The idea of the gift of perfume is probably better than the actual reality: unless you know exactly which scents she adores & actually uses, attempting to finding the perfect fragrance is a noble but ultimately quixotic quest.
Thankfully, the helpful Beauty.com Fragrance Finder eliminates a huge part of the guesswork by grouping their huge selection into four main fragrance families:
Floral garden-party-romantic blooms like roses, orchids & jasmine appeal to refined romantics. (One to try: Bvlgari Rose Essentielle)
Sensual, down-to-earth types tend to go for the rich, earthy notes that are rich & Woody . (Try fresh scents/terri in Zoe)
Got an energic, sporty sistah on your hands? Try something Fresh in a crisp citrus scent. (L'Occitane Verbena Harvest)
And Madame Mysterious... she'll love the sophistication & intrigue of a lush Oriental . (Sonia Rykiel Belle en Rykiel)
