    Default Elegant and upscale fragrance for office

    I’m looking for an elegant, upscale fragrance for office when I’m dressed in suit and tie. I’m manager (38 y/o) in a financial institute. Right now I’m wearing Dior Sauvage almost every day, using only one spray under shirt. I re-apply with the same fashion around 2 pm.

    I checked Prada L’Homme, it is nice, but there is no WOW factor for me.

    Valentino Uomo Intense seems good, but it is usually recommended for cold weather. Obviously my office is air conditioned, don’t know how that affects fragrance suited for cold weather.

    I prefer something a bit more masculine than the Prada L’Homme.
    Regarding the cost I lean towards designer fragrances.

    Thanks in advance for all suggestions.

    Grey Vetiver will work just fine.

    If elegance is what you’re after try Armani Eau Pour Homme. Some people say the current version is almost as good as the vintage. If that’s true you’ll be well ahead of the Sauvage-wearing crowd.

    Other designer gems you could try:

    Cartier L’Envol
    Bleue de Chanel
    Dior Eau Sauvage Parfum

    A vetiver, I'd say, like Guerlain vetiver. Fresh but elegant.

    With bigger budget, Guerlain Derby, citrus woods.

    Another vote for Grey Vetiver and Green Irish Tweed.
    Works awesome year round except perhaps the coldest months.
    Elegant, clean, manly and assertive.

    Good performance without choking anyone out.

    Alternative for colder months, Xerjoff Naxos.

    Dior Eau Sauvage Parfum, as aforementioned. You'd struggle to do much better for the price. Great stuff.

    Agreed. Heard that it's very similar to Creed Aventus. Is that right?

    There are some striking similarities yes, on me it lasts the full day, although projection is only moderate, which makes it an excellent office choice.

    Dior Homme Eau, it's in the same vein as Prada L'Homme but leans more masculine, and IMO it has the wow factor.

    Can you be more spesific? Are you looking for something more classic or modern?
    It sounds like you’re leaning towards iris centric fragrances. I would recommend Dior Homme EDT, or if you
    want something a little more “masculine” Narcisco Rodriguez- For Him EDP or even Divine- L’homme De Coeur.

    If you want something less common, but still fantastic, I see, that other people recommended you Hermes Terre D’Hermes EdT or similar frags. I'd suggest you to try Galimard Aventure, it's similar to Hermes, but I like it a lot more. You can get their discovery kit for 3$ and 100ml EdP bottle costs just 40 EUR + shipping

    Could be classic or modern, but not dated.

    No. the iris is not a necessary note. I need something a bit mature, elegant and luxurious, a fragrance that a James Bond type of guy wear with his suit in the office. I hope this is specific enough.

    Thanks
