    Shiseido vs. Lutens...

    ...in Feminite du Bois? I just love that Shiseido bottle, but what, if any, differences do you find in the original fragrance vs. the later Lutens? Which do you prefer?

    I want to make a gift for my mother: a good moisturizer-cream for her face.

    She uses Visible Difference Refining Cream Complex by Elizabeth Arden. I want to buy for her a good cream.....maybe Clarins, Shiseido or Chanel....I want to spend 80-90 usd maximum. Suggestions are very welcome. Her skin is normal, not dry, not oily.
