Springtime Scents for Mother's Day

beauty news March 06, 2013

It's Mother's day on Sunday and we think the perfect gift to give is fragrance because it's a luxury item you're least likely to buy for yourself! That being said, fragrance is a very subjective thing, so when buying for others it's best to go for fragrances with either soft floral, fruit or vanilla notes as these are the most universally popular and perfect for spring.

For beautiful fresh florals suitable for everyday, we love Marc Jacobs Daisy, Chanel Coco Mademoiselle and Chloé Love which is a divine milky floral. There are also some fantastic fragrance sets which make great gifts, check out ones by Estee Lauder and Clarins below. Alternatively, if you're looking for a very specific scent or particular note 'rose' for example, Jo Malone should not be missed and all fragrances come in gorgeous gift boxes.
