Im rubbish at perfume as is my dm. Ive decided at the last minute to get her a perfume to go with xmas present as shes all out of the one perfume shes had for years! She wants something different so must have finally got bored with the one she had. She says she likes freesia but nothing too sweet and nothing too strong so an eau de toilette rather than perfume. Also nothing too expensive and it doesnt need to be a new perfume as neither of us have smelt most perfumes out there!

Also i have little time to buy and only a medium sized boots to get it from so it needs to be quite easy to get hold of.

...any ideas?

Thanks for the link ralph laurens ralph is mentioned think ill look at that as the price is more reasonable to spend on someone whos not that into perfumes. Will go sniffing tomorrow!

I think anais anais was the last perfume! smile marc jacobs seemed a bit steep price wise.

White Linen by Estée Lauder if you can get it.

If you can get to an M & S, they have an incredible range of fragrance at the moment, most in EDT form.

Fragonard are mostly very nice, my personal favourite at the moment is Etoile:

Thanks for the suggestions everyone! There is an m and s so ill go in there and boots and will feel like i know what im looking for. I have a starting point for freesia now which is good as i have no idea what it smells like!

There's a new Gucci I think it's called premiere or something which is really nice.
