Typically you want to stay away from stronger/spicier scents during the day... Think about the person you can smell at the office from a mile away b/c of their cologne/perfume. Do not be them. Lighter scents tend to be more appropriate for work/daytime wear. I think I heard a general rule that the cologne should be really noticable within about a foot of your person, outside that and you can run into problems with people who have alergies to the ingredients in colognes.

As for casual/formal. In that case I would say it depends more on the event. In situations where people are going to forced to be near you for long periods (think going to the movies, a play, etc.) I would stay with lighter scents whether it is formal or casual. If the other people are not going to be directly around you or they have more ability to move around AKA away from you (a dinner at a formal restuarant, a trip to the mall, etc) stronger scents are allowable.
Thats just my opinion on the matter though.
