Fragrance Gifts Buying Guide

Fragrances  make great gifts, no matter what the occasion. Whether your looking for a Christmas gift for your husband or a birthday gift for your best friend, these fragrances make excellent gifts. Choosing a fragrance as a gift, however, can be very intimidating. What if this is too strong for her taste? What if this is too flowery for his taste? Although there is no absolute way to know if your fragrance gift will be a hit or miss, we have plenty of tips to increase the odds that your gift will be a smash hit. 

Some Things to Keep in Mind

  • Fragrance preferences vary: Fragrance is actually very personal and therefore, it is probably a bad idea to purchase a fragrance without any background research on the individual's tastes. It is, however, a good idea to gain knowledge on what type of fragrance the receiver of the gift likes or if possible, which fragrance they are currently using. Once you have this information, it is a safe bet to get a fragrance of a similar type, whether its sweet, woody, or citrusy. Lotions or bath products from the same line that they currently use can also be a great present since it is a guarantee that the scent is one they like. Remember, the same fragrance varies depending on the wearer, therefore, just because it smells great on you doesn't mean it will on your friend.
  • You get what you pay for: Before automatically reaching for the cheapest fragrance on the shelf, it is important to know what you are getting for that cheap price tag. Some fragrances are less expensive than others because they use manmade odorants, which are cheaper to manufacture. Fragrances made with natural odorants are richer in scent and usually lasts longer once aplied. If you are concerned about the quality of the fragrance, then it might be worth it to pay the extra money.
