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.
