A chemical used in perfume may stimulate hair growth

Can Perfume Regrow Hair

In the lab they applied the fragrance to the scalp tissue and saw an increase in hair growth and decrease in the death of existing cells.  The science is based on a receptor called OR2AT4 and is found in the outer layers of the follicles.
