Maybe another one I can think of is Opium, the one with the tall glass bottle and red cap. The only thing I'm a bit skeptical about is even though it's kind of a going-out or 'party' scent, it can't be something too loud or brash or too sweet, wouldn't at all complement her personality.
It seems you might be leaning to one of the Diors, they are quite lovely Opium is quite a spicy heady scent if she use to wear Green Tea maybe she would prefer something softer, fresh and pretty?
Chanel no. 19 is one of my favourites for a more understated fragrance maybe Coco for something spicier. From Dior Poison (spicy, sweet) or Hypnotic Poision (sweet, almondy, vanilla) more might do well, both very feminine. Guerlain l'Instant is also a lovely choice (floral, vanilla, powdery).
I should note that I'm partial to Chanels and Guerlains. I'm sure that she will enjoy whatever you pick, just that you put this much effort and thought is great to see. Good luck.
