BE YOUR BOSS AT THE OFFICE – About Office Wear Perfumes
“My head feels like it’s in a vice after a board meeting.”
My friend whined to me over the phone and all I could ask was, ‘Why? Was it a hard agenda?’
‘Nah! That’s all fine! This mass fragrance that hits onto your head is such a pain, you know!’ He said!
I left a sigh, well after all I am a perfumer, passionate about odors and the stories it tells!
Since then, I’ve always thought about how fragrances used in offices and workplaces should be created with the utmost precision and simplicity. Well, beautiful aromas are all-time better than sweaty and irritating body odor, but choosing the right one is as important as wearing one! Why wear perfume to the office? Ah! Let me decode that for you!
Firstly, just like being dressed up well in a suit or a tuxedo making you feel ready to work, a brilliant scent plummets your soulful dedication for the long day ahead! Who wouldn’t want their confidence boosted while going to a very important conference or leading a team of new trainees at an office! It can induce a sense of faith and belief in yourself, making you more productive at work. Once you figure out the odor that matches, you might wonder why your to-do lists are getting ticked so quickly! The magic lies in how you smell and how you feel about yourself, and about what’s around!
When you have a busy day at the office, running from cabins to conference rooms, you’re bound to develop a bad body odor, but having a fragrance by your side can keep you fresh and alive! Imagine sitting beside someone who smells of fish and meat, would you feel good? No, right? An amazing aura imparting positivity and liveliness helps the company to cross newer milestones, for you have turned exclusively irresistible! Brushing your teeth, washing your face, and relaxing with a cup of tea make your day better? Well, try adding a few flowers on your side-table, that’s the change perfumes can bring!
To add, didn’t you hear of the saying, ‘The first impression is the best impression’? We conceive people at first look, by the way they are dressed, by the way they speak and listen, and the fragrance they pass! You possess authority with a great smell, over colleagues and employers! You could win over some possible clients and force them indirectly to trust and sign a deal with you! Well, the sway of floral and oriental scents that travel hearts are a prerequisite to complete the look-book for office attire, is what I affirm by!
I know, you might be thinking ‘but why office-special perfumes!’
Because it draws a clear line between work and home, or work and anything else that matters to your lifestyle! Isn’t it hard to mediate between two very different atmospheres, contemplate with the context, and then function accordingly? Fragrances help you in differentiating at one spray! And there you go, to conquer the world at your profession and to vibe along with your family, all at one snap, cool right! Secondly, it adds to your presentation of oneself crediting more to your involvement and uniqueness, a trait that everyone adores at workplaces. It changes how people perceive you and consider you apt to handle the utmost responsibilities in your path to the top!
Well, to choose a perfume that compliments your office attire and the atmosphere is very simple. Go for a less offensive and fresh scent, being very mild and not something that can bring make your colleague’s migraine pangs! Sweet or spicy is your preference, but making it light to the nose and deep in perception is the ultimate key! Floral ones with a little vanilla or sweet musk can be pulled off quite easily! Stay away from being an attention-seeker with pungent and overpowering notes that can turn down a lot of emotions that come your way. Just to smell good, tons of perfume is not the right manner! Go for the ordinary rule of spraying a light one twice at the pulse points and refrain from crossing the border. Also, keep switching your scents constantly be three or four a week so that you still stay the ‘noticed’ and ‘attended’ in the office. Who would want to go unnoticed after all that effort, right?
Well, here goes a few suggestions to make your workdays even better and prolific!
Let’s begin with the best-selling in town, the 2017 launched L'Homme Louis Breton abiding by all the formal regulations of an office wear odor. From the Chypre fruity family, the individual notes come together and blend quite well to stay just in a working atmosphere. With notes like Blackcurrant, Bergamot, Apple, and Pineapple topping the well-flavored scent, it stays unique in the crowd. With a center design of Rose, Dry Birch, Moroccan jasmine, Patchouli, it only seems to upgrade to a clearer version of itself. Talking of youth at all times, the shreds of evidence of Oakmoss, Musk, Ambergris, and Vanilla spaces the bar to a high notch.
Created by Jacques Cavallier in 2005, the Bvlgari Aqva Marine for Men Eau De Toilette 100ML is yet another spectacular scent to blend well with your workspace. Beginning with mild aquatic notes and hues of Water Notes, Calabrian bergamot, Sicilian Lemon, and Sage, the flourishing aura it spreads is beyond words. With a heart of Ambergris and apple, this modern contemplate turns into being a part of your skin rather than an undercover with well-defined notes of Benzoin, Vetiver, Patchouli, Sandalwood, and Amber wood. Imagine having a dip in the Atlantic Ocean and coming over with refreshing zest, that’s exactly what this minimalist bottle does! It’s cool blue shade and round sculptural impact of the container adds to the graceful stature of the product, one of the reasons why it’s my favorite!
With a very moderate scent under the Eau De Parfum concentration, my next preferred choice would be the Victor Hills Precious. With a very casual woody odor, seemingly beholding an underwater essence, this perfume is topped by marine notes along with a tint of grapefruit and citrus. Adding to the woody texture and pungency is the Laurel Guaiac Wood, sage, and lavender floral notes. Well, all the credit for the long-lasting simplicity of this marvel goes to its base notes of Amber, Oakmoss, and Patchouli.
Toiling hours on your dream or career, you would need that extra push, that essence of pride and grit, which is why I would suggest Chanel Chance for Women Eau De Parfum 100ML. Jacques Polge, being the nose behind, has indeed experimented and composed a brilliant composition that stays invisible until the scent approves. It has the inbuilt power to transform you into the mountains or the high-density hilly areas with its strong top accords of Pink Pepper. Mixing it with floral notes like Jasmine and Iris would not have crossed one’s mind so easily unless the explicit brilliance of creative hormones. With Patchouli, musk, and vanilla, this female odor is the perfect crisp extravaganza you would love to have in your bag every day.
Another one I loved curating would be the Mark Des Vince Aqua Man for Men Eau De Parfum 100ML New, for which around a dozen ingredients were combined to attain that perfect final touch. Launched in 2010, this has been the favorite of the working population ever since then. With the first layering of petitgrain, cardamom, lemon, orange, fir, and sea, it fluctuates between the scent of a woody forest and an underwater coral reef. For the transition from a signature fragrance to a mild existing odor, the middles notes of Jasmine, rosemary, rose, lily-of-the-valley, and sage had quite a role to play. This one creation I’m proud of is a fit into any occasion, as what stays is the remnants of Vetiver, musk, oakmoss, Brazilian rosewood, and sandalwood. I would, any day, prefer a blossoming fragrance like this to sway in my office, keeping my team motivated, inspired by the depths of the earth and the heights of the mountains.
So, what say, try one of the above and let me know how it grabs your heart into work! I am more than keen to hear your side of the story!
