My last trip to Sephora ended in a surprise fragrance purchase. I might have mentioned this before, but I'm a complete sucker for Burberry fragrances. I have not met one that I don't like, and these are the only fragrances I've ever "used up" outside of that one Liz Claiborne bottle in high school.
So when the fragrance sales lady hit me up while I was cleaning tester samples off my hand - I was putty in her hands. She spritzed the two latest Burberry scents for me Burberry Brit Sheer and Burberry Classic Summer. I liked them both. The Sheer was just that, fresh with scent of light peony and grapes. The Summer had me at the get go - warm and citrus with a hint of rose. It was love at first sniff and there was no way I walking out without it. Fortunately I had a bit of left over gift card cash to help me along, though it's pretty reasonably priced at $50 for a 1.7oz bottle.
I know fragrance is a personal thing, but if you're looking for a great Mother's Day gift - I'd highly suggest either of these for the fabulous women in our lives that are our mothers. Neither is overpowering, and both are perfect for summer. My mother has the best garden in town - so almost any scent with rose or peony makes me think of her.
