    Jimminy. Try Flowerbomb by Victor and Rolf.
    It’s tragic to think that heroic man’s great destiny is to become economic man, that men will be reduced to craven creatures who crawl across the globe competing for money, who spend their nights dreaming up new ways to swindle each other.

    An ideal gift, I think, is a discovery set. Chanel has one for their exclusive line, as do a bunch of other houses.

    Perhaps something with lactonic overtones (smells like milk), such as

    Jeux de Peau by Serge Lutens

    Lait Concentre by Chabaud

    Milk by Ave Luxe

    (...all suggestions given with tongue firmly planted in cheek, ofc)

    Talking it over here at the house, Prada Candy came up as one to try.

    Maybe Chanel Chance Eau Vive - that's one of the sweeter Chanel's.

    Flowerbomb is nothing like Spicebomb, it's a floral.

    At the upper end of the fragrance purchase budget perhaps a fine rose scent like Frederic Malle Portrait of Lady and Songe d'un Bois d'Ete by Guerlain (though fortunately both complex enough to easily surpass/exceed/outweigh a mere rose fragrance), Feminite du Bois by Lutens/Shiseido and Arlesienne by l'Occitane within a fairly moderate price category

    For the l'Occitane scent, the nearest l'Occitane outlet/distributor may be enough and while not finding any trace of the three other fragrance brands at Macy's, the results for Nordstrom and for Douglas, among others, seemed more varied and also far likelier on budget

    I would also look at the Tom Ford designer fragrances. I like several of the Black Orchid flankers for everyday wear. Also, Violet Blonde and Sahara Nior.

    Flowerbomb is a great recommendation.

    Hope she enjoys it.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    I think OP wants us to know how she looks so we can better help him. Choice of words could have been better but I don't think it is a joke/troll attempt.
    I agree with you that height, weight and size is not factors I consider in choosing fragrance but I do look into climate, occasion, age group.

    As for recommendation, I agree with Bavard - a Chanel discovery set.
    Beauty needs no morality or righteousness.

    Agree. That was a pretty weird thing to mention. Anyways, try MFK Baccarat Rouge 540.
