They’ve just launched a popular Brad Pitt ad campaign, however, Chanel No. 5 could be in danger of getting banned in Europe.

According to a report, a new committee at the European Union is investigating claims that Chanel and Miss Dior products contain allergens that are dangerous to certain people.

A French perfume worker told press, "Chanel No. 5 has never done any harm to anyone. It is the death of perfume if this continues. The more you use natural ingredients, the more there is a risk of allergies."

The EU committee will finalize a list of harmful ingredients over the next year and issue new fragrance industry guidelines by January 2014.
