Chanel No. 5 Could Be Banned Despite Brad Pitt’s Outstanding Performance

This 02 May 2005 file photo shows four bottles of Chanel No. 5 perfume by Gabrielle Chanel from 1921, and a Chanel No. 5 necklace (R, rear) during a press preview of "Chanel", an exhibition of the history of the fashion House of Chanel at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. The US Congress reviewed testimony 27 July 2006 in Washington on whether to issue intellectual property rights to fashion houses and their creations.

An "EU advisory committee" compiled a list of 100 allergens found in scents that "put EU citizens at risk" (because of ... their elitist European noses), and the group wants to ban tree moss, found in Chanel No. 5 and Dior's Miss Dior. Dissenter Sylvie Jourdet, from the French perfumer's society, told the Telegraph: "Chanel No. 5 has never done any harm to anyone ... It is the death of perfume if this [proposed ban] continues. The more you use natural ingredients, the more there is a risk of allergies. Lemon, jasmine, bergamot all contain allergenics." It's like when that one kid at school can't eat peanuts, so no one in a fifteen-mile radius can eat PB&J. This is exactly like that.
