    Default Suggestions for a perfume present?

    Hi everyone, so my moms birthday is coming up in about a month and I want to get her a really nice perfume. I don't have much to go on other than I know she used to love wearing Chanel No 5, she's going to be 57 and that while she's never showed it I think she's always dreamed of living a more "refined" life so to speak, (don't think she ever had the time or money to do that raising six kids lol) so something really classy and sophisticated would be great. Thanks in advance!

    Hello,
    I agree with Petruccijc : why not continue with Chanel : Numéro 5 is great, but your mum might also like Numéro 19 - same class, more originality an "refinement..." in my opinion. Happy birthday to her !

    Arpege by Lanvin & Caleche by Hermes are both well suited to someone looking for an alternative to the Chanel No.5 perfume.

    No. 5 parfum, if funds permit. Otherwise, I vote for the Eau Première suggestion.

    What exactly is the difference between the Eau Premiere and the original? Sorry my knowledge of female fragrances is pretty limited compared to male ones.

    Back in 2008 when I tried Eau Première at Nordstom, the SA told me Chanel had upped the ylang-ylang and jasmine in this formulation.

    If Eau Premiere does not work for you, how about Joy?

    Seems a bit odd, but being classy in terms of yesterday is not classy today. I would go for

    a) a perfume that she herself has chosen
    b) from a line of contemporary glory, e/g Etat Libre D'Orange (Rossy De Palma, Encens Et Bubblegum)

    The present would be, and I know moms look after that, Your personal effort to please her. Here in finding a boutique that has some more intersting fragrance to offer. To go and choose with her, complimenting her with every new trial. The result would be a good memory of You she will love every single application then after, go figure!
