It is not wrong to say that it is hard to get a woman a gift because you can make the wrong gift choice very easily. However, there are safe bets when it comes to buying gifts and one of them is perfumes. There are so many amazing choices for perfumes on the market so how to choose the right one? The answer is to go for something classic and that would work for anybody. Here are the top 5 perfumes picks that would make great gifts for the lady in your life.
Chanel – Coco Mademoiselle Eau De Parfum Spray
When choosing perfume as a gift, you have to consider every aspect of the fragrance, from the scent of the perfume, all the way to the bottle. There is no doubt that iconic perfumes come packaged in equally iconic bottles and there is no perfume that is more iconic than a Chanel perfume. This Coco Mademoiselle perfume is reminiscent of the classic Chanel No. 5 perfume but has been updated to suit the modern woman.
Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle is a much-loved perfume and many fans consider the fragrance one of their top favourites. The perfume is an amber floral fragrance that features top notes of orange and bergamot, middle notes of roses and jasmine, as well as base notes of vanilla and white musk. Overall, this perfume is great as a night fragrance but holds beautifully throughout the entire day.
Dior – Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet Eau de Toilette
You will never go wrong with choosing a floral fragrance as a gift for someone because it is a scent that works great for women of all ages. It is also rather a versatile scent so it will be great, no matter the time or season. There are so many great floral fragrances to choose from but one great example would be the Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet perfume by Dior.
Just like the name suggests, this perfume smells like a bouquet of freshly bloomed flowers because it is filled with the floral essences of peonies and roses. The perfume also has a base note of white musk with top and middle notes of mandarin, apricot, and peach. This elegant fragrance would also make a great gift for teenagers because it is not too strong nor too mature.
Philosophy – Amazing Grace Eau de Toilette
Many people think that perfumes need to be strong but not everyone can handle strong smells, even if it is from a perfume. If you think that the person you are buying a gift for is not a fan of strong perfumes, you can try gifting them with something gentler and soft. A perfume like the Amazing Grace from Philosophy is subtle and delicate, making it the perfect scent to wear every day.
The notes that go into creating this gentle fragrance include orange, grapefruit, and soft white florals. Overall, Philosophy’s Amazing Grace perfume is not too overwhelming and is clean and light. The perfect choice for the young woman in your life who prefers delicate scents over strong ones.
Lancôme – La Vie Est Belle Eau De Parfum
Perfumes can change up your mood or express how you feel so if you want to gift someone a perfume, it is best to understand them first. Some might like musky scents to make them feel confident while others might like floral fragrances to show that they are calm and collected individuals. For someone carefree and light-hearted, you can choose to gift them this Lancôme perfume.
The concept of the La Vie Est Belle perfume is based on the idea of simple and natural beauty, which is why the perfume has a wonderfully floral and fruity scent. The perfume features top notes of blackcurrant and pear, while the middle notes are iris, jasmine, and orange blossom. All of these notes mingle with base notes of praline, vanilla, patchouli, and tonka bean to create a powdery and sweet perfume.
Jo Malone – Wood Sage & Sea Salt Cologne
Sometimes, keeping it natural and simple is the way to go and the same can be said for perfumes. Floral and sweet scents may not be the choice for every woman so if you want to play it safe, get a perfume that is straightforward and earthy. Get something like the Jo Malone Wood Sage & Sea Salt cologne.
This Jo Malone perfume is composed of two simple notes – sea salt and sage, to create a sophisticated and natural fragrance. There are also notes of ambrette seed, red algae, and grapefruit, which seems like an odd combination of scents but it works brilliantly together in this perfume. Overall, this aromatic fragrance is fresh yet complex, making it unlike any other perfume. While Jo Malone perfumes are popular amongst women, they are unisex which means they work great on both men and women.
