WASHINGTON, DC - Little old ladies may find fewer places to spread their aroma after EPA officials took actions to protect people from second-hand perfume. But some are saying the proposed ordinance does not go far enough.
The new law, if eventually approved, would ban second hand perfume in all outdoor public places, such as at bus stops and ATMs, as well as throughout all multi-unit rentals, including all balconies, porches, lanais and senior citizen centers.
"Little old ladies only bother me when I walk past and can smell the stench," said Philip DePew, a 31-year-old father of two. "I don't want to infringe on anyone's rights. But I also think little old ladies need to respect the health and rights of other people.
