What's an office scent? Inoffensive/subtle?
Are we each supposed to say 5 or are we trying to compile a list of the overall greatest 5? I think the latter would be cooler because by the time everyone says their own 5 there are a lot of garbage responses usually. I know I couldn't come up with 5 definitive ones. The only definitive daytime fragrance that I love and know that women love: YSL Live Jazz
Other than that, there are some good ones such as Laguna, Gris Clair, Brit, Terre de Bois, and if you're not afraid to go super fresh/aquatic (which I am) then Aqua de Bulgari and Benneton Sport make decent choices as well. YSL is the only one of those that I would put on a definitive top 5 list though.
Dior's Eau Sauvage
Creed's Millesime Imperial
Yves St. Laurent's Rive Gauche Pour Homme
Peggy: "Right now, we have to get to the mental institution. Something terrible has happened."
Peggy: "Brother Boy has tried to kill himself. He jumped out of his bedroom window."
Latrelle: "Isn't he only on the second floor?"
Peggy: "Yes, but he hit his head on a lawn gnome."

"Live, live, live! Life is a banquet, and most poor suckers are starving to death."
Five that I have found great for the office and that are liked by women are:
- Chanel Egoiste
- Caron L'Impact de Pour un Homme
- Boucheron Jaipur Homme EDP
- Czech & Speake Neroli
- Dior Homme

Holy crap! Other than Gendarme, those are shocking choices for a daytime office frag. Good scents, but wow, you must have a lotta hutzbah to pull those off given the context!Originally Posted by dr.creed

Great choice, Boucheron pour homme, both as intimate and casual wear... but only as a EDP
Rive Gauche (lightly applied)
Those are four that have been mentioned a lot that I think deserve a place as much as any other. At some point it definately just comes down to preference though. Not only are those all good for the office but women seem to dig them. Well, at least Live Jazz, RG, and Egoiste. I've never actually gotten a compliment on Brit, but I haven't owned it for very long. Besides, other people report it being well recieved so I'll trust them. Anyways, definately great office frags.
