It seems like a lot to manage but it's all very intuitive and enjoyable (for my neurotic self anyway). So many times customers come into the shop looking for their new fragrance and I can't imagine an entire season of just one fragrance. When they can't choose between Baltic Amber or Acadia I say get them both! That way they can enjoy whatever fragrance their soul is craving at the time. As they say, variety is the spice of life. Live it up people! Or smell it up? Anyway...
At Thanksgiving I like to transition the fragrances from Nest Wasabi Pear to Nest Wild Oats & Bourbon to Nest Pumpkin Chai. Yes, it's a Nest Fest. With Mother's Day quickly approaching, I thought it would be fun to come up with the same type of "fragrance menu" for the day. So here we go...

Aura Bubbly candle. Heaven! I know you're thinking - What? What?! Chocolates at breakfast? Yes and absolutely. Dark chocolate works any time and all the time. The Breakfast of Champion Moms. Aura Bubbly is effervescent, festive and fresh. They perfect way to start her celebratory day.
Voluspa Macaron. Mid-day, when she typically wants to pick things up and get thing done, this cozy, comforting scent will help her relax and let the day unfold slowly. I like Macaron because it isn't overly sweet or heavy and it won't give her a belly ache. It's sophisticated and delicate just like the exquisite French cookies. Speaking of cookies, it would be lovely if you treated her to a box of fine macarons for her afternoon snack... just a thought.

Unless your Mom loves a specific flower (gardenia, tuberose, jasmine, rose...) I would go for this one. It covers everything and smells amazing. When the house quiets down and the kids are in bed, she can sip some wine as she's is surrounded by the scent of an intricate floral bouquet and feel like the most luxurious Mom on the planet - just as she should.
Oh, yeah, and don't forget more chocolates. They are key.
