    Terre d'Hermes ... funny thing, many people recommend it as "good for office" ... I don't think it's that good as it's powerful and that benzoin smell is not to everyone's linking, some people can't stand it...

    I have to disagree here.

    Fleur Narcotique by Ex Nihilo

    This isn’t necessarily deep on the indole scale where floral water stinkiness emerges. By no means. It’s quite nice. But it’s still a floral that swings more female on the unisex scale. And, in fairness, while I don’t necessarily work alongside a dudebro culture I am in management and have a number of guys who work with me, along with a lot of male vendors I’m constantly meeting with . . . so, um, this might be asking them to make quite the leap in what scent they associate with me. Let’s just say that were I to don this one - and assuming it’s noticed (which it likely could be) - it would be a cause célèbre that wouldn’t be forgotten.

    Peculiar. One would have to analyze the gesture, although I'm sure it was an altruistic one Personally, I can't think of anything from my collection that I wouldn't wear. There are those I'd imagine that I wouldn't wear such as this one. However, I'd wear Kouros etc. if the mood struck.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    This for sure.

    Also, Eros is quite loud. Not the best for an office, but great for clubbing I suppose.

    Interesting... the EDP version was my daily office scent for a while and I never received any complaints. I tend to be pretty conservative in the amount of sprays when using a perfume at the office though.

    Does your position or job title have any impact on your fragrance decision making? For example, if you were, say, a lower-level associate in your company, would you still feel comfortable wearing anything from your collection to work?

    Of my collection I would not wear any of the following to work:

    King Kouros
    Lapidus pour homme
    Dior homme parfum
    Dior homme intense
    Opium pour homme
    Santos Concentre
    Herod
    Fahrenheit
    Bentley for Men Intense
    Noir Anthracite
    Encre Noir (sport I would though)
    Gravity
    The Dreamer
    Van Cleef & Arpels pour homme


    I probably could wear these with 1 spray only, I just would rather wear something more discreet.

    Office for Men.

    I've never smelled it but I just had to get the joke out.


    Edit:
    Just saw that I wasn't the first to make this joke.

    The best approach. I also do not spray fragrances around the office like Febreez, as some of my colleagues do, in order to eliminate bad odours.

    I made the mistake of wearing this to work a few times....although only a few sprays. The sillage is way too much for my work place.

    This all seems like a funny story... care to tell more?
    Current Top 10:
    1. Nicolaï - New York Intense
    No order: Histoires de Parfums - Noir Patchouli, Tauer - L‘Air du Désert Marocain, Ralph Lauren - Polo, Gucci - Gucci Guilty Absolute pour Homme, Papillon - Anubis, Nicolaï - Patchouli Intense, Puredistance - M, Pascal Morabito - Or Black, Etienne Aigner - No.1 (1975), and 1740, because Basenoters always bend the rules ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    My vote is for the scent for the worst office I’ve ever worked in. BO, unwashed clothes, soiled underwear, bad breath, and stinky shoes & socks top the list. Horrible job begs horrible smells.

    That's definitely a winner.

    Lovely!

    For me, it's when I wore a sample of Santal 33. I sprayed once to the back of my hand and once to my chest/neck area. I had 3 (negative) comments that day on it.

    Of my collection, I would probably pass on wearing 1899, maaaybe Sycomore, but honestly I try not to buy stuff that is liable to offend other people. One of the reasons I never picked up anything from, say, Zoologist.
