You know what I've always found puzzling? The perfume "recommendations" in magazines or on beauty blogs. Scent is so intensely personal that unless you know precisely what someone wears, buying a giftee a random scent is too big a gamble. Especially since I loathe almost all perfume, sans one which I consistently wear (and which, I admit, I have recommended on this blog, figuring that if a fusspot like me could stand it, so could others).
So forget buying perfume. But, you could buy a giftee something to take perfume on the go. I've tried various portable atomizers and have never been impressed. This portable perfume vessel is different. It's designed as a tiny roll-on (like Bonne Bell), and is so small and sleek and stylish you'll want to carry it around. Choose from a bunch of colors and give them out to your girlfriends. They'll love you for it.
These streamlined anti-spritzers are just $38 a pop, which is a pretty decent price point for a unique and stylish gift. Find them at Mollaspace. And, just in case you're interested in what a scent-a-phobe can tolerate, I wear Menthe Fraiche by Heeley (sort of smells like minty green tea).
