Life bottled: office scents

By Lauren Carbran

Been meaning to clear your desk in the office? Yep, we know you too well. Well, now’s the time, guys! Why? You’ll want to make room for your new Monday to Friday scents. They’ll make 3pm smell so much better…


Everyone hates Mondays, right? Well, not when you smell beaut. So start the week as you mean to go on with these floral perfumes. Important meetings, that big presentation or the interview you’ve been waiting for? We promise you’ll smell confident and sophisticated with Armani Si for her, a classic blend of bergamot and vanilla,  or Armani Code Profumo for him, which mixes mandarin and nutmeg to kick-start your day ahead. Yes, please!


You survived Monday. Congrats. And Tuesday calls for a let’s-get-down-to-business scent. Keep it classic with these office must-haves, which were made for Tuesdays. You’ll love the seriously smart Marc Jacobs Lola for her and Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male Essence De Parfum for him. No one will mess with you when you smell like pink peppercorn and grapefruit (thanks, Marc Jacobs). And the notes of tonka bean and vanilla in Le Male Essence De Parfum are sure to leave a lasting impression.


Get through hump day in style with these spesh office scents, perfect for your countdown to the weekend. Here’s how you do Wednesdays. For girls, try Jimmy Choo Illicit, a punchy fragrance with notes of ginger and rose. Guys should opt for Prada L’Homme Prada, which is highly masculine (don’t say you haven’t been warned) with notes of pepper, amber and geranium. Your Wednesday never smelt so good…


Rejoice! It’s nearly the weekend. And you must know by now that Thursday is the new Friday. So get friendly with these energising scents – after all, who needs coffee to get through the day when you can smell like it? Say hello to Marc Jacobs Divine Decadence for her, which oozes honeysuckle and champers (yes really). If that doesn’t wake you up at work, nothing will. We’ve got an addiction for you boys, too – Prada Luna Rossa Sport, which is basics your saviour from 9 to 5, thanks to its notes of bergamot and lavender.


It’s #Friyay! Roll on the weekend. And as there are only a few hours till you can party, you’ll want to celebrate with these scents. If you have a sweet tooth, you’ll love Viktor & Rolf Bonbon for her, which blends peach, mandarin and caramel. And won’t that adorable bottle look super-cute on your desk? For guys, we recommend Carolina Herrera 212 VIP MEN NYC, which is a wild combo of vodka and lime – just the notes to take you into the weekend! You can thank us later.
