    Question Help to find! Fragrance for mom (60+ age)

    Hey Ladies,

    My first post on female section... Id like to hear your suggestions. My mom is not working anymore, you know, shes 65 years old.. and im looking a fragrance for her as mothers day will be here where I live in the beginning of May. Id like to buy her a gift. A fragrance for spring/summer or all seasons. It doesn't have to be like extra long lasting or project a lot, but id like to find something good. well for mom! id prefer something she wouldn't need to reapply 3 times a day.

    I would prefer something that sells in little amount (ive seen chanel has 20 ml bottles) as she wont be using it everyday

    She loves Estee lauder Knowing for winter!

    im looking something that way, just for spring summer or all seasons prefer the little amount option of fragrance

    Its mainly for meeting friends, going to the theatre or something....

    Thank you so much

    How about a Tauer (50 ml) like Rose Chyprée or L'Air du Desert Marocain
    Or have a look at the house of Lush (10 ml)
    You could buy her two, for instance All Good Things and Karma.
    Atelier Cologne has 30 ml bottles, the choice is big here: Rose Anonyme, perhaps?...
    A travelset might be nice as well!
    Good luck!

    Chanel N° 5 Eau Premiere might be something your mother would love. It’s classic and lovely, but lighter than the regular N°5, with less aldehydes, so she can use it for daytime.

    I gotta go with the one I’m wearing today! Chanel No.19. It’s obviously a classic, and appropriate for all women of any age. It’s woody, fresh, a bit floral, but not overly feminine, and I think perfect for spring daytime or evening wear. Good luck on the hunt!

    Eau Premiere was also one that came to mind! Great pick.

    Maybe YSL Rive Gauche for a lighter green rose chypre than Knowing?

    Givenchy III, Chanel Cristalle and YSL Y are also very lovely for warmer weather.

    What a thoughtful son you are! Fig-Tea by Nicolai is lovely in summer, & they do smaller-sized bottles & travel sprays.

    Do let us know what you pick!

    I agree on the suggestions so far. And how about Agent Provicateur. The original?

    Any budget?
    Knowing is a classic, warm rose chypre. I agree with the fresher Chanel, like No 19 or, perhaps even better since it's a chypre, Cristalle.

    With my limited knose-ledge (!) of female fragrance, this was one that stood out on a recent sniff around with a list of must smells. Liked it more than No.5.
    Plus its a bit fancy so a lovely gift! What lady wouldn't want a fancy bottle of Chanel on their dresser!?

    Perhaps also White Linen and/or Spellbound among further Estee Lauder scents, Miss Dior, Escale a Portofino and/or Dolce Vita among Dior scents, Feminite du Bois among the Lutens, Critsalle among the Chanel ones could be worth (re) testing before a purchasing decision.

    I like the No. 19 idea. The EDP is nicely rosy. Rive Gauche is another great suggestion.

    Or maybe something more modern like Bvlgari Rose Essentielle or Stella. The Bvlgari comes in purse spray size.
    My only regrets in life are the people I haven't stood up for,
    and the perfumes I've thrown away.

    Vivienne Westwood Boudoir and Issey Miyake are two my mother wears. They're light and delightful, someone else recommended Pleasures by Estee Lauder and that's a great recommendation as well
