Summer Office Scents

As an accessory, perfume can express your personality and elevate your look, or it can clog your coworkers’ nostrils. While summer is ideal for sweet floral scents, many of them can be overpowering for the confined space of an office; so, instead of overwhelming your colleagues with excessively saccharine perfumes, try lighter, delicate, floral scents that are season and office appropriate.

Here are some fragrances bursting with freshness that will keep you awake at your desk and smelling good all summer long.

An enchanting twist on the classic mature scent Pleasures Eau de Parfum from Estée Lauder, Pleasures Eau Fraîche Spray (1.7 oz. for $55.00) blends lively garden scents like lilies, peonies, jasmine and baie rose in a simple neon accented bottle to give you a sweet floral summer scent to wear to the office.

Even before spraying Daisy Eau de Fresh by Marc Jacobs (2.5 oz for $72.00) you’ll be dazzled by its unique bouquet-like bottle. The perfect petals on the cap reflect the scent’s fruity floral notes. A fresh but youthful feminine fragrance, Jacobs’ perfume combines notes like raspberry, grapefruit, pear, violet, wild rose, apple blossom and a hint of musk for a fun summery scent.

Named for the serene Madison Square Park in New York City, Bond No.9’s Madison Square Park (100ml with bracelet for $250.00; 50ml no bracelet for $180.00) is two accessories in one. While the actual perfume will mask the smell of your Thai lunch or even the worst subway stench, the detachable grass green flower pin can become a retro brooch on your beach bag this summer. A fresh sophisticated flowery scent, Madison Square Park is redolent of the one of Manhattan’s prettiest parks with grape hyacinth, huckleberry, red leaf rose, red hunter tulips and teakwood notes.
