    Default Birthday Gift for Girlfriend in Mid-20s

    I'm looking to purchase a fragrance as a birthday gift for my girlfriend. I need a little help from the women on here. She prefers more "mainstream" fragrances. Additionally, she can't stand powdery fragrances and prefers the more "fresh", "fruit-like" summer fragrances that most women in their 20s wear.

    Here are some of the perfumes she owns and enjoys: Burberry Summer, Chanel Chance, Versace Diamond, Bvlgari Omni and a few of the run of the mill VS spray fragrances. All suggestions welcome! Thanks in advanced.

    If she likes them sweet, Nina by Nina Ricci and Viva La Juicy by Juicy Couture are both popular and affordable options.
    Smelling good on a budget!

    Thank you for your suggestions! I'm particularly interested in Nina by Nina Ricci and Dior Addict 2. I LOVE Bottega Ventea Eau de Parfum on her but she hates it...can't seem to get her away from the straight fruit accords!

    Viva La Juicy or Viva La Fleur. Jimmy Choo in either EDT or EDP. The EDP has tenacious longevity. Another extremely popular one is Florabotanica by Balenciga.

    You Should give her something more complex, like BYZANCE de Rochas.

    I would check this fragrance out, however, I don't think she'd appreciate me spending over $200 on it. Also, she's not a fan of powdery fragrances.

    Ok, I thought of a few other fragrance choices...(I have entirely too much time on my hands LOL)

    In No particular order:
    1) Chanel - Coco Madamoiselle
    2) Dior - Miss Dior Cherie
    3) Victor&Rolf - Flowerbomb
    4) Dior - J'adore
    5) Coach - Poppy Flower
    6) Coach - Signature summer fragrance
    7) Escada - Moon Sparkle (there are lots of great Escada scents)
    8) Lolita Lempicka

    I know I already mentioned Dior Addict 2 already, but I really adore that fragrance...you should definitely check it out!

    +1 Miss Dior.
    Coach Poppy.
    Burberry Brit Sheer (pink bottle)
    Bvlgari Omnia Coral
    Dahlia Noir EDT not the EDP

    She has Bvlgari Omnia Coral, I actually got that for her last year along with Chanel Chance. Both of which she loves!

    Oops, sorry. That Dahlia Noir EDT is fresh and fruity..as are the other ones I listed, except the Miss Dior...but the Miss Dior Le Parfum, I would say no..as it has a dallop of vanilla. I get so confused with those darn Dior names. Miss Dior Cherie is what I was thinking I guess. But if she likes fresh and fruity..I'd go for the Dahlia EDT, BB Sheer, Poppy or Light Blue.

    + 1 for the Dahlia Noir edt, it is really nice. I think Jimmy Choo would be great too, I have the perfume and the lotion, smells so good!! Both should be easily available and are considered mainstream.

    Thanks everyone, you've all been a huge help! I'll keep you posted on what I end up getting after testing these

    - - - Updated - - -

    I should also note that I will be in Vegas next week where there is a Chanel, Hermes, Dior, Barney's etc. Not sure if the suggestions would change as I'll have a lot of high-end fragrance options vs. traditional department store frags.
