Smell – having to much aftershave and perfume  on you at a interview could make the person think you are trying to hard but having a strong smell of smoke could show you to spend to much time with a cigarette in hand than doing work.

mobile phone – Don’t answer your phone, check messages, or text during an interview because this would show them that if you can do in front of the you would do it when you are doing the job.
