How To Remove Fragrance Odors — 8 Comments

  1. I had this problem once before, when I wore the first perfume I received from my boyfriend. The scent was awful, for me. But I had to wear it because he would notice otherwise. And the scent stayed on for such a long period of time. Thanks for sharing this product!

  2. Yes,

    This problem is becoming more and more common. More women need to know about the toxicity in perfumes – and that they can wear pure essential oils instead!

  3. MEN are now worse than the ladies. BRUTE-BARF smells fill the aisles from church to Wal-Mart! These guys bathe in any stink they can buy and the mix of them all is simply vomit-inducing!

    I am a recluse – an anti-social perfume-cologne-stink hating MAN who wishes this world could remove every MAN or WOMAN from the, “I have to wear it so I am attractive” crowd!


  4. Yes, you’re right, men are often worse than women! And it IS vomit-inducing!

    So, any men reading this who think that the more Brut, the better, beware – you are actually repelling exactly who you want to attract.

  5. It’s about time, but finally the CDC has actually published guidance on this insidious stuff.. so please get these toxic chemicals out of our schools and workplaces NOW!..

    “”In addition, CDC encourages employees to be as fragrance-free as possible when they arrive in the workplace. Fragrance is not appropriate for a professional work environment, and the use of some products with fragrance may be detrimental to the health of workers with chemical sensitivities,allergies, asthma and chronic heaadaches/migraines. Employees should avoid using scented detergents and fabric softeners on clothes worn to the office. Many fragrance-free personal care and laundry products are easily available and provide safer alternatives.”

  6. Jim,

    Wow, finally they are at least acknowledging that fragrance “may be detrimental to the health of workers with chemical sensitivities, allergies, asthma and chronic headaches/migraines.”

    That’s definitely a step in the right direction. Unfortunately, unless the CDC strictly enforces this, most people won’t pay attention! I find that even among people who otherwise eat organic and try to avoid chemicals, there are far too many that are “addicted” to scented detergents and fabric softener dryers sheets and can’t give them up!

  7. I am senetive to ALL smells-including essential oils-which to me can sometimes create a worse reaction to my allergies then perfume! I hate those just as much and wish people would keep them home, not in public! I’m reading now how to remove essential oils from my clothes, fabrics and home because someone gave me gifts with the smell on them! Wish we could all be scent free!

  8. Sheri,

    I’m not surprised you are allergic to essential oils and that they can give you worse reactions than perfume. Many essential oils are not essential oils at all but simply a bottle of chemicals combined to resemble a real oil. They are pure chemicals created in a lab and they are loaded with synthetic chemicals and artificial fragrances. See The Therapeutic Grade Essential Oil Difference for more information.

    My body has a near instant negative reaction to these kinds of oils, whereas it finds high-quality oils very beneficial. But some people actually like these types of oils because their body is addicted to chemicals.

    Some people have reactions to high-quality oils at first. That is usually because the receptors in their brain are plugged up with environmental or other toxins. High-quality oils cause the toxins to melt, causing discomfort. That usually goes away after a while.

    We have receptor cells throughout our body that wait for the right nourishment to come in. Molecules mimicking the ones our body is waiting for can fill up the receptor cells, not leaving room for the correct nourishment.
