    Red face Harajuku Lovers: Please need advice for gift

    Hello,
    Hope this isn't too funny for you.
    I'm considering buying a couple of these for two young nieces. Most titles are quite inexpensive and they look fun.
    Can you please recommend one that is fruity (and non-white floral) and another that's gourmand? This should satisfy each individual's current taste
    I get a little confused looking at the numerous titles and special editions so I thought I ask here.
    THANK YOU!

    They really are very affordable, especially online.


    Fruity/floral: My daughter used to love Harajuku Lovers Wicked Style G (for image and notes see: http://www.fragrantica.com/perfume/H...e-G-10291.html)

    So of course we bought her a 1 oz. bottle online last year, not realizing that by then she'd decided she had moved on from the scent. It wasn't worth paying to return it so there it sits in our basement, still sealed, probably not even worth listing on eBay.

    That is the only one I'm familiar with.

    Not a fan of the house for what I've smelled so far. But in Korea I saw a knock-off brand with equally cute bottles, but that smelled actually nice, especially the grapefruit one. Unfortunately, I don't think they're easily available in the US.

    Thank you for your feedback so far. I think I might do this the other way around. See what's available on line at the best price and then research and match up the notes and preferences. That should make it a little less overwhelming LOL given the size of the collection.

    I like Baby and G the best. I often buy perfumes for my 11 year old daughter and sometimes for my 8 year old. They don't wear them much. It's all about the bottle for them. They also like perfume solids. Probably you can't go wrong. Mostly I just look for bargains, something the price equivalent of an inexpensive toy.

    The best one, IMO, is Lil Angel which fits what you want - it's ultra fruity. I always joke that it smells like a candy store exploded, but it really is quite harmless and once you smell it a few times its very pleasing.

    You are aware that the brand has a sample pack (coffret) of all 5 scents in a rollerball? This might be a nice gift option.

    Great info! Thank you! This gives me something to start with and the sample pack is a great idea.

    Music is a lovely fruity one, very reminiscent of Petite Cherie. I get fruity, juicy pears with no sickly candy.
    As for gourmand, I'd say G- but in a fruity way. Coconut and apple I think? Bit on the sickly sweet side though.

    Is it so wrong that I'm enjoying looking at these little things?

    I think they're super cute, too

    I really like Harajuku Lovers Wicked Style Love (violet, nectarine, praline, pear, lotus, woods...)
