She's a business women who works in DC an meets clients daily and wears business suits.so whatever perfume pertains to this. Thank you! 50-100 dollar range

    For a start, I can recommend the following...

    Any of the Bulgari Thé scents, Vert, Blanc or Rouge (if they are still being made); Bulgari Omnia Jade or Coral (my favorite is the original Omnia); my favorite Bulgari of the moment is Mon Jasmin Noir L'Eau Exquise, a soft, crisp, green fragrance, very office and all occasion appropriate. I am in love with it.

    Perhaps one of the Dior Escale fragrances would work. Try Hermes' Jardin fragrances, or maybe the new floral (I forget the name). Also there is Guerlain's Aqua Allegoria Herba Fresca, Lanvin Eclat d'Arpege, L'Artisan The pour Un Ete, Chanel Cristalle Eau Verte, No.19 Poudre, No. 5 Eau Premiere.

    I imagine some other people will chime in. How sweet of you to want to give your mother a new fragrance!

    p.s. One I forgot that I think is very nice, and if you are in the US also very affordable: Pure White Linen Light Breeze by Estee Lauder, the pale green one. I must get a plug in for EL.

    adding...I am in my 50s, so maybe near your mother's age.

    Fresh, overexposed, synthetic, changes might be welcome. I agree that the other tea frags mentioned smell more natural, but they don't have the floral bite of Tommy Girl.

    I live in DC, and for work I like the sharp freshness of Chanel Sycomore (Galeria in Tyson's corner), but it's above the price limit ($120 if I remember correctly). If she likes green notes, I too second Cristalle Eau fraiche.

    I would suggest: J' Adore Dior EDP or Roberto Cavalli Eau De Parfum. Both feminine, beautiful floral.
