Generally, the best perfumes for the workplace come with subtle citrus or light floral notes. This makes them pleasant to smell and not too distracting for colleagues. Take white florals, for instance. They feature exceptionally bright and airy scents like tuberose, gardenia, jasmine, and lily of the valley – scents that are enticing, fresh, subtle, and above all, far from boring. Or perhaps consider something citrusy, with notes like grapefruit, orange or lemon. These notes are lively and light. Plus, they come with the added bonus of reducing feelings of stress and anxiety.
In an office with good airflow, you might even opt for a bolder fragrance with spicy, woody, and earthy notes. Perhaps a cologne with more musk or vanilla. Or something with a smoky, deep gourmand. Such fragrances tend to give off more of a powerful but controlled scent. In this vein, we also enjoy fragrances based on amber, which give off warm, rich notes that will keep you smelling amazing all day at the office.
