    Default Mother's Day on Sunday. Did you buy your Mom a fragrance???

    If so, what?

    I introduced my mom to Creed Spring Flowers about 8 years back. It's the only perfume she has ever liked or wanted to wear.

    This mother's day, I got her a little upgrade... the limited edition Les Floralies by Creed. I got a sample of this and was in awe of its composition and staying power...


    LES FLORALIES

    With Japan's imperial flower, chrysanthemum, plum blossoms and Japanese tea, Les Floralies evokes the calming air and tranquil spirit of the royal, ancient tea ceremony that the master perfumer and his son enjoyed in Tokyo.

    Classification: Green / Floral

    Top note: Chrysanthemum, Japan's royal symbol, blended with leaves of the Asian star magnolia.
    Middle note: Jasmine, Japanese tea and Asian lilac.
    Bottom note: Bulgarian rose and plum blossom.

    I introduced my mom to Creed but she was not a big fan because of price. Oh well.

    I've introduced my mom to both Dolce Vita and Tendre Poison on Mothers Days in the past,
    or was it birthdays? I don't remember ...
    This year it will be nothing but flowers, though, I'm a very poor Grand Duke as of now.
    I'm turning 30 ... rrr ... next month, and it's gonna be expensive!

    I know my Mom would like a bottle of Shalimar EDP. Shalimar is her favorite.

    Mom seems to have lost all interest in scent. I'm not sure if she isn't able to smell as much or if she is still just depressed from Dad's death in March. I think both are true.

    But whenever I have them, I bring her flowers from our garden (yesterday, a big bunch of lilies of the valley; next month it will be our fragrant garden roses.)

    I have gotten Mitsouko EdP for her, although I am not sure if she will like it.

    No matter, though: If she doesn't like it, I will keep it for myself and get her something else.

    I believe this is known in the biz as a "win-win".

    Kept it simple. She loves Crabtree & Evelyn Lavender Water and Roger & Gallet Extra Vielle, goes through them regularly. So I got her those.

    Got her White Aoud by Montale. Hopefully it arrives by tomorrow.

    On the other hand, Shalimar EDP would not have been a bad idea either.

    My mom isn't "into" fragrances. She wears what I've bought her over the years when she goes to church but that's about it. She's into crafts & sewing. I think she would like a gift certificate to Joanne's Fabrics.
