Is Fragrance/Perfume The New Second-Hand Smoke?

by Kelli Parisian February 25, 2019

are fragrances and perfumes the new second hand smoke, toxin, indoor air pollution
You walk into a store full of scented candles. They smell so fresh and lovely, but a few minutes later, your nose starts to itch and you start to get a headache.
A beautiful woman sits next to you in the movie theatre, but sadly her perfume arrived before she
did :-(
When people go to a public place, they are sharing what is now being called “secondhand fragrance”. This is the combination of harmful chemicals being released into the public air space from air fresheners, cleaning products, and scented candles, plus all the products people are wearing (from hair spray, shampoo, clothes, to perfume, etc).
Everyone is involuntarily breathing contaminated air even if they choose to not wear fragranced products.
What could be wrong with a beautiful fragrance/perfume? Nothing, if it is a genuine and authentic plant-derived, unadulterated essential oil. These oils have been effectively used for fragrance throughout history. However, since World War II, inexpensive, synthetic chemicals can produce fragrances that are abundantly available and can be toxic.
You may be desensitized to the fragrance/cologne you wear, but others aren't. Let's start a perfume free revolution!
The Environmental Protection Agency says indoor air pollution is real, partly because of fragrances, and that our homes and offices “can be more seriously polluted than the outdoor air in even the largest and most industrialized cities.”
Here at Parisian's Pure Indulgence, we take indoor air pollution seriously and will be phasing out all of our currently scented lotions and cremes in favor of scenting only with Essential Oils. This is how strongly we feel about eliminating fragrance oils. 
For example, our Sugared Butter Whip Body Polish is scented with 5-fold Citrus Essential Oil and remains the most popular product in our body care line. Essential oil scenting is best for you and our environment.
Are you bothered by perfumes/colognes others wear?

Extrinsic or External Factors - These include environmental, free radical sun damage, and stress.

See what people are saying!


My skin is glowing
It’s been almost two weeks since I started Retinol treatment. Wow, what a change, my skin is glowing! I’m noticing fine lines disappearing. I’m so impressed with all Parisians products but this is by far my favorite ~ Lynda F. CA

Great Product!
I have been using the Peptide Line Diminishing Eye Gel for several months now and have noticed that my eyes appear brighter and less “tired”. The puffiness is less and the skin under them is brighter. ~ Jeanne M. NC

Great for sore muscles/joints
Serenity Premium CBD Gel works for me! Highly recommend for relief from sore or strained muscles! I have an old ACL injury that acts up from time to time and this quiets the aches quickly. Smells nice without being too strong, too. ~ Connie M. HI

Platinum C gets a "A" from me!
I started using PPI's Platinum C about a year ago when I decided to dump the toxic department store brand from my beauty regimen.The Platinum C meets and exceeds my expectations and has kept my skin texture smooth, even and yes - YOUTHFUL!! The same type product in department stores would have cost me almost double what I pay for PPI. ~ Nicole R. CA
