Can someone give me a definition of this? I'm hearing this term increasingly of late. The only frame of reference I can specifically recall is something said here about 'foo foo' drinks at Starbucks....but last night my Nursing Instructor started used it in reference to a student nurse wearing some strong perfume around patients and causing an asthma attack(perfume isn't my gig anyway, if you know what I mean ). From the best I can tell, it either means 'yuppy', 'prissy', 'uppity' or something else similar to that.

PS - nurse said something like 'she came in with some of that 'foo foo' perfume
