    Default 15 year old: birthday perfume needed!

    Afternoon ladies,

    It's my 15 year old cousin's birthday and I would like to get her some new perfume. Preferably designer, so she can buy it again herself if she wants. No expensive hard to find niches please!

    She already has the following:

    Aquolina pink sugar
    D&G the one
    Versace Vanitas
    Lanvin rumer 2
    Dior hypnotic poison
    Gucci flora
    Victor and Rolf flower bomb


    She obviously likes very sweet fragrances. Which sweet perfumes are the kids wearing these days?

    Thank you!

    I'd recommend Badgley Mischka since it is a sweet fruity melange that is made grown up by boozy notes!

    Agree with this - though it may not be what the kids are wearing these days as Scentsucker asked. But then Scentsucker was asking the ladies and as I'm not one, that's my permission to go offbeam a bit!
    The bottle is lovely, and when I got mine it was going cheeeep on evilbay.

    Bottega Veneta is very nice as is Balenciaga Paris.

    Can't think of anything off top. But teens like sweet fragrances. So whatever it is, something sweet would be recommended.

    Prada Candy would be my recommendation. Sweet, but with depth. It has a fantastic caramel note. Hope that helps! =)

    My niece just had her 15th birthday, I got her Shalimar Parfum Initial by Guerlain. I might add, I was very tempted to keep it for myself.
    For those about to stink, I salute you!

    +1 for Prada Candy. You could try Coco Mademoiselle - a well respected, widely available scent that's sweet but definitely grownup and worn by adult women. If she likes Hypnotic Poison, how about one of the flankers, eg. Eau Sensuelle? Also worth trying are the current version of Miss Dior, Diesel Loverdose and Angel (if she and you are brave!)

    Mauboussin by Mauboussin is lovely and affordable. She does like sweet fragrances but it appears she also has a sense of quality. Mauboussin is fruity but with an oriental orientation, so it would be a change of pace without being too jarring. Cool bottle, too.

    What do insomniac perfumers do to fall asleep? They count chypres!
