Mother's Day: Ten Top Rated Perfumes She'll Love!

2 May, 2019 - 08:39pm by - Head Pixie | 12 Comments

Compiled by BR Tabatha

Mother's Day is on the horizon. The time of year when we can make up for being a bit lazy on the mother appreciation front and buy her something fab. A treat she wouldn't usually get herself. Something that says 'I love you so I got you something special, which is why I'm your favourite child.'

Nothing ticks the box quite like a carefully selected perfume. However, buying a perfume can be a touch tricky. What's good? What's not? Which has the same notes as her current favourites so that you can say 'I know what you like, here's something same but different. See, I really am your favourite child, because I made an effort'.

Luckily for us we've a bunch of fabulous perfume reviews to help us along. So what's the most beloved? What could float your mum's boat? Here are the Top Ten fragrances as rated by Beauty Review members.

10. Wonderstruck Enchanted by Taylor Swift

They say:  Taylor, herself, is the muse for Wonderstruck Enchanted—forever captivating and always confident. Wonderstruck Enchanted continues the magical journey, from the first spark to that moment when you know you’re enchanted. Notes  Wild Berries, Passion Fruit, Pink Poppy, Peony, Champaca Petals, White Freesia, White Musk, Vanilla, Blond Woods.  Style Charming. Magical. Captivating. 

You say:  I love this perfume but i may be a bit bias as i love anything that fruity and girly! The best thing about this perfume is that it lasts for ages. I put it on in the morning and ill have people commenting on it at night.  BR Member - lady_k


9. Dior Hypnotic Poison

They say:  The mystery of DIOR's legendary forbidden fruit lives on in DIOR Hypnotic Poison, in a magical, modern philter that blends femininity with boldness. The contrasting facets – intoxicating bitter almond and carvi, opulent Sambac jasmine, mysterious Jacarandra and sensuous vanilla and musk– make for a compelling, bewitching fragrance fusion. Intoxicating and extravagant.

You say:  I got given a minature of this and I loved it so much, more than any other fragrance i've ever sampled. I had to have more! This fragrance is very vanillary, super smooth vanilla with a touch of spice. Anyone who loves vanilla is sure to love this fragrance! It's quite a strong smelling fragrance, intoxicating and seductive but sweet. This is my first Dior fragrance and it's totally convinced me that I need to get my hands on the other Dior poison fragrances also!  BR Member - Marcel


8. Meow! by Katy Perry

They say:  MEOW! by KATY PERRY commands a soft sexuality appropriate for use during any time of day. Its signature comes from a pairing of honeysuckle and pear with the backdrop of creamy vanilla, musk and amber. 

You say:  It is my favourite perfume! It smells so sweet and nice, the smell lasts all day and I always get compliments about it. It smells so amazing and is perfect for both daytime and night time as it has a refreshing girly scent, but also a hint of vanilla and I find it perfect for any occasion.  BR Member - Dayna



7. Dolce & Gabbana The One EDP

They say:  THE ONE by Dolce & Gabbana like all of the fragrances of D&G house, is a 'fragrance with character', special and alluring. Its oriental floral-fruity composition is very warm and sensual with powdery vanilla trace. The colour of the fragrance perfectly matches its tone.

You say:  I absolutely adore this fragrance! At first it seems rather strong but after just a few mins it softens down and smells heavenly! It has a warm oriental starting note with hints of floral. As it warms to your body it starts smelling a bit more of vanilla and fruits. It is perfect for everyday use but equally perfect for special occasions, something that not many fragrances can do. 'The One' lasts all day and you will be bound to get compliments!  BR Member - raniwelsh


6. Coco Chanel Mademoiselle Eau de Parfum

They say:  Sexy, fresh Oriental fragrance recalls the irrepressible spirit of the young 'Coco' Chanel. A feeling of luxuriance is achieved through two exclusive ingredients that form the signature for all CHANEL parfums Jasmine Absolute and May Rose Absolute. These delicate flowers bursting with confidence are highlighted by a touch of Iris from Florence. 

You say:  I've been using this as my signature scent for the last 9 years. My 4 year old son thinks this is what 'mummy' smells like. I feel glamorous and sophisticated when I'm wearing it and always get comments on what it is. It's a beautiful, feminine scent and the bottle lasts for ages since you only need a little as the smell is strong. LOVE IT!  BR Member - BusyMum


5. Marc Jacobs Daisy

They say:  Fresh and feminine, MARC JACOBS DAISY is a playful bright and alluring scent. It captivates with the luscious freshness of wild strawberry, then blooms with the modern vintage edge of velvety violet petals and finishes with a luminous blend of gardenia and jasmine. The white accords of birch and cedarwood add a bit of intensity.

