With Mother’s Day around the corner, we asked our Beauty Stylists to share their picks for Mother’s Day fragrance gifts.

kate spade new york live colorfully is one of Nordstrom’s latest exclusive fragrances, and is perfect for spring and Mother’s Day. Mom’s inner sweetheart will shine with crisp, energizing notes of mandarin and pink water lily, and she’ll drift away to a tropical paradise with tiare flower, gardenia, coconut water and Tahitian vanilla. ‘live colorfully’ is feminine and flirty enough for an evening out, yet understatedly fresh and elegant for daytime too. She’ll even delight in the bottle, with its signature kate spade bow.” — Jennifer Kochenour, The Plaza at King of Prussia, PA

“What woman wouldn’t want to wear Jimmy Choo FLASH? This new fragrance set from the coveted shoe designer launched this spring and is exclusive to Nordstrom. FLASH evokes the promise and excitement of a night on the town, and the bottle looks like jewelry for a vanity, with a bulb that catches the light and dazzles the room. The lasting power of this scent is incredible, prevailing long into the evening and smelling as clean and aromatic as when it was first spritzed on. Jimmy Choo is the best accessory for Mother’s Day.” — Alesha Gerner, The Mall at Wellington Green, FL

“New Jo Malone London Osmanthus Blossom is the perfect pairing of citrusy top notes and a sweet honey-peach finish. What I love most about Jo Malone scents is how customizable they are. By mixing two you can create the ultimate one-of-a-kind fragrance to fit your mom’s personality. For a sweeter effect, try mixing Osmanthus Blossom with Nectarine Blossom & Honey. Does she prefer something a little more green or tart? Try blending in Blackberry & Bay Cologne: the effect is simply mouthwatering and completely unique.” — Elyse Reneau, South Coast Plaza, CA

I Love NY for Mothers by Bond No. 9 is an easy-to-wear, easy-to-love fragrance. Because Bond No. 9 adores New York and mothers, they designed a fragrance to celebrate both. Upgrade your Mother’s Day gift from a bunch of flowers to a gorgeous fragrance she will carry with her all day! A showcase of lily, jasmine and rose, this gift will continue to bloom far past May. Top notes of tangerine and touches of soft amber and sandalwood ensure this will be a gift they will never forget.” — Iris Brostowicz, Michigan Avenue, IL

“The scent in Bottega Veneta’s Fragrance Gift Set evokes the memory of the first rain of spring. Notes of musk and moss create a warm happiness that reminds you of your grandmother’s garden. Bottega Veneta is the perfect fragrance for the elegant and sophisticated woman, and this gift set will make your mother feel extra cherished and loved. Even better, the set includes a fragrance mini perfect for her handbag! To enhance the inspiring qualities of the fragrance, pair the set with a bouquet of fresh flowers or perhaps a pair of Hunter boots!” — Joy Schmitz, Mall of America, MN

Viktor & Rolf’s Flowerbomb Set is a great Mother’s Day gift. The fragrance has a long-lasting scent that stays on all day and is one that men LOVE. Its unique sweet floral scent is perfect year-round. Best of all, the Flowerbomb set offers so many choices for layering: whether it’s lotion or body wash, there are ways to apply the scent all times of day. It is definitely my go-to fragrance no matter what!” — Paula Xiong, Mall of Georgia, GA
