Mother's Day Fragrance Roundup! (A Gift Guide)

Fragrant Gift Ideas for Mother's Day!

Still haven't gotten mom the perfect gift for Mother's Day? Don't fret! Here are some suggestions from someone who knows of what they speak {because a) I'm a mom and b) I know fragrance}! I own most of these scents {I either purchased them myself or were sent them via PR for review}, and some of them I have not yet added to my collection, but I want to!

BOSS NUIT POUR FEMME by Hugo Boss EAU DE PARFUM SPRAY (MSRP $59 for 50 ml and $75 for 75ml) - The newest addition to my growing hoard collection {via PR}, if you follow me on Instagram, you know that I was instantly smitten with the fragrance. It smells mature, sexy, feminine, and seductive without being overpowering. {Top Notes: white peach and wet aldehydic accord. Heart Accord: jasmine, white flowers bouquet, and violet. Base Notes: crystal moss, warm woods, and creamy sandalwood} 

Heidi Klum Surprise (MSRP $28 for 1 fl. oz) - {received via PR for review} Heidi Klum's latest fragrance has floral-fruity notes that evoke positive feelings. The fragrance provides a blend of luminous fruity and fine floral accords warmed with resins and wood. It's blend of hard and soft is perfect for the corporate, board room mama!

Marc Jacobs Daisy Sunshine  Eau de Toilette Spray (MSRP $65 for 1.7 oz) - This lovely is on my wishlist! I sometimes refrain from wearing fragrance when we go to the mall, just so I can spritz myself with this once we get there. It is perfectly named {only because Happy was taken, because that'd be a pretty perfect name for it too} and the perfect summer fragrance. {Notes: Red Currant, Guava, Juicy Mandarin, Lily of the Valley, Violet, Lychee, Apricot Skin, Blonde Woods, Musks}. 

VIVA by Fergie (MSRP $30 for 1.7 fl. oz) - The notes of this new and unique fragrance consist of luscious greens and captivating herbs to create a cool effect that invigorates and refreshes the senses, fresh floral, minty and spicy undertones, and fierce lavender to deliver a modern contrast between masculine and feminine, and the beautiful woody note of vetiver, wrapped with sweet leathery undertones to add depth and sensuality to the fragrance. {Received via PR for review; original post is here}.

Juicy Couture Travel Spray Pen Set (MSRP $35) - {I bought these for myself!} This is a great gift for the mama's like me, who can't choose just one signature fragrance. The complete couture fragrance wardrobe in one on-the-go set. This set contains: 0.33 oz Eau de Parfum Spray in Juicy Couture, 0.33 oz Eau de Parfum Spray in Viva la Juicy, and 0.33 oz Eau de Toilette Spray in Juicy Couture is a flirtatious blend of watermelon, pink passion fruit, while tuberose lays at the heart and finishes off with caramel creme brulee and vanilla. You get an enticing scent of wild berries and mandarins, honeysuckle, gardenia, and jasmine bursts with Viva la Juicy. To round it out, amber, caramel, vanilla, sandalwood, and praline add just the right touch of sweetness. And Viva La Juicy La Fleur reveals a sheer veil of sparkling mandarin and wild berries, combined with luminous florals of lush honeysuckle, gardenia petals, and soft jasmine. A whisper of creamy gourmand reminiscent of the Classic Viva la Juicy elicits an addiction that envelops the skin. 

Flor Violeta by Avon (MSRP $28) - Joyful, bright and radiant, Flor Violeta is the perfect fragrance for mom. The fragrance features Natural Green Apple Extract, Raspberry Leaves and Dewberry scents as its top notes, Violet Blossom, Sun-Ripened Currant and Pink Peony as middle notes, and Soft Musk, Cedarwood and Warm Sandalwood as base notes.