You say:  This is my favourite perfume. I got it for Xmas and wear it every day - and love it so much I made my mum buy it too. It's sweet and sexy, light but noticeable, and has that fun, playful - but not too young - note that Marc Jacobs does so well. The scent is light but noticeable, and not cloyingly sweet or heavy. It lasts well into the day as well. Since I started wearing it several people I know have followed suit, as it is so easy to wear, light, and fresh.  BR Member - trudijoy



4. Reb'l Fleur by Rihanna

They say:  The fragrance is an intense and daring fruity chypre, composed of sophisticated floral notes tuberose, violet and hibiscus - with a splash of coconut water - over the light and smooth base, the combination of the final notes evokes the impression of warm skin.

You say:  Definitely a long lasting fragrance. A small spray goes a long way! A warm sexy fragrance with vanilla and fruits, not a light fresh crisp scent, more deep, just lovely. I'm hooked on it and always receive compliments whenever I wear this fragrance.  BR Member - mccash7



3. Juicy Couture Viva la Juicy

They say:  Flirtatious and charming, this scent is inspired by the glamorous girl who is always the life of the party, the Viva la Juicy girl finds couture in the everyday. Viva la Juicy combines delicious wild berries and mandarin with creamy vanilla, praline, jasmine, and honeysuckle. Embracing the signature Juicy addiction, Viva la Juicy is both playful and glamorous, boldly bottled with Juicy charms and rocked in fuschia wrap.

You say:  I have been buying this perfume for years. Definitely my signature fragrance, it's not over powering like most sweet perfumes which I love but I do have to re apply because it is a light fragrance. I love wearing this in the summer, I think it's a summer perfume but I tend to wear it all year round. I get compliments showered on me and who doesnt love that?  BR Member - Naydz



2. Chanel Chance

They say:  The unexpected floral fragrance by CHANEL, for women who know that in order to be lucky, you have to believe in chance! The emphasis on the floral and vanilla notes makes CHANCE Parfum a more lush and voluptuous version of the fragrance. 

You say:  It leaves me feeling sophisticated and classy but sweet enough to be wearing it, anytime & anywhere. I didn't go wrong on getting this fragrance and I believe that I can recommend it to whomever wants a warm and sweet yet sophisticated scent on them that'll last them all day. This is in a class of its own.  BR Member - K3r1pakai


1. Stella McCartney Stella

They say:  The first fragrance by STELLA McCARTNEY, inspired by the fragile beauty of a rose, is contrasted by sensuality of amber. Playing with the opposition of the masculine and the feminine as well, the bottle’s lines, both precious and sharp, frame a seemingly infinite plum dégradé.

You say:  This has been my go to perfume for years and years, it always gets a compliment and friends know I'm in a room as it's become my signature scent. This is light enough for summer snd moves effortlessly into winter to give a hint of fun and floral reminders of the last season. Has also moved up the decades with me without shouting out it's too young for you!! An all rounder that is my wardrobe staple forget the scarves and accessories!   BR Member - debjpage

OOh I am really excited to try some of these perfumes. Quite a few of these I haven't tried on before. Thanks for the great list!

15th August, 2019

Mmm and every mommy loves a fancy perfume

7th May, 2019

I haven't tried many of those fragrances but I love the bottles.

6th May, 2019

I've given my mom perfume before and she has several bottles but she has sensitive skin and doesn't reach for them very often. I did give here a Pure Fiji rollerball awhile back and she liked that.

5th May, 2019

My Mum loves Yves Saint Laurent Cinema and Givenchy Organza and I love Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy and Giorgio Armani Code. I usually get Mum perfume for Christmas and make a pamper pack with her favourite wine for Mother's Day.

4th May, 2019

My Mum loves the original Poison Perfume and Opium so will pick up a bottle for her for mothers day!

3rd May, 2019

I love perfume! I'm stll into Giorgio but I also have a bottle of Beautiful I haven't opened.

3rd May, 2019

I only know of one perfume my mum loved but it was back in the late 80s/early 90s. I don't think it's made anymore, can't remember what its called either.

3rd May, 2019

I won't giving my mum or mum-in-law perfumes this mothers day. They have their own unique taste of fragrance they prefer using.

3rd May, 2019

My mum sticks to her usual perfume but I don't think I've ever bought her one for mothers day. Ever since she did the BR L'oreal skin care trial, she quite likes me buying her the L'oreal mothers day gift sets to keep her in supply of her favourite creams etc. :)

2nd May, 2019

My Mum Doesn’t enjoy perfumes like I do. So I won’t be buying any fragrances. But me on the other hand! Love Coco Chanel.

2nd May, 2019

Aww.. lots of choices here.. But i do need to be careful with perfumes. My mum can’t stand scents that are too strong, as it makes her feel dizzy. I get that sometimes as well.

3rd May, 2019

Some perfumes and aftershaves can make me feel really ill. Brut (men) is the absolute worst.

3rd May, 2019

My Mum loved flowery perfumes, like Le jardin, but she also liked Beautiful.

4th May, 2019

Giorgio is a gorgeous perfume isn't it! (:

4th May, 2019

My favourite. Avon did a similar scent in solid form called 'Candid" and it smelt similar. Yummy.
