Mother's Day Fragrances: The Golden Edit

Mother's Day is this Sunday, and I've always said that fragrances make the best gifts (as long as you match the right scent with the right person). So I've put together a list of fragrances that are golden themed. Some of them are new and some of them aren't, but these just happen to be a few of my favourite scents, and Mothers always deserve the best... 
Top Notes: Orange Blossom
Heart Notes: Jasmine Absolute, Patchouli 
Base Notes: Virginia Cedar, Rose, White Honey

Elie Saab Le Parfum is a warm, elegant fragrance that opens up as rather clean but bold at the same time. The Jasmine and Patchouli notes are the superstars in this fragrance, making it so luxurious without it being overpowering. If your mum loves her warm florals or Middle Eastern-inspired scents, the ultra feminine Elie Saab Le Parfum will make the perfect gift this Mother's Day. 

Top notes: Sicilian Bergamot, Mandarin Oil, and Liquer de Cassis
Heart notes: Rose de Mai Absolute, Neroli Absolute, and Egyptian Jasmine Absolute 
Base notes: Patchouli Oil, Blond Woods, Amber, Ocarnox, and Vanille Absolute
I know so many women who are fans of Si, regardless of their age. It's a beautiful chypre fragrance that's proved to be immensely popular. I love how feminine, and luxurious it is; the scent embodies female power, confidence, and elegance. It's a bit of everything to be honest- floral, woody, and warm so it's definitely unique.I love wearing Si in the evenings and for special occasions as personally, I prefer something a little fresh for daytime. 

Top notes:  Salty Vanilla Accord
Heart notes: Jasmine and Gingerlily, 
Base notes: Ambregris, Bois De Cachmire Ambregris, and Cashmere Wood

Inspired by Greek Goddesses, Olympea takes you on a venture of victory and championship through a sweet floral scent. It really is a beautiful warm fragrance that's not offensive and is very different compared to Paco Rabanne's previous fragrances that had potential to be overwhelming. Olympea is an elegant scent and in my opinion, the elegance reaches it's prime when the fragrance's oriental base notes start to come through. 

Top notes: Ginger lily
Heart notes: Rose and Sandalwood as the heart
Base notes: Honey Amber Accord

Jimmy Choo Illicit has been a favourite of mine for over a year! It's an uplifting, spicy feminine fragrance that's not too bold or overpowering. It's spicy in just the right way. The alluring modern oriental scent is also perfect for both day and night occasions. My Mum loves this scent, and I'm sure yours will too. 

Top notes: Honeyed peach, Freesia
Heart notes: Osmanthus flower 
Base notes: Cocoa 

After the success of BOSS The Scent For Him, Hugo Boss launched a fruity floral version 'for her' last year. The peach and freesia notes are the most prominent, making this fragrance an addictive one that's sweet and light. BOSS The Scent For Her is the perfect Spring time fragrance, making it great as a Mother's Day gift.
