GIT. Luna Rossa would also be a good choice.
Thread: Job Interview
Yes, I know that etiquette dictates that one should NEVER WEAR COLOGNE AT A JOB INTERVIEW, but I am going to ask anyway. I have an interview coming up later this week for a job that I don't really care if I get or not. I am happily employed and have nothing to lose if I don't get this job. I don't think I am a shoe-in for the position, but I am fairly confident that I will be one of the top candidates. Again, I am happily employed, so I literally have nothing to lose, and this is why I'd like to wear a fragrance. Of course, I want to be professional and don't want to suffocate the interview team. The interview is semi-formal (maybe I'll wear a tie, but definitely no suit jacket).
Here are my options:
- Cool Water
- Acqua di Gio
- Bleu de Chanel
- Virgin Island Water
- D&G: The One
- Terre d'Hermes
I think I also have some samples of Spicebomb, I Love NY Father's Day, I Love NY Earth Day, Prada Luna Rossa and Silver Mountain Water.
Thanks for your help and suggestions!
GIT. Luna Rossa would also be a good choice.
Bleu de Chanel
Hard to say without knowing what kind of job it is.
It is for a job in a library.
Then I'd go with the adg.
Is the Terre d'Hermes edt or edp? If edp, I would go with 1-2 sprays max. Otherwise, GIT.
Library job seems like a time for D&G The One. Amber and libraries seem to go well together IMO. More than a citrus would. Subconsciously, they will be thinking... "this person belongs in our library. Not sure why, but he just seems to fit here..."
Some of the other fragrances they might think: "this person seems like he belongs on a beach somewhere or riding on a skateboard, not in our library..."
But no matter what, just go kinda light.
Terre D' Hermes is pretty safe.
I'd go with either The One by D&G or Terre d'Hermes by Hermes. If you still can't decide, go with Green Irish Tweed. Good luck!
Terre d'Hermes. It's calm and intelligent, confident but not aggressive.
Cool Water or Acqua di Gio
They are favorites, mainstream and more than likely will not offend anyone.
Acqua di Gio (if you must)
I recently used Luna Rossa for a job interview. Still haven't heard back from them, but I'm not blaming that on the cologne. I feel like Luna Rossa is a nice fresh smelling cologne that would be good for an office atmosphere.
Like someone else said before, for a library job I think The One would be perfect. To me it's a very rich, sophisticated scent that would really work well. Plus in my experience it's not an incredibly powerful scent, so it won't overwhelm the interviewer.
I definitely wouldn't use Spicebomb or Virgin Island Water.
Just keep in mind that the last thing anyone wants in a library is anything loud.
Hermes and Bleu would be safe, I think.
In a job interview, you want them to remember them for you, not your smell.
If you really don't care whether you get the job, then any of those is probably ok, and use your judgment about not suffocating the interview team.
My only worry about situations like that is that you wear a fragrance that someone interviewing you associates with an unpleasant memory or person, and thus takes a dislike to you because of that, possibly without even realizing it. For that reason, I'd go with the least likely candidate for that: maybe the Luna Rossa or GIT or one of the Bonds. But again, if you're not that bothered, it doesn't matter.
Lightly applied, Green Irish Tweed.
VIW because no one but you will smell it.
I'm in the best not to wear perfume, just in case camp, but out of those I'd say GIT or Bleu.
GIT or TdH
"As you walk down the fairway of life you must smell the roses, for you only get to play one round."
It sounds like you are going just to impress someone with your fragrance or at least get a compliment since you care less about getting the job. Are you going to follow up with them after a few days incase if you did not hear from them about the position or about your fragrance?
This is not a comment on your fragrance choices but about how you said you may dress. Anytime you wear a tie you should wear a jacket. It is really not proper to wear a tie without one. The tie is the more formal element of the outfit, not the jacket.

Here's a quote:
IF NOT A SUIT:
If you are absolutely convinced that a suit and tie would be inappropriate, for instance if you are told specifically not to wear a suit and tie, lose the tie before you lose the jacket. Wearing a tie without a jacket makes you look like a cell phone salesman at the mall. A professional might wear a sportcoat and trousers with no tie, but never a tie without a jacket. You will have more latitude in these less formal situations, but the same principles of keeping your clothing clean, simple, and well-fitting still apply.
