    Default Worst Office fragrance ?

    Hi BNs,

    From your collection what would be the worst / most innapropriate office fragrance ??

    I give a point to Grey Flannel.

    A*MEN

    I kind of like it but it is too polarizing and strong for the office.
    Between Covid and retirement I don't get out much. But when I do, I smell real good.

    - Paco Rabanne: Pour Homme (vtg)
    - Antaeus (vtg)
    - Azzaro: Pour Homme (vtg)
    - Armani: AdG Profumo
    - Jacques Bogart: Furyo
    - Guerlain: Héritage (vtg)
    - Thierry Mugler: A*men
    - SA: Al Basel
    - D&G: Pour Homme (vtg)

    Possibly among others: One Man Show Gold Edition, Mystique Homme by Al Haramain, CK One Shock, Cerruti 1881 Amber, Royal Oud dello Yemen by Tesori d'Oriente
    (otherwise liking these fragrances very much, but would wear them less/possibly never if not working from a home office but from a more public, regular office/workplace)

    More or less, I'd never wear 1 Million, A*Men and most of flankers, Spicebomb, M7 etc. in the office.

    Can't think of anything from my collection that I wouldn't have worn to the office except Secretions Magnifiques (was not purchased, but gifted to me to add to the collection.)

    I would wear any of my full bottle frags to the office... There's definitely some from my "sample" category that I wouldn't however... And all of those I won't have full bottles of.

    Keep the sprays in check any fragrance is wearable, even the nuclear ones one spray.

    I reckon VCAPH would get the most wrath from fellow co-workers in an office environment.
    Giorgio Beverley Hills and Givenchy Gentleman somewhat

    Just misunderstood huh' ;-/

    Kouros & MKK. Powerhouses in general, unless you spray parcimoniously.

    I enjoy and own a bottle of LAir du Desert Marocain but when I wore a couple sprays to the bank a woman responded like I had dropped a canister of nerve gas ... For a second I thought she was going to collapse on to the floor LOL

    Interlude Man or Leather Oud probably.

    Aoud Cuir d'Arabie might be even riskier. I would only wear Black Aoud to the office if it was on a shirt or sweater I had sprayed about a week or two prior. It would take about that long to settle down into something appropriate for confined spaces.

    Joop! Homme. Even in modern deweaponised format it’s still just too much.

    I’d also struggle with Shalimar as an office scent, not because it’s too femme so much as it’s too stately and plush as an EDP. Possibly the cologne would be doable when I get around to chasing it down.

    I’m thinking the same

    But to give an answer: Bentley Intense is not my first choice for office. Or Interlude.
