I would like to get my girls some perfume for Christmas.

What are some of the more popular fragrances for young women now? In the 18-25 year old range.

I am so far removed from those kinds of things, but thought it would be fun to to get them a small bottle of something that is popular now.

Not sure of your budget, or your location, but maybe they'd like this:

Sephora Rollerball Favorites

There are five samples plus a coupon to redeem for a full size rollerball, but you do have to be near an actual Sephora to redeem.

My guess is that the things available in the rollerballs might be more popular with the younger folks, since they are more affordable. Based on the samples I get in the mail, I'd suggest Dolce & Gabbana, DKNY, Versace, Coach, Juicy Couture, etc.

A sales lady in Dillard's today handed me a card of Prada Candy and it smelled really good. My 17 year old loved it.

My 17 year old asked for either the One Direction new Perfume or Nikki Minaj (Pink Friday I think it was called). I liked Nikki Minaj and decided to keep for myself so I had to order 1D.

Victoria's Secret has several scents for $12.00 or so.

The gift set was $25 for several different scents.

I picked up this for DD a couple of years ago in Paris and she has really enjoyed it. Even though it is sold in the US now, it hasn't become super popular here. If they like to be a bit different from the crowd, this might be a good one for them.

I've adored YSL's baby doll since I was 16, and love it just as much at 28. It's fruity and light, my 21 year old step daughter loves it too now.

My teen is younger (13) and likes Coach Poppy, Versace White Crystal and Marc Jacob's Daisy. She is anti any of the celebrity perfumes, doesn't even want to smell them.

Lumo, LOL. I totally had that on my Christmas list ... in 1987!

I'm not much help - my 12 year old only wanted the One Direction perfume. Probably not so popular with the older teens/twenties.

I got a little sample of Marc Jacobs Honey in Kohls flyer last week. That smells really nice and the bottle is super cute! It reminds me of ck eternity or polo sport.

This is the description:

Honey by Marc Jacobs is a sunny, delicious floral—energetic and alluring, with a sparkling, golden touch. The perfect mix of brightness and warmth.

This buzzing fragrance energizes with the freshness of green pear and a bright splash of fruity punch and juicy mandarin. Orange blossom resides at the heart of the fragrance and mingles with the nectars of honeysuckle and peach for a note of sparkling femininity. Honey, vanilla, and smooth woods dry down to a warm, golden base.

I'm 27 and my two standbys are Poppy by Coach and Dream by Gap. The latest perfume I want is Boyfriend by Kate Walsh. Also if any of them like Twilight or into any of the other vampire stuff I received Vampire by Body Fantasies and that smells great too.

My 23 yr old loves Lady Million, the green DK one and Marc Jacobs Daisy. She recently commented on my 'Taylor' by Taylor Swift that she liked that, too.

ETA she asked for Burberry Body for Christmas as she already has the others I mentioned .

If you aren't certain....Sephora has these great sets that come with a variety of perfumes to try (decent sized samples) and it comes with a certificate for one full sized bottle of the perfume. You just bring the certificate to the store and trade it in for the full sized bottle. I got he cologne version for my husband and he really liked trying them out and I bought myself the perfume version and loved it

Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Noir (new one out), Ed Hardy, Victorias Secret Shimmery fragrances in Pink and Pink and Pretty (I think that's the name), there are also one or 2 from Rue 21 that are nice.

14 yo DD loves both Taylor Swift perfumes, Victoria's Secret PINK, and our new favorite is CLEAN Skin perfume. LOVE LOVE LOVE the CLEAN products (I found at Ulta). Also Pure Grace.

My daughter loves the Taylor Swift perfume. She's not into celebrities at all, but that perfume smells yummy.

Last New Year's Eve, we were at a party and one of her friends smelled so good. She was wearing Taylor Swift, and DD went to buy it the next day.

Just opening this thread/seeing this question upsets me.

I know that most people tolerate and/or enjoy fragrance, but for others like me who are so very sensitive and become ill from them, I wish they were illegal! There's nothing like paying big bucks for assigned seats at a show and having to leave because someone or many someone's near you are enjoying their perfume.

Sorry this sounds so Grinchy, but I get really sick!

I loved and still do, Ralph Lauren Romance.

I first wore Dior's Dune, but my chemistry changed when my ovaries started deteriorating at 19. Now that I no longer have ovaries and my chemistry has changed again, I want to try it again. It was fresh, not overwhelming, but different.

I want Coco Mademoiselle by Chanel. I also really like Light Blue by Dolce & Gabanna and Bulgaria Omnia--so light and powdery.

I really like the rollerballs. They're cheaper and let you decide if you really like a perfum enough to invest in a larger bottle. They're also portable.

I was never the girl in high school that wore the cloyingly sweet Vanilla Fields, etc.

I do have allergies and don't like strong perfume. The rollerballs also help by rolling onto pulse points instead of atomizers that drown people in fragrance. I think the days of women over spraying are coming to an end. I rarely smell young women doing that--only older women, usually wearing something really strong like Poison.

I didn't know perfume ever went out of fashion -- where I've lived it never has, though very young girls (14, 15) would wear body spray instead because it's less expensive.

I like the original Juicy Couture. Love that stuff.

I was going to suggest the Sephora sampler, though, because perfume is so individual -- it even smells differently on different people based on their individual body chemistry, so what is popular might or might not be good for a particular person.

I love perfume and wear it almost every day.

I do not, however, wear it when I am going to be out in public in a place where other people will be a 'captive audience' in a closed in environment, such as the theatre, a waiting room, etc.

I can understand being frustrated because you have a sensitivity or an allergy to something others think nothing of.

I think perhaps trying to educate people in a nicer way would go further though, rather than seeming to paint people who enjoy perfume as selfish insensitive jerks. I know that I never used to think about this. I knew no one who was sensitive to scent and had never heard of it making people ill. Once I learned that it did happen, I changed my habits.

You can never go wrong with Sephora Favorites!

Heartcat--you know, you bring up a good point. Maybe there should be a perfume etiquette. Wear perfume on regular days, but not when you're going to be seated in public, in close proximity to a bunch of other people.

My dad is horribly allergic to perfumes so I got in the habit of not wearing it when I was a teenager. But as an adult I looooooooooove to wear perfume. Just a little bit. But it's such a touch that makes me feel polished and together.

Heartcat, you're right. I could have/should have been nicer in phrasing my thoughts on the subject. I agree that a lot of people have never even considered that this could be a problem for some of us, because it is quite rare. I really appreciate your awareness of the issue and the accommodations you make when you know you are going to be in a crowded place. Many thanks!

I wore Light Blue forever and before that, White Diamonds. Now I LOVE the original Juicy Couture. I also like True Religion.
I bought my dd (12) Love's Baby Soft and she LOVED it...in fact I had one mom call me and asked where I got it because her dd wanted it! Too funny! It was Wal-Mart in case you were wondering!
