    Question Help! Trying to find modern oriental for 30th gift

    Hi all!

    I'm looking for suggestions for a modern oriental fragrance for my (female) friends 30th birthday!

    I say modern but doesn't have to be run-of-the-mill!

    Thanks in advance.

    I would suggest:
    Absolu (Rochas)
    Coco (Chanel)
    Omnia (Bulgari)
    Sublime (Patou)

    I'd second Omnia, and add Le Baiser du Dragon by Cartier. That one always gets fabulous comments when I wear it.

    FlowersbyKenzo Oriental by Kenzo.

    (Bulgarian Rose, Violet, Vanilla, Musk, Sichuan Pepper, Kyara, Chinese Incense)

    IMO perfection in a female oriental fragrance..not a powerhouse but a very intoxicating presence. And in a killer bottle too!

    When I think of 'modern oriental' I think of the 'fresh oriental' category, so I'll suggest Allure/Allure Sensual or Adrienne Vittadini.

    Oh, I second FlowerbyKenzo Oriental! It's soft and powdery, evenly balanced between rose violet and vanilla, very light on the pepper, distinctly incensey. I can't claim it's a masterpiece but it's very pleasant and sexy in a warm young way. (If you don't like a powdery fragrance though, avoid this one.)
    Please, spritz responsibly.

    I confess, I don't even know what 'modern oriental' means. I just go with fragrances I think of as 'current'. So I may be wrong with my suggestions...but I love the pepperiness in Baiser, and Omnia is such a powerhouse.
