    DO NOT WEAR FRAGRANCE TO A JOB INTERVIEW. PERIOD.

    Sorry for the all caps. This is the first time I've used them. That's how strongly I feel about this issue. And it is based on personal experience as one of the partners that did the interviews and hiring for a company for several years.
    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

    You're really not supposed to wear fragrances to job interviews. Bad form.

    You could get away with Bulgari PH. It's very professional and literally the most discreet frag I can think of.


    Other than that I'd say don't wear any.

    Relax everyone. He's not in the States. He's in Portugal. People there aren't adverse and averse to perfume. They're normal. Hurrah.

    Quite so! I remember a similar cultural division last time this issue was raised.

    Olá Picollo30,

    I think that one or two sprays of something like Platinium Egoiste or Davidoff coolwater is enough.

    Unless the job interview is in a perfume store.



    Abraço!!

    I've worn fragrances to all job interviews I've had in the States (I've only been employed here), and got all but one of the jobs I interviewed for (but also was over twenty minutes late for that interview).

    For the last one I probably wore Armani Code Sport.

    Well, this won't work with anyone I know including myself ....

    My advise is with the majority: no fragrance or one spray maximum.

    If the interviewer is female, she will check for appropriate, clean, well fitting clothes and polished shoes of good quality. Being well groomed and with a proper haircut will be noticed as well. If you are getting this right you have passed the first test.

    One spray of everything in your collection should do the trick.

    On the flip side, I've worn Fumerie Turque when laying someone off. Seemed appropriate with the whole "funeral pyre" bit.

    I asked the same question here once, overwhelming majority said don't wear anything. I wasn't going to, but right before the interview I sprayed Aventus on. Ended up getting an offer for the job, obvs has nothing to do with perfume. Honestly I'd wear fragrance if you felt like it, most people here say don't wear, don't wear, fuck that. There's no rule against smelling good. In many case it makes you comfortable, gives you confidence, I say why not. Granted, don't go overboard with application of the juice, but it's no crime to wear perfume. And frankly, if you are a dude it's a double standard, most women I've encountered at work are drowned in perfume in office environments. A lot of people say oh it's a first impression what if you offend them or allergic...whatever, life's taking chances, no need to be so bland about this.

    Wear whatever you like, and on this topic in particular, I'd ignore the popular consensus. There's no right or wrong answer here, do whatever feels good man.

    Nice response. I just had an interview on Wednesday. Told myself I would not wear anything after much contemplation. Wound up spraying my wrist with one shot of La Nuit. It helped calm my nerves and made me feel more comfortable. So yeah, just go with what you feel like doing.

    I'd go with 2 sprays of YSL L'Homme on the neck and chest, one each.

    1 Spray of Aventus if you ask me. Chest/neck.

    +1, and quoted for truth. If I'm the interviewer, my first priority is to look for qualified candidates -- whether they're scented or not.

    I used 6 sprays of Aventus, and ended up making out with the only female interviewer while the two male interviewers watched

    depends on the job and on you. if youre applying for artistic director of a theater, expectations are different than if youre interviewing at Goldman Sachs. That applies to haircut, jewelry, clothes, and fragrance.

    So six sprays of Aventus make you hallucinate. That is good to know.

    The above sounds like reasonable advice.

    My personal experience: I work in the IT sector in the US as an application programmer, and have had two job interviews in the last year or so. Got the offer both times. Each time I was wearing a moderate amount of fragrance (~3 sprays on shirt fabric). Once it was Tom Ford Grey Vetiver, the second time Bulgari Pour Homme Extreme.

    Avoid any cologne for an interview at all costs...
