Suggest me perfumes for a young mother, her child is 1 year and a half old, she's 27, next month is her birthday (that's when she'll turn 27, actually, so I'm thinking to buy her a perfume). She's very caring about her son, maybe a bit exagerated sometimes, overprotecting him.So I thought that something that inspires tenderness and care would fit her. Uhm... something that would also be ok to use around a baby.
I don;t know much about her taste in perfumes, sometimes she uses avon Celebre, and at her weding she was wearing paco rabanne Ultraviolet.
thanks a lot!

Something soft and gentle, maybe Sonoma Scent Studio's Opal? It's a vanilla sandalwood musk.
Hearts starve as well as bodies; give us bread, but give us roses.
Bulgari Omnia Jade and the new Prada Eau d'Ambree are very soft and gentle scents. The Prada is especially pleasant, even though it is not ground breaking.
Why not Bvlgari's Petits et Mamans - designed to be shared between mother and child (it has been hypoallergenically tested, and is alcohol free)...
L'Occitane have a line called Mom & Baby Water for the mother and child. Very gentle and light, I would presume. They have an entire line of mom and baby items.
BTW, I caution against using scent in the first weeks (perhaps months) after childbirth because scent is used to bond infant and mother. You might laugh and say we are not dogs or horses, but any mother can tell you there is nothing so wonderful as the scent of an infant, esp. your own. I'd check on a doctor for this. (Ditto for the smell of a young puppy!)
Here are the scent notes:
Mom & Baby Water
Head: kumquat, sweet almond.
Heart: yellow freesia, orange blossom, white jasmin.
Base: mimosa, white musc.

Asha's suggestion is excellent.....the Prada l'Eau Ambree is soft and beautiful :-)

another vote for the Prada amber..and also the infusion d'iris..both pleasant/elegant/soft,but pleasing enough!
