    Default Best Capucci scent for the office?

    Which Capucci scent is best for the office? - Opera IV, PH, R?

    Are there any that are more likely unsuitable for the office? If you can compare any of them to scents that are more talked about here, go for it. I am interested in trying a Capucci and am looking for some direction. And I could use an extra office fragrance.

    I use R & PH at the office. Both are fairly "conservative" for office use. On me R projects a little more and also gets more compliments.

    Capucci pour Homme is an inocuous and clean little citrus frag, granted, but beyond a shadow of a doubt the great and inimitable R de Capucci is my first choice.

    They would all work very well at the office
    Opera IV is as modern synthetic type like a zillion others, ph is an underrated aromatic citrus, R is by far the most original and ingenous composition, but despite being a floral-leathery 1980s chypre it is so elegant and understated that it's easily the best choice.

    All three would be fine for the office. I agree that opera iv is quite generic but I do think it is quite well made too. Capucci pour homme is indeed highly underrated. The fact that it remains in production after forty years speaks volumes. R is amazing.

    I don't know now. Last I heard it was "still produced in very small quantities". That was some (four?) years ago. A couple of sites still stocked the 1oz size. Then last year, they all seemed to run dry and I assumed that was it. Seems to be back in stock now in a few places though.

    It is not produced by the current owners of the Capucci brand (who do produce pour homme), and apparently they don't know who does, if anyone. Maybe there is just a backlog of stock floating around? I wonder if anyone other than basenoters buy it.
