The magazine 60 million consumers sought to know which perfumes could be placed at the foot of the tree without too much risk of allergies.
In its latest magazine devoted to the end of the year, the association 60 million consumers tried to find perfumes “not too heavy in sensitizing agents, mutagens and endocrine disruptors.” In short, perfumes that smell good, certainly, but especially that can be worn by people with allergies and environmental hypersensitive.

About sixty allergens have been measured and the average number of allergens is 22 per toilet or eau de parfum. The two most present being linalool and limonene. “These allergens are not dangerous but can sensitize (make allergic) or cause allergies in people already sensitized” insists 60 million consumers who has awarded his best ratings to Coco Mademoiselle Chanel (which gets 13.5 / 20) and Wild of Dior (14/20).
But since you choose a fragrance first and foremost for its fragrance and that awareness is mainly through contact, avoid perfume directly on the skin and perfume rather your clothes.
