Finding a perfume to wear to work every day can be difficult, some workplaces have even banned wearing fragrances altogether as so many people are picking perfumes that are too strong. Sticking to a scent that is subtle, professional and light is the best option for the office.
So, having smelled our way around the CGD HQ, we’ve compiled a list of our favorite workwear perfumes, so you can smell gorgeous at the office too!
A woody floral fragrance
This is a classic for a reason. It smells like a beautiful garden party, thanks to the fragrant rose, peony and freesia tones. Cedarwood and Amber as base notes mean that it’s not too sweet, just subtle and summery – no wonder it’s such a hit! Available here.
An energizing scent
Chanel is world famous for their perfumes, and Eau Vive is no exception. Its unusual scent is full of energy and would be certain to get you out of bed on a Monday! It’s a floral perfume with grapefruit, blood orange, jasmine and cedar, and is the perfect fresh scent if you’re looking for something a little less mainstream. Available here.
A high fashion fragrance
Honestly, we love all of Jo Malone’s fragrances, but the Wood Sage & Sea Salt is our absolute favorite! It’s the perfect combination of bergamot and driftwood, making it fresh, alive, and woody. Available here.
A super subtle perfume
If a full perfume is too heavy for work try a hair perfume like Balmain Hair’s Silk Perfume. It’s a mysterious, feminine fragrance with silk protein and argan oil that protects your hair from environmental damage and delivers a soft wave of scent. Available here.
A scent that transports you to another place
This scent is so lovely, we want the candles, diffuser, and any other products in this line! It’s a wonderful mix of fresh and earthy thanks to the fig leaves and white cedar, and you can smell the wild fig orchards of the Greek isles, that inspired this gorgeous scent. Available here.
A smoky woody scent
Some of us prefer woody, masculine fragrances to flowery ones. Tom Ford’s Tobacco Vanille is the perfect blend of vanilla and tobacco, a seriously chic perfume. What’s cooler than wearing a perfume described as a modern take on an old-world men’s club? It’s creamy, opulent and decadent. Available here.
