    Definitely Paris Hilton.. if for nothing else, getting to see the look on a rugged hardware customer's face when you tell him what manly man scent you are wearing.

    In all seriousness though, if it isn't too hot yet in Miami, I would go with Michael Kors! It have quickly come to love it, but I am hesitant to purchase a full bottle because the Texas summer is about to unleash the beast! But if you are going to be inside with cool air-conditioning all day, then who cares?

    Cool Re: New Job Ace Hardware what do i wear?

    Miami?

    I'd wear a .357 magnum strapped to my belt if I worked the night shift, or if I was the only one in the store.

    Well, I can't think of a time when it wasn't hot in Miami, but compared to Texas? Ok, point well taken.

    If it's air conditioned, by all means spray on the Michael by Michael Kors. Or the poor man's Himalaya: Paco's XS
    Otherwise you're on your own . . .

    Cheers,

    Mario

    Ace Hardware in Miami, huh? Which one - I work in Downtown Miami near the one on 16th St & NE 2nd Avenue and I go there all of the time to get keys made.

    If I encountered an employee at Ace, I think I wouldn't mind him smelling like Rive Gauche Pour Homme.

    Good luck!

    Well I'd say you can eliminate Kouros and A*Men if nothing else. Good God, I used to live in Miramar, do you ever actually find occasion to wear A*Men without dying in a chocolate fume?

    From your list I'd definitely go with the Cartier Concentre' for that freshly manicured lawn scent. If you had time I'd suggest swapping for a bottle of Mugler's Cologne so you could wear something that wouldn't offend anyone you might meet in a hardware store.

    I would think the original poster has decided by now

    But I think we can think of the thread as now being :

    What would Al Borland from the TV show Home Improvement wear ? :toppie:

    I think a good choice would have been YSL Homme. It looks like a bolt.

    XS.
    Young, still student, Miami, hardware.I will stay away from the powerhouse fragrances from your list such as Fahrenheit,Kouros or A*Man. I assume you do not know your fellow workers, environment etc etc.
    Walk in with something fresh and uplifting, look around, check out how the people is and save the strong juices for later on, it will do the trick better.
    New working environment... people tend to behave territorial, critical and not very cooperative, bring them a breeze of fresh, like waving a "peace flag". Once you have the situation under control wave other flags.
    Good luck
