Girls who love fragrances know how awkward it is when we encounter someone whose nose is sensitive to our scent. This gets more uncomfortable when it occurs in the professional setting, around bosses and clients.
To always leave a good lasting impression at work, try spritzing on a muted perfume. A light scent can still get you positive comments while not being overpowering. And we guarantee, it will still give you that confident boost as you stride around the office.
For options, we found 7 fragrant perfumes that give a soft whiff to the nose. What's more, they all have a lingering power that can keep you motivated even on busy days. Let's get on with our list, shall we?
