Pick a scent (or a few) from my wardrobe for my next Mad Man journey

In all likelihood, I will be reentering the field of marketing and advertising shortly - an industry that I have long loved. After all, it isn't everyday that the brother of your first-grade teacher penned the line "...but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night". (True story.)

But first, a heads-up. Unless you are one of the top execs at the agency, our local industry always wears polos or long-sleeve shirts and jeans or khakis to the office. Some agencies even allow tees. And I've associated different smells - though not necessarily fragrances - with the last two agencies where I worked. At the agency where I last worked (which is now defunct, even with us pumping everything into a turnaround), I remember musty old-building smell drowning out any fragrance, but my boss loved oud. The one before that had women loving Straight to Heaven on me and the person next to me loving A*Men and its flankers.

I'm not sure which agency I will end up at, but there are only four rules:
1) It has to be worn with a polo/jeans, a button-down (think Express 1MX or similar) and khakis, or in very limited cases, a suit and tie. That's our local dress code.
2) It has to be from my existing wardrobe.
3) You can pick between one and five fragrances from my collection.
4) If you want, you can add another fragrance that isn't in my collection, but it must be in addition to a fragrance that is in it.

Prepare me for what is next.
