It’s that time of the year again: Mother’s Day, a day to commemorate mothers all around the world and anything and everything they do for their children (that’s you). You have three choices here- you can either:
1. Forget about it completely and realise finally that Mother’s Day is in fact tomorrow and the shops have closed and the only materials you have in your house/ sharehouse/ life are pom-poms and superglue and already this is shaping up to be the most pathetic homemade DIY Mother’s Day present imaginable and you can already see the disappointment in your mother’s eyes as she opens it and pretends to be chuffed.
2. Realise it’s impending, but make no tangible effort to sort yourself out for it. This is for the kids and fathers out there who print out ‘vouchers’ for ‘hugs’ or ‘spa days’ or ‘family picnics’ that never happen. OR EVEN WORSE: those that print out a picture of something that’s coming in the mail. ‘It just hasn’t arrived yet,’ you say to Mum. This may be true, but it’s because you ordered it yesterday, not because of Australia Post.
3. OR. You can order something now! Better yet, why not order fragrance- something that women rarely buy for themselves, but appreciate it as much as if they did. We’ve done the hard yards for you and selected our top 5 fragrances popular amongst mummy dearests. You’ve still got time!
Miss Dior really is the fragrance for everybody. It’s super fresh and very feminine, and manages to be both without being too sweet. This crowd classic is sure to please even the toughest of mothers.
Narciso Rodriguez is a woody, feminine fragrance with unmatched staying power. Its adorable packaging isn’t hard to look at either, and is a gorgeous addition to any woman’s collection. The word here is MUSK, as its bottle suggests.
Stella Mccartney Eau De Parfum is the ultimate fragrance for women. This floral fragrance is luxurious, light, and summery, and wears well all year round. This one’s for the mums out there with holidays on their mind.
Body by Burberry is luxuriant, full-bodied and impossibly British. This fragrance features vanilla and florals and is perfect for any mum with a taste for the finer things in life.
Bamboo by Gucci is a scent for the modern woman. Its title shouldn’t be a red flag, however- this floral fragrance is a little more lily-fresh than it is Amazonian chic. It comes as a gift set as well- winning!
