A woman has initiated divorce proceedings after her husband failed to stop wearing an aftershave she disliked.

The 29-year-old Egyptian woman applied to end her five-year marriage at a Cairo court, stating the aftershave her husband wears was too strong and led to severe pain in her nose, as she suffers from acute sinusitis.

According to The New Arab, the woman asked her husband to stop using the aftershave. After he failed to acquiesce, she left him and filed for divorce.
