    It *was* Guerlain Vetiver - not that I like it any less now, I just grew a bit tired of wearing it so often. Recently, I've been rotating so much I am not sure which one I have worn most or prefer best for office.

    Penhaligon's Racquets; fantastic longevity on me. Very polite but serious frag

    Chanel Anteus; very serious "power" frag with a wee touch of sex appeal; Doesn't project much on me, but I know when I'm wearing it.

    These are in no order but lately, I've been getting great mileage out of Jazz. Such a wonderful fragrance. The deep, dark undertones that YSL Coutoure is famous for with a tinge of heavenly cinnamon to set it off. Perfecto!

    I like Rive Gauche PH, but I really think it is not an "office scent" at this point; it just draws too much attention to itself. That said, just about any fragrance is probably okay if you use just one shot.

    - for me, office frags are supposedly pleasant for everyone, will not offend and not obnoxiously loud. First 2 I really like, but Pleasures is for from being a fave but noticed a lot of people like it.
    I've worn most, if not all, of my frags to work and did notice once or twice that if I wear something like Paco Rabanne PH I shouldn't get too close (physical distance) to my female co-workers for a couple of minutes...someone said I smelled too much of a man!

    The not much mentioned Lalique pour Homme. Subtle, refined, could never be considered offensive in any manner. Quiet well mannered fragrance that lasts, and lasts. Others for sure, but this fragrance comes to mind first.

    Big Pun, my interpretation of an "office scent" is one that you can wear that is inoffensive and non off-putting. Imagine being in an office cubicle and someone is wearing a heavy dose of something that just smells terrible. Something with huge, overbearing sillage. I will suppose that most of us don't want to be that guy (although I know there are some who love to be that guy). For this purpose, we need an office frag. Something light and inoffensive. Something that people can smell all day and not want to choke you while smelling it all day.

    Which office? I can't stop thinking that fragrances used in private banking offices must be different to those worn in, say, advertising agencies.

    So, well, I imagine that a safe scent in the case of:

    - a model agency office, A Men
    - a lawyer's buffet, Escada
    - an advertising agency, something from CK
    - a scholar / academic related office, Guerlain's Vetiver

    Etc.

    My favorite? Well, I don't work in an office. But in the case I would, I would not hesitate using Monsieur Givenchy.

    Yes, it all depends on the kind of office you mean.

    My office happens to be in a prison, so the considerations may be slightly different.

    I wear pretty much whatever I want, but I spray lightly. Some fragrances are just not well behaved, even with a light trigger, and I avoid those. Some just don't seem right for office wear (L'Air or Carnal Flower for example). But I manage to wear Yatagan fairly frequently as well as some pretty feminine stuff without any problems (ie. L'Eau d'Hiver). It's all in the attitude at my office.

    a "best of" list might include...

    Bvlgari PH Extreme
    GIT
    Erolfa
    Cyprus Musc
    Gendarme
    Vetyver by L'Occitane
    Yatagan
    Avignon by CdG
    Fumerie Turque (really, I get complimented on it quite a bit)
    Bigarade Concentrée

    -Slim
    Haikus are easy
    But do not always make sense

    Well, I'm parked in an office all day every day and there aren't many I avoid. However, I know what you mean - I have quite a few, but my most recent buy that seems like it would be a good 'safe' yet interesting and different office scent would be Cereus's latest - No. 14. It's a accessible warm, woody fragrance. I love it, and got compliments on it within hours of getting to work the first day I wore it.
