How to Buy Perfume for the Women in Your Life

Whether she’s your wife, partner, daughter or mother, the women in your life do so much to make it special, so isn’t it right that you show them some love too on special occasions such as birthdays and anniversaries? There’s one gift that will never disappoint, and that’s a beautiful bottle of perfume, and there are perfume brands and bottle sizes to suit all budgets. To make it a truly special present, however, you need to make sure that you pick the right perfume; if you’re not sure how to do that, here’s a handy three step guide.

Take a Look at the Perfumes She Adores

Do you know what perfume the woman in your life loves? Surprisingly, many men don’t, but it’s easy to find out. We wouldn’t recommend asking her outright, as that could spoil the surprise gift you have in mind but take a look at the scent bottles in the bathroom or bedroom and see which ones have been used most often. You could then buy a further bottle of this much-loved perfume, but it could be even more thoughtful to buy a new perfume with a similar key note. If you’re not sure which would be appropriate, take a walk to your local fragrance outlet and ask the experts for their opinion, they’ll be happy to help.

Be Inspired by Nature

If your loved one has a particular love of nature, then this can be an excellent starting point when choosing a perfume to buy as a gift for them. Is there a particular flower that she loves to have in her garden, or that she just has to stop and sniff as she passes by? If so, a perfume that features or replicates this scent is sure to be a winner. For inspiration, take a look at the perfumes available at leading retailers such as Maple Prime’s fragrance outlet, and find a scent inspired by nature that your loved one will go wild for.

Let Love Be Your Guide

If you’re buying a perfume for your wife, girlfriend or partner, then it’s only right that you should let love be at the heart of your decision-making process. You’ll still want a fragrance that smells fantastic, of course, but you can also take a holistic view and look at the bottle and packaging too. Find one that shouts romance, and it will perfectly encapsulate the feelings that you have for the woman who means so much to you. This is why perfume can be such a perfect present; every time she applies the scent, she’ll be thinking of you saying, ‘I love you’, and she’ll be saying the same in return.

Specialist fragrance outlets have a huge choice of perfumes available, so there’s sure to be one that’s just right for the special woman or women in your life. Finding a fragrance that’s similar to an existing favorite is a great place to start, but alternatively look for scents that replicate a much-loved floral smell, or for a bottle that is romantic and alluring. When you want to tell someone they’re truly special, say it with perfume.
