Mother's Day is just around the corner, and if you're like me, you might be scrambling to find the perfect gift for your mom. If you're struggling to come up with something thoughtful, why not consider gifting her a perfume? In my opinion, they're one of the best types of gifts out there – they're easy to find, and they always make the recipient feel special.


As someone who loves perfume and has amassed quite a collection over the years, I'm excited to share some of my favorites with you today. You can find all of these fragrances at Nordstrom, one of my go-to department stores for all things beauty. Plus, some of these perfumes even come with a "gift with purchase" – so you'll get a little something extra for yourself or your mom.


Here are some of my top picks for Mother's Day perfumes:

One of my absolute favorite perfumes is Delina Exclusif by Perfums De Marly. This scent has top notes of bergamot, pear, and lychee, followed by middle notes of Turkish rose, incense, and oud. The base is a warm and inviting blend of wood, amber, and vanilla.


What I love about this fragrance is how it strikes the perfect balance between being powdery and sexy, with an innocent and almost unintentional quality. My husband is also a big fan of this scent on me, which makes it even more special.


I've found that Delina Exclusif pairs particularly well with pastel-colored clothing. There's something about the softness of the fragrance that complements lighter shades and adds an extra touch of femininity to any outfit. If your mom loves romantic and sophisticated scents, I highly recommend giving Delina Exclusif a try!

Another fragrance that I highly recommend for Mother's Day is Aventus for Her by Creed. This is a classic scent that exudes power and confidence, making it perfect for the boss mom in your life.

The fragrance features top notes of Egyptian green apple, pink berries, Indonesian patchouli, and Italian bergamot, followed by middle notes of Bulgarian rose, Turkish rose, Indian sandalwood, styrax, and musk. The base notes include sweet peach, cassis, lilac, amber, and ylang-ylang.


What I love about this scent is that it's one of those fragrances that smells different on each person based on their natural oils. It's a scent that some people may think smells better on others, but in my opinion, it smells amazing on everyone. My daughter even has a small bottle of this fragrance, and we both agree that it smells great on both of us.


If you're looking for a luxurious and sophisticated fragrance for your mom, Aventus for Her by Creed is a great option. Whether she's heading to the office or out on a special occasion, this scent will give her the confidence and empowerment she needs to tackle the day ahead.

If you're looking for a fragrance that's both fruity and floral, Amyris by Maison Francis Kurkdjian is a great option. This scent is one of my most complimented fragrances, and it hits every note I love.


The fragrance features top notes of lemon blossom and pear accord, followed by middle notes of sweet pea accord and iris oil. The base notes include amirs oil and musky amber accord.


It's important to note that there is another version of this fragrance called Amyris Femme Extrait de Parfum, which features a different set of notes, including lemon tree flower, Californian orange, Jamaican amirs, Florentine iris, Haitian vetiver, and musky amber. So, make sure you choose the right one!


For me, Amyris is a fragrance that's perfect for special occasions. I always joke with my partner about renewing our vows and walking down the aisle wearing this scent, as it's truly memorable and one of a kind. If you want to give your mom a fragrance that's both elegant and unforgettable, I highly recommend Amyris by Maison Francis Kurkdjian.

If you're looking for a fragrance that's both delicious and edgy, look no further than Prada Paradoxe. This fragrance is my newest favorite, and I haven't stopped wearing it since I picked it up.

Prada Paradoxe features notes of neroli, amber, and musk, creating a youthful and rebellious vibe. It's the perfect fragrance for someone who wants to make a statement and stand out from the crowd.


Overall, Prada Paradoxe is a great choice for anyone looking for a fragrance that's both unique and captivating. It's a great gift option for Mother's Day or any special occasion, and it's sure to become a new favorite for whoever wears it.

Finally, I couldn't leave out Miss Dior. You might remember the original Miss Dior Chérie that was available from 2005-2011, which was my all-time favorite perfume. I owned two bottles and used it obsessively, so I was devastated when it was discontinued. But recently, I rediscovered the newer version called Miss Dior, and it brought back so many memories and nostalgia that I had to include it in this gift guide.


Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet is the ultimate definition of femininity and sophistication. It features notes of floral bouquet, centifolia rose, and tender woods. This fragrance is perfect for anyone who loves a classic, elegant scent. It's a timeless choice for any special occasion, and it's sure to be a beloved addition to anyone's fragrance collection.


Overall, if you're looking for a fragrance that's both classic and modern, Miss Dior is an excellent option. Whether you're buying it for yourself or as a gift for someone special, it's sure to impress.


No matter which fragrance you choose, I'm sure your mom will love it. And don't forget – the best gift you can give her is your love and appreciation. Happy Mother's Day!
