Mother's Day - Gift Different This Year

Mother's Day - Gift Different This Year

Ah Mother’s Day. It comes round every year, and the gift of fragrance is no doubt an appreciated gesture by many mums out there. But with perfume being such a personal choice and all that, it’s important to consider the mum you’re gifting it to, right?

Sure, we’ve got the usual floral fragrances and fruity scents, but we’re also the connoisseurs of niche here at e-scents which means we have an appreciation for the unique; for the quirky. We wouldn’t feel right following the crowd



Don’t get us wrong, we know a good floral fragrance can be a real delight, but we also recognise that not all mums or motherly figures are into that. Some mums like to stand out and appreciate something a bit different. That’s where we come in

We’re here to encourage you to break from the norm, don’t follow the crowd. Yes, Mother’s Day is in springtime and the chief colours you’ll see in the card shops are lilacs and pinks, but the joy of niche fragrance is that you can really try to capture her essence without hitting those stereotypes




For the mum who likes to experiment: Try 27 87 Perfumes’ Discovery Set, £35.00

An understated box full of big scents. Containing 2ml vials of #hashtag, elixir de bombe, wandervogel, hamaca, genetic bliss, and sonar, there’s hours of fun to be spent spritzing and layering different combinations. It’s the full collection, all in one place

For the mum who’s one of a kind: Try 27 87 Perfume’s Genetic Bliss, £185.00 87ml

A scent as singular as she is, this molecular perfume is designed to adapt to your body’s unique natural scent, but with a touch of woodiness at the base. This one smells different on everyone, revealing the wearer’s very own individuality. Her fragrance fingerprint, if you will





For the mum who’s a bit spiritual:
Try Hyssop Extrait de Parfum Roll-On by PHOTO/GENICS+CO, £75.00

A roll on for on-the-go applications, this black glass bottle holds the gender-neutral scent of purification. Inspired by cannabis and brutalism, it smells of the crisp air at first light, the holy herb of safekeeping and optimism. A hint of mint makes it nice and fresh tooTop of Form

For the mum who’s house proud: Try Linari’s Lilia Reed Diffuser, £75.00 500ml

An opaque satin flacon made from Italian glass, not only will this add a touch of elegance, but it will fill her home with an infatuating composition of fresh bergamot and warm sandalwood. There’s a delightful herbal accent of cayenne pepper too, creating a scent as luminous as she is, but that she can share with all who come to visit

Happy gifting this Mother’s Day
