    Most perfumes are not made from natural ingredients, but rather complex chemical formulas to regulate, preserve, and prolong the fragrances. Take a look at the first link below for specific information on various chemicals such as benzyl alchohol, ethanol, and linalool, as well as other ingredients used in perfume. Some ingredients are known to irritate sensitive skin or to cause delayed skin reactions over time, and some may even pose a hazard to respiratory health. While not all perfumes are harmful, it is important to understand what goes in them so that you know what to avoid should you choose to shop for a new fragrance.
