I have already purchased beautiful black pashmina wraps for my girls so they can wear them outside during my winter wedding, and I figured they’d be a good gift for using after the wedding too.
I’d like to get them another item, and I love beauty stuff(as do they), so I want to get them something by Chanel. I’m thinking either Chanel No. 5 eau de toilette(the parfum is out of my price range), or a glossimer lip gloss. I think the No. 5 would probably look nicer, but I know that scents are more of a personal thing. Thoughts?

I think the idea of giving the perfume is nice but like you said, scents is a personal thing and can be a hit or miss. I would stick with the Glossimers, they are usually on the sheer side so even if you pick a bright or strong color it won’t be as bold on the lips anyways.

@alexmd: personally hate chanel #5 so I would choose the lip gloss!

@alexmd: I would go for the lipgloss. Ch. 5 is a classic scent but to me it smells like a grandma. My aunts all claim to love it but I don’t know anyone under 40 who like it on themselves.

I HATE Chanel No. 5 – I find it way too strong and ‘old’ and it gives me a headache (like other strong scents). I would appreciate the Glossimers way more! I love lip products and scents are very personal, like you said.

Lip gloss! I can’t stand the smell of Chanel No. 5

I agree with PPs, I DESPISE the smell of No. 5! It reminds me of old(er) people. I would go with the gloss! I also think the wraps are nice!

@alexmd: I would do the gloss, unless you know your girls will all love No 5 (I personally do not like the scent and am sensitive to perfumes). I love the black pashmina idea. You can never have too many!
