#Internationalwomensday 5 reasons perfume makes for a perfect gift

  • Published:

Some people might still think that a bouquet of flowers is all they need to gift that special woman in their life. But a glam girl will tell you, those people are pretty clueless. In this day and age, a floral arrangement might be impressively beautiful, but it has inevitably become a cliché and a thoughtless gift idea.

Getting perfume changes this all up. Perfume has  been a popular gift for ages, primarily because it is such an ideally balanced gift. It is fashionable but functional it is also intimate yet discreet

Perfume is both luxurious and mainstream and with all of its dualities, it makes a great gift for every woman and every occasion.

Here are reasons you should choose perfume as a gift for that strong, phenomenal woman in your life this International Women’s Day.

Perfume are beautifully packaged.

A beautiful gift for a beautiful person. A lot of time is put into the design and make of perfume bottles and also the packaging. So when buying perfume it is not only because of the fragrance but also because of how beautifully presented they are.

Perfume is a luxury item

Perfume is a special gift because it is something people don’t buy very often. With beautiful packaging and lovely scents, perfumes signal that the recipient is worth the expense. And when someone takes the time to buy a special gift of perfume, it can feel very opulent.

Perfume shows attention to detail

With at least hundreds of perfume companies and scents, and even more variations of perfumes, giving someone a perfume shows that you have put a lot of thought into who the recipient is and what they might like.

Perfume is a budget item

While perfume is seen as a luxury item, there is a perfume for every budget. Large, expensive bottles of designer perfumes make for impressive gifts, but sample-sized bottles are also an option. While designer perfumes are more expensive, it is easy to find similar scents in a more affordable price range, and more simple scents are also often great for someone on a budget. For those who are adventurous, independent perfume designers or new scents can be less expensive than classic fragrances, and finding new manufacturers or new scents can be an exciting experience.

Perfume is the international pill for happiness

The reason we feel happy when we wear perfume is heavily dependent on an individual, but can range from the presence of pheromones, memories the scent invokes, a feeling of escape, and the ability to show individuality through fragrances.
