    What proportion of existing frags haven't required reformulation to meet IFRA regs ?

       Given the many ingredients used in perfumes, is it possible that some perfumes have *not* required reformulation ?

     

       As I understand, there have been several discreet rounds of regulations, with a new set having been released just recently.

     

      I don't know enough about perfume to know how many frags will be effected, but it's not too difficult to assume that it might be most of them.

     

        Is it possible that some won't require tweaking, or that there were some which were actually compliant even with the initial set of regs ?

     

        What's your guess ?

    Yes, some frags don''t require restrictions: but the problem still remains since some chemical replacers are very cheap, used instead of "old" ingredients.
