    Default Recommendation for wife's perfume

    Hi,

    My wife currently uses Aqua Di Gioia and Chance by chanel, She finds most of the other perfumes too flowery and it causes her headaches.

    Ia m trying to find out what other good perfumes are there that she can try at Sephora which are close or have the same notes as Chance by Chanel and Aqua Di Gioia.

    I need 1 recommendation for her to work at work and the other for casual hangout with friends.

    To me, several of the Cartier fragrances, especially Eau de Cartier, remind me of the Armanis. And Chance is fruity/ floral...wow, there are quite a few of those. Has she smelled J'Adore?
    Or Cristalle Eau Fraiche by Chanel?

    Good luck, sounds like you have your work cut out for you.

    Chance is sort of light sweetish oriental. Perhaps Shalimar edt then?

    Acqua di Gioia is light citrusy fruity. I second the Eau de Cartier (in their various forms). Kenzo Flower, despite the name, is also light and slightly sweet, and not particularly floral in the usual sense. Even lighter, Guerlain Aqua allegoria pamplelune, which has a nice grapefruit note, though it is not particularly long lasting.

    I also like Cristalle a lot, but I find it different than the others: it's intensely green. Which may be ok for your wife.

    Well, Guess Gold is pretty much the sister of Chanel Chance. I like both. Guess Gold is discontinued but you can find it on Ebay. I'd really recommend that one..very similar. A light, citrusy fruity..Burberry Brit Sheer, Dior Addict 2, Ange Ou Demon Le Secret are some ones that come to mind.

    Chanel No. 5 Eau Premiere. A wonderful floral spin on the classic.
