I realized they carry a number of niche brands and even sell samples. So the big question now is, is your mother a "Nurturing", "Desperate House Wife" or "24/7" mom type or ....? Check it out:
• The Fashionista – She shops in the hippest stores and wears the latest styles even before you do. She’s chic and always makes a fabulous entrance. She’ll flip over Prada Perfume, Dolce and Gabbana’s By Perfume, and Alberta Ferretti’s Femina Perfume , a contemporary blend of green mandarin, guava, with a drydown of sandalwood, amberwood and vanilla......
• The Beach Mom– In her mind, it’s always summertime; she’s got the perfect tan and a closet full of sundresses. That’s why Christian Dior’s Dune Perfume is sure to be a favorite. She’ll dive headfirst into Davidoff’s Cool Water Sea Scents And Sun Perfume or Ocean Pacific Perfume, a scent that instantly recalls the ocean breeze........• The Classic Mom – She’s a little old-fashioned, but you don’t mind. You’ve kind of gotten used to high tea and Sunday dinners. Show your thanks by giving her Jean Patou’s beautiful Joy Perfume, or Bal A Versailles Perfume, a refined blend of soft sweet spices, and orange flowers.
• The “Desperate Housewife” – She’s sexy and sophisticated, yet sweet and loving. This year, she wants Yves St. Laurent’s Baby Doll Perfume a “yummy mummy “fragrance and Givenchy’s Very Irresistible Perfume , the world's first floral aromatic perfume. If you are REALLY nice to her, maybe she will share Juicy Couture or the naughty Agent Provocateur Maitresse.
• The Zen Mom – Her days are full of yoga classes, meditations, and regular appointments at the spa. She will adore Versace’s Time To Relax Perfume. When she wears The Different Co.’s Bergamote Perfume, she will reach nirvana even when her schedule doesn’t allow for it. This delicate aroma of bergamot, hesperidium, precious woods, and ginger is the ultimate pampering accessory.
• The Nurturing Mom– She bakes, bakes, and bakes some more. Her secret recipes are highly in demand as are Demeter’s Vanilla Cake Batter Perfume and Brownie Perfume . You’ll both covet Aquolina’s Chocolovers Perfume.
• The Earth Mother – She spends more time in her garden than anywhere else, and knows how to cultivate the rarest of flowers. Calvin Klein’s Eternity Purple Orchid Perfume will complement her perfectly; it’s a light and airy combination of orchids blended with soft florals. She’s also sure to adore Calypso Christiane Cello’s Calypso Rose Perfume and Calypso Gardenia Perfume. Viktor & Rolf’s Flowerbomb Perfume is sure to please you both.
• The 24/7 Mom – Her career and home life is a constant juggling act; you can’t even remember the last time she wasn’t on a 7:00 am flight for business. Now it’s first class all the way, so even when she has the middle seat and long layovers, she can always travel in style. Show her your love, with Panthere De Cartier Perfume or Maitre Parfumeur Et Gantier’s luxe Secrete Datura Perfume an exquisite blend of lily, heliotrope and orange blossom, all assembled around the rich body of the perfume which includes iris, vanilla, chocolate and sandalwood. Fit for a queen, Creed’s Fleurissimo Perfume was created for Grace Kelly …and for your mom too.
