Here are the 7 best mother’s day perfumes to gift your mom:

1. Prada Candy

3. Annick Goutal Rose Splendide

Rose Splendide Perfume by Annick Goutal

 A bouquet of roses withers and fade, never mind it’s the ultimate cliché, so if your mom loves roses, gift her Rose Splendide, a picture-perfect rose, that uses the expensive rare rose de mai that only blooms in the month of May (her month, after all!) With a fresh, light citrus opening with hints of basil, this spring rose scent lends a slightly herbal feel.  It’s very smooth and beautifully rounded from top to base notes. All day longevity and excellent for evening wear.
