I’ve never really thought about it…
I would wear a little bit, but be careful not to go overboard.
I wouldn’t. Lots of workplaces are “scent-free” nowadays. I know so many people with really bad allergies to scents that I wouldn’t risk it. (Plus I hardly wear perfume anyways; I only own one bottle that’s several years old, and only wear it a couple of times a year for FH on special date nights.)
Without! You never know if the person has allergies or their ex wore that perfume! Lol but seriously, without.
A lady I work with has horrible allergies, so no one in my office wears perfume!
Definitely NOT. Some people are highly sensitive to scents, and others just have different tastes. People have strong positive or negative associations with smells – I wouldn’t risk a job on the chance that someone reacted badly to perfume.
Some people don’t know how to wear a little perfume.
I’ve so far gotten through 4 interviews for the same job (yip 4!!!) and I’ve worn Lady Million each time.
Nope do not wear perfume. A rule of thumb I remember from waaay back, is what if your interviewer just got divorced, and the perfume you wear is the one his ex-wife wears. Of course I realize this only covers male interviewers, but you get the point, right?
Never wear perfume ever because I have problems with fragrances.
It is recommended to not wear any. As others have said you never know about the emotional attachment to a scent or the sensitivities another may have, and you want them to be thinking about your professional skills, not your scent!
Without, you never who’s allergic and that may cost you a job.
The topic ‘OT: Do you wear perfume to an interview or go without?’ is closed to new replies.
