Halithosis: Can be due to bacteria on tongue, dental/ peridontal disease, sinus infections, esophaglea or stomach issues as well as tonsiliths( tonsil stones) rarely DM, liver failure cancer. Smoking ,alcohol, fish garlic exacerbate it. Brush tongue when brushing,floss, gargle, try Zyrtec/abx for nasal d/c/ sinusitis. BANA test ,b galcotsidase test for enzymes correlated with halitosis.

Possibly HALITOSIS: most of the time someone ; like- girlfriend, boyfriend, co-worker, mom, etc will tell you "the truth about your breath" or they will offer you chewing gum... Then you probably have a condition called Halitosis or this condition is also known as Bad Breath. if after you chew gum for 10 minutes - nobody is complainingon your breath-you are lucky! because your Halitosis can be eliminated 100%!

Breathing odors : Incense is a common part of many life experiences. It is not dangerous in almost all instances unless you have reactive airways and go into an asthma attack or bronchospasm when you inhale these strong odors.

Breathing a freon leak is it bad for you and was not told to leave the building for 30 min.It was like a cloud in the building?

Sorry it happened: You should be fine, though. The stuff is famously non-reactive and the major danger in a leak like this is that it would displace oxygen. It's also a popular recreational inhalant especially among young people, who seem to tolerate it well -- not that it's a good idea. I'm really glad it wasn't something worse.

Asthma: I see that you once used an inhaler, and the fact that strong smells now trigger you suggests to me that your asthma has returned. Please get with a pulmonologist. Sometimes a tiny dose of daily inhaled glucocorticoid can keep this at bay.
