Want to smell confident, masculine and inviting at work? Then check out these 5 Best Men’s Fragrances for the Office.
With office fragrances you want to keep 2 things in mind:
- Mass Appeal: You should wear fragrances to the office that are known to be people pleasers! Don’t experiment with fragrances that you like but might offend others.
- Longevity and Projection: Longevity refers to how long a fragrance lasts on your skin. Projection means how much the fragrance ‘jumps’ off your skin. For work scents, you want fragrances with good longevity (so you smell good for 8 hours) but with soft projection so you don’t bother those around you.
All of these fragrances have good longevity, meaning they should last the full day but they don’t project very much which makes them perfect office fragrances.
1. Missoni Parfum Pour Homme (All Seasons)
Missoni Pour Homme is a fresh masculine scent with hints of woods in the base. It has a really appealing opening with a blast of grapefruit and citrus with a dry down that is similar to Bleu de Chanel.
I would argue this is a better option for the office than Bleu de Chanel for 3 reasons. Firstly, Missoni Pour Homme is more affordable so you can wear it daily without looking at your wallet constantly. Second, it is longer lasting than Bleu de Chanel. Thirdly, it doesn’t have the incense note like Bleu de Chanel which makes it even more mass appealing and easy to wear. The quality of the fragrance is really high and it can be worn in all seasons which makes it the perfect year round signature scent.
Most men are wearing Bleu de Chanel, so why not try a unique version of that fragrance that helps you stand out?
2. Dior Homme 2020 (Fall)
Dior Homme 2020 is a fantastic office fragrance owing to its versatility and appeal. This 2020 version has nothing to do with Dior Homme Intense or Dior Homme Parfum because those fragrances rely heavily on the note of iris which is not present in this fragrance.
Instead with Dior Homme 2020, you get a masculine, fresh and woody scent with subtle hints of citrus and spices lingering in the background.
This fragrance sits close to the skin and has a professional/business aura about it that makes it perfect for the office. The longevity for this fragrance is around 7 hours with mild projection.
3. Creed Green Irish Tweed (Spring)
Green Irish Tweed is one of the most iconic fragrances of all time. This fragrance literally smells like you are taking a walk in the countryside in spring after a rain shower surrounded by cool air and fresh grass. In my opinion, Green Irish Tweed is not just a scent but rather an experience. This is arguably one of the greatest fragrances of all time.
Green Irish Tweed by Creed is undoubtedly a luxury priced product, but the quality of the scent and it’s uniqueness, in my opinion, justifies the price.
This fragrance is incredibly unique and has great versatility. You can wear it with a suit to a formal meeting or dress it down to business casual. But I would personally reserve this scent for special occasions like job interviews, important meetings or events.
4. Dolce & Gabbana The One Eau De Parfum (Winter)
The One Eau De Parfum by Dolce & Gabbana is a great warm and sensual fragrance perfect for the cooler months. Women absolutely adore this fragrance on men because of its inviting and cozy scent profile.
The fragrance opens up slightly fresh with grapefruit and ginger but quickly transitions into an alluring base with notes of sweet tobacco, amber and warm spice.
This fragrance lasts about 7 hours and has mild projection which should help you smell great without bothering anyone who is sensitive to fragrances. Perfect for the office during the cooler fall and winter seasons.
5. Calvin Klein Eternity Aqua for Men (Summer)
Eternity Aqua is a terrific fresh aquatic scent perfect for the warmer months. With a slightly fruity and aquatic scent profile, Eternity Aqua is a highly complimented fragrance.
The fragrance starts off bright with citruses and aquatic notes. In the middle, you get a fresh plum and cucumber accord which gives it a fantastic cooling and uplifting scent. In the base, you have woods and musk. From start to finish this fragrance will help you smell clean and confident.
Eternity Aqua has good longevity and moderate projection which makes it a great choice for the office in the warmer months.
For the office you want to smell clean and professional without annoying people around you. For that you need fragrances that are appealing but not loud. This list contained the perfect fragrances for the office for every season. Let me know which fragrances you like to wear to the office.
