A Scent for Mom this Mother’s Day
A mother is the cornerstone of every home. She is fervent encourager, appreciator, and protector. A mother is a friend, confidant and her love is unlike any other. She is the one that can take the place of all others, but whose place no other can take.
Perfumes are an emotional gift, it serves as a personal scent memory and choosing the perfect fragrance for your mom this Mother’s Day will take a bit of thought. We all have an idea of what our mom smells like, whether it is an actual perfume, or a more vague scent description like “sweet” or “powdery”.
To help you find that perfect scent for your mom, Eden Perfumes have listed a few different scent categories to steer you in the right direction, whether you are looking for something very specific or completely different.
Woodsy scents are rich, warm and long lasting. Ladies’ woody scents are often balanced with a sweet vanilla to make them more feminine, and will suit a mom who holds the family together, her branches extend far and wide and she anchors and supports all the people she loves.
