    Default Fragrance suggestions

    I've been getting my parents their favorite fragrance for the past 7 years. I think I should get them something new this year. My dad's favorite is Ultraviolet Man by Paco Rabanne, and my mom's is Beautiful Love by Estee Lauder(she also used to wear Opium). I would like any suggestions in the same price range or lower. Thanks.
    If age matters, they are in their 50's.

    Those definitely aren't the same price range.
    I have Imperial and it's my personal favorite.

    Maybe Sensuous by Estee Lauder for your mom and Le Male by Jean Paul Gaultier for your dad.

    So you can wear Imperial and your dad is not good enough to wear?

    Just joking

    It might be useful to provide dollars range so that is easier to give suggestions.

    I got my 2.5oz bottle for $48 on eBay 5-6 years ago. If I could always find a bottle at that price, I would buy it for him, but I won't even be buying it for myself at a higher price.
    I would say $50 is the cap, going by eBay prices. I can usually find Ultraviolet Man and Beautiful Love for around $36 on eBay, when they go for $50-70 on other sites. Le Male 4.2oz goes for $30-$40 on eBay but is $85 at Sephora. So maybe $90 cap if you're going by Sephora prices.

    I would suggest two of my favorites

    Barbara Bui for your mom - 1 oz for $14; 1.7 oz for $36 on Amazon

    Hommage a L'Homme Lalique - 3.4 oz around $35 on fragrancenet ( after 20% discount and 6% ebates)

    Good luck!

    Beautiful love is tuberos-ish, right? Trying to think about a not too expensive tuberose, but cannot think of any (save the Madonna stuff, which isn't bad, though I guess your mom wouldn't want).
    How about rekindling the oriental vibe of Opium? There's Youth Dew (a bit softer than Opium), and Aromatics Elixir (more patchouli like).

    Thanks for all of the suggestions!
    I might just end up using all of them and get something different every time for the next few years.

    Is that the one, or is that something else?
