    Default Need help! mom's perfume...

    Hello everyone. Before anything happens English is not my first language so I apologize for mistakes in advance xD.

    So I'm in a hurry, mi mom's birthday is pretty soon and I would like to give her a perfume BUT last time I gave her a Tom Ford black orchid voile de fleur and she didn't like it . Amongst her favorites perfumes are:

    - Givenchy's Amarige
    - Elizabeth Arden's Red door
    - Elizabeth Taylor's White diamond
    - Oscar de la Renta's Voluptè
    - Dior's Pure Poison

    And pretty much everything a bit strong xD ... she hates "light crap" as she says . If u can help me I will be more than grateful!! By the way I live in Central America, so we don't have niche. Just designer stuff!! Chanel maybe? thanks!!

    She may like these:

    Salvador Dali (his original fragrance)

    Loulou by Cacharel which is similar to Amarige in many ways

    What about YSL's Opium?

    Or maybe Chanel's Coco?

    What about taking her to the store, letting her do some testing and deciding what she likes best? It means no surprises, but then she'll receive what she really likes.

    Good luck. I hope you can find something she likes.

    +1 for Pure Poison,
    Others:Chanel #5# Eau Premiere or J'Adore L'eau by Dior

    Some great ideas already, adding Givenchy Ange ou Demon, and Chanel Coco Mademoiselle as a couple more to try
