College in Minnesota Bans Pungent Perfumes


The University of Minnesota's School of Social Work said Wednesday that it has banned students and faculty from using perfumes, colognes, shampoos and other smell-good products that might trigger allergic reactions.

"Anything that is strongly scented" is not permitted, said Nancy Johnston, associate director of the graduate school. "We're trying to make people know there are products out there which are less strongly scented. The response has really been very good."
