Anniversary 12 is Silk or Linen, the finest cloths. If you go with silk, for women you have Jessica McClintock Silk Ribbons, Body Silk by La Perla, Organza Silk Body Veil by Givenchy and Nicole Miller Body Silk.

Linen is associated with a fresh fragrance, so go with White Linen, Pure White Linen or White Linen Breeze by Estee Lauder or 1881 by Nino Cerruti.

For men there are no perfumes containing the themes, but you can go with a fresh deodorant or soap, such as Obsession by Calvin Klein deodorant, Z-14 by Halston deodorant or Escape by Calvin Klein soap. Or just any fragrance that brings the word fresh linen or silk to your mind.

Lace is the theme for anniversary 13. As far as my search went, I couldn't find anything containing the word lace. Lace is a fine and delicate cloth, so we'll go with those ideas. For women, you have Anais Anais by Cacharel, Oscar for Women by Oscar de la Renta, Angel Innocent by Thierry Mugler or Caleche by Hermes.

And for men, though usually not associated with the term delicate, you can find very fine fragrances, such as St. Dupont Pour Homme, Cool Water by Davidoff, Egoiste by Chanel, Eternity by Calvin Klein or Fujiyama by Succes de Paris.

The 14th anniversary is Ivory. Again, I couldn't find any fragrances containing the word itself in the name. Ivory is associated with the colour white and the wilderness of the African continent. For women, try White for Women by Bulgari, White Musk for Women by Jovan, Armani Mania by Giorgio Armani, Casmir White by Chopard, Charlie White by Revlon, Chic by Carolina Herrera or Wild Musk by Coty.

For the gentlemen, some options are White by Perry Ellis, Best of Chevignon by Chevignon, Wild Citrus or Wild Woods by Coty and Wild Wind by Gabriella Sabatini.

Crystal is the theme for the 15th anniversary. Go with the name of the theme or with the look of the bottle itself. For a woman, consider Crystal Noir by Versace, Chic Crystal by Carolina Herrera, Angel by Thierry Mugler, Safari by Ralph Lauren or Belong by Celine Dion.

For men there are only a few options, these being Emporio City Glam by Giorgio Armani or Safari by Ralph Lauren.

Another option with crystal is to buy a crystal perfume bottle and have it filled with his or her favourite fragrance.

Anniversary 20 is China, but I'll go with the word oriental. You can find a lot of perfumes with oriental spices or flowers among its ingredients.

This time, let's start with the men. Some ideas are John Varvatos for Men, Spark by Liz Claiborne, Jaipur by Boucheron, Obsession by Calvin Klein, Allure for Men by Chanel and Background by Jil Sander.

And for the ladies, try Shanghai for Women, Samsara by Guerlain, Obsession by Calvin Klein, Boucheron for Women, Allure or Allure Sensuelle by Chanel or Bijan for Women.

The 25th anniversary is Silver and you have quite a few options here. For women, there is Silver Jeans by Jacques Philippe, Dazzling Silver by Estee Lauder, Charlie Silver by Revlon, Silver Rain by La Prairie, Cashmere Mist Silver by DKNY and Sparkling Silver by Chaz International.

For men some ideas are Silver jeans for Men by Jacques Phillippe, Silver Mountain Water by Creed, Silver Light by Escada, Romance Silver by Ralph Lauren, Carlo Corinto Silver, Silver Black by Azzaro, Quorum Silver by Antonio Puig, Silver Shadow by Davidoff and Paul Sebastian Silver.

If none of these fragrances seem right for you partner, you still have a lot of options if you just look for silver packaging.

The 30th anniversary is Pearl. I couldn't find any fragrances with the name, so you could go with the white colour again. For some ideas, go up to the Ivory anniversary.

Giving a perfume is a risk, no matter how well you think you know your partner. A perfume that we love on one person can make us nauseous on another person and no, it's not because we don't like certain people. The natural body odour of each person can go perfectly with a perfume or clash with it.

The ideal thing would be to try to trick your partner into trying any perfume that you are considering buying. If he or she expresses a positive or negative opinion about it, well, then you know. Some people like only one certain brand of perfume, in which case you can get them a decorative glass perfume bottle and fill it with that brand, as I mentioned in the Crystal theme.

Don't forget, fragrances are not only perfume. You can get brand name soaps, deodorants, body lotions, bath products and even candles that smell great!
