Perfume Recommendations - Looking for a perfume that smells like...
I'm 14, and I'm going to get my first perfume. My mom always said it was too "grown up" before for me, but now I get to choose my own. But I have some questions: Whats a scent that would fit a teenage girl, classic but not tawdy, girly, light but still a little sexy. Since I want a signiture scent, I would rather not have anything overly common. Love for all the suggestions.

i know how you feel i only got my first perfume at christmas last year a few weeks after I had turned 14. What I got was Ralph Lauren Cool...but everyone has that so I'm not suggesting that. Marc Jacobs blush is quite pretty, it's a little bit of floral with a lemony tang, if you are into a more natural scent.

ralph Lauren Romance smells really nice in the magazine....but in real life..it didn't smell that great. But then I'm no expert at smell perfume.

This is what I love doing because I can't decide on a perfume. I go through all my vogues,bazaar's etc. All those mags with the free smaple coupons in them and rip them out then take them to the counter. Then I have lots of samples I mix then sometimes too

Thanks! I'm interested in Marc Jacobs blush, I'll have to check that one out, too. Chanel Chance is the same as Chanel No. 5, correct? Do you think thats too "mature" and "sophistacated" in a classic way for a teenager?

Coco Mademoiselle is also a really nice perfume. It's not as strong as Coco and in my opinion smells better.

No Chanel No. 5 and Chance are not the same perfumes.

Chanel Gardenia, without a doubt, is the best perfume ever

no, it's a different perfume (Anne V does the ads) it's quite 'young' in that way, less heavy than No.5, it's very cute

and I agree with lunabella YSL babydoll is a great choice

I personally like Chanel Coco Mademoiselle, Gucci Envy, Chanel No. 5, Chanel Cristalle, or Rochas Fleur D'eu. But I don't pretend to be very knowedgable towards perfumes...

BelleChic, hi. Get something that smells good. That YOU like.

Sometimes men's perfumes smell really good.
