Signature Scents To Spoil Mom With This Mothers Day

Patience. Unconditional Love. Wisdom. These are some of the priceless gifts our mother figures have bestowed upon us throughout our lives. Of course, it seems almost impossible to give a gift that reciprocates what our mothers have also taught us, but a signature scent is a great way to start. 

Fragrance is the gift that keeps on giving ‒ perfect for everyday use and perfectly personalised with thought and consideration of everything that makes the women in your life so special. 

Choosing A Signature Scent For Mother’s Day

With Mother’s Day around the corner, you’ve decided that you’d spoil the special lady/ladies in your life with a new fragrance, whether it’s your own mother, the mother of your children, grandmother, sister, aunt or anyone you choose to honour on Mother’s Day. 

But something as personalised as perfume can be tricky to select. How do you choose the right one? Firstly, a great tip is to find out what perfumes the recipient may have worn previously. This will give you a better understanding of the types of scents and brands they prefer. Try taking a mental note of her dressing table; even better, try to sneak a quick pic on your phone. 

Do A Little Comparative Research

Once you’ve determined which fragrances the recipient wears, do some research to determine what they smell like. You don’t have to go too deep ‒ find out what kinds of categories the scent profiles fall under. It might be floral, oriental, fresh, etc. With that insight, you can start looking at other scents in that category, fully confident that it appeals to her taste. 

Identify Their Perfume Strength Preferences

If you haven’t managed to get a look at her dresser, you could take the strength of her perfume into account. Can you smell the fragrance from quite a distance? Stronger fragrances often fall under the Eau de Parfum or Parfum Concentrate categories. Do you notice you only smell her perfume when you give her a hug? For more subtle, gentle fragrances, you can go for something in the Eau de Toilette or Eau de Cologne categories. 

What Makes Them Special?

Of course, your Mother’s Day gift recipient might not be someone who wears perfumes. And you’d like to spoil them with the experience and create a new gifting tradition. Consider their personality traits. Are they bright and bubbly? They might prefer something with a fresh or citrus profile. For a more calm and authentic personality, you might try something earthy.

Do they have a massive sweet tooth? Try something that carries a ‘vanilla’ or ‘gourmand’ profile. For a more fiery and passionate personality, you might want to try a deep, oriental, spiced fragrance profile. Someone with a more delicate or feminine air about them might appreciate a fragrance with subtle, floral and powdery notes. 
A signature scent is a wonderful gift, a lasting memory, a thoughtful expression of love. If you’re unsure what you should choose, just trust your instinct. Remember: It’s the thought that counts. Shop our Female Fragrances range for the ultimate Mother’s Day gift.
