I am thinking of getting each bridesmaid a bottle of perfume (about 1 ounce size) andput it in a Kate Spade Cosmetic bag. This would be my gift to them with a card.
Sephora near me will engrave perfume bottles with initials/monograms so I will do that too

What are your favorite perfumes? What perfume would you want to get as a gift?? I only used YSL black opium and Victor Rolf.

    I don't have a suggestion, just want to say I love this idea!

    I like this idea in theory but would caution you that some people are very sensitive to certain fragrances. Some fragrances trigger my asthma and one of my bridesmaids can't even be near fragrances because it triggers her migraines. If you could find out what they already wear (if any) and get them a small bottle of that I think that would be better.

    I second this. I personally can only wear softer scented perfumes otherwise it gives migraines and one of my friends is allergic to perfumes. Definitely try to find out what perfume they already wear. Or maybe go for a body spray, those tend to be less strong.

    I also second this. In addition to that I’ll add to beware of allergies. For example for me if a fragrance has a hint of lavender in it I cant breath. Often times there are ingredients you do not expect in perfumes.

    Agree with this!


    You could even ask your bridesmaids what they wear/like and say that you're looking for a wedding scent and want to know what they would recommend.

    I like Jasmine by the body shoppe but be sure to ask if anyone's allergic to flowers before gifting it.
    I'm sensitive to harsher scents so it took a while for me to find a scent I liked and didn't give me a rash.
    Alternatively you could do some nice lotions from Lush, or even bath bombs as well.

    Thank you Peggy for the suggestion.

    My friends are all able to wear a variety of perfumes. None of us have had allergic reactions/hives/breakouts/etc to perfumes so I don’t see that being an issue but thank you for warning me about that.

    If you don’t know what perfume they like I would not get them any. So many people are super sensitive to a lot of smells.

    A couple of my faves are Burberry Brit by Burberry, Poppy by Coach, Ralph by Ralph Lauren and Green(?) by DKNY! That's a really great idea!

    I like Prada Candy, Chanel Eau Fraiche, the seasonal Escada scents are usually really good too.

    Acqua di Gioia Eau de Parfum: blend of jasmine and zesty lemon, warmed with woody cedar at the base. (Internets words not mine) It's super light and refreshing. Smells like summer.
