    Why is fragrance is part of so many products when the chemicals used are usually toxic?

    Cosmetics, household cleaning products, medicines, candles, soaps, laundry aids, sanitary/personal products for children and adults and many other items not specifically labeled as fragrance are laden with chemical fragrances. The reactions and problems that they cause are real. Do you seek fragrance free and/or chemical free options?

    I prefer fragrance-free products as there are many toxic ingredients in the chemicals used to manufacture the fragrance; and, they can mask other odours we may need to smell.  However, I doubt that fragrances will ever disappear from manufactured products as the smell of the product is crucial in the sale of said product.  People can be literally led by the nose when buying cleaning supplies, etc.  If it smells good, it must be good.
