Mom approved fragrances from Chloé, Elizabeth Arden, Nina Ricci, Guerlain and Calvin Klein!

I know some people find it really difficult to pick out a scent for their mother but I'm lucky, my mom and I have polar opposite tastes when it comes to scents! So when I smell something beautifully floral it tends to be a winner gift for her - and at least she never has to worry about my stealing her fragrance (or her stealing mine)!
So for something classically beautiful and floral these would be my Mother's Day choices this year:

Chloé Rose Edition EDP 50ml - $90 - a bouquet of roses with a velvety heart interlacing floral notes of magnolia and lily of the valley, enhanced with honeyed accents of amber and cedar wood.The scent may not be my thing but I do love the packaging with bright pink ribbon!

Available at Holt Renfrew, select Bay Department stores, Murale, Sephora, Mills, Ogilvy’s, and drugstores across Canada.
Elizabeth Arden Petty Hot - 50ml EDP - $63 - with top notes of red currant, fresh mandarin, blood orange, red apple and freesia; heart notes of Queen of the Night, peony, pimento blossom as well as Petelia and Georgywood molecules; and a base of amber, white patchouli, tonka bean, sandalwood and musky Cosmone molecule.
Nina Ricci L'Air EDP 50ml - $80 - 100ml - $110 - this successor to the original is a floral fragrance with light and airy notes composed of intertwining notes of honeysuckle, jasmine, magnolia, violet extract and powdery notes.

Available at The Bay and Shoppers Drug Mart
Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Jasminora EDT 75ml - $60 - features notes of galbanum, bergamot, cyclamen, jasmine, lily of the valley, musk and amber.

Available at Guerlain boutiques, Sephora, Shoppers Drug Mart, The Bay and Sears.

Calvin Klein Beauty EDP - 50 ml - $89 - 100ml - $115 - a new interpretation of a lily - a neo-lily - which is the heart and soul of this new fragrance.  Like the flower, the fragrance is meant to be sophisticated, the essence of femininity as well as radiant and powerful.  Adding to the neo-lily are ambrette seed top notes, jasmine mid notes and a dry down of cedarwood.

What fragrance are you getting your mom for Mother's Day?
