Welcome to ScentSense – a website for anyone who wants to find out about fragrances and perfumes.

Fragrances and perfumes used to be made from rose petals and other natural ingredients. These days they’re nearly all 100% artificial. You won’t find most of those synthetic ingredients listed on any label, only the word “fragrance” or “parfum”.

What are these laboratory-made ingredients, and has anyone done tests on them? Could they be bad for our health?

Many of us use fragranced products - cosmetics, hair products, clothes detergent - every day of the year, up close and personal next to our skins. It makes sense to find out what’s in all those nice smells.

There’s plenty of information on the web about fragrance because a lot of people are concerned about its health effects. Many of those sites, unfortunately, make unsubstantiated claims. This website has been created to be a one-stop shop for properly researched and referenced information, presented without bias, so you can make up your own mind.

Use the menu on the left to find out some of the facts behind fragrance.
