    Default List your top 5 perfumes for my wife who is 27.

    Her personality is playful and innocent. She is always smiling and lights up rooms. Due in part to her personality and age I believe a perfume between mature and highschool type perfumes would be good candidates.

    What other things does she like (in perfume)? Where are you planning to shop? (LuckyScent, Aedes, Dept stores)

    I'll just throw some ideas out there - stuff that seems young and playful.

    Chanel no.5 Eau Première is good juice for when she wants to be fancy.

    Marc Jacobs Honey is a new one that I like, in a playful bottle. I like the juice better than Dot, which is in a similar bottle.

    Jour d'Hermes. Seems kind of young to me.





    Guerlain Shalimar Parfum Initial. This one was targeted at a young adult age group.

    If you want to get expensive, Sel de Vétiver, by The Different Company. My best recommendation. It smells like a sunny day, with the ocean in view.

    Almost anything Jo Malone. That line has many scents - perfect if she's picking something out herself!

    I'd probably be shopping in a department store. Just looking for the best of the best for her. She doesn't know what she likes or dislikes at this point. When I met her she had 1 perfume. Now she has 15. Five were from this Xmas. My problem is that the basenotes awards for best female fragrances include mature scents which isn't something that would work for her. I just want to get her the aventus, GIT, or dior homme of women's perfume I.e. The best of the best. But for her age group.

    Depending on how much you want to spend, I second the idea of an exclusive Chanel (these are available at some places like Saks or the brand boutiques themselves), eg. rue Cambon (floral), bois des isles (smooth woody), or Sycomore (fresh vetiver).

    You could also check the Hermessences, which are lighter in feel (sometimes too light), for instance, Osmanthe yunnan.

    In niche, I am partial to the fun and quirky brand Etat libre d'orange, which does quite solid perfumes.Examples for women would be Jasmin et cigarette (as per name), Vraie blonde (sweet floral), or, if the has some sense of humor, Tom of Finland (suede).

    here's the link to FiFi winners for 2013. The best female scents are two I've never heard of. Dot and a Kim Khardashian. You could try those.

    This link mentions 'Truth or Dare' by Madonna. Although she is probably considered too old by today's standards.

    Call me crazy, but I still think the most important factor in choosing a scent is "What does it smell like while it's being worn?". Whether it's a brand new product with lots of fancy advertising or a classic, it should smell fantastic, IMO. Who cares what it looks like on your dresser? You should be keeping the perfume in a cool, dark cupboard anyway or they'll be ruined in no time by light and heat.

    Buying perfume for someone based on age is very difficult. Age has no bearing on what a person will like.

    I have a relative who is 25, and she likes Habanita, Tabac Blond and Vol de Nuit.

    The whole range of perfume categories are so very broad. You are a sweetheart for thinking of your wife!

    I would suggest taking her shopping, or buying something similar to what she already enjoys.
