I don’t use perfume but I’m a sucker for scented products. Sniffing is probably one of the first things I do when testing a product. Those that smells good usually get my attention. But fragrance in a product isn’t always good news especially if they’re of synthetic formulations.
According to Safecosmetics.org, synthetic fragrances can contain chemical compounds with harmful ingredients such as neurotoxins, allergens and phthalates, which have been linked to reproductive problems, early puberty in girls, and breast cancer. This is why fragrance is always single out as a major culprit when a product is considered as unsafe and is always listed as an ingredient to avoid if possible.
