Mothers' day is that one time of year when we all get together as a community to acknowledge and thank our mothers for the hard work and effort they put into raising us, looking out for us and being there for us as a friend.
Of course, we could never repay this level of kindness and dedication, but even the smallest of gestures usually go a long way in touching our mum's hearts and putting a smile on their faces.
Finding a personalised last minute mother's day gift can be challenging, especially if you wanted to get a name or image printed on an item at short notice. Finding your mum a new fragrance can be a good compromise if you need to find a personalised gift at short notice. Perfume is the ideal gift for so many women, but selecting a new scent for someone else is always a daunting task as it is so hard to know if they will like how it smells.
With so many fragrances to choose from, finding the perfect scent for your mum can often be a struggle. One keen way to decide if a perfume is the best gift for your mum is to decide whether you think it will match their personality or not.
Luckily for you, we’ve matched some of our best fragrances with 5 personality traits, helping to make sure your mum gets her dream gift this Mother’s Day.
Gentle & Sensitive
For the mum who stays calm and serene in stressful situations and who is forever understanding, we have Pur Blanca Harmony. A wistful blend of fresh raspberry, jasmine and musk, this fragrance allows you to find the perfect harmony between mind and body – ideal for your caring and relaxed mum.
Sophisticated & Powerful
Take your mum for a walk on the glamorous side with Far Away Glamour. With its powerful notes of blackcurrant bud that is brightened by the radiance of orange flower, it’s a sophisticated duo like no other. Ending off with a hint of black musk and this scent is perfection in a bottle.
Warm & Friendly
Is your mum the woman that friends and family go to for advice and support? Is she harmonious, honest and well-balanced? Then we have two fragrances that we know she’ll love.
If she adores floral scents of delicate rose, fresh neroli and woody santal, then our Today, Tomorrow, Always fragrance is her perfect match.
Alternatively, if she’s looking for something a little different, try surprising her with the brand-new Eve Truth, made up of a captivating blend of magnetic beauty aura, tender peony and sweet cedarwood.
Physical & Energetic
Is your mum energetic with a thirst for life? Is she a keen gym-goer or perhaps just loves being out and about in the great outdoors? Or is she a bit of an adrenaline junky, maybe someone who likes to drive fast, owns a motorbike or is into extreme sports?
Bold and fearless women like this need a fragrance that’s full of zest and confidence to match their high levels of energy. The Lipsy Noir Eau de Parfum is the perfect blend of mandarin, vibrant violet and captivating patchouli, which will match your mum’s love for life wherever she goes.
Focused & Selective
Match your mum’s elegance with our very own modern classic, Little Black Dress. A sophisticated blend of honeysuckle, ylang-ylang and milkwood, this is the perfect fragrance for ladies who adore the scent of bright fruits, elegant florals and luxurious woods. Little Black Dress also makes a good substitute for the classic Avon Honeysuckle perfume from the 1960s that proved a massive hit with mothers at the time. Little Black Dress is one of the best fragrances for mums over 60. Purchase this for a grandmother or mother who lived it up in the 60s and help them revisit their youth.
We know that no mum is ever the same, and we adore them for their uniqueness and the unconditional love they’ve shown us over the years. No matter what makes them special to you, we hope that our fragrance finder has helped you discover your mum’s new favourite scent.
If you'd like to sample the perfume before you buy a larger bottle, you could also consider ordering a sample of the full Avon range first so that you can decide for yourself which one she'd prefer.
So, whether she’s full of energy and zest, or sophisticated and elegant, Mother’s Day is officially sorted.
