    Default Help me pick something for my mother-in-law.

    She has a birthday fairly soon and she loves perfumes almost as much as I do. Her favorites are Givenchy Organza, Chanel N19, Yves Saint Laurent Opium, and Jean Paul Gaultier Classique Eau de Parfum (woman in a corset). I was thinking of getting her L'Artisan Parfumeur L'Eau D'Ambre, but then someone said that one reminded them of a creepy grandmother. So now I'm confused. I live in NYC so I have access to most niche fragrances. Any help would be much appreciated.

    Try searching out Baghari by Robert Piguet. It's a classic that has been recently reissued with some reformulation and it's my latest love! It's a very nice warm floral oriental but with some definite freshness in the top notes that linger for hours. So depending on whether I'm moving or sitting still, I smell different facets of the perfume, all of which smell fabulous! Also, it's not a terribly "young" fragrance, but it doesn't smell old-fashioned either. Definitely worth a sniff!

    Hello there, so very sweet of you to be so considerate of your mother-in-law and of what she likes and dislikes in fragrances . I think that perhaps IVOIRE DE BALMAIN might work or even something like Coco Chanel (since she enjoys Chanel's already).
    Other's she might enjoy:
    Sublime by Jean Patou
    Youth Dew by Estée Lauder
    Amazone by Hermèss
    Eau de Camille by Annick Goutal
    Metal Jeans Versace


    Best of luck .

    Welcome Fico!!

    Get down to Aedes de Venusta on Christopher Street and let those smart boys help you out! You can check out the lines they carry first http://www.aedes.com/ and go armed with questions.

    You can get samples and let MIL pick out her own. Or make her a gift certificate that includes a girls' lunch (with you, of course) and her pick at AdeV .

    (You DO know most of those frags are tres chere? Bless your loving heart!!)

    Let us know how it goes!! :bounce:
