Fragrance-Inspired Gifts Guaranteed To Last Longer Than Flowers


While there’s no denying mum should be spoiled all year round, Mother’s Day gives us a very special chance to show her just how much she is loved and appreciated.

Sure, a bunch of flowers is beautiful and can brighten up her living room for a few days, but this year, we want to give her gifts that are as long-lasting and memorable as her love.

With fragrance so closely linked to memory, we’re making mum’s day one she won’t forget with these scent-sational gift ideas.

For Her To Wear On Special Days

Gucci Bloom Eau de Toilette
Gucci Bloom Eau De Toilette, 100mL, $175, available at Myer.

The perfect fragrance for the woman who taught us to love and celebrate our true selves, Gucci Bloom Eau De Toilette is a soft blend of orange blossom, jasmine, tuberose and Rangoon creeper, enlightened by sweetened neroli.

Capturing the scent of a thriving garden filled with an abundance of blooming flowers, the perfume is like a fresh bouquet that keeps on giving.
