    Default Pour Monsieur and Platinum Egoiste - Safe for work?

    I normally wear most everything that I own to work in moderate amounts. However, I was thinking whether Chanel Pour Monsieur and Chanel Platinum Egoiste are generally considered safe for work. Opinions?

    Especially with fewer sprays (although not particularly unsafe even when the number of sprays increases) why not?

    Umm, yeah, I consider Platinum Egoiste to be a professional's fragrance.

    Agree.

    Both are very, very safe choices.

    Unless a fragrance actually triggers people's gag reflex (Grey Flannel) then they should be safe for work.
    Wear what you want and don't listen to people who tell you that you didn't spend enough.

    I would completely agree to the comment about the Grey Flannel. I hated it (although I finished the bottle). It invariably evoked gag reflex in many people who would refuse to ride in the same car with me when I wore it

    Platinum Egoiste is safe, just go light on the trigger.

    And Chanel Pour Monsieur is one of the safest choices possible.
    After 30 minutes, no one will know you're wearing it.

    Almost everything is appropriate for any situation as long as the amount you use as well as where it is applied is appropriate. This goes for pretty much everything.

    Not too much Platinum Egoiste. Think four good sprays max. You'll be in scent bubble heaven. And it makes you feel on top of your game. People are watching you when you smell that good, so you have to keep working. Wear something else if you want to slack off: La Nuit works on a Friday.
    Some favorites, Year released
    1. Chanel Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme, 2012
    2. Chanel Platinum Egoiste, 1993
    3. Dior Homme Intense, 2007
    4. Chanel Allure Homme, 1999
    5. Chanel Allure Homme Sport, 2004
    6. Dior Fahrenheit, 1988
    7. Chanel Egoiste, 1990

    Your tastes are directly in line with mine.

    You can't be serious. These two are among the safest office scents ever. Just go light on the trigger. For a subtle and sophisticated effect, two sprays max, please.

    Platinum Egoiste is like the quintessential young professional scent, to me. It's really strong though so go easy on the trigger.
