We’re back to the office! Or at least it seemed that way when the idea for this article popped into my head. Some people are back in the office, others are still remote. Some people will someday return to the office, while others will stay remote. Then there’s the hybrid model being suggested for many. Meanwhile, Team Pinappos has been remote since launch. Regardless of where you’re doing your work from, these five fragrance make for ideal workday scents.

MCM Eau de Parfum by MCM

Housed in a bottle designed for display or unique desk decor, MCM Eau de Parfum is a lightly powdered fruity, floral scent that expresses itself through smooth wafts of a bouquet rather than textured petals. It stays fresh from opening to dry down, ideal for your 9 to 5.

Defy by Calvin Klein

When Calvin Klein announced their first wholly new fragrance in nearly 10 years, most consumers expected Klein would follow the usual intense spicy bubblegum trends. To make that assumption would be to ignore those 10 years of making beloved comfort scents. With that in mind, Defy is a defiance of expectations. Yes, it touches on spicy bubblegum, but not without leaning heavily on an effervescent citrus that reminds of the comfort Calvin Klein is known for.

Perfect Intense by Marc Jacobs

The sequel to the award winning Perfect, Intense reduces the sparkling fruity flirtiness of the original and intensifies the sweet banana with grainy woods. Marc Jacobs renews the playfulness of its predecessor, while also adding gentle sophistication.
