Allergic or irritant responses?

I have read in several sources that the fragrance in cosmetics are the
number one cause of allergic reactions to cosmetics and other products.
 Yet when the same fragrances cause an asthmatic reaction then it is
referred to as an irritant response rather than an allergic one.

Can someone please clarify this for me.
