How to Buy Perfume for Women

Much like fashion and makeup, perfume is a form of self-expression for many women and something that  people tie to their identities. This is the main reason why some people hesitate when it comes to gifting perfume to their loved ones. However, with a little guidance, there’s a way to make sure your fragrance purchase is reveled in and not reviled. Here are three tips on how to buy perfume for women. 

1. Go with a tried-and-true favorite. If the woman you’re shopping for already has a favorite perfume, (and doesn’t like to stray from it) picking up another bottle for her is the best way to go. There’s no better feeling than knowing that you completely hit the nail on the head. 

2. Go with something you’d like on her. Chances are that when she shops for cologne for you, she’s picking up something that she likes and would like to smell on you. So, take a page out of her playbook and do the same thing! However, be safe and don’t stray too far from her go-to; opt for a scent that has similar notes to ones she’s worn before. For instance, if she’s a fan of clean, fresh, citrusy scents, she may not be into something deep and musky. In this case, balancing familiarity with slight differences is the key to success.  

3. Go with a luxurious classic. When it doubt, go all out. Picking up a classic, high-end fragrance — perhaps a bottle she wouldn’t normally splurge on or one she’s always dreamt of owning — is a surefire way to gift success. After all, no one’s ever turned down a bottle of Chanel No. 5, have they?
