Consider Their Fragrance Choice

Avoid the common mistake of choosing a fragrance based solely on your preferences. Instead, delve into the recipient's likes and dislikes, style. Consider their existing fragrance collection, identifying the scent notes they favour and any gaps that a new fragrance could fill.

Pick Roses

Pick The Scent According To The Occasion

In addition to personal preferences, it’s also important to consider the occasion for which the perfume is being gifted. A softly romantic subtlety seductive perfume like The Lost Rose & Musk may be a perfect expression of love for a day date, while  you may want to consider a slightly more powerful and warm Shades of Oud for night-outs. Similarly, Magic Rose blossoming with fresh floral notes might be a great pick as part of casual perfume wardrobe but you may consider something more powerful like Redolent Musk to lend you more power and authority for formal gatherings.

Think Beyond The Scentand Make a Connection

As previously mentioned, scent is closely connected to memory, so it is common to feel an inclination towards a scent based on association. For example you might be drawn to fragrances that remind you of your mother or father, or perhaps a place like your school or a time- your first vacation. When gifting someone else, little thoughtfulness at establishing a link to something personal, a special person, a memory and a time, can go a long way to create a cherishable moment out of the gift.  

Consider Personality

An effective approach is to focus on the individual’s personality traits when choosing a scent, as conveniently, fragrance tends to be described in the same way as a person’s spirit. For example,

  • Embracing Minimalist Elegance, amidst the myriad of choices, there's a fragrance that resonates Amber Soir with those who find beauty in simplicity.
  • Edgy Allure: A strong daring personality, with an attitude to match, calls for Oud Nectar with its bold confident notes of patchouli, sandalwood, and oud.
  • Subtle Sophistication: For the aficionados of understated allure, Smoky Jasmine weaves a delicate tapestry of subtle tones. It's a fragrance that whispers sophistication in every note.
  • Forever Classic: Stepping into the realm of timeless sophistication, Redolent Musk is the epitome of classic style. With enduring appeal, this fragrance captures the essence of refined grace, standing as a testament that true style never goes out of fashion.

Add a Twist

While it is safe to predict what the person you are gifting likes or dislikes and buy accordingly, sameness can become boring. Dare to be adventurous at times. Nothing is more memorable than a surprise experience. Experiment with totally opposite notes like if your special someone plays it safe and classy, gift a perfume that is playful and edgy like Vanilla Cake.

Play It Popular

When still in doubt, go with a scent that is popular. If you are still  not sure which perfume to buy, you may do well to take a look at our ‘bestselling’ perfumes Nude Rose, Vanilla Noire, Magic Rose, Shades of Oud etc. This is a safe option; they are popular for a reason and the fragrance notes are loved by nearly everybody, so you can’t really go wrong.
