In brief: Perfume

Perfume and smoke and chemicals can cause severe irritation but not usually allergy.
Allergy is a reaction of the immune system to specific molecules like cedar tree pollen or cat dander or bermuda grass pollen, etc. Common allergens are - grass pollens, tree pollens, weed pollens, dust mite, cat and dog hair, molds.
