Gorgeous perfumes to the woman

Mother’s Day gifts are tough. You want to give something that says “thanks for being a great Mom,” without resigning her to the kitchen by giving her a “helpful” cooking appliance, or making her feel old by gifting a knitting or crocheting kit, or proving that you had no time by handing her a Hallmark card that reads like a cheesy novel. Clothes are tricky. Flowers are overdone. Chocolates imply no thought.

Like we said, a gift for the most important woman in your life on a day when you are thanking her for her often-thankless work has got to be good.

Skip to see the new perfect-for-spring-and-summer perfumes (and a couple classics) that will make any mother’s day.

That’s why perfume is the perfect gift for really any woman. It shows thought, effort and taste on your part and if it’s the right perfume for her, she will be forever thankful. Why? Because scent is the strongest link to memory — every time she smells it, she will be reminded of your love and appreciation.

But now that you are hip to the secret of a successful Mother’s Day gift, it’s important to realize that you can’t just pop into any Sephora or department store and pick a perfume at random. That’s where we come in. With this handy guide containing the best and brightest perfumes new for the season as well as a nod to a couple classics, you can find a scent that matches her essence (or yours if you are treating yourself) be it youthful, glamorous, sophisticated, sexy, or ultra feminine.

Trust us, she’ll love these picks way more than the mug with “#1 Mom” slapped on it — shehad to say she liked that — it’s called unconditional love.
