No: No. Unless you have problem with fragrances, like allergy.

Yes: Although most people will tolerate these products, it is one more environmental allergen which can cause a skin issue.. Repeated exposure will increase your chances of an allergic reaction to just sensitive skin. Fragrances can also act as air none allergen and contribute to nasal allergies in sensitive individuals. It is best to use hypoallergenic products fragrance free.
