    Smile Job Interviews, and "Professional" Fragrances

    So I was interviewing for a position in my company and a candidate arrived wearing one of the Givenchy Plays, I think original since I didn't smell the prominent chocolate note in Play Intense...Anyways, I started thinking, "unprofessional, clubkid." I dunno, I mean obviously it won't have any bearing on the outcome, but I walked away thinking gourmands and sweet scents just don't give off an air of professionalism. I mean it's one thing when you're in a club trying to cut through the heat, BO and competing scents, but in a workplace, smelling sugary seems to send the wrong message.

    Anyone else have shared or differing perspectives? I mean I may be off base, I don't know, but I do know the impression I got just wasn't positive. And it isn't that I'm a gourmand hater, I actually love my A*Men, Hanae Mori, etc. but I dunno, for a professional environment, gourmands seem to be the aromatic equivalent of wearing a loud patterned club shirt to the office.

    However, I also wear gourmand and other sweet scents to work. Rochas Man, A*Men, Play Intense to name a few. I guess if you can carry it confidently, then wear it.

    I think Gourmands are fine at the office or work, AFTER you get the job and know the people. For interviews (I have interviewed many people in my career) I always appreciated a person intent on a strong 1st impression or no impression as far as a fragrance. Of course this could be many frags but an example would be Gucci Pour Homme and going light on the trigger. Actually, in an interview it doesn't hurt to not wear anything. It can be a distraction for the interviewer and maybe not a good one. Be smart.

    Best not to wear any fragrance at a job interview. What are the chances that you interview with someone who is a fragrance lover and who happens to like the fragrance you're wearing and thinks it's office appropriate - a 10,000 to 1 lottery shot? Why take the risk of being considered unprofessional?

    I wouldn't wear a fragrance to a job interview. Even something most would consider light and harmless might not seem that way to the person doing the interviewing. The job market is difficult / competitive enough as it is. Don't give a company another reason to not hire you.

    I don't wear any fragrance to interviews. (It's practically the only time that I don't wear a fragrance.) My rough cost-benefit analysis goes like this: the interviewer might find your fragrance off-putting, or even nauseating. This can happen even with "safe scents." If that happens, the interviewer is left with a strong negative impression. The potential downside is very big. The benefit, if there is any at all, would be tiny. It's just not worth the risk, IMO.
    If I were to wear a fragrance, though, it wouldn't be a gourmand.

    1. Bois des Iles--Chanel
    2. George Sand--Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier

    5. Santal Blush--Tom Ford

    Nothing. Zero. Zilch. I cannot see how wearing a fragrance can gain you an advantage in an interview scenario. I can see very real disadvantages however.

    IMHO saying that a person shouldn't wear a gourmand to a job interview is just following a stereotype, namely the one that he's not a formal guy. People tend to associate woody scents with masculinity, but the truth is that gourmands are so extended already that this impression just doesn't fit reality anymore. Just my two cents.

    Default Re: Job Interviews, and "Professional" Fragrances

    I would tend to agree that gourmand aren't perfectly appropriate for work or for interviews, though doubtless some people can get away with it. Scent, too, is secondary to the person's other qualities - industriousness, intelligence, etc - which hopefully makes their fragrance somewhat irrelevant. Still, I see little wrong with semi-gourmands - gourmandish, but inedible, as some things are. Like Caron's Nuit de Noel extrait, say.

    Regarding professional fragrances, I was amused to note recently, when in a shop that caters for the most part to the barristers and judges of my city (most of what they sell is legal regalia, wigs, etc), that they sell the Trumper line, keeping no other set of fragrances other in stock. Apparently they sell them to their intended clientèle often, and Trumper is a perennial favourite of barristers here. I asked from curiosity what were their best sellers, and apparently Portugal and Malborough are the most favoured, and after those two the evanescent non-scent of Limes.

    Default Re: Job Interviews, and "Professional" Fragrances

    As an afterthought to my earlier post, I think the most appropriate thing to wear to a job interview, if one is going to wear anything at all, is a fleeting eau de cologne, of good enough quality (no lingering white musks in the base) to not seem ostentatiously eau-ish. Guerlain's Cologne du Parfumeur would be a good choice, as given a few hours it will fade to a pleasant and unobjectionable skin-scent. The ne plus ultra choice, however, would be Chanel's Les Exclusifs eau de cologne.

