DETROIT (KGO) -- You might say change is in the air for Detroit city workers.

The city will warn employees not to wear scented products. That includes colognes, after-shaves, perfumes, lotions and even deodorants. Scented candles and air fresheners are also no-no's.

Why the new rule? Detroit news outlets say it stems from a federal lawsuit by a city employee who said a colleague's perfume made it hard for her to do her job. She won a $100,000 settlement.

This should be interesting. :p

Some of my coworkers use scent diffusers and crap like that. This ruling effects city workers, not state workers, so we don't have to worry here.

I have a discreet candle warmer that makes the hallway outside my office smell like maple doughnuts. I don't do it for the effect of having a "nice" smelling office...I do it to make people hungy :D It works.
