Perfume at work – yes or no?
You can argue about whether or not you should wear perfume to the office. For some, it’s an important component of their personal style and a way to feel comfortable and appear more confident. Others see perfume as more of a nuisance and worry that it may confuse colleagues.
Well-chosen perfumes can give the impression of professionalism and style, but it is important to make the right choice. A fragrance that is too intense or intrusive can attract unwanted attention or even scare away colleagues. As a general rule, it is important to be sensitive to the sensitivities of others so as not to disrupt a pleasant working atmosphere. Subtle, casual fragrances are best suited here.
What makes a good office fragrance?
◼ Citrus notes: Fragrances of lemon, grapefruit or orange have an invigorating effect and help to increase concentration and improve attention. They also refresh the mind and can thus positively influence the daily work routine.
◼ Mint: Refreshing mint flavors of peppermint or menthol clear the mind and are known to increase alertness and fight signs of fatigue.
◼ Lavender: Lavender has calming properties, helps relieve stress and additionally alleviates headaches. However, its fragrance should be used with caution, as some people find it too intense.
◼ Eucalyptus: Eucalyptus has a refreshing effect and provides easier breathing. Also fatigue and sluggishness can be reduced by eucalyptus, which can be beneficial in the workplace.
◼ Rose: Rose petals have a pleasant floral scent and create a relaxing and soothing atmosphere. They have a particularly positive effect on mood and receptivity.
