    Default Scents for the office and day to day wear(26 year old male)

    So far I own

    CK Eternity
    Hanae Mori for Men
    Lolita Lempicka for Men

    I like all 3 but looking to expand my collection. What are you some classy and professional scents I should look into, ones that fit well in an office setting but also work outside of it.

    Chanel Egoiste (I think it's better than Egoiste Platinum)

    Chanel Pour Monsieur

    Gendarme (perhaps the ultimate office scent)

    All classy scents.

    For a manly barbershop edge, YSL Rive Gauche is awesome

    I'm the same age, so I'll give you my same-age wisdom.
    For the work setting:
    Twice - Iceberg
    Egoiste - Chanel
    Roadster - Cartier
    Ted - Ted Lapidus
    Unbound - Halston
    Wicked - Bijan
    Amber Pour Homme - Prada
    London - Burberry
    Gucci Pour Homme II - Gucci
    V Pour Homme - Valentino
    Dunhill for Men - Alfred Dunhill
    All of these are inexpensive and functional, as well as inoffensive. I'm sure you've noticed by now several nominations for Prada Amber and Egoiste. It's because it's true. They rock just hard enough.

    For all occasions, all seasons, all type of clothes, and all ages, Creed Himalaya. Icy-fresh, clean, and modern woody oriental.

    Of the frags I know well i'd suggest looking at:
    Rive Gauche pour Homme both edt and intense
    Essenza di Zegna
    Z Zegna
    Be carefull if you go with YSL Pour Homme as it can really project on a warm day.

    I'd recommend so lighter scents for the warmer days. I wouldn't wear Lolita Lempica or Hanae Mori on hot days. Eternity may also be a bit much for summer. Check out some light citrus. I would recommend:

    Kenzo L'Eau par Kenzo
    Perry Ellis 360 degrees Red (or Armani Aqua di Gio if you want to spend the extra money)
    Azzaro Chrome Legend
    Hugo Boss Energise

    Vetyver- L'Occitane
    Colonia- Acqua di Parma
    Loewe Homme
    Woods- Abercrombie

    +1 on Grey Vetiver Tom Ford, perhaps Acqua di Parma Assoluta, or (if you have some extra cash to splash) Absolute Pour le Matin Maison F. Kurkdjian
    l'air libre les oiseaux ont eux aussi le vertige (camille)

    Default Re: Scents for the office and day to day wear(26 year old male)

    This is what I wear:

    Chanel Platinum Egoiste - clean, not dated, and gives me a powerful feeling
    MI, Creed - Nice and classy (I don't own, but I would wear it if I had it)
    Tom Ford Grey Vetiver - clean, corporate vetiver...awesome!
    Encre Noie, Lalique - Just like Tom Ford Grey Vetiver but the dark smokiness is amped way up and the soap way down.

    Btw, I am 30 and work for a large company

    If you want to crank up the "power" quotient a little, you might consider New York by Parfums di Nicolai, and/or Tabarome Millesime by Creed.

    so many advises... maybe it just confuses you. the greatest office scents i know of are polo green and tuscany. balanced projection and sillage, inoffensive for sure, masculine, 'honest', pleasant to wear, longlasting, dignified.... this is what you need for the office... and honestly, it may help you being promoted. on the other hand, if you like to be fired - wear rochas man.
