Birdy Love

Perfume recommendations?

I don't buy perfume. Ever.

But my future mother-in-law has requested perfume for Christmas. She doesn't have a lot of extra funds, so I'd like to get a nice bottle of scent that she wouldn't otherwise get for herself.

The problem is, I have no idea where to start, and Ed doesn't want to start asking her questions and ruin the surprise (despite the fact that it's the only thing she's asked for, but I digress). I don't want to get anything very spicy, very sweet or very floral, since I'm not sure which scent menu she prefers. I'd like something more neutral, not too terribly expensive, and strong enough that her rather disabled sinuses will be able to smell it.

Is this at all possible, or am I going to need to bite the bullet and make him ask her for some guidance?
