Top 5 Christmas office party rules

Top 5 Christmas office party rules

It’s the party you’ve been thinking about for months – the one that’s more important than Christmas Day. It’s the office Christmas party, of course! But why is it such a big deal? Because, um, it’s the one where you’re ACTUALLY being judged. One trip or slip of the tongue and you’ll be the talk of the office forever. So here are our top five rules for your Christmas office party 2016. No pressure…

11Rule 1: DO wear a Christmassy perfume

There’s no better time to wear a Christmassy perfume, people. So let us introduce you to Thierry Mugler Angel for her and Paco Rabanne 1 Million Privé for him, which in one spritz will make you feel super-festive. Angel is a gourmand scent combining caramel, praline and vanilla – guaranteed to get the compliments you REALLY want from the guy who sits on the other side of the room. Guys should go for the wintry duo of cinnamon and myrrh in Paco Rabanne 1 Million Privé. It will give you loads of fist-pump moments all night.

22Rule 2: DON’T get hammered

We know EVERYONE’S probably telling you, but don’t make your boss think you’re a crazy drunk. We have a better solution: wear a perfume to curb those shot cravings. Choose Marc Jacobs Divine Decadence for her, with its hints of champagne, and Abercrombie & Fitch First Instinct for him, with top notes of gin and tonic. So now your perfume and reputation are sorted. You’re welcome.

33Rule 3: DO socialise with different teams

We all tend to stick to our own teams at work. So this is the chance to get to know those people you only ever bump into at the photocopier. Need a conversation starter? Well, Hugo Boss Boss The Scent For Her (honeyed peach and cocoa) and Diesel Bad for him (tobacco and caviar) are definitely comment worthy. And the best convos ALWAYS start with compliments…

nnRule 4: DON’T wear ordinary clothes

Yeah, you know that baggy jumper and pair of trainers you rock up to work in each day? Well, do not – we repeat DO NOT – wear this to your office Christmas party. Instead, try a classy black dress or velvet suit. And spritz a scent to match. Classy black dress and heels = Armani Si Intense. Velvet suit = Armani Code Profumo.

newewRule 5: DO smell your best

They say that if you use a scented shower gel or moisturiser, you’ll smell even better when you spritz on your scent afterwards. And we can officially confirm that it’s true. So, we’re treating you for your Christmas office party. Apply Prada La Femme Body Cream before spraying the new Prada La Femme Prada (honeysuckle and vanilla). Guys will love washing with Viktor & Rolf Spicebomb Shower Gel before spraying the scent on a night out. The smells of cinnamon and pink pepper will instantly put you in the festive mood. Hello, Christmas!
