Jo Malone and it's British to boot. They have many fragrances and all are good. Get her several. I even wear it occasionally.

There you go. Get her a hammer drill or a table saw.

Another name for perfume is toilet water. Now just how romantic is that?

I'd much prefer a power tool over water from the toilet.

But I'm a guy so don't pay any attention to what I have to say.

Zagut, you are a man after my own heart! I already have a hammer drill, several routers, and a drill press. The table saw is DH's, I won't touch it.

The smell of freshly cut lumber, to me, is a fine perfume.

Sorry we're all so helpful, jd...

You see, Perfume is subjective and comes in many scents.

Nawww.... We never drift threads here.



Dawgluver, Go ahead and get your fingerprints all over the table saw.


And then ask him for a jointer and surface planer to show his for you.

lol, thanks for all the awesome suggestions. I wrote down the names of the perfumes mentioned and will try to smell them at the local Penny's makeup counter thingy.

Yeah I'd personally prefer power tools, myself. I had a bunch of Ryobi power tools (impact, drill, reciprocating saw, circular saw, multi-tool, lanterns, jobsite radio). But I sold them to a veteran who's starting a remodeling business.

I switched to DeWalt. I only have an impact driver but will be adding all the other stuff as soon as money allows. I highly suggest a multi-tool if you all have never used one. It comes in handy for sanding or trimming wood and other materials. Also, an impact driver makes driving fasteners much easier.

Heh. The issue with the table saw is not fingerprints, it was given to DH after a good buddy cut off a couple of fingers with it...

Getting back to perfume, go to a high end store, and sniff. Perfume is different smelling on everyone. Back in the day, I used Charlie, which was popular. I found out it smelled like a swamp on me after wearing it for a couple years. My mom broke the news to me.

I can't stand sitting next to someone doused with perfume on an enclosed space, like a plane.

Good idea, Dawgluver. Taylor Swift has a line of perfume, and wife loves her, so maybe she'll enjoy having her perfume. I'll have to smell it first. I am not sure if it's an el cheapo perfume or a nice fancy one.

DH has used my perfume, even though he's a manly man. I suspect Taylor's is worth a try. Use it on yourself first, sniff after an hour.

Otherwise, I would go with power tools. But that's just me.

I too agree that a woman's scent is very personal... for me I have two,
Wicked Wahine and Pink
both soft and "powder-y" scents. I've also found that perfumes can be too heavy and I agree with others that powders and lotions, as well as body mists are a great option.

Now, when it comes to food and/or cooking, what about a month of those meal kit subscriptions? Or snack box or cocktail/wine subscriptions?

I would LOVE to have a healthful meal, say once a week or so, that I don't have to shop for/make, nor get take out or go to a restaurant when I'm tired and just want to get into my PJ's, put my feet up with a glass of wine and relax.

Gee, could someone tell MY husband this?!

Taylor's bottle reminds me of the Sun, Moon and Stars perfume. Do they even still make it? Our big dog, Keena, grabbed DD's bottle off the bathroom counter one day when we weren't home. She either drank it or it all evaporated before we got back cause we found the empty bottle laying on the staircase with the torn off atomizer beside it.

But, back to the OP. I would never pick out a perfume for someone else. It's just too personal. When my DD and I used to shop for make-up and perfume together, she'd love the way some brands smelled while I would never be caught dead wearing them.
