    Default Another Job Interview poll

    First of all I know many say not to risk it and wear any fragrance EVER to an interview.

    Well, I am not of those people and like to live dangerously. Up on the blocks are 5 fragrances. I'll spray the one I choose 1-2 times, it will be about 4 hours before the interview. Thank you!

    It will be around 57 degrees Fahrenheit.

    Of the choices because you asked: Frapin L'humaniste

    For the job I just recently started, I had two separate interviews. I wore Aventus to both. I got the job.

    I don't think it's bad to something to an interview as long as you don't overdo it.

    Good luck getting the job!

    I chose L'humaniste because it will have completely vanished by the time you reach the end of your driveway.

    Good luck!

    I chose Frapin only because I've read that it has low projection and longevity. I'm sorry this isn't from personal experience, but I think it will be a good neutral one as to not offend anyone.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    Lol - yeah, that's what I was thinking when I saw he was going to spray it 4 hours before the interview. That would be extremely subtle by the interview for sure.

    I voted for the Le Labo.

    1. Creed - Original Cologne
    2. Xerjoff - Nio
    3. Creed - Aventus

    6. Tom Ford - Grey Vetiver
    7. Montale - Aoud Legacy
    8. Dior - Homme Sport 2012
    9. Creed - Virgin Island Water

    I'd counsel against it too, but if it were me, I'd go L'Homme. Hard to find any flaws in it as a professional, if tame, scent image.

    I'm also not opposed to wearing perfume to a job interview, but I'd keep it light and wear something that isn't tremendously popular - less chance that you'll remind your potential employer of a dreaded ex or a bad experience. It's probably highly unlikely anyhow, but that's how my brain works. So I think anything on your list is safe, perhaps except the YSL.

    I'd go with L'Humaniste. Smells great and it's safe.

    I definitely would not use Bois d'Argent. It's one of those frags with an almost unpredictable nature as far as projection is concerned and the smell itself can really rub some people the wrong way (personally, I think it's great).

    L'Homme by YSL was the first thing that came to mind as soon as I read the thread title.

    One or two light sprays of L'homme should be fine, IMO. Good luck!
