I was wondering if anyone could recommend a nice light smelling perfume thats not to sweet. I usually never wear perfume, but have had the desire to in the last couple of weeks. My problem is I dont like strong, sweet , cheap hooker or grandma-ish. Also I dont want to pay a fortune for something I may only wear once in awhile. Middle ground price would be perfect.

Any suggestions?

Scent is subjective but go sample these:

Sephora: LAVANILA Mini Roller Ball Set ($48 value): Fragrance Sets

They are not grandma-ish and are natural. My favorite is the grapefruit one. They smell very fresh. The single roller balls are 19$ so that is not bad but the 34$ set is so cute. Its best to buy small bottles of any fragrance for consistency and freshness.

I say head on over to your nearest Sephora or Macy's fine fragrances counter and get to sniffin'. You'll find a few that will fit what you are looking for.

Wife has a lot of perfume and I always love how she smells. I'll check her fragrances when I get home to give you a list of what she wears.

Just go to someplace like Bath & Body works and try out a spray (NOT perfume) - since it seems like you don't really/maybe want perfume?
