Last minute gifts: Three fragrances to sweeten up your Mother’s Day


If you’ve already purchased the perfect Mother’s Day gift for this Sunday, bravo! For the rest of the us who haven’t had the chance to shop for mom and are planning a stroll through a local department store this weekend, here are three classic fragrances you can’t go wrong with for mom.

Isaac Mizrahi’s Fabulous: The fashion designer created his Fabulous fragrance with his own mother in mind. His mother only had a few, classic perfumes and he captured the essence of his mother’s timeless scents in the fragrance, down to the retro pink atomizer. What it smells like: a blend of citrus, peony, and musk.

Coco Mademoiselle Parfum Chanel: With the rich history behind Chanel’s fragrances, you really can’t go wrong with Chanel anything as a gift. The bottle is designed in a vintage style that is meant to be shown off on a dresser or vanity. What it smells like: Sicilian oranges, bergamot, rose, patchouli and grapefruit.

Prada Infusion d’Iris Eau de Parfum: A subtle but sophisticated scent, Prada’s d’Iris was inspired by gardens in Tuscany. If pink isn’t your mother’s thing, go (light) green with this fragrance. What it smells like: Iris, neroli, violet and Virginia cedar.
