now, whether they're regular or sugar-free.
