    MI or GIT. On one hand, it's a shame that such expensive fragrances would be used in such a mundane environment, but on the other hand, a quality scent can truly brighten what would be just another day at the office. An expensive day, but at least it smells nice.

    For work GIT and/or MI. Aventus might smell to different for the workplace, but it depends where you work. TV and Noir just too much for the workplace regardless of where you work.

    I wear any of my fragrances to work. Depends on my mood. For an office setting, I think Aventus would suit you just fine.

    GIT is my least favorite on that list, but I voted for it b/c it is the most universally appealing. Aventus and TV might be too strong for office wear.

    none of those are great office scents, IMO. definitely not the Tom Fords. and the Creeds are a bit too seductive as well.

    you seem to like Creed, check out Tabarome Millesime. that's my favorite Creed for the office and a starched white dress shirt.

    GIT and MI are about as close to universally enjoyed fragrances as you'll find. Unless you use too much, neither will offend anyone.

    TV is too strong, and will put off some people. Aventus isn't as strong, but is less likely not to offend that MI or GIT.

    To me, not offending my coworkers is the primary watchword for an office scent. Smelling nice is a given.
    Current Top Five:

    1. Creed Green Irish Tweed
    2. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
    4. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
    5. Creed Original Vetiver

    Thanks for all the comments and votes. I had been rotating between a lot of Aventus, MI, and some Puredistance until I received my GIT from the Walgreen's deal a few weeks ago. Since then, I've been wearing that a lot more. It looks like that is the consensus here as well

    I'm not exactly sure how to describe it. It's business casual attire...everyone is very friendly and pretty low key. There are a lot of girls my age (early 20's) that work on the same floor, opposite end of the building, in sales. There is a gym in the basement that I use every day at lunch, so I end up taking a shower around 1 pm anyway. I can still smell whatever I am wearing on my clothes, but it's not as intense in the afternoon.

    I agree. I recently sampled it a couple of times ans like it very much. Good longevity and would definitely be a winner on more formal workdays.
