Fragrances for Mother’s day

This will be the start of posts this week for gift idea’s for mother’s day, or something to treat yourself!

I unfortunately rarely get the pleasure of picking out gifts for my own mother as she decides what she wants and gives us kids the lay-by receipts, I guess its a way to get what you want.

Holidays are my favourite time of year to actually buy presents for myself as so many gift sets and great deals are released.

I’m going to cover as many price ranges as possible and just warning you but there will probably be a few of these posts, so bare with me!

First gift ideas off the beauty bandwagon will be fragrances!!

Juicy Couture Couture Couture Gift Set $129 (RRP)


A lovely fragrance which is a bit more mature than the previous fragrances from them, (I actually already reviewed the fragrance here)

The box contains The new Couture Couture EDP 50ml and a 200ml body lotion

The two items are valued at $180!


Marc Jacobs Lola Gift Set $130 (RRP)  image

Containing EDP 50ml, Body Lotion 75ml and Shower Gel 75ml




Marc Jacobs Daisy Gift Set $90image (RRP)


Containing EDT 50ml, Body Lotion 75ml and Shower Gel 75ml

Valued at $127.50!




MOR Marshmallow Body Oil $44.95 (RRP)

Whilst not quite a fragrance this body oil certainly acts like one. I love this, my mother bought it for herself a couple of months ago and loves it. I had full intentions of stealing it until I realised I was allergic, damn karma!!




MOR Little Luxuries Perfume Oils $19.95 (RRP)

I have already reviewed the Lychee Flower here but they are available in a range of fragrances including Belladonna, Cassis Noir, Marshmallow and Snow Gardenia.These are great to add to a gift basket you could make up.
