    Exclamation Something nice for my office in the SUMMER..

    Hi everyone.

    I know there is already loads of suggestions, but I am sure there is new things on the market all the time.

    My office is always humid and hot in the summer and I work with a shirt and tie.

    I am after something nice and 'summery'. Prefer to have unique fragrances, not the usual suspects, and something that's going to hang about until lunch time.

    So, the task is to suggest something that's a little sweet, not the 'usual' office smells and something that people arent used to smelling...

    Lets see what we can come up with?

    I usually wear Guerlain Homme, Creed GIT but want something a little more like the beautiful weather outside..

    A little sweet, unique, people aren’t used to it, summery, elegant: HermŔs - Eau de Pamplemousse Rose – and a thousand other fragrances.

    Thanks for the tip!

    I enjoy going to the usual stores to smell them all but after whiffing 2 or 3, I cant smell anything anymore!

    I will have a look at the Hermes one.

    Shame i cant guy them all!!

    Well, I like to wear Chergui (Serge Lutens) for the office. I have been complimented on it and it certainly is 'unusual' as an office frag. Despite some people saying they like to wear it in the cold, I don't agree. It does the trick best on me when warm and sunny, but then I also don't produce rather less sillage than others probably. Still, you may want to try it where they sell the Serge Lutens.

    I work for the gov't with 1400 employees, and my office has only 19. Currently in my rotation, I'd say Erolfa, Allure Cologne Sport, BLV, L'Instant, or Bleecker Street

    Great works are performed, not by strength, but by perseverance.

    I agree with the recommendation of BLV. It is truly an under-appreciated office scent. And in the summer, I can see the giner/ginko combination being oddly refreshing... +1

    Two that might be good for summer that are under the radar and with a bit of sweetness are
    Zegna Colonia and Canali Men.

    If you want something a little sweet for summer, you might try L'Instant de Guerlain EDT. It has a nice citrus opening over a woody, somewhat sweet base with a litle cocoa mixed in. I think it works pretty well in the summer. Actually, it works well all year but does just fine in the summer and doesn't really smell like anything else that I know of. There is also an EDP version, which I haven't tried, although I would think that might be a bit heavier.

    Ask for samples... get decant supplies and ask if you can decant samples of a couple of your faves... Just a thought.

    Artisan by John Varvatos is a very office-safe summer scent that starts with citrus notes and dries down to a more orange-blossom floral scent. You can also try Artisan Black which is a recently released limited edition run of Artisan which replaces the floral notes with some soft woody notes.
