“If you’re going on an interview, you should be mindful of your fragrance choice,” warns Patti Kapla,’s resident scent expert.  “Some people have very sensitive noses, and if your scent is offending your interviewer, you risk not being hired or being invited back for round two.”
So what’s an unemployed gal – or guy! – to do?!
Patti recommends that women opt for a light scent like Dolce & Gabbana’s Light Blue – which offers a fresh and citrus scent.  DKNY’s Be Delicious features pleasant notes of grapefruit, cucumber and apple.  Marc Jacobs Cotton features a light, outdoorsy scent with notes of cotton flower, cotton musk and white peach. 
For men, Patti advises that notes of woods, musk, spice, leather are wearable.  Choose scents including Cool Water by Davidoff, a casual outdoors-y scent; Acqua Di Gio by Giorgio Armani, which offers a transparent, aromatic and woodsy aroma; and Bvlgari Blv, which exudes notes of juniper berries, sandalwood, cedar and galanga.
Fragrance notes to avoid:  anything too sweet or too fruity.  Also, skip scents that smell too much like grass, food or are overbearing, including those with heavy floral or oriental notes.
