How to buy perfume for your partner

By Charlotte Swinscoe

It can be hard to buy a fragrance for someone you love, especially when you want to get something new and different. So here’s how to match the scent to their personality…

11They like football, beer and burgers

If they’re totally at home in a beer garden, drink in one hand and a burger in the other, shouting at a player on the screen, they’ll love Paco Rabanne Olympéa Intense and Paco Rabanne  Invictus Intense. Vanilla and amber in the Olympéa create a rich and intoxicating fragrance that gets even better throughout the day, while the black pepper and ambergris with whisky cream in Invictus Intense really warm up the perfume. Both promote victory, so they make the ideal good-luck charms to win that football match!

22They like curling up with a good book and a cup of tea

Is your sofa always covered in cushions and blankets, with a cold cup of tea on the floor beside it? When your partner is a book lover, it can sometimes be hard to get them out of their cave – but Lancôme La Vie Est Belle will do it! The juicy blackcurrant paired with orange blossom creates a scent that will snap her out of her book pronto. For him, try Hugo Boss Boss The Scent, which has lavender to soothe and relax – while the black leather base notes will remind him of a leather-bound book!

33They like to party all night

If 3am is an early night to them, they’re seriously going to need coffee to help wake them up in the morning. Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium, with its notes of coffee accord, is aimed at the party girl who wants to stay up all night, and is paired with vanilla to add a touch of sweetness that will appeal to our party animal. And the sparkly black bottle is guaranteed to match her outfit. He will adore Valentino Uomo, a coffee fragrance that will help him get out of bed in the morning, with a calming touch of cedar wood to ground him for the day.

44They like to explore 

Ticking off all the places they’ve been to on a map and a souvenir from everywhere they go? Then your partner likes to explore! To do this, they need a fresh, long-lasting perfume that will keep them light and airy. For her, try Giorgio Armani Acqua di Gioia, an aquatic fragrance that makes you feel as if you’ve just had a shower, with a hint of mint that creates a fresh twist. For him, choose Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Pour Homme, with clean and revitalising notes of grapefruit and rosemary combined with bergamot to create a citrus fragrance you’ll almost want to eat on the go.


How well do you know your partner?
