Is there ANY niche that is Safe For Work or do I have to stick with designer frags?

There are several niche houses that have safe-for-work scents (subjective of course)
Bond No. 9 (Chez Bond, Bleecker Street)
by Kilian (Straight to Heaven)
Creed (Himalaya, Original Vetiver, GIT, Royal Oud)
Ormonde Jayne (Ormonde Man)
Frederic Malle (Vetiver Extraordinaire, L'Eau d'Hiver, Dries van Noten)
Guerlain (Guerlain Homme Intense, Guerlain l'Homme L'Eau Boisee, Bois d'Armenie, Tonka Imperiale, LIDGE, Vetiver)
Diptyque (Tam Dao)
MFK (Acqua Universalis Forte)
Quite a few more, but this is a start...
As others were saying, most niche is safe. NSFW are only those that are very dirty (like Muscs Koublai Khan) or are superpowerful. Some, but not all, Amouage are (or were) superpowerful - the smell would be perfectly fine, the sillage could be too much. But then, say, Homage, especially in its current incarnation, is as safe as it gets.
I do often wear a drop of Tribute on a paperstrip in the breastpocket of my suit - but I agree that more than that might be too much for the workplace.
Interesting read. I wore 1 spray on my arm of LIDGE to work and was told it was too strong, so I didn't expect to see that one mentioned. Ones I like to wear to work that I didn't see mentioned yet are Creed Original Santal, SMW, MI; Bond No 9 Coney Island and Wall Street.
I love those Creed's too...I have MI and Aventus...but really wanting Royal Oud and SMW...
