Absolutely not. What happens if the person who is interviewing you as an allergy to perfumed scents?
I do, just don’t douse yourself like an axe commercial
@coffeegal85: Good point.
You can totally use a scented body wash or moisturizer/lotion as you get ready for the interview, but I don’t think perfume is a good idea. You never know what sort of a reaction people will have to certain scents, and not just physically.
Peronally, I don’t wear any cologne ever. I just don’t like it.
I wear a really light body spray that smells like baby powder, and I just do one spritz. It’s enough to make me feel good, but they probably won’t notice it.
I definitely would not wear perfume or any other product with a strong scent to a job interview. A lot of offices actually ban perfume because people do have sensitivity. I happen to have a real problem with it-gives me migraines. Not worth the risk-just wear soap:)
I never wear perfume because of allergies. I would suggest not wearing it, and if you get the job, checking to see if its allowable in your office space
I never wear perfume since a lot of people are sensitive to it (including me) I hate when people drown themselves in it. My nose always burns. I would go with light body spray.
I do, but I just put a tiny splash right in the morning so by the time I get there it isn’t very noticeable.
I would never put a ton! I agree with a PP, enough to make you feel good but not enough to have them notice.
I never do. I just don’t want to run the risk of the interviewer haveing allergies as bad as mine…
I would not perfume to an interview, some people dont like certain smells and may just rush your interview to get rid of you. deoderant and anti-perspirant is enough for me for an interview
for an interview, I would stick with a lightly scented lotion or spray rather than perfume. You want the interviewer to remember your words, not your smell. If they found your perfume to be overpowering, it might distract them from your answers to their questions!
I don’t remember if I did or not when I was interviewing.
If I had to take part in an interview now I would wear something really light (if anything at all) and I would not apply it directly to my skin.
I would do the spritz the air and walk through.
I never wear perfume. I just never think about it, so it wouldn’t even cross my mind to wear it to an interview.
Although, for our wedding, I did wear body lotion and body spray of the same scent, and DH loved it… So, once in a while I’ll do that just for him.
