    Default Looking for perfume recommendations for my girlfriend

    Hello all, I have gotten deep into the world of men's fragrances and I would like to share my hobby with my girlfriend. I plan to get her a handful of samples but I have no idea where to start. The only perfume that she wears and loves is Alien by Mugler. She also likes a few of the cheap Victoria's Secret scents such as Love Spell and Pure Seduction. She says that she doesn't want to "smell like an old lady" lol. Sorry I don't have more to work with, but based on this, what are some fragrances that I should look into for her? Thanks!

    Your girlfriend obviously loves jasmine.
    Another jasmine-centric perfume she might
    love is Samsara by Guerlain.
    Have her try Lancome La Vie est Belle
    or Miss Dior Cherie too.

    Very good recommendations given above. I would add Van Cleef & Arpels California Reverie and Tom Ford Jasmin Rouge.

    Very strong indolic jasmine, with just a touch of sweetness. Bold floral with natural ingredients.

    There's a lot of fruit in current mainstream perfumes for women. Adding Chanel no 5 l'eau, coco mademoiselle, Guerlain la petite robe noir, Armani Si'.

    Guerlain Samsara would be a good one to get a sample of.

    I would recommend a sample of Indult Tihota.
