Top 3 Men's Fragrances for the Office

by Jasmine Daniel

Working in close quarters, particularly in an office setting, can be tricky. It's essential to remember that you may have coworkers that have allergies or may be extremely sensitive to fragrance.

Similarly to the dress code, it's crucial to wear a fragrance appropriate for the workplace. Stick to something that doesn't have an overbearing sillage and has a conservative and mild scent profile.

Here are our top three office-appropriate choices that will keep you smelling great all day long!

Prada's L'Homme

Prada L'Homme is an excellent choice for spring and is perfect for the workplace. It's a woody fragrance tempered and balanced with subtle spice and citrus top-notes.

The fragrance opens with a surge of warmth from spicy cardamom, black pepper, and refreshing neroli. A floral bouquet of iris, geranium, and violet balance the spicy opening, and the base of patchouli, cedar, and sandalwood leave behind a subtle warmth as the fragrance dries down. 

L'Homme has excellent longevity, so there's no need to reapply throughout the day. It also has a moderate sillage that won't distract or attract too much attention.

It has a moderate sillage and is long-lasting. This fragrance is ideal for individuals who enjoy earthy scents that are not too heavy or musky.

This fragrance is ideal for the gentleman who enjoys fresh green scents with a surprising hint of spice!

Hermès' Terre d'Hermès 

Are you working a long day? Hermès Terre d'Hermès has extreme longevity, and it will keep you smelling wonderful even as you grind for an extended time.

Like Prada's L'Homme, this fragrance has a woody, spicy profile.

The fragrance opens with a surge of refreshing orange and grapefruit! The citrus top notes are balanced by earthy patchouli, spicy pepper, and a refreshing herbaceous note of geranium. As the fragrance dries down, earthy oakmoss, vetiver, and cedar surge forth to leave a sensual warmth behind. 

This fragrance is ideal for someone who enjoys scents with a distinct citrus aroma! 

 

Giorgio Armani's Acqua di Giò Profumo

Not into spicy or earthy fragrances? Giorgio Armani's Acqua di Giò Profumo is an aromatic aquatic fragrance.

The fragrance opens with cooling marine notes reminiscent of the ocean. Fresh bergamot infuses the scent with a refreshing brightness! Herbaceous rosemary and earthy sage deepen the fragrance, while a base of earthy patchouli and incense balance the overall composition. 

It's incredibly long-lasting and has a moderate sillage that will be noticed but won't attract too much attention in the workplace.

This fragrance is ideal for the gentleman who wants to smell like he's on vacation near the Mediterranean Sea, even when stuck at work!
