This post is really for those fella's out there who want to buy their partners the best fragrance for the money.
It can be difficult surprising her with perfume that she hasn't asked for, or getting it all wrong by purchasing a 'knock-off'.
I n fact, whether it's for your wife, girlfriend, sister, auntie, niece or just a friend...it's a minefield!
What do you do?
Well, we think it's best to go for a brand that has proven to be popular, has great reviews and can be delivered in a hurry. So, with that being said, here's the criteria to find the best option for your shot in the dark at getting it right.
The best place to find these results is over on Amazon, and with a morning spent narrowing down the criteria, these are the results as of November 2017 and then put into price categories.
According to the reviews, you can't really go wrong choosing any of the 5 fragrances below, whether they be Spray, Eae De Parfum or Eau De Toilette.
Hopefully, finding the best in each category will not only help the weary male who's baffled by all this smelly stuff but will save him valuable time to do other things instead. Counter Strike won't play itself!
