Wearing perfume at work; is it good etiquette?
Wearing perfume at work; Is it good etiquette?
This week’s ‘Ask Emma’ question is from a lady who would like to know if it is acceptable wearing perfume at work.
So, yes, it is fine to wear a fragrance in a business environment, but some key points should be honoured:
1. Choose a light scent and save more decadent fragrances for evenings out.
2. Alternate your choice of perfume so that you don’t become immune to it, which can result in applying too much.
3. Ask a close friend to tell you honestly if they can smell your fragrance. If they confirm they could smell you before they saw you then take the hint!
4. Never use fragrance to cover up poor hygiene!
