Thinking of getting Mom flowers for Mother’s Day? Pick some up, by all means, but go beyond the blooms by pairing them with the perfect floral fragrance. Sure to last more than 7-10 days, fragrance makes a wonderful gift and helps to create a scent memory of the occasion.
I’m sharing 5 of my favourite florals, any of which would be the perfect gift for the mom, mother-to-be or grandma on your list. I won’t judge if you decide to pick them up for yourself, though – any of them would make the perfect spring/summer fragrance!
Roses de Chloé
The original Chloe is one of my go-to scents. Adding in notes of bergamot, damascena rose and magnolia accord to the signature white musk and amber scents makes the fragrance even more sophisticated. Fragrances with notes of rose tend to be stereotyped as older, but this is a fresh new way to wear an old favourite, no matter your age.
The brand describes this as “Airy, luminous and subtle” and I can’t help but agree.
Roses de Chloé retails for $85 for 50mL
Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh (Delight Edition)
Another old favourite with a new twist, Daisy Eau So Fresh is a bright, vibrant fragrance that’s the perfect pick-me-up for spring. Decidedly juicy & floral, Daisy Eau So Fresh pairs blood orange, pink pepper and white tea with tiare tahiti, violet, raspberry, apricot skin, musk and amber.
Daisy Eau So Fresh Marc Jacobs Delight Edition retails for $89 (75ml)
Calvin Klein Endless Euphoria
Endless Euphoria is a pure floral fragrance. It opens with cherry blossoms and moves into a violet note, finally ending in bamboo. It’s light and radiant yet also manages to be very sensual and feminine.
Endless Euphoria retails between $49 – $99
Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb
Another favourite of mine, Flowerbomb is exactly that – an explosion of flowers. It’s the kind of scent you get stopped in the street for wearing and that ex-boyfriends will remember forever, much as they wish they didn’t. Mom will love the feminine yet not overpowering mix of sambac jasmine, centifolia rose, cattleya orchid, and ballerina freesia bloom on a base of patchouli.
Flowerbomb retails for $88
Jo Malone Peony and Blush Suede
I’ve shared this fragrance with you before, and for good reason. It’s beautiful. Featuring my favourite flower – the peony – along with notes of red apple, jasmine, rose and gillyflower paired with blush suede, this scent is sophisticated and romantic in the best of ways. Mom will love this charming cologne, especially if you pair it with the matching candle!
Jo Malone Peony & Blush Suede cologne retails between $60 – $115
