Why Perfume Is the Perfect Gift

Why Perfume Is the Perfect Gift

With endless gift options, you might ask yourself why you should buy a perfume? Well, a perfume is not only a versatile item that has many possible uses – like wearing, freshening up laundry or creating an ambiance in your home. It’s an emotional gift as well.

Giving someone a perfume shows that you have put a lot of thought into who the recipient is and what they might like. It’s also something that they will wear every day - thinking of you. That’s why giving someone a perfume is a sign of affection.

Last, but not least, perfume is a special gift because it’s something people don’t buy very often. With beautiful packaging and lovely scents, perfumes signal that the recipient is worth the expense.

Now that we’ve established that perfumes make for perfect gifts, you might wonder what makes Oriflame’s fragrances special? Our Fragrance Expert Solvita Akmene has the answers:

“There are several reasons for why our fragrances are special. First off, we have 50 years of expertise. That’s a life-time of exploring what scents people really love. And during this time we have worked with world-renowned master perfumers - experts that have created some of the most iconic fragrances of all time. Secondly, we are very dedicated to high quality and long lasting scents. And our hard work has led us to win awards all over the globe. So, it’s no wonder we’re the world’s fourth largest fragrance brand in the countries where we operate. That’s something we’re really proud of!”

Okay, so you’ve decided to buy one of our perfumes. Lovely! The final question that remains is: Which one should you choose? And we’re not going to lie. Buying perfume for someone else is hard. But there are a few tricks you can try.

Start by looking at the recipient’s style and personality. What a person wears and how they act can tell you if a person likes a sporty, flirty or maybe more sensual scent. You can also use their current fragrances as a guide to find products within the same family of scents. And if you’re still unsure – go for a smaller bottle to start off with.
