One of the easiest yet most impactful gifts you can give your nearest and dearest friends during the holidays is perfume—provided you know what you're doing, of course. Surprising your gal pal or your younger sister with a scent to call her own indicates a thoughtfulness in your part. It means you've taken the time to find that one fragrance that captures her personality the best.
But shopping for scents can be quite intimidating, what with countless bottles to choose from and salespersons breathing down your neck. Fortunately for you, we've taken out the guesswork that comes with this kind of task. We've listed over 40 perfumes and colognes and divided them into seven distinct personalities. The only thing left for you to do, then, is to zero in on one, purchase, and wrap in pretty paper. You're welcome!
