When you find a cologne you love, you want to wear it wherever you go: to the grocery store, while you run errands, to the office—basically every time you step outside of your house. But there are more than a few men’s fragrances that are super heady, and have woody, floral or earthy scents that can be way too overpowering for your colleagues at work.
So if you’ve noticed that your coworkers have been keeping their distance ever since you started dousing yourself in a new scent, or if you’ve seen a subtweet or two that could be about you, that’s their (not-so-subtle) way of telling you that you may need to make a change.
