    Try something from the creed line, you pretty much described the image they go for, maybe Millesime Imperial, Aventus, Green Irish Tweed
    Or perhaps an Amouage or Terre d'hermes

    Burberry London might work.

    Welcome!

     

    It might depend on the impression you want to give. If you want to be butch, aggressive, eg a trader, you could try masculine leathers, like Knize Ten (a classic) or Dior Leather oud (more animalic). If you want to give an impression of refinement and be schmoozy (like in marketing), you could check warmer, enveloping things based on ambers or incense, like Etat libre d'orange Je suis un homme or Guerlain Derby.

     

    cacio

    Try amouage line for opulent. Summery would be Beloved, Tribute or Reflection. Winter interlude or Jubilation.

    If you are a junior (as your age implies) I would advise for a less agressiv scent. Something that does neither imply "power" nor "rich" because both are the result of experience and a good job over a significant period of time. You can get away with this in your mid thirties but not at the beginning of your career.

     

    I am working in finance myself and I have seen my share of ambitious young people coming straight from university. Usually it takes some years in the business until they start realising that real life is quite different from what they have been tought at university.

    I would recommend something more refined that doesn't imply rich, power and royal.

     

    I say Rive Gauche Pour Homme would do a great job at letting others know that you are a man that exudes confidence and maturity.

    This one would make a good choice, IMO. Or if you want to go more subtle, but opulent then Dia Man by Amouage.

    I recommend Amouage either Homage or Tribute attars and the original Michael Kors for winter scent.
