    Default What is your favorite of the inoffensive fragrances?

    Some fragrances we love even though they might be polarizing and not be considered pleasant by the masses (such as at a work environment). Of the scents that are frequently discussed here as "good for work", "inoffensive"...which one is your favorite?

    My choice is Millesime Imperial. I don't wear it that often except in warm weather, but when I'm in a situation where I think "ok I really don't want to smell unpleasant" for a given day (i.e. going into doctor's office, working in close quarters with others, etc) and want to really mind others' space I will go with MI because I enjoy the scent also. The other ones I own that fit this category (Gendarme, AHS, etc) just don't do it for me.

    Tam Dao with Mysore Sandalwood added to it by me. It is impossible not to like it.

    Dior Homme does the job for me. I find the Intense is a little overbearing.

    Prada infusion d'homme. Smells very soapy and stays close to the skin, just like fresh out of the shower all day long.

    A good batch of Millesime Imperial just can't be beat for me. So heavenly.

    Boss Bottled is miraculous in my opinion. Incredibly well made and very enjoyable.

    Floris Santal is one of the ones I reach for when I want a good inoffensive fragrance.

    I'd agree with Floris Santal, very nice scent, similar to Envy...nearly killed my 100ml bottle of that! I cant imagine anyone being offended by the brilliant Tiffany for Men cologne...since I got it I'm finding myself reaching for it more and more.

    I'm not really keen on MI, so you might as well wear what you want, as you'll never please everyone...
    Well, it's cheaper than therapy... edit: No it's not...

    Though I think most stuff with one to two sprays smell ok to the average person.

    Ten sprays of anything won't smell that great IMO.

    Eau Sauvage, perhaps? It just brightens a room...

    Another is a rather unknown little gem, Revillon R - a 'fresh fougere' of brilliance from Maurice Roucel. 200ml bottles are very inexpensive...

    Cheers,
