I Smell A…Well, Nothing At All, Actually
You may want to go easy on the Brut if you work in one of Portland's city offices. The city's Fox affiliate reports:
The Portland City Council approved a proposal Wednesday to make all city offices fragrance-free.The policy is designed to protect employees with health issues, such as asthma.
This means all workers will be asked to not wear cologne, perfume, aftershave or other scented products like hair sprays and lotion. Employees can now face disciplinary action for wearing too much scent.
For those who like to wear a scent—or even a mild-smelling hairspray—this really stinks. (Except, you know, not.)