    Default Re: Job Interviews, and "Professional" Fragrances

    I do wear anything I feel like wearing at my workplace.

    However, for a job interview I would either go scentless or put on a relatively cold, professional scent, most probably a cyphre. And needles to say I would apply it very lightly. I also don't think that a gourmand is an appropriate choice for a job interview.

    if you want to come across as solid, wear something conservative and classic, like eau sauvage or guerlain vetiver (more discrete, especially in the top notes). and most importantly, don't wear too much of it. people should only smell it when they enter your personal space, if mature professionalism is your concern. a leather can be great too, but only in even smaller dosage.

    if your job environment is formal i'd go for a chypre in any case. fougeres are very classic masculine too, but tend to speak in a more casual tone.

    gourmand certainly aren't the best choice in many professional environments, unless you're in the horeca business. ;)

    Hahahahha!! But i guess it still depends. If he is younger than 25, there could be a reason why he is into Play. In the past before I knew about BN, i had only Chanel Allure Homme and Armani Code. He probably only has one hence the decision to use Play. I am just giving him a benefit of doubt

    Give the kid a break, at least he was making an effort to smell nice. There aren't many folk who analyse their fragrance choices to the extent we do and I wouldn't knock points off 'cos he was wearing something you don't like (I might make an exception for Quorum, however ).

    Some good suggestions above... +1 to TdH and Platinum Egoiste.
    -1 to Pure Havane...or any sorts of gourmand! ..as mentioned, feels a bit playful and unprofessional

    My personal favourite though, is Grey Vetiver. I think I've mentioned that before. It portrays a confident personality.
    I lightly applied Grey Vetiver in my last interview and I got the job.
    Never over apply for an interview!

    If you really want the job, don't wear anything to the interview. Too much of a risk. Once you get the job, Boss Number One is the definition of "professional" smelling without resorting to the authoritative vibes of fragrances like Obsession and Aramis.

    Never wear fragrance to an interview. You don't know how it will react with the interviewer, they could be allergic to the ingredients, or it may remind them of something not pleasant. If you do wear something, wear it after you've gotten hired.

    I agree, don't take anything potentially offensive to a job interview. Fragrance, attitude, clothes, hair, food scents, anything. Avoid eating anything with onions or broccoli or beans for 24h before the appointment. Don't wear any clothes with primary colors (what if they're colorblind?) or garish patterns. In fact, don't wear any clothing at all... they might find your fashion choices to be unprofessional. Shave yourself from head to toe, and exfoliate until your skin is almost off (what if they're allergic to dust, dust indoors is mostly composed of dead skin cells!). Shower with soap, then shower again to wash off any fragrance that was in the soap, skin scrub, or shaving cream you used.

    You'll show up naked, hairless, and bleeding... but you won't have any perfumes or allergens or fashion choices to leave a bad impression! Sure to get the job for being so inoffensive!

    Really, though... when you go to a job interview, be yourself. Just make sure you present your best self. I'd say that includes a light application of a fragrance, if fragrance is part of your style. Think "smell like I am clean and professional" not "smell like I am amber and leather and oud and musk". They shouldn't have to sit and suffer your perfume when they're sitting across a desk from you, but when you lean in for that handshake, they should have a chance to catch a faint whiff. If someone crosses you off their list for that, you probably don't want to work there anyway.

    To say that you shouldn't wear any fragrance seems a bit extreme. I concur with vbs, just be yourself and wear what you like, but apply lightly (1-2 sprays) and avoid heavy, sweet, gourmand type fragrances. Stick with fresh and clean.

    I work in a business environment - you rarely smell people - only close up, usually in the morning. Men predominantly wear the dreaded sport fragrances - citrus, aquatic, soapy.

    I dont think anyone really care unless it is way way too much and choking out the interview. Most people see frags as part of getting dressed up nice and dont really think much about it for 2 seconds after they spray it on.

    The interviewer will think the same thing unless they are a psychopath and start saying "Oh no way we are hiring the guy wearing the playful gourmand, I mean if was a lighter Creed or one of the classic Guerlains then he would have a chance but......."

    When it comes to interviews your best either

    1) wearing nothing
