Thread: Perfume for my Mom
She has been trying to find a good one lately and since there are discounts on perfumes due to valentine's day, I decided to find a good cologne for my mom so that my dad can buy it as a gift. 45 years old lady who wants a perfume which is neither too fresh nor too sweet. Just name the ones that you think can suit a woman in her age and I'll try them out.
Chanel No 5 remains a classic, sparkly, clean, but not excessively fresh, nor particularly sweet. If she likes something deeper, more ambery and more intense, you can try Aromatics Elixir by Clinque or Knowing by Estee Lauder.
Thanks. I'll try to get my hands on them next time I go to the shop.

Bottega Veneta and Chanel #5 Eau Premiere would be good to try.
I second the Bottega Veneta recommendation. You might also try some Hermes-the Eau des Merveilles line (and the latest one, Ambre des Merveilles, though this might swing too sweet for your mom's tastes) is light, but not particularly "fresh," to me at least. Kelly Caleche is light/leather/floral, which might be worth checking out too. (Also, what a great idea to help your father find a Valentine's day gift!)
Bottega Veneta all the way. It is on the expensive side but it is wonderful, versatile and is well worth the money invested.
