The one word that describes a new favorite fragrance, BLV Eau de Parfum II by Bulgari, is "soft".  But you can't describe this fragrance in without also adding "beautiful", "ethereal" and "sensual".  The notes include violet, star anise, liquorice, mandarin, iris absolute, Haitian vetiver, patchouli flower and drys down to amber notes and musk. The pale blue fragrance is set off in an exquisite and contemporary bottle. Available at Macy's and Nordstrom (stores and online), 1.7 oz. $68.

Chanel no.5

No fragrance gift guide would be complete without mentioning Chanel No. 5, a classic. I always think of Chanel No. 5 as a "dress up" fragrance.  It was the first fragrance I received as a Christmas gift from my mom and I remember how sophisticated and worldly I imagined I would be when I wore it.  Years later, I still feel that way.  Eau de Parfum, 1.7 oz. $80 at
