All, to me, are quiet, tasteful fragrances.
It's interesting how different our perceptions are. I agree these are fine scents, but they are "perfumey" to me, not what I'd personally call "quiet".
If they're really sensitive to scent, you may be able to get away with something like those Bvlgaris- the green tea (Eau la Vert) or white tea (Au Blanc) - not sure if those are spelled correctly - scent applied sparingly, but I don't think anything else would be subtle enough. Carriere (Gendarme) might blend in with dryer sheets smell or soap smell and they may not read it as perfume.
The choices are pretty limited, though. Anything citrus or floral or musk or amber, etc, will be very apparent to people not used to being around perfume. I'm bummed you need to work around this - my family embraces scent, so I've never had to deal with these types of restrictions, and really light scents are not my favorite genre, so the Bvlgari options are the only ones I can think of right now. Thankfully, they're readily available at just about any department store.
