Tell me what perfumes are currently good for a 30 year old? I'm completely clueless..

Is there anything that has been released fairly recently that is nice or do people tend to stick to classics?

I am 32 and I tend to stick to classics like Chanel. I don't like sleb type ones and haven't since I was early 20s.

I think personal style/lifestyle/brand awareness is probably a better indicator of what she might like. What kind of clothes does she wear, what kind of style does she have? Preferred beauty brands? Is she quite a "girly" girl or likely to appreciate something a bit more unisex?

Perfume is a minefield and just SOOO personal. Chloe is lovely, and Jo Malone is definitely something that a 30 year old would appreciate but it is expensive. Chanel reminds me of my grandma and most of the other 'name' perfumes are a bit ick if you ask me. Voucher for really lovely shop that sells perfume and an instruction that this is what it's for? I know I'd be thrilled with that and it is lovely to get one you actually really like / have permission to buy something so indulgent.

I'm 31 and wear Origins Ginger Essence.

I think anyone who didn't know me would struggle though as i don't really like most perfumes. I've worn the one above for years and DH buys it for me when i tell him too. lol
I would love a voucher and a note to say what it was for though as i seldom buy stuff for myself.

Anything by Thierry Mugler, it can be pricey but smells divine

I'm in my 30s and wear Chanel Coco Mademoiselle or Dior Addict. Have done since my early 20s.

Viktor and Rolf Flowerbomb is popular.

Age doesn't have much to do with scent preferences once you are out of the Impulse years.

Do you know any scents that she usually wears? What's your budget? Jo Malone do a gorgeous box set of miniatures for £70.
