A Last-Minute Gift for the Mother Who Has Everything

Even the hardest to please moms will go crazy for Jo Malone's newest fragrance collection this Mother's Day.

With a beauty writer for a daughter, my mom has it better than most on birthdays, mother's days, and any other occasion that calls for a little pampering. One trip to the Beauty Bets closet for samples — she's especially fond of lip-plumping glosses and firming eye creams (I've taught her well) — is usually all it takes to make her day.

If, however, I had the sort of mother who wore St. John instead of scrubs, and who went to the spa instead of digging in the garden, I would be making a beeline for a Jo Malone boutique right about now. The fragrance house's limited-edition collection, London Blooms, is about as decadent yet elegant as Mother's Day gifts come. The three English garden inspired scents—Peony & Moss, White Lilac & Rhubarb and Iris & Lady Moore—smell like a spring day and come in the most beautiful botanical-illustrated bottles. If you can picture one on your mother's vanity, then you can bet it's the perfect gift for her.

Elizabeth Dehn is the editor-in-chief of Beauty Bets, an award-winning blog chock-full of product reviews, wellness tips, and DIY ideas.
