Please pm me if you/she would like to try some L'Artisan scents that I own. Well, and any non-Artisan scents, I will see what I can do about it! :wave:
On the subject: I agree, it is very difficult to select -- too many of them! First, please cross out the fragrances with the notes that she absolutely cannot stand, like, for example, no carnation, or no blackcurrant, or no insence. After that try to figure out whose taste on the board is somewhat similar to hers and check their Wardrobe and rating (hint: we have many Angel weareres here, typing "Angel" in a search box might reveal some identities!) . Then read some reviews here in the Directory or on MUA or on Lucky Scent. And the final step is to figure out the price range for a full bottle, like say, the limit is NO MORE than $ 120 for a 100 ml bottle -- and you guys have an advantage! -- if both of you try and fall in love with the same scent, you will be able to split the bottle! From these sites and if in your shoes, I would try:
My top pick for her would be Anne Pliska!
La Sireneuse Sienne d'Hiver, Paestum Rose;
Diptique Philosykos, Opone;
Serge Lutens Ambre Sultan, Douce Amere, Fleurs d'Oranger;
Parfums d'Empire Eau Suave;
Santa Maria Novella Nostalgia;
Miller Harris Noix de Touberose; Fleur Oriental; Terre de Bois;
Patricia de Nicolai -- go by your gut feeling;
Delrae -- same as above.
Please let us all know what you decided on!
