    Default fragrance for a female friend

    hello

    i got a female friend who is looking for a perfume. She doesn't have any fragrance yet. She's 22 years old and she told me that she loves the smell of the woods and grasses when she is riding her horse through the forests. She wants much nature in her fragrance, but it should not be super-fresh. It should be a bit warm, but not very sweet. Do you have any suggestions? I don't know female fragrances!

    She could sample the following:

    Balmain Vent Vert
    Lentheric Tweed PdT
    Chanel No.19 EDT
    Clinique Aromatics Elixir (especially in the body wash / lotion)
    TBS Japanese Musk
    Ava Luxe Green Grass of Home (look under vintage)
    Jo Malone Black Vetyver Cafe
    Jean Couturier Coriandre
    Ava Luxe Ingenue
    Dior Dioressence
    Shiseido Zen (classic black bottle)
    Parlux Animale for women
    Halston Halston for Women
    Guerlain Mitsouko EDT
    Dior Diorella
    Gres Cabotine
    Carven Intrigue
    Penhaligons Bluebell
    Guerlain Vetiver / Vetiver Eau Glacee
    Cerruti Image Woman
    Rochas Mystere
    Ava Luxe Midnight Violet
    Ava Luxe Johri
    Paloma Picasso EDT
    Carven Ma Griffe
    Guerlain Chant d'Aromes
    Dior Tendre Poison
    Demeter Grass
    Jacomo Parfum Rare / Coeur de (?)

    She is bound to find at least one that fits / suits and helps her begin to discover what else works for her....

    I heartily recommend she try Gres Cabotine first, along with TBS Japanese Musk, Balmain Vent Vert and then work her way from there.

    Good Luck & Happy Sniffing!

    I love the smell of grass and woods, too.

    The scents I know that evoke these natural scents for me are:

    -Aqua Allegoria Mentafollia (minty dry leaves)
    -Demeter Wet Garden (wet grass)
    -Mitsouko EDT (mossy trees)
    -Dune by Dior (wood)
    -Bvlgari Eau The Vert (a complex green tea)

    Good luck!

    I like Nanadebary Green for summer. Nice fresh, natural, dewy, slightly spicy, and pretty.
