Not knowing if this is true or not, it's getting sent to you JUST IN CASE. Where do they come up with these ideas????
READ ASAP IMPORTANT

Seven women have died after inhaling a free perfume sample that was mailed to them.
The product was poisonous. If you receive free samples in the mail such
as lotions, perfumes, diapers etc. throw them away. The government is
afraid that this might be another terrorist act. They will not announce
it on the news because they do not want to create panic or give the
terrorists new ideas. Send this to all your friends and family members.

It's a hoax that's been floating around for a long time.

Can't get the direct link to the article, but type "Perfume" in their search feature, and you'll find it.

I am not certain if it is real or not, but I have smelled some scents that made me wish I was dying. Yuck, where do they come up with some of these?

Sounds like one of those e-mails that collects more e-mails along the way. But if you end up dying from a perfume overdose, don't hold me to my words! :grin5:

Try reading the Warning label on the back of "Imposters" perfume and MANY others!! It has a warning concerning inhaling the perfume. LOL Odd. :)

I always check the Urban Legends Reference Pages before I believe anything I get in an email.

Sounds too much like a hoax but it makes you think about checking all mail prior to opening. Thanks for the reminder.
