The best fragrances for every goal
Best for:8am breakfast meeting
Get out of bed on the right side with this classic fragrance. In addition to its invigorating top notes of bergamot and lemon, it also contains bitter orange elements of neroli. Orange scents were found by the University of Vienna to reduce anxiety and improve mood, which is handy at 8am when levels of the stress hormone cortisol are at their highest. Eggs over easy please.

Best for:an all-day conference
For a standout office scent, try Voyage d’Hermès, which has unusual hints of juniper and cardamom. “It’s fresh, but with woody power,” says Nicholas Gilbert of specialist perfumery Les Senteurs. “Woody scents can boost women’s arousal by 16%,” says therapist Dr Laura Berman, a female sexuality specialist.

Attract the girl
Best for:6pm drinks
This is an excellent day-to-night fragrance: its heady scent endures thanks to accents of cedar and bark. Some Japanese companies pump the stimulating scent of cedar into their offices in the late afternoon to prevent energy slumps, plus appetising smells such as the fig in the Philosykos are found to boost blood flow in women. Your post-work drinks should prove fruitful.

Best for:8pm dinner
This is one masculine scent that you will be asked about again and again. Rich and leathery like Keith Richards, it has a sweetness thanks to fig, jasmine and neroli, which combine with the oakmoss, vetiver and patchouli to create an ever-evolving concoction that will draw her in. Beats Old Spice, anyway, no matter how funny the ads are.
