Nothing makes me sadder than all of the “15% off of our perfumes for Mother’s Day!” emails that I’ve been getting for the past two months. I would love nothing more than to shower my mom with perfume for Mother’s Day, but she doesn’t wear perfume out of respect for my father’s alleged allergies. If my mom did permit perfume-related gifts, I think that I would choose a tea scent (she’s a big tea drinker). Something like Jo Malone Earl Grey and Cucumber, Atelier Cologne Oolang Infini, or L’Artisan The Pour un Ete.
But since she won’t, all I can do is plan my furbaby’s Mother’s Day present to me (I’m thinking that it’s going to be What We Do In Paris Is Secret, but she wants it to be a surprise) and live vicariously through all of y’all! So spill: what are you getting yo mama for Mother’s Day? Any perfume presents? Or, if your mother is 50 shades of Joan Crawford and you’d rather not talk about her, what are your furbabies and/or actual babies getting you?
