A Perfume is an alcoholic solution of aromatic compounds, that is, blends of fragrant materials. The fragrant material may be of plant, animal or synthetic origin. These materials, extracted from plants are called essential oils and generally have a characteristic pleasant smell.

These essential oils contain several groups of compounds such as terpenes, aldehydes, ketones, alcohol, and ethers etc. To produce odorous compounds with smells not found in nature, many chemicals are synthesized from compounds

 obtained from petroleum distillates, pine resins or cheap organic feedstock. Then fixative is added, which sustain equal evaporation rate for all components.

Another important ingredient of perfumes is the solvent which is ethanal or ethanol and water. Solvent is required for dilution because highly concentrated oils contain volatile compounds that may be too concentrated for people with allergies. We perceive the smell of perfumes because of volatile odoriferous components (VOC’s) present in them.

Since a good perfume invariably lasts for 6-8 hours, this odorous molecule persists in the air for a much longer duration than we can ever imagine! Due to this, there is overexposure to skin, upper airways and lungs and from the olfactory pathways to the brain. Once VOC’s enter the body, they affect the organ or system. Phthalate is also used in perfumes, hair sprays, deodorants, nail polishes etc, which damages the lungs, liver, kidneys and harms the developing testes of offerings.

Limonene on oxidation, forms a products, that sensitizes both lungs can damage bone narrow, causing low blood cell count and damage to liver and kidneys.

Use of large number of scents may lead to a higher degree of indoor and outdoor air pollution. It creates a smoke of VOC’s in the air. Once in the air, VOC’s can mix with other pollutants and may form substances that are even more irritating or more toxic than the original substance. Some of the chemicals used in fragrances may react with oxygen in air to peroxides, which may generate harmful free radicals.

The poor air quality further contributes to several health problems including headache, dizziness, fatigue and forgetfulness. To freshen up this stale air, freshening the air.
