    Default Which Fragrance to buy wife for Birthday? Creed or Prada

    My wife loves my Creeds and always wanted to get one for herself. She likes the female ones and finds the Unisex fragrances to masculine for her.

    She has smelled most of them on paper and sprayed Spring Flower on her wrist 1-2 times and liked it. I wish she would have sprayed more on other parts of her body (neck, chest, etc) to get a better feel of it.

    She also has had a sample of Prada Candy that she used all of it up and said she liked it also.


    She is looking for something she can wear to work and everyday.

    I just don't know if it is worth spending the extra money on Spring Flower.
    Prada Candy smells good imo but I feel that it might be too heavy for wearing in hot weather and at work.

    I could blind buy Creed Love in white or Creed Fleurissimo (since they seem to get more favorable reviews) BUT that is risky.

    I wouldn't blind buy, I'd go with what you know she likes. It looks like you can't go wrong with either Prada Candy or Spring Flower.

    Though, I voted for Candy btw, as she seems to really like it.

    I agree with the others, you know what she likes, just have to make the decision on which to purchase. Keep in mind, Spring Flower is available on many of the discounters websites, so no reason to pay full price.

    Love in White is, famously, perfume critic Luca Turin's pet dislike. I share his dislike - but, in any case, it is not a safe blind buy. So I'd also suggest to go for what you know she likes. Since she seems to unambiguously like Candy, I voted for that.

    l agree; go for something you know she likes. l also agree that Prada Candy may be too sweet/heavy for the summer months, so l vote for Spring Flower.

    Fleurissimo Creed is absolutely divine. I would go for it.

    Buying fragrance as a gift is not a good idea, in my opinion.

    Be willing to take the risk that she won't like it or she'll just feel okay about it.

    I'd go with Love in White.
