Mother's Day (in the US, anyway) is coming up on Sunday, 8 May. It's time to get shopping, so here are a scented gift ideas for 2016.
From Hèrmes, Le Petit Bain bundle: pick a 50 ml fragrance, and add one or two body products of your choice. Prices vary; the selection show above is $219 (shipping is free). At Hèrmes USA.
From Ladurée, a mini candle gift box in Wild Strawberry & Brioche: "Inside are small biscuit pots in Laduree colors decorated with a precious white cameo relief of the Laduree crest. Each “Arabesque” box contains two candles, each with a different colour and scent. The mischievous Wild Strawberry candle is mixed with gourmand Brioche, a signature of Laduree and a nostalgic scent." $64 at Luckyscent.
From Maison Francis Kurkdjian, Scented Shower Cream in the À la rose fragrance: "Bright Damascena and Centifolia roses caress the skin like a veil of radiant femininity. A feeling of freshness carrying bergamot from Calabria, violet and magnolia flowers, subtly invigorated by a breeze of cedar wood and musks." $60 for 250 ml at Neiman Marcus.
From Lush, the Rosie wrapped gift: "This gift brings together Rose Jam Bubbleroon, Amandopondo Bubble Bar, our silky smooth Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner, Ultrabalm multi-purpose balm and Rose Jam shower gel—a Rosie gift exclusive.

From Carthusia, scented dusting power in the Capri Forget Me Not fragrance: "Refreshing, sweet, and divinely smelling, this fine talcum is infused with essences of ripe fig, revitalizing mint, and creamy vanilla in the new Carthusia classic Forget Me Not fragrance." $40 at Four Seasons Products.
From Fragonard, iris scented soaps ($12 for a 140g bar, or $26 for a boxed set of four 50g guest soap bars) and matching dish ($16), all at Beautyhabit.
That natural perfumery kit looks pretty cool, but I’d probably make horrendous creations that are blasphemous to the fragrance world and waste all that precious oil – and money!
Ha, me too. But it’s one of the nicer kits I’ve seen.
Ditto! My mom commented just this afternoon “why don’t you make your own? ” and i said something along the same lines
Does look super fun, though. If I had the cash I would splash out for it for myself!
I wish they’d sell those cute, short 50-ml Hermes bottles separately.
They do! Check the USA site.
When my mom gets her own, she finds the 50ml Sur la Nil on discoint sites. So cute!
The cute Hermes bottle caught my attention, enough so that I’m considering donating my larger sizes and replacing them with the 50 mLs. OK, when I win the lottery, that will be my literal perfume downsizing project (or I will hire someone to do that project because won lottery can afford).
Hermes must have personal shopping services
The Rosie is something I must get for myself ( my mother is more of a Chantilly fan, followed by eau de cologne waters. She’s my Ma, so what can I do?) The rose jam shower gel +ro argan skin conditioner would be perfect for a summer morning when wearing outright scent is too much.
The same goes for the Scented Shower Cream by Maison Kurkdjian- that sounds truly lovely for a summer shower!
