Hmm, it seems to me that Creed's general aesthetic doesn't match up especially well with the things you seem to like. I think the ones that are closest to your preferences might be Royal Oud, Acier Aluminium, and Royal English Leather.

My SOTE is TF Japon Noir. This is one I used to like very much, but lately it's left me a bit cold. I'm not sure what's changed.

Scent newbie question here- aren't you worried that your choice of cologne might be found unpleasant to some of those around you? I've always wanted to wear cologne/aftershave but haven't for this very reason... there seems so many people out there picky about scents (especially girls), that the possible advantage seems outweighed by the risk...

Or maybe there's some scents out there with universal appeal?

Theres no such thing as scents with universal appeal, there are office safe scents.  Generally clean soapy citrus scents almost akin to the kind of clean smell you get from laundry powder.  These are hard pressed to offend anyone and usually settle pretty quick into a skin/low projection scent so for both those reasons considered work safe.

 

The main issue with cologne/perfume is just to be mindful of how much it projects, eg wearing Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille in the summer time is a dangerous affair as its already a projection monster, combined with heat, your colleagues will smell you at 50 paces.  During cooler months though one spray to the chest under your shirt gives a very pleasant amount and level of projection.   In a rush I have made the mistake before of doing one to the wrist and neck and was informed by a colleague (who previously complimented on it when worn with a light touch) that it was suffocating, off to the bathroom I went to wash where sprayed, I lived and learnt and the world kept spinning.

 

Ill take a light touch and a nice fragrance over being able to smell peoples personal body scent.

There's always a risk that someone won't like what you're wearing. There's just no way around that. I have dealt with that problem mainly by not caring. If someone doesn't like the fragrance I'm wearing, they'll survive. The fact is, though, that I wear a lot of "challenging" fragrances, and it's hardly ever happened that someone expressed displeasure about it. In many years of daily fragrance wearing, I can think of maybe two or three occasions where someone said they didn't like what I was wearing. And as Osiris2012 said, it's important not to overspray. I think when people complain, that's usually what they're complaining about.

I am wearing Divine by Divine as my evening scent. It is a classic, somewhat old fashioned feminine white floral.
