    Default Recommendation for my Wife?

    Looking to get a new frag for my wife. I am looking for something that she can wear year round and that is around a $50 budget. Her current rotation is Light Blue, Issey Miake and Chanel #5. Thanks, Matt

    She seems to like things on the lighter side, somewhat citrusy. I'd say Chanel Cristalle eau verte, very fresh, slightly green. Also Kenzo Flower, which is a touch sweeter (melon).

    I wholly agree with cacio's recommendations.

    Oh can I also add

    Bvlgari eau parfumee au the blanc. Light and fresh.

    The new Chanel 1932 sounds like it might hit the spot.

    You can get 30ml bottles of most Chanels for not much more than that. And l'm not the only one who recommended a Chanel.

    Does anyone take that $50 limit seriously? l mean, it's for his wife..

    I'll certainly consider the 30mls of 1932 it's available for $50.

    As we don't know other people's financial situation, I never recommend stuff over their stated limit.

    Sorry teardrop, I don't mean this in a confrontational manner by any means.

    Phew, I get worried about posts coming out all wrong because lack of nuances on the web. Thanks teardrop!

    Do the exclusives come in 30ml?! This I did not know.

    To the OP, I'd suggest you try the following:

    Chanel No 19 Poudre
    Prada Infusion d'Iris
    Ma Griffe
    Tom Ford Violet Blonde

    My rec would be Love Chloe. You think a Chanel boutique would send a sample if there are no boutiques nearby to sniff?
