Frequently Asked Questions

Q. 1. What is the policy at the Catholic Church regarding the wearing of perfumes / scents?

A. 1. The Catholic Church does not have a written policy regarding the wearing of perfumes or scents. It is a common courtesy not to wear perfumes / scents in enclosed crowded areas because of the possibility that someone present may be allergic to these odours and consequently have a negative medical reaction that would require hospitalisation and/or departure from the area.

A fragrance allergic reaction can range from sneezing, a runny nose, and watery eyes; to headaches, inability to concentrate, and dizziness; to respiratory issues, such as breathing difficulties and wheezing; to skin reactions, such as itching, hives, and other rashes. None of these sudden assaults on a person are pleasant, especially in a place of worship where you would expect members of the congregation to show concern for the well-being of his brothers or sisters in Christ.

Please share this information with everyone in your Parish / Church to ensure that your place of worship is fragrance free.
