    Can anyone recommend a perfume for a 50yo woman?

    Afternoon all.

    Am wanting to buy a perfume as a present for a 50 odd year old woman but haven't a clue what may be a good/safe choice.

    Can anyone recommend pleeeeeeeeeeeeease? Would be so grateful :-)

    chanel no.5

    I'm 59 and I love Beautiful by Estee Lauder.

    Fabreze

    White linen by Estee Lauder is usually popular

    I'm in the age bracket as well, I like
    Ghost
    Anna Sui Dreams
    Marc Jacobs Daisy
    but perfumes are a very subjective thing. What smells lovely on one may not on another.

    chanel number 5

    Clinque aromatics perfume spay is real nice ( bit pricey but nice )

    Oi who deleted my fave?

    Thanks for the ideas so far. I am going to go and smell the ones (sensibly) suggested, unfortunately Chnel no.5 is out of my price range

    try anna sui "flight of fancy" or even "samsara"

    Buy her a younger persons one, she may appreciate it a bit more than a traditional old farts scent. I don't see why a 50 yo shouldn't wear the same as a 20yo.tbh.

    what was it?

    Is she a younger 50 something or a mumsy 50 something? Think this would make a difference on which perfume you choose

    atar chumbali...or atar mothi

    Issy - Issy miyake
    elle - Yves StLaurent
    Dune - Christian Dior
    Addict - Christian Dior

    But, as already mentioned, fragrances can smell different on different people. These are amongst my favourites, and friends have commented on how nice they are, but when they have worn them after testing them - they smell different.
