    Default The Girlfriend Challenge

    So here is my challenge. The GF wants me to pick a few suggestions for her. She is 27, a consultant and does not want to smell like every other female in the office. I got a few samples of "by Killian" and she really didnt go for them at all. I then asked her to try a few in the local shop. She said she really liked PR One million for women and Burberry The Beat.

    So using the above info as input what would you ladies suggest. Again we are trying to find a signature sent that can be warn all day in the office but nothing most girls would have.

    Thoughts and suggestions are very welcomed

    Why not go for the two she really liked?

    Cause they are both common and very popular. One of the challenges is to find something less main stream. I added them as guides to similar styles she likes. She wants exclusive! :P

    Is there a budget? What stores do you have around?

    Somehow I think she might like Frederic Malle Portrait of a Lady.

    Try: Roberto Cavalli Eau de Parfum, Coco Noir Chanel, Pure Poison Dior, Elie Saab Le Parfum but I think they are popular too.
    Less popular: Carnal Flower(very expensive), Fleur de Rocaille Caron(the new one,no vintage) and Lady Vengeance Juliette Has a Gun.

    I would go with the one's that she likes. When she said she really liked them, that was the hint bro.

    Why not go for The Beat - EDP?
    But if you have the opportunity, try Vocalise (Maitre Parfumeur Gantier): it's on the floral-fruity side, but done so well!

    L'Eau d'Hiver (Malle). It's light & easy wear, and has the honey-fruit-floral notes she seems to like. Beautiful scent.

    +1 for Malle L'eau d'Hiver

    Also, a grown-up, fruity-floral is Histoires de Parfums 1804 (George Sand) -- there's a great pineapple note....

    Serge Lutens Un Lys is a lovely vanilla lily and would work nicely in an office setting.

    Seconding Bottega Veneta. S-ex by S-Perfume is a quiet leather scent that's very distinctive.

    Safran Troublant smells great, natural, and never overwhelming.

    Kelly and Jones Notes of Wine are also fun.

    Where are you located? If you can take her to a shop that sells niche scents it will be easier to find something off the beaten path.

    I'm with cazaubon - not only is it a great way to find a fragrance she likes, it would also make a great trip out

    Agree with the posters who are saying she gave you the answer as to what she wants to wear. Why make the decision so difficult? She couldn't have been more straightforward!
