Yes. it is. even when you spray on clothes, do not spray on already worn shirt. open it, spray the perfume. kep for some seconds and then wear it. the alchol and strong chemicals can go in our nostrils if we spray it in shirt worn condition and can cause infection.

(The inner writs, base of the throat,behind the knees, the inner elbows,behind the ear lobes and the cleavage are considered the pulse points). Though it is usually advised not to spray the perfume into eyes, it is desirable that it never enters the oral cavity. Many of the fragrances leave a permanent stain on clothes. So some say, it is better not to spray perfumes on clothes , metals and pearls.
Antiperspirants which are sprayed directly onto the skin, actually seals the sweat pores. I think, antiperspirants are therefore interfering with the body's temperature regulating mechanism. Perfumes on the other hand are fragrances dissolved in ethyl alcohol. The cheaper varieties use methyl alcohol, ins ...more

Yes. Spraying perfume regularly over a body part can cause harm. It's always better to spray perfume over your cloths. And try to go for branded perfumes and not the local ones.
