From fine fragrance to divine diamonds and celebratory fizz - here's our guide of specially curated gifts any much loved mum would appreciate.
Gucci Flora Gorgeous Jasmine
Gucci Flora Gorgeous Jasmine Eau de Parfum is wonderfully romantic and memorable and hints of warm summer evenings to come. It's an elegant floral with notes of heady Sandalwood and Benzoin, Mandarin Essence and Magnolia Accord.

100ml EDP from The Perfume Shop
Issey Miyake L’Eau d’Issey Pivoine
A radiant symbol of the return of sunny days, peonies have an unparalleled charm. Unfortunately, their delightful scent cannot be directly extracted from the flower. But perfumer Marie Salamagne turned even this obstacle into an opportunity to reconstitute a blend that would mimic its vibrant radiance and colourful petals. The result is a naturally floral – and aquatic aromatic blast of spring with a unique peony blend made entirely of natural ingredients like rose and pear. White raspberries add a deliciously juicy and mischievous touch to the bouquet, which is rooted in a cedarwood base that magnifies and completes its fragrance trail. Issey Miyake L’Eau d’Issey Pivoine100ml - £92. 50ml - £68. Available only after Mother's Day from The Perfume Shop from March 27th 2023 and nationally from April 16th - but such a lovely fragrance, I'm sure your mum won't mind waiting for this special scented gift.
Prada Paradoxe encapsulates the very essence of Prada - the refillable Paradoxe bottle reinvents the most iconic code of the brand, the triangle logo. A bold yet feminine floral amber fragrance with notes of precious jasmine and neroli, softened with a romantic and long lasting musk.
90mls EDP £118 from The Perfume Shop (comes with a free gift too)
