Feel free to arrive and leave at anytime throughout the course of the event. Please be fragrance-free before arriving at the center. Here is our fragrance-free guide. Upon arrival, we will work with you to minimize fragrance, which could include asking you to change into extra clothing that we have available. It's best to start the process of getting fragrance out of clothes and hair as soon as possible as it can take up to two weeks. The key words to look for in ingredient lists are "fragrance" and "parfum".
