A mother's love is special. Not only are they our support through the good and bad times, but they are our friend, confidant, peacemaker, and emotional nurturer. Mothers tirelessly work to ensure we are equipped with the knowledge and abilities to have a fulfilled life, and it’s our turn to make sure they know they are loved and appreciated.
In doing so, we rounded up a few of our favorite newest fragrances to gift mom with this Mother’s Day. These new scents are instant mood-lifters that prove your love is straight from the heart. The perfumes range from floral to spicy to woodsy, and there’s even one that supposedly smells like a rainbow—great for the woman who brings much joy and color to your life. Take a look and even find one or two for yourself.
For the Mysterious Mom
Is the woman in your life colorful and vibrant like the rainbow? This scent uses materials of every color in the rainbow and the end result is so refreshing. The notes of green cedar, blue almond flower, red mandarin, and yellow elemi resin are sure to evoke warm, happy vibes.
This botanical and amber fragrance is inspired by the celestial gardens of the Middle East and Moorish Spain. The fruity notes of bergamot will send her into a trance, but she'll also appreciate the glass vessel that's decorated by French artist Koralie, who crafted the entrance of a paradise garden.

Looking for mom to feel like royalty? This fragrance is crafted from the Crown Perfumery Company archives in 1925, and was famously worn by Winston Churchill. Its defining scent of clary sage, grey amber and sandalwood was oved by the British, global royalty and celebrities at the time.
