Mother’s Day Scents
Forget flowers. The latest scents are so unique, it’s simple to find a fragrance to suit the number one lady in your life (whoever she is).
Your mum has impeccable taste and deserves to be lavished in iconic luxury so what better than a Tom Ford fragrance? This one is a brighter version of the original (due to the bergamot) but it’s just as feminine, with notes that include velvety-rich jasmine absolute, tuberose and honey.
With crisp raspberry, ruby red grapefruit, lychee and green leaves, this scent can’t fail to leave you feeling full of the joys of Spring. Violet, wild rose and jasmine petals add a softer, floral accent that will appeal if you want something on the subtle side too. The perfect, pick-me-up scent.
Your mum isn’t one to sit still, so what better scent than this; a sensual, energetic cocktail inspired by ‘the excitement in preparing for a moment.’ Mandarin and bergamot give a citrus hit and wild jasmine, sweet vanilla and musk add warmth.
Your mum is on Instagram, wears boyfriend jeans and loves Girls - she’s that cool - so a celebrity scent or bog standard floral fragrance just won’t cut it. Instead, buy her this; with tuberose absolute, rose de Mai, jasmine and black musk, it’s a velvety scent that’s uplifting and unique.
Your mum is loyal and trustworthy and has the sort of timeless wardrobe that never dates, so for her, only a modern take on a floral fragrance will do. With Turkish rose, geranium and fresh freesia, this is akin to the freshest floral bouquet but black pepper, wood and honey add an edge.
With notes that include freesia, peony, Turkish rose and jasmine, it’s not surprising that, with one spritz of this scent, you’re taken to the prettiest British garden, where wildflowers and hedgerows are in full bloom. The perfect perfume to evoke a love of the outdoors.
