    Default Looking for a casual, everyday scent for my girlfriend

    Bear in mind, she's 38, doesn't like fruity/floral or cloying scents. She usually wears D&G Light Blue but is wanting to wear something a bit more "mature". Any recommendations?

    Bulgari (Bvlgari) White Tea is a very fine daily frag.

    Within the D&G family, I'd suggest Sicily, which is more ambery/musky/sexy but still, IMO, ok for daily wear. If she likes Light Blue, she might like another frag by D&G.

    You are a nice boyfriend to ask advice and do your research before buying your girlfriend a new frag. Kudos!

    As I say in all my posts, when it comes to suggesting fragrances, I'm not always the best - but I like to add my opinion...
    Lovely by Sarah Jessica Parker is a nice scent, something that can be worn everyday and is a bit more 'mature' (though I like it, and I'm 21!)
    Hope you find a fragrance that she likes (let us know what you end up picking)...

    'Light Blue' is one of my favorites.

    Safari - if she likes chypres, this is very versatile
    Nanadebary Green is light, soft, pretty but casual. My favorite green right now
    Ivoire - cool, classic, daytime to evening.
    Silences by Jacomo
    Ginger by Lush - not one-note at all.
    Eau Emotionelle - Agent Provocateur
    Eau Rosee - Mariella Burani (this one *may* be discontinued - I hope not, it's a light pretty rose)
    Champaca - Ormonde Jayne
    Bulgari Au The Verte, along with the white tea mochi227 mentioned

    *jaw drops* if she likes d&g light blue, chanel no.19 is way too old smelling for her. it's a classic, but not the most appealing to someone who likes hipper smells

    Great pick! Acca Kappa White Moss is clean and unfussy too.

    Maybe she would like Escada's Escada (2005) the aquamarine one, it's very nice, and it's more mature yet fresh and better made than say, their limited editions.

    Here is what I like that is not too fruity or floral and good for everyday use:
    Bulgari - Blv (a woody floral scent, with a tinge of ginger and musky background and very classy)
    Hermès - Eau des Merveilles (one of best scent from Hermes)
    Calvin Klein - CK Be (good enough to share, it is woody and musky with a little spice added) I wore this a lot when I was in college and very accessible.
    Kiehl's - Original Musk (skin scent)

    I probably could go on and on... anyways, good luck with shopping and please tell us what you have choosen for her.
