    Default Help for a gift for a 23 year old girl!

    Hi! I need help in getting a gift for my girlfriend, and I thought maybe you girls could help.

    It's gonna be her brithday soon, and among one other thing I want to give her a new fragrance. (She's only had Hugo Boss-Deep Red for like 5 years, and It smells beautiful on her) I'd like for her to have a new fragrance that she can use instead of her Deep red.

    She's 23 and she's a personal trainer, does alot of sport and when she doesn't wear sport clothes she like to go with very neat and sexy clothes! (giving some info, just in case it might help the advice).


    Any little peice of advice is helpfull and will be thanked

    Thanks !

    Maybe Dolce&Gabbana (with the red cap)?

    How about Marc Jacobs or Marc Jacob's Daisy? Or one of the Aqua Allegoria's (by Guerlain) Any of these choices would be light, feminine, and classy.

    If you are looking for something with a little more punch/drama. I'm thinking one of the Juicy Couture frags or a Stella McCartney.

    I've also tested and like the new Balenciaga. This one is a bit more herbal if I remember correctly.

    Alternatively, you could just go out and find something you'd like her smell like. She'll likely wear it and love it if it's something you enjoy, too.

    Good Luck!

    p.s.Go to the Fragrance directory here on Basenotes and check out reviews of fragrances you are interested in. They'll give you a good idea of what frags are worth your time/attention.

    She might like JPG Classique. A friend used to wear Deep Red,but also enjoyed Classique.

    Sounds like me, I like Deep Red and Classique, too. Deep Red has some similarities with Oscar de la Renta Violet but unfortunately that is discontinued.

    Strangely, I might suggest Euphoria.

    Perhaps something easy to like as the alternative:
    Acqua Fiorentina/Eclat D'Arpege/Scent of Peace type.

    My 23 year year old daughter fell hard for the Yves St Laurent Parisienne which I just got her, and her faves have been Stella McCartney, Hermes Eau de Merveilles, Prada Infusion d'Iris and Fleur d'Oranger, Jo Malone Wild Fig & Cassis among others.

    Hi, this thread is an old one - the question was posted in 2010 so it's hardly actual now. A new member has revived it by posting advertising. Please don't reply to the thread, just flag the inappropriate posts. Thank you.

    Bringing her with you to smell stuff seems appropriate. Everybody suggested something for after the gym. I'm going to suggest something fresh and light that will work in the gym - I think vetiver is perfect for the occasion. so I would recommend a light vetiver. Mainstream, there's Grey Vetiver by Tom Ford. More expensive, there's Vetiver Pour Elle by Guerlain, or niche stuff like Lubin's Vetiver, Malle's Vetiver Extraordinaire, or Vetiveryo.
