Make Mother’s Day Magical

Make Mother’s Day Magical

Mother’s Day comes every year, and every year it seems to creep up. It is the perfect day to show mum that you care about her, which can often make it stressful: what do you get her to show her you love her?! Fragrances and body products are wonderful ways of showing mum you care and are thinking of her by giving her a gift that she will use every day.

A lovely choice of fragrance for Mother’s Day is the Mon Guerlain Eau de Toilette from Guerlain. It is a popular fragrance, revered for its unique combination of bright fruits, powdery florals, and gentle sweetness. Mon Guerlain is a sparkling floral amber perfume, with top notes of bergamot, mandarin and pear, middle notes of lavender, neroli and jasmine, and base notes of iris, sandalwood, and vanilla. This is a sophisticated and warm fragrance, powdery and slightly sweet, the perfect gift for a mother with a sense of vintage style. The creamy florals of Mon Guerlain are not to everyone’s taste, however; for a more classical scent, Ralph Lauren’s Women is the way to go. Woman has a base of sandalwood, woods, and hazelnut for nuttiness, with middle notes of orange blossom, rose and tuberose, and head-turning top notes of blackcurrant buds, pear, and rhubarb. Floral and rich, Woman is an effortlessly beautiful fragrance with a touch of woody sweetness for a scent mum will love. 

Another popular choice for mums is Trésor from Lancôme. This is a long-lasting floral amber fragrance that is guaranteed to catch noses and turn heads. Trésor has top notes of apricot, lily of the valley, white peach and rose, middle notes of iris, lilac, peach, rose and heliotrope, and base notes of amber, musk, sandalwood, vanilla, and vetiver. This is a mature perfume, powdery floral and heady. Fashionably French, deep, and warm, Trésor is a floral amber fragrance full of tenderness. However, if mum would like a floral that is a little lighter, there is Rosefrom Cabotine. Cabotine Rose is a delightfully fresh fragrance. It opens with gentle notes of greenery, mandarin, pear, and delicate cherry blossom, with middle notes of Hawaiian jasmine, rose, tuberose, mimosa, peony, and pepper on base notes of sandalwood, vetiver and plumeria. This fragrance lasts beautifully, with a bright opening of cherry blossom and rose and a dry down that exemplifies the base notes. Modern and fashionable, Cabotine Rose is for mothers who like florals with added depth.

For something to help mum feel comfortable in the coming colder months, there are body products that hydrate and make for fantastic gifts. The Maine Beach Signature Cremes Collection is a perfect gift set for Mother’s Day. Maine Beach is an Australian made and owned company, focused on showcasing Australia’s botanic diversity. This set includes five 15ml tubes of Maine Beach’s luxurious hand creams in different scents. These five scents include fruity Kakadu Plum, dusky Mt Macedon Rose, bright Riverland Orange, sweet Kangaroo Island Ligurian Honey, and calming Tasmanian Lavender. With a variety of fragrances and in perfect travel sizes, this signature crème set is great for a mum that you don’t know how to buy for.

For ultimate Maine Beach luxury for mum, there is the Mt Macedon Rose Luxe Body Mousse. Enriched with organic Shea Butter, this hydrating body mousse has a rich and thick texture that moisturises and rejuvenates. Fragranced with voluptuous rose on a base of cotton blossom and cloves and accented with soft spice, crushed violet and citrus leaves, this body mousse has a luxurious and calming scent to enhance your mum’s self-care.

Mor’s triple-milled soap in Peonyis another body-care gift. As the name suggests, this soap is triple-milled for a dense, smooth texture and a longer-lasting bar. This soap is perfumed with a beautiful fruity-floral blend of peony, orange, lily, strawberry, pineapple, and vanilla for a scent that is soft, sweet, and sensuous. It is also enriched with nourishing Shea butter and Vitamin E to create a velvety soap that will leave skin silky soft and prettily perfumed.

For a fresh and rejuvenating skincare gift there is L’Oréal’s Anti-Fatigue Sugar Scrub. This scrub combines three finely milled sugars (brown, blonde, and white) for gentle yet deep exfoliation, as well as coffee grains to reduce puffiness and smooth fatigued skin, leaving mum feeling baby-soft and radiant. The added sweet almond and coconut oils boost skin's vitality while softening. 

When gifts are given such significance as they are on Mother’s Day, it can often be hard to find the ‘perfect’ present. Fragrances and body products, with their reusable qualities and self-care focus, are a great way of showing mum that you want her to feel nice and taken-care-of.
