While we may not be able to be with our families in person this holiday season, the spirit of giving is as important as ever. Stay connected with mom this year by giving her a gift she can wear everywhere, and a daily reminder of your love: scent.
1. CHER EAU DE COUTURE
A scent as sexy and iconic as its inspiration, Cher Eau de Couture is an intergenerational favorite. On one level flirty and sensual, on other meditative and serene, the scent defies a single category, like Cher herself. Vibrant notes of bergamot and neroli meet the intimate florals of jasmine and rose and smoke and spice of sandalwood and clove. In all, captivating.
2. ROYAL PRINCESS OUD - CREED
Fit for a princess, made for our modern royals: mothers. From House of Creed’s history as a royal couturier comes this sketch, in scent, of bygone aristocracy: the rose- and violet perfume of grand ballrooms; the vanilla and jasmine wafting at high tea; and the rarified air of oud, discerning and seductive.
3. AU PINK FLAMINGO - FLEUR DE POINT
Au Pink Flamingo is perfect for moms with a #BossB*tch reputation.
Among the coffee rings and cigarette smoke, the cabaret singer dreams. Of love, of lightness, of flight. Leaving the Pink Flamingo to meet her fate, a flock of the birds takes flight, heralding her rosy future.
4. WHITE LIGHT - ATELIER OBLIQUE
For a mother who brings light into every room: the sun’s radiance in scent.
Like throwing open the curtains, the light floods in: sparkling citrus evokes the first smile of the day, then you bask in the glow of white flowers and jasmine. The day stretches on, languid in orange blossom and musk; your own sun celebration.
5. INTENTION - THE PHLUID PROJECT
Expressed in two layers of pink, emblematic of the push and pull between a mother's strength and tenderness. Intention is a purposeful scent, declaring you don’t have to choose sides. Above, the green of young rosebuds mingles with spicy pink pepper and glossy-sweet cherry. Below, musky cedarwood wears a suede-like accord of saffron and tonka bean.
7. NATALIE DYLANA
If you're unsure of what type of scent your mom likes, Natalie Dylana is probably your safest bet. Natalie Dylana is playful, featuring juicy fig and mandarin, lightly sensual, with notes of jasmine petals and orange blossoms, and edgy, deepened with amber woods, musk and cedar wood. It is a scent for anyone, for all the moods that make us who we are.
8. I AM BRIGHT - SCENT ORGANIX
For a mom who's still talking about the family vacation they had to cancel this year...
A fruity, dreamy scent to capture an island state of mind. Sun. Sand. Blue sky. Salty skin. It’s a perfect oasis, suffused with aromas of pineapple, coconut and tropical tiare flower. Surrounded by nature, in your own private world.
9. LA VOCE - RENÉE FLEMING
For the opera lover and elegant woman: perfectly balancing art and science, classic notes of jasmine and lily-of-the-valley are surrounded by upper and lower registers of passionfruit, mushroom and ebony. A scent formulated deliberately to evoke the same joy, ascent and exhilaration as the soprano’s soaring voice.
