    Some of my favorites for the office:

    Aventus
    Original Vetiver
    Viking
    EROLFA
    Dior Homme Cologne
    L'homme Ideal Cologne
    Castile
    Sartorial
    Vetiver Tonka

    I often pick other scents, but I seem to gravitate more towards those I've listed and lately I've added H24.

    It's more about how much I wear, not what I wear. One spray under the shirt of almost anything is pretty "office safe". Especially if you let it dry down before putting the shirt on.
    Spray less, love more.

    Any scent that I feel would be compatible for the office.

    I work alone (even more so during the pandemic) and often am outside, so I only have to match the weather, rather than mind my sillage around others. This lets me pretty much wear whatever.

    I work from home, but if I have a meeting I wear something clean. Chanel Eau De Cologne from the Les Exclusifs line is a winner. Castile is great too. If the circumstances were right, I'd wear 1725, but it's been ages since I've had formal meetings.

    For work, I never try to impress people with my scent. I want to impress them with my work.
    Current Favorites (in no particular order)
    Castile
    Boy Chanel
    Endymion
    Royal Oud
    APOM
    Curve
    1725 Casanova
    Tabac Rouge
    Reflection Man
    Green Irish Tweed
    Tom Ford Extreme
    Interlude Man
    Chanel Eau De Cologne
    Aqua Universalis
    Terre d'Hermes Parfum
    Pomelo Paradis
    Amouage Silver Man

    I retired early to start a part time consultancy. My go-to work fragrance at my corporation was Hermès TdH or Hermès Orange d’Vert. I’d throw in Montblanc Homme Exceptional, Baldesarini Ambre, Drakkar Noir, Baldesarini Hugo Boss or pretty much anything I had from time to time. I didn’t try any of the MFKs, Malles, Creeds, or niche fragrances I wear now until years after my retirement, and at home, the only customer I can horrify is my wife (I try not to do that often).

    Choosing the day’s perfume is the most difficult task in the morning.
    Sometimes I wake up knowing what i am going to wear.
    Most of the days I spent a few minutes looking at the bottles of my collection waiting for a bottle to “talk” to me.I don’t use specific perfumes at work. My scent of the day is my work perfume.

    Just started a new master at university, but when I was employed I wore whatever I had because we did not have fragrance policies and I had my own office.
    Wore mostly Terre d'Hermes, Dunhill Icon Race. When I started my niche frag journey, I rotated between 1725, Bleecker street and sometime Chergui

    I've been working from home ever since I seriously got into the habit. Still wear a different fragrance most days!Actually meeting some workmates today for lunch and a walk. Might go Guerlain Vetiver - pretty miserable day here so that could work?

    I don´t have office-specific frags, but I do avoid overspraying (4-5 sprays max) and I tend to chose frags according to the weather (lighter/fresher frags during the warmer days). That´s about it.

    Anything with a light application. To play it the safest, I go with Chanel Pour Monsieur. For compliments in the office, Platinum Egoiste has worked best.

    One of my most memorable fragrance days in the office was with Christian Dior Jules. I couldn’t get over how much I liked it.

    It’s fairly rare to make it in to the office, so it tends to be memorable.

    I’ve worn vintage Antaeus in the office and it was totally fine / not risky.

    When the office is full, things like Chanel 19, Givenchy III, citrus colognes. When I'm going to have the office to myself, I seize the opportunity for wearing something wildly office inappropriate with lots of sexy dirt and spice.

    I don't restrict myself too much but I leave the more bombastic choices for the weekend. Original Vetiver is probably my quintessential work pick.

    Alas. I have not been back in the office since we were put full time at home due to the pandemic. I could return to the office now if I wanted, but none of my colleagues in my section of the building would be there. I would be sitting by myself in that area. So, the social part of working is pretty much gone, so there is very little reason to go back into the office. And now rising gas prices make the idea of driving to work a hit on my money. I could use that money in other areas.....like fragrances.

    I work in an office that fragrances are not allowed. I usually apply a micro-application to the wrist so that I can hold it to my nose and get a hit without anyone else noticing.

    Wow, that's rough. I wouldn't even know if I'd keep fragrances as a hobby if my job disallowed it--I don't wear fragrances at home.

    When I was working, I'd wear anything to the office so long as it wasn't a rich ambery oriental or spicy oriental of the kind that gave the message,
    "I'd rather be out night-clubbing or hunting for women than being here".
