    Default christmas present for a girl

    so ive gone out with this girl a couple of times, we dont know each other very well.
    i was thinking of buying some perfume for her but i have no clue where to start.

    what are some safe options that most people will like?

    Patricia de Nicolai is a brand that is very good and is relatively inexpensive (and they also sell 1oz bottles), which seems appropriate since you've just started. I believe they have a store in London.

    Perhaps they give samples and gift cards or the like. Otherwise, their Vie de chateau is relatively light, so it shouldn't scare anybody.

    Choosing a perfume for someone you don't know very well could be a bit tricky, & of course it depends how much you want to spend... How about taking her out on a "sniffing date" to your local perfumery/department store, & see what she likes, & maybe treat her to lunch as well? l'd certainly be very impressed if a guy took time out to do that for me! Good luck, & let us know what gets picked!

    I second the idea of taking her shopping, most girls would LOVE that and feel very spoiled. Helps you get ideas for future perfume gifts also

    Never buy a scent for someone unless you know they will like it.

    Perfume is so personal, like clothing or jewellery. What one person enjoys, another will abhor.

    It IS a good suggestion is to go shopping with that person.
