Should women be allowed to wear perfume in the work place?

If it is or is not acceptable to wear perfume in a work setting has been a long going thing and people have mixed opinions on it. Every workplace has different policies with fragrance, a most common example being office jobs. A lot of women have office jobs compared to 50 years ago. Some people say women should only be allowed to wear light fragrances, others say it shouldn’t be an issue at all. Now this rule does not just apply to women who work in an office environment, it can go for women in warehouses or women who work as baristas. Multiple women who have been in different workplaces have come out saying they were not allowed to wear perfume, while they were working. Some even said they were fired because of the fragrance they were wearing. Some women have also quit their jobs because they couldn’t wear perfume, they see perfume as a form of self care and something that makes them feel good or pretty and they quit because they couldn’t wear it.
