  • Comments

    Exposure to perfume occurs not only because of perfume the person uses themselves, but also those used by other people, and encountered in shops and household products.

    It is easy to think of perfumes as only being used in perfumes, air fresheners and similar products, but perfumes (often a mixture of many different synthetic products) are added to a whole range of products:
    cosmetics, personal care products, detergents and household cleaning agents, etc.

    The finished product will not necessarily have a strong smell, because the perfume may have been added to disguise the unpleasant smell of active ingredients, e.g. in hair dyes.  

    Perfume mixes added to products are listed in the ingredients as ‘parfum’ or ‘fragrance’. The exact composition of these may vary over time even for the same product, as the manufacturer adjust the fragrance mix in relation to variations in the smell of the raw ingredients.

    Many chemicals used as fragrances are also used as flavourings in food, drink and medicines. 95% of chemicals used in fragrances are synthetic compounds derived from petroleum.
