Fragranced consumer products—such as cleaning supplies, air fresheners, and personal care products— emit numerous volatile organic compounds (VOCs), some classified as potentially hazardous. In addition, emissions from fragranced products can be a primary contributor to indoor and outdoor air pollutants, and human exposure risks. Further, exposure to volatile emissions from fragranced products has been associated with adverse human health effects in approximately one-third of Australians. However, fragranced products are exempt from full ingredient disclosure, thus limiting information and awareness about emissions. Moreover, relatively little prior research has analysed emissions from these..
