Going to get Mom some Mother’s Day flowers this year? Why not pick up her favourite floral in a perfume instead?
Moms—and indeed most women—like getting a bouquet of fresh, beautiful flowers. And who could blame them? Mother’s Day flowers are a tradition. The fresh soft colours, the lingering subtle scent, the reminder that spring is really, truly here—what’s not to love?
This year we’re recommending you get a bouquet a little more lasting than that freshly picked go-to. Instead try one of these new perfumes to get your Mom her floral fix.
Try the new Body Shop British Rose Eau de Toilette. Notes of bergamot, rose and peony swirl and mingle for a classic fresh rose perfume that won’t break the bank.
$20 (100 ml), www.thebodyshop.ca
Try Nest Citrine. Freesia accompanies lemon blossom, dew drop, woods and lotus flower for a sunny scent that will put a smile on your face.
$78 (5o ml), www.sephora.com
Try Aerin Mediterranean Honeysuckle. Although not the namesake floral in this spritz, the lily of the valley is a nice, fresh touch to honeysuckle, grapefruit and bergamot that will take you to the coast even if you don’t leave your backyard.
$145 (50 ml), www.nordstrom.com
Try Prada Candy Kiss. More well known for their gourmand leanings, the Prada Candy collection introduces the new Prada Candy Kiss—where orange blossom and vanilla create a sweet, floral scent.
$88 (50 ml), www.sephora.com (not available until June 1st, 2016—make this an IOU for Mom)
Try Narciso Rodriguez Poudree. A heart of jasmine is mixed with notes of rose and black and white cedar for a powdery, smooth floral spritz.
$110 (90 ml), www.thebay.com
