With Mothers Day just under a week away now i wanted to share with you some gorgeous perfume gift sets which would make ideal presents for all of your lovely mothers, i always try to appreciate what my mum does for me every day but its always great to spoil her as much as you can on this special day! These two perfume gifts sets that i will be sharing with you are from Fragrance Direct who stock fragrances, makeup,skincare and more, so if perfume isn’t something your mum particularly uses there are many other things to choose from!
Marc Jacobs Dot Gift Set 50ml Fragrance Direct £44.99*
This Marc Jacobs gift set comes with the 50ml Dot Eau de parfum spray, 75ml Dot radiant body lotion and 75ml of the Dot fresh shower gel. I love gift sets which include all 3 because the perfume combined with either the shower gel or body lotion really helps to prolong the smell.
Firstly lets appreciate how absolutely amazing the packing of both the perfume and the shower gel and body lotion are! A lady bird first springs to mind with the specific colours and dots! The bottle is probably one of the prettiest that i have ever seen, it definitely helps with the overall appeal of buying the perfume in the first place, i for one definitely think the packaging determines whether i buy something or not!
The fragrance of Dot is a lush and fruity floral scent. The scents in the perfume ‘captivate with a delectable blend of red berries, succulent dragon fruit, and sweet honeysuckle. The lush floral heart of the fragrance blooms with addictive jasmine mingled with energising notes of coconut water and orange blossom. The scent rounds out with a feminine dry down of creamy vanilla, driftwood, and sensual musks’. It really is such a gorgeous fruity scent for spring and summer and as described it contains lots of different scents and i found the lasting power of it was really good which is something i always look for in a perfume. I’m also a fan of the other Marc Jacobs fragrances especially Daisy, Fragrance direct also stocks the other gift sets of the Marc Jacobs range too if those fragrances are more of your mums cup of tea!
Nina Ricci Ricci Gift Set 50ml Fragrance Direct £36.95*
The Nina Ricci Ricci gift set includes the 50ml Ricci Ricci Eau de parfum and the audacious body lotion of the scent. Again i love combining a body lotion with the perfume as the scent really gets a chance to sink into your skin and last for longer.
The packaging again is so pretty and especially of the bottle, i love the rich plum shade of the perfume bottle and the gorgeous detailing of ribbon on the top of the bottle. Its really simplistic with the one colour used throughout but its very effective and elegant.
This beautiful scent is another which is perfect for spring and summer and it composes of a medley of floral freshness. The scent can be described as ‘featuring top notes of Rhubarb zest and bergamot. Heart notes feature moonflower,Indian Tuberose and Centifolia Rose while base notes boost patchouli and sandalwood’. Again the lasting smell of this is great and i got loads of compliments wearing this, my usual fragrances usually lose their smell after an hour, so i am very impressed!
Both of these perfumes and gift sets are the perfect fragrances for spring with their floral and juicy secents, they will also look amazing on anyones dressing or makeup table! Fragrance Direct stock these as well as many other beautiful scents if you’re looking for one for your mum for mothers day! Other ideas for Mothers Day that i have in mind if you are on a budget and want to be bit more creative are homemade hampers which could be themed, such as a pamper one or just simply filled with all the things that your mum loves, others things could be a homemade afternoon tea, a day trip somewhere, a collage of all of your pictures together, there really are so many great ideas if you’re on a budget, having a look at pinterest is great for inspiration too!
