Any suggestions? Obviously something light and appropriate - she is getting into being a bit girly and I want her to stop trying on my Chanel

Have you tried in Zara? They do quite a good range of perfumes for boys & girls. Or if you prefer something from the cosmetics counters, but light enough for a youngster, how about Clarins Eau Dynamisante?

Best of luck smile

My 14 yo niece loves stuff from the Body Shop and the fragrances are quite gentle smile

Next do quite a nice range.

Otherwise, Kate Moss does some quite light ones.

Clarins stuff lovely but I think quite 'old' tbh.

My niece likes 'Charlie' perfumes at the moment. Reminds me of my preteen years.

Ooh you ladies are quick - thank you! If I got the Eau Dynamisante for her I think I might end up nicking it. I had forgotten about Body Shop (white musk anyone?). I will check out the others.

I haven't smelt the Hollister one, but the kids these days are MAD about anything Hollister, aren't they?
