Perfume for a 15 year old?

Asked by WaitForMe (246 points ) December 16th, 2009

My daughter is 15 and one of the things on her Christmas list is perfume (light and a bit fruity). Can anyone suggest something? Gwen Stefani maybe?

Are you set on a very commercialized perfume?

There are many, many online perfume places that have perfumes that will satisfy her requirements but are oils (as opposed to alcohol-based). They last longer and, at the same time, don’t “pollute” the air. Here is a site that has several companies on it.

Otherwise, something from mark might work well.

try betsey johnson… you can find it at lohmans (spelling?) or marshalls for cheap sometimes.

my current favorite is burberry (all of them), but they’re a little spicier, generally.
i also love sarah jessica parker’s berfume – forgot the name, but it’s in a pink ovalish bottle.
your best bet is to go to a dept store and try the different ones.

I love “Viva La Juicy” by Juicy Couture. Its really fresh and fruity, probably only a summer scent but I wear it during this time of year anyways. Plus the bottle is REALLY adorable. :)

I love Mariah Carey – Luscious Pink

I’m not 15 but its definitely not too old

As much as I hate to admit it someone gave me Brittany Spears Fantasy and it smells really good. I always get compliments when I wear it and it is fruity smelling.

Vanderbilt is a lite perfume item and not very pricy…

If you want to get a more grown up perfume Aqua di gio is light an fruity. Giorgio Armani has a home on teh idland of Pantelleria in the Mediteranian, and that is the scent that reminds him of the flora and the sea on the island. We used to pump a similar scent through Armani Exchange when they first launched the stores in the US.

For a classic, Cristalle by Channel, is very fruity and fairly light.

Lastly CK1 is citrus and light.

I also agree that some of the ones directly marketed to younger people might work, but by 15 I was kind of past that.

I agree with the people who have suggested Juicy. I prefer Juicy Couture but Viva La Juicy is definitely more fruity.

Probably Victoria Secret has something that might work also? And someone above mentioned Lauren by Ralph Lauren; I still love that fragrance, but not sure if it will satisfy the fruitiness you are looking for. Juicy Couture is probably very popular with the age group, but I am annoyed that young girls think it is ok to walk around with the word juicy on their butts, but that is just me.

G by Gwen Stefani is perfect. I wouldn’t recommend L by Gwen Stefani, it is way more adult.

I like a lemony scent, there used to be a Love’s Sweet Lemon or something like that.
Vanilla is also nice.

All kids like popstar named perfume, like Kylie or Britney.

Soap and water work well….keep her locked up for a couple more years.
