25 Perfumes' recommandation to wear to work + 7 Tips

Hi everyone

Every woman should have at least a signature scent. If you are not a collector like me (lol), It is recommend to have 3 fragrances: one for the office, one for everyday and one for date night. Perfumes can help Boosts confidence and enhances the mood. 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. Bottom line, sticking to a scent that is subtle, professional and light is the best option for the office. So today I'm sharing a few tips along with a few recommendations of perfume to wear to work.

Wearing a fragrance can be a pleasant experience as long as you follow a few tips:

  1. Consider others: Perfume is delightful when using with moderation. So less is more. Start with one spray and apply to skin after shower and after that you apply your skin moisturizer. 
  2. Consider the occasion: Best fragrances note for the office are Floral, fruity and fresh notes (green, water, citrus).
  3. Where to apply : behind the ears, neck, shoulder, chest, inner elbow, below your midriff, wist, behind your knees, calves and ankles. Let us agree to leave the lower body part for date night:-).
  4. Do not exceed 3 spray for an office environment specially if your fragrance is on the heavy side. 
  5. OR you can do the waste method: walking into a fragrance cloud but ensure that your fragrance is non-toxic. I would certainly not recommend to do that with Alien or Angel from Mugler.
  6. Do not apply to hair unless it is specifically made for hair. Perfumes have alcohol which will dry and damage your hair.
  7. Do not Rub—Just Spray : Rubbing the application into other parts of your your body will kill the perfume notes.

So here's 15 fragrances recommendation for office :
  1. Chance Chanel EDP (or any of the flankers. I personally love the original EDT)
  2. Chloe EDP (the original)
  3. Mon Paris Yves St Laurent
  4. Mon Guerlain, Guerlain
  5. Acqua Di Gioia Giorgio Armani
  6. Coco Mademoiselle Chanel
  7. J'adore Christian Dior
  8. Prada La Femme
  9. Elie Saab le Parfum (Le Parfum in White is another option)
  10. Gucci Bamboo
  11. Pure Poison Christian Dior
  12. Chloe Nomade
  13. Coco Mademoiselle Chanel
  14. Coach the Fragrance
  15. Creed Acqua Fiorentina

For the confident woman - Boss Lady - Or to wear on Special Occasion (office party, you speaking at an event etc...). Please spray with  moderation:
  1. Narciso Poudree Narciso Rodriguez ( or just the white one)
  2. Black Orchid Tom Ford
  3. Ombré Leather Tom Ford
  4. Maison Lancome Oud Bouquet
  5. Delina Parfum de Marly
  6. Baccarat Rouge 540 Maison Francis Kurkdjian
  7. Amouage Fate
  8. Creed Iris Tubereuse
  9. Woman Ralph Lauren
  10. Coco Chanel Or Chanel #5 (you are either one of them :-))

I personally enjoy wearing perfumes. If I had to pick just one fragrance to wear to work it would be Chance by Chanel. But I also enjoy the Acqua Di Gioia, Chloe EDP and Gucci Bamboo. However my "boss lady scents" would be Tom Ford Black Orchid, Ombre Leather and Narciso Poudree. So do you have a signature scent or do you wear fragrance to work (if you are not a nurse or a doctor). If so, what is your absolute best scent to wear to work. Comment below and let me know.

Thanks for stopping by.

Linking Up with those wonderful ladies here


  1. I love Elie Saab, Coco mademoiselle and Touch of Pink by Lacoste

    1. All very great choice to wear to work.... Thanks for leaving me a comment Marie-Lyne :-)

  2. Fun post, Moumous! I wear perfume only occasionally so I don’t have very many. Thanks for linking up.


    1. What is your favorite Shelbee or what do you have presently in your rotation? I am a sucker for perfume lol

    2. I really like the CK gender neutral ones. And I have some Disney ones from Torrid that I like as well, but I am almost out of all of it! I prefer very light scents over stronger ones.


  3. I have more than 3 fragrances and I do wear perfume to work (last thing I do before going out). I love perfume and even wear it to stay home. My 3 favorite for the work environment : Mon Paris, Chance and Mon Guerlain. But my all time favorite perfume are Flowerbomb de Viktor&Rolf, Lady Million de Paco Rabanne and Si de Giorgio Armani. Depending of my mood I can wear them as well at work.
    From your list the only one I hate is J'adore de Christian Dior can not stand it. Great post Moumouss!!!!!

    1. YOu like sweet perfumes :-). Flowerbomb has no presence so you can easily wear it to work. Si by Giorgio as well can't hurt as the lasting power is weak (it fades quickly) and it's not that heavy to begin with. I'll simply advise to go a little light on the Lady Million because It's powerful. I love the Si and all its flankers as well as Lady Million.
      I don't know what's not to like with J'adore - I guess we have a tie - me Flowerbomb and you -J'adore - lol.

  4. I love Narciso Rogriguez perfumes as they're quite delicate - Modern Musc is my favourite at the moment. I also have Chance and Mon Paris, but I really don't like Flowerbomb, I find it really sickly and overpowering. It's funny how some people love certain scents and others can't stand them. Thanks for linking up!

    1. Emma, I love Rodriguez perfumes as well. I don't have any feelings towards Flowerbomb. I think it lacks of personality. lol. As you said, it is a matter of taste. Xo,

  5. What fun pics! I have just a few perfumes and I rotate through them depending on my mood, although I haven't been putting anything on for staying home, haha!

    Thanks so much for joining the #WeekdayWearLinkup!

  6. I love perfumes :) I just ordered Si Passione and Si Flori :)

    1. I love Si Passione :-). I haven't smelled the Si Fiori yet but I am sure it's going to be good. Si and all its flankers smell great.
