This Fragrance Friday, I present to you a Mother’s Day Gift Guide for Fragrances. These are a few fragrances I’ve had the opportunity to try, and ended up loving. There’s a mix of floral scents, musk, and somewhat sweet scents – all of which are perfect for spring; there’s something for everyone. Be sure to keep this Fragrance Friday Mother’s Day Gift Guide for Fragrances in mind when shopping for the mom in your life.
L’Occitane Magnolia & Mûre
My husband purchased the L’Occitane La Colelction De Grasse Travel Set for me to figure out which eau de toilet from this collection I preferred. I fell in-love with two: Vanille & Narcisse, and Magnolia & Mûre. Magnolia & Mûre is described as a sophisticated fragrance; a balance between flower and fruit, as the mysterious magnolia essence provides the prelude to wild blackberry notes. Present throughout the fragrance, blackberry gives a tenderness to the woody structure and softens its seriousness. If you love blackberry notes, you will love, love, love this! This one is my husband’s favorite, too!
Hanae Mori Eau De Collection # 6
My husband picked up from Sephora, a sample of all of the Hanea Mori fragrances, which were three in total. Out of all of them, the one I liked most was the limited edition Hanae Mori Eau De Collection # 6. To me, it is the perfect summer scent. It’s an Eau de Toilet, so it doesn’t last as long, but the scent makes up for it.
The top note is tree-ripe jasmine from Morocco, neroli from southern France and bergamot from Calabria. The middle note is Egyptian jasmine for a hint of mystery, Tunisia orange blossom, green roses, American peony and heliotrope: a purple flower beloved by butterflies. The base note is Tahitian vanilla, rich toffee, a touch of sandalwood from India and benzoin, a fragrant resin from tree bark.

Bond No 9 New York Musk
I’m a fan of Musk, and unisex fragrances. I sometimes find myself spritzing on some of my husband’s colognes, which he hates. Bond No 9 New York Musk has notes a lot of my favorite notes of grapefruit, black currant, osmanthus flower, green lilies, nutmeg, musk, patchouli, sandalwood and vetiver .
