Use fragrances in moderation on our campuses

University of Oulu encourage employees and students to use fragrances in moderation on campuses so that everyone can study and work in a pleasant environment.

For many people fragrances cause headaches and nausea. For example, perfumes and aftershaves as well as hair styling products can cause these symptoms. One in three of the Finns suffer from fragrance sensitivity.
