We’ve created an edit of some of the best Mother’s Day fragrance offerings this Mother’s Day. These bouquets come with all the trimmings: beautiful packaging, unbeatable aromas – and best of all, she’ll get to take them with her wherever she goes! Read on for some gorgeous gifting inspiration…
The gift of a timelessly beautiful floral bouquet
Givenchy Very Irresistible Limited Edition New
Give your mum a bouquet of a different kind with Very Irresistible. This breathtakingly beautiful fragrance has been enchanting women (and men) all over the world for more than 10 years, with a signature blend of five roses and a touch of spiced star anise.

Gift it if… she loves deeply floral fragrances.
Dior J’Adore Eau de Parfum
Whatever your mum’s style, this generous and elegant fragrance is a fantastic choice. Dior’s legendary J’Adore Eau de Parfum is somewhat of a scent chameleon, pairing just as well with a crisp white shirt and jeans as it does a ballgown and jewels. A true golden goddess fragrance with a masterful blend of fresh and voluminous ylang-ylang, beautiful Damask Rose, and delicate Sambac Jasmine.
Gift it if… you want to really spoil your mum – this is the ultimate fragrance treat.
Acqua di Parma Rosa Nobile Eau de Parfum
A tender and photorealistic fragrance, Rosa Nobile captures the unique beauty of an Italian rose garden in full bloom. Its signature Centifolia Rose petals are laced with the vibrancy of Calabrian bergamot and pepper in the top notes, soft peony in the heart, and warm woods and ambergris in the base, creating the overall impression of a thoroughly modern, softly sensuous fragrance. Go one better than a bouquet of roses and gift her this elegant fragrance instead.
Gift it if… her favourite flower is a rose – this is a beautiful rendition of a rose scent.
A little something to make her feel oh-so special.
Elie Saab Le Parfum Resort Collection Eau de Toilette New
If she’s forever dreaming of her next exotic escape, she’ll love this delicious new fragrance from the master of couture, Elie Saab. Everything about Le Parfum Resort Collection is luxurious and inviting, from the sub-dappled scent of fig, orange blossom and frangipani, to the striking azure blue bottle. When creating the fragrance, perfumer Francis Kurkdjian imagined a woman on the deck of a yacht, a gentle breeze caressing her face. And what could be more appealing than that?

Gift it if… she’s a glam globetrotter.
Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Eau Fraiche Eau de Toilette New
Guerlain’s La Petite Robe Noire Eau Fraiche is a surprisingly fun and flirty launch from the venerated fragrance house, bringing together its heritage of fine craftsmanship with almost-edible accords including pistachio, mandarin and the flagship note of the La Petite Robe Noire collection, cherry. It’s fresh and green with a little touch of sweetness, and it’s the ideal present for mums with a soft spot for Parisian style. Check out our fragrance expert’s review here.
Gift it if… she has a penchant for all things Français.
Versace Eros Pour Femme New
Last year Versace launched Eros, a bold and powerful fragrance for men. This year sees the launch of its female counterpart, Versace Eros Pour Femme, an indulgent floral fragrance that’s every bit as arresting… and then some. A veritable elixir of notes, this confident fragrance blends notes of citrus, jasmine sambac absolute and ambrox, a combination that is in equal parts intense and sophisticated.

Fresh and Fun
Bright and happy fragrances every bit as beautiful as your mum.
Marc Jacobs Daisy Sorbet Eau de Toilette New
This brand new launch from Marc Jacobs couldn’t be more perfect for young-at-heart mums. Daisy Sorbet’s luscious fruity-floral scent takes the bright and sunny signature of the original Daisy fragrance and makes it even more irresistible, with a blend of sparkling notes including grapefruit, passion fruit, wisteria and violet wood. It’s the perfect scent for spring, and will have her dreaming of clear blue skies and summer picnics.
Gift it if… she’s always stealing your fragrance. Now you can steal hers!
Stella McCartney Stella Eau de Toilette New
I maintain that you’ll be hard pressed to find a greater love than the one women have for Stella McCartney’s Stella Eau de Parfum, a plush rose fragrance with a sensuous twist. The latest chapter in this rose-tinted tale is Stella Eau de Toilette, an understated and chic floral fragrance with sparkling citrus tones so infectiously uplifting, I bet your mum won’t help but smile when she sprays it on.
Gift it if… she’s a classic beauty with a sparkling personality.
DKNY Delicious Delights Dreamsicle Eau de Toilette New
And finally, a fragrance for mums with a playful side. This limited edition fragrance was launched alongside two others (Cool Swirl and Rooty Fruity), but this is the one that’s making ours mouths water most at Escentual HQ. Inspired by the different flavours found in an ice cream parlour, Dreamsicle releases wave upon wave of juicy fruits and creamy vanilla to create the scent of a peach and apple sundae. You’ll have to smell it to believe it.
Gift it if… she has a sweet tooth!
