March and April are both busy months for me for family and friends Birthdays and also we have Mother’s Day coming up on the 31st! I’m currently on the constant hunt for the perfect gift but one thing you can never go wrong with is a great fragrance. For Mother’s Day, a great perfume can make a really lovely present and I’ve teamed up with Notino.co.uk to give you my top picks. There are always so many to choose from it can be really overwhelming but I’ve asked my Mum what her favourites are and have also picked a few myself. Also over on Notino.co.uk, you can also personalise your perfume bottle with a message for your Mum which I think is such a lovely touch to the gift.
First up, we’ve got Black Opium by YSL and this is actually one of my grandma’s favourite scents. She’s always been a big fan of the original Opium perfume but really loves the Black Opium one now and to be honest, so do I. This fragrance has notes of orange blossom, coffee and vanilla and is actually one of my go-to scents for an evening out. I believe it’s actually on offer on Notino.co.uk at the moment too!
One of the perfumes my Mum picked out for this post was Marc Jacobs Daisy Love. It’s a very fresh and floral scent and I think my Mum’s love for Marc Jacobs Fragrances may have been influenced by me. Growing up, Lola was one of my favourites and over the years, my Mum’s had a few different scents by Marc Jacobs. Daisy Love is one of the newer fragrances from Marc Jacobs but it’s a current firm favourite with my Mum.
I think if you’re looking for a luxury scent, there are three brands you need to look at; Jo Malone, Tom Ford and Chanel. All these three brands are stocked on Notino.co.uk giving you plenty of choices to choose from. Chanel is just that classic brand which everyone recognizes and there are some lovely perfumes. My Mum actually isn’t a fan of the classic and iconic Chanel No5 but does love Coco Mademoiselle which is a lighter scent with more floral and fruity notes.
Buying a fragrance within a gift set might also be a good idea. Not only does it usually work out either cheaper or a similar price but you get additional items such as body lotions and a shower gel. It also comes in a lovely presented box so you don’t even have to do any wrapping. Gucci Bamboo have got a gift set which comes with a 50ml Body Milk. I thought I’d add this one in as this is my current favourite scent at the moment and perfect for everyday!
What’s your current favourite perfume?
