Stuck with what to get your mum for Mother’s Day? Don’t waste any more time! We’ve got a perfume to suit every type of mum, from the totally glam to the all-round adventurous…
YOUR MUM IS: FASHIONABLE, ALWAYS ON INSTAGRAM AND OWNS WAY TOO MANY SHOES
THE PERFECT GIFT: CAROLINA HERRERA GOOD GIRL LEGERE
If you haven’t heard of Carolina Herrera Good Girl perfumes, it’s time to put them on your radar. The bottle is shaped like a stiletto shoe, it’s every woman’s new best friend and your mum certainly needs one in her life. Mother’s Day is the perfect time to treat her to Good Girl Legere, the latest in the collection. It smells sweet and bold, thanks to its notes of dulce de leche (a creamy dessert that tastes of caramel), jasmine and sandalwood. What better way to match your scent to your heels?
YOUR MUM IS: SOPHISTICATED, LOVES READING AND GOING FOR WALKS IN THE COUNTRY
THE PERFECT GIFT: GUERLAIN MON GUERLAIN
Feminine, fresh and powdery, Guerlain Mon Guerlain will remind your mum of a walk in her favourite place surrounded by nature. So what could be better than the wafts of lavender, iris, sandalwood and vanilla as she spritzes Guerlain Mon Guerlain on her skin every day? She’ll fall head over heels for it on Mother’s Day – and way beyond, trust us…
YOUR MUM IS: GLAMOROUS, ALWAYS READY FOR A BLACK-TIE EVENT AND LOVES TO PARTY
THE PERFECT GIFT: CACHAREL YES I AM
Your mum is known for being fabulous, so she obviously needs a standout scent to match. Cue the new Cacharel Yes I Am, which looks like a lipstick but smells like a dream – mandarin, raspberry, ginger flower and sandalwood, to be precise. This will go everywhere with her, from black-tie shindigs to cheese and wine parties.
YOUR MUM IS: ADVENTUROUS, BAKES THE BEST CAKES AND ALWAYS HAS A HOLIDAY BOOKED
THE PERFECT GIFT: PACO RABANNE PURE XS FOR HER
Your mum is never in one place for long, jet-setting or exploring the local food market. She lives by the term YOLO. And because we know she’s got a sweet tooth, you should opt for a daring gourmand fragrance (with edible notes, which smell good enough to eat) for Mother’s Day. Paco Rabanne Pure XS combines top notes of ylang-ylang, middle accords of salty-sweet popcorn and a base of vanilla and sandalwood. Now that’s the best Mother’s Day treat we can think of.
YOUR MUM IS: ELEGANT, LIKES THE FINER THINGS IN LIFE AND ENJOYS A GOOD ROMANTIC CHICK FLICK
THE PERFECT GIFT: ARMANI SI
Armani Si is a classic. Perhaps she’s already a fan or has always wanted to try it. All we know is you can’t go wrong with it for your Mother’s Day gift. It’s chic and elegant, just like her, with its sensual blend of roses, mandarin oil, bergamot and vanilla. And have you heard that there’s a new Armani Si perfume launching on 27 March? Armani Si Fiori is set to be the next big thing for Si wearers, with an updated blend of mandarin, blackcurrant, vanilla and white musk. Keep your eyes peeled for this one, Armani fans…
