I have a 13 years old daughter. She loves fragrances but has almost no experience with them. And I am interested in the topic, but I only have a little experience about men fragrances.
Last year I gave her as a gift her first eau de toilette, "Wild" by Ralph Lauren (it was a recommendation given to me by a saleswoman in a shop). I was lucky that she liked it very much -or at least she told me so-, specially that strawberry scent. But she really doesn´t know what she really prefers and I don´t know how to start giving her the opportunity to find it out.
I think that getting samples is not option for us. We live in Buenos Aires (Argentina) and usually at the shops they give you a random small sample just when you purchase another fragrance. Or they give you that small piece of paper with the fragrance that they are promoting in the street when you pass by the shop. You need to enter the shop and ask for a specific fragance in order to test them on paper, and you know what happens after two or three of them, you dont know what are you smelling any longer...
So I will thank any suggestions about widely available -remember were we live-fragrances appropriate for a 13 year old girl that would like to find her own way in this wonderful fragances world.
