One classic and enduring gift for Mother's Day is fragrance; it's a personal gift, perfect for expressing our love and gratitude. I've checked out 7 of the best new fragrances, sure to please the Mom in your life, in the Beauty411 Mother's Day Gift Guide. Read on…
Blue Glow by JLo – Sumptuous floral unites with mouth-watering fruit and
warm, sensual wood. Taking a cue from Glow by
JLo, this fruity floral scent channels the mysterious ocean in a
smooth, curvaceous bottle washed in a deep blue hue, accented with an ankle bracelet. 1 oz. Eau de Toilette, $32.
Kimora Lee Simmons dares women to be fearless, smart, glamorous and sexy with her new fragrance, Dare Me. This just-right for summer floriental fragrance opens with a
coconut top note that blends into a heart of velvety blackberry crème
and vanilla orchid with a warm drydown of crème de musk
and sandalwood. 1 oz. Eau de Toilette, $28.
CHANEL Chance Eau Tendre Eau de Toilette – This is the third generation of Chance and honestly, my favorite. A trace of green notes, Jasmine Absolute softened by a sheer veil of white musk and a hint of grapefruit, CHANEL Chance Eau Tendre Eau de Toilette is innocent yet sexy. $65 for 1.7 oz.
nanette by Nanette Lepore has everything I love in a fragrance…a captivating scent, a bit of sophistication and a gorgeous bottle. This floriental starts out with notes of pink pepper, Neroli and rose petals, adds a dash of Violet and drys down to amber incense and woods. 1 oz. Eau de Parfum retails at $48.
If you have an adventurous Mom that likes more of a woody, fresh, musky, fragrance, consider Voyage d'Hermès. Definitely non-traditional, this fragrance invokes more of a unisex feel and is a study in contrasts: with notes considered masculine, feminine, warm and cool. Voyage d'Hermès is available at Hermes boutiques and online at
Hermes.com, 1.2 oz. refillable EDT $90.
A Mom that is constantly on the go will love the portability and convenience of the Royal Apothic Extract
Collection. These amazing roll-on fragrances can be worn individually
or blended to create your own personal scent. At $16 each, they won't break the bank. I was able to try the Marigold and Hydrangea, which I loved. In various fragrances; available at www.anthropologie.com.
YSL's Opium, a
legendary fragrance classic, has a newly redesigned bottle that
symbolizes the passage to an imaginary world of fantasy. If the Mom you're shopping for has been a fan of this fragrance, why not pick up the updated
bottle for her? The 1 oz. Eau de Toilette retails at $50 and is
available in May at www.yslbeautyus.com.
