Just the other day some of our friends visited our house and the conversations slowly moved to fragrances. It was interesting to note that all of us had one favourite perfume or fragrance, even though all of used used others as well.
Buying a new perfume as a gift is always a gamble as people have different preferences. I am talking from experience as a costly perfume that I once bought my wife remained unused forever. My suggestion is to find out their favourite fragrances and stick with it.
My all time favourite has always been L'Eau D'Issey Pour Homme by Issey Miyake.I have used others but I will have at least one bottle always. Come to think of it, it was actually the sleek bottle with the frosted glass that attracted me. My wife on the other hand has always loved the DaliFlor, Salvador Dali. Unfortunately this Eau de Toilette is so hard to find. I was really happy to find this perfume for her on Sendmescent.com, a UK perfume website. Best of all, I found out that it was £13.25 cheaper than the retail price on their site. In fact all the perfumes I checked were cheaper then the prices at high street stores. I definitely recommend this site.
