I met a fellow shopper. 70ish (I think). She was stylish and smiled easily. She was wearing http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.1795.jpg  Prada Infusion d'Iris and it was lovely on her.

http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.225.jpg Dior Dioressence Have you considered this?  I generally don't like chypres, but this one had me at hello.  This is not an old lady scent, but a scent of sunny, wise, optomism.  There's an expression, "you get more flies with honey". this is the honey; the smarter approach.  To me, this scent is timeless and classy.   It reminds me of my beloved, departed Mom, in it's softness.  This scent is sensual, yet maternal, rounded, comforting and inviting.

What a thoughtful, caring person you are to choose a special scent for your Mother.  Good luck and hugs for you and her.

The best things in life aren't things.

Perfume and incense bring joy to the heart; but the heartfelt counsel of a friend is as sweet as a fragrant forest.

I agree with a lot of the suggestions above. Basically anything classic.  Chanel No5 is often a good choice but my mother isn't a fan of it.

My mum in law wears http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.210.jpg  Dior J`adore Eau de Parfume and smells lovely on her, its very creamy and not offensive at all when she is surrounded by her grandchildren  glad

My granny wears http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.6293.jpg  Loewe Aire Loewe which, to me, has similiar creamy or powderiness that makes them very comforting to smell on others.

Re: Best perfume for older women, 70 years old above, suggestion pls

I think there is all about personality of your Mom. Older women in my family are very lively till the rest of their days and they ussualy pick fresh  with ahint of lavender or herbs, in example:

Re: Best perfume for older women, 70 years old above, suggestion pls

I would consider choosing some of the great classics first of all.

That is a good topic to discuss, I always buy perfumes for my Granma and she likes:

http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.7399.jpg Yves Saint Laurent Opium

http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.286.jpg Carolina Herrera Carolina Herrera

http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.757.jpg Givenchy Amarige Mariage 

Also, I bought these unsniffed for myself and they ended up in her perfume collection although I was surprised she liked them:

My mother loved those two.  (Again, the vintage, not reformulated)
