Mass. College Considers Banning Perfume, Cologne on Campus

Earlier this month we told you about a Nevada bill that would ban air fresheners and fragrances in public places. Well, it seems Nevada isn’t the only state that’s flipping out over fragrance. Now, a college in Massachusetts — Framingham State University — is mulling a ban on perfume and cologne (and fragrances in general) on campus:

From WFXT:

Human resources director Rita Colucci tells Fox25 she considered the ban after hearing complaints from several faculty members. They told her that chemicals found in fragrances, cleaners and disinfectants can cause health problems, particularly with people who have asthma.

Colucci admits enforcing such a ban would be tough. A meeting will be held on campus next Wednesday to further the discussion.
