    Default Something like SPA fragance?

    I need to make a gift for a person who like SPAs, massages and that kind of things. Also loves 5 stars hotels and toileteries bags from business class airlines.....Thats the profile.....

    The scent must remind that SPA sensation of something clean and very relaxing. Easy, relaxing and very chic.

    Suggestions are very welcome.

    Thanks,

    If you can find it - which is doubtful - Salalah Green by Amouage (limited edition sold only at Harrod's) is gorgeous. No ozone crap, fake water lilies or mall bathroom cleanser. A very nice, round, long lasting green fragrance without citrus or bitterness. I wish it was in their regular line.

    Prada d Infusion smells like a high end soap. Clean & relaxing.
    I think its the Neroli that gives it a soothing & uplifting effect

    To me, Barney's house scent Route du The smells like the soaps they give out at expensive hotels.

    For the spa experience, maybe something heavy on the lavender, like Gris Clair, which is lavender paired with incense.

    Good quality scented candles or reed diffusers are pretty good as a gift without getting too personal, i think

    or if your friend liked with the spa thing, he/she probably familiar with this brand, Elemis, an english brand that has many good skincare products and now they have two new fragrances since this summer you might like to check em out

    My first thought would be the Aveda Men's EDT - Pure-formance Man. It's good (particularly if you appreciate the Aveda up-market organic wherever possible aesthetic) and a natural composition. I own it and really enjoy it.

    A couple of left field suggestions - others may follow:

    Guerlain Cologne du Parfumeur - very nice contemporary Eau de Cologne with a touch of green.
    Maison Francis Kurkdjian APOM Pour Homme - the most enjoyable orange flower I have come across - hip bottle.

    +1 on the Aveda

    Also Clarins Eau Dynamisante has this "luxury day spa" vibe. Very refreshing stuff!
