Do you like to receive a bottle of perfume as a present?
Do you discreetly mention that you’d like a particular perfume for your birthday, anniversary etc?
Which perfumes have you received as a present and were you pleased with them?
Do you regularly buy fragrance as a gift for other people?
Which perfumes have you bought for others and were they appreciated?
Or do you think perfume is too personal to choose for someone else?
I like to give perfume as a present but only to my nearest and dearest. I flatter myself that I know their tastes and enjoy picking out something I think they’ll like. On the other hand I really wouldn’t like them to choose a perfume for me without consulting me first. I know it’s the thought that counts, but when perfume is your passion you are particular about what you’re spraying.
I have bought YSL’s Cinema for my mother and Bulgari Black for my sister, with great success. Last Christmas I was gifted a bottle of Ormonde Jayne’s Champaca, though only after purchasing it myself with a discount and passing it on for wrapping up 🙂
What are your thoughts on fragrant gift-giving?
