Perfumes – Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Pacifica Beauty Perfume*press samples, affiliate links, I bought this*

It would seem that perfume is an extremely popular Mother’s Day gift, and since I am a scent obsessed Mom, I thought I’d share my favorite perfume picks of the Spring and Summer with you! Pacifica is a brand that I’ve loved for ages (remember when they were in Sephora?). I’m so happy to see them growing, and available in both ULTA and Target now! Pacifica Perfumes are cruelty free, gluten free and suitable for sensitive noses. Pacifica uses a natural grain alcohol for their spray and roll on fragrances. The solid perfume is made with coconut and soy wax, and each Pacifica fragrance uses essential and natural oils.

Pacifica Perfume - Coconut, Gardenia, Lilac, Spanish Amber and Mexican Cocoa

One thing I love about Pacifica scents (there are many things to love!), is that they layer so well. You have endless options when you combine and layer scents. Some of my favorite combinations involve the coconut, vanilla, cocoa and amber scents. I love sweet scents, and use the Indian Coconut Nectar perfume as a base for almost anything. The French Lilac scent brings me right back to my grandmother’s yard as a little girl. It’s the most spot on lilac scent that I’ve ever come across. I have fond memories of lilacs, and Pacifica’s French Lilac perfume invokes nostalgic emotions whenever I wear it.

Sunset in Salina, Tulip Perfumes, Rainbow Honey Sweet Talk, Prada Candy L'eauA few of my other sweetly scented favorites include Sweet Talk from Rainbow Honey, Dolce & Gabbana Sunset in Salina, Prada Candy L’eau, and Lemon Sugar from Tulip Perfume.
Tulip is a brand that’s new to me, comes from the North Cali coast. The entire range is free from sulfates, dyes, parabens, phthalates, gluten, and cruelty free/vegan. I have the Lemon Sugar fragrance, which is glycerin based, and therefore super long-lasting. This scent has become one of my most treasured favorites, with its notes of cotton candy, lemon, bergamot, raspberry, caramel, vanilla and musk. It’s a sexy sweet scent, that is just so “me!” They are having a 25% off sale right now for Mother’s Day!

Do you have any scents that are on your wishlist? Do you have any scents that remind you of a specific time or place? I have chosen a few sets below that I think would also make great gifts.

    I LOVE Pacifica perfumes, the solids are great too. I like the roller ball for my purse and they all smell nice! i have always wanted to try Dolce & Gabbana Light blue I see it a lot in peoples favorites but I have never bought it. Great picks!

      The original D&G isn’t a “me” scent, but like this LE summer version! It’s a bit less aquatic and airy. :)
