Farrow and Ball gloss?

Wondering how good/bad this is? I cannot use normal gloss paint as the smell makes me ill for days and gives me awful migraines. I have tried low odour gloss from dulux but despite having only painted doors 2 or 3 months ago, the woodwork is already turning yellow.

Can anyone advise on a)whether you have found it turns yellow and b)how smelly it is!

Use water based eggshell.

Agree. Have not used gloss for years. F and B do full range of colours in interior and exterior eggshell. They do not go yellow. (Unless they start off as yellow.....)

Btw water based not as hard wearing as oil based though. Worth bearing on mind.

Thanks, I will give the eggshell a go. Not as bothered about it being a bit less hard wearing if it stays the same bloody colour that I painted it!
