Mother’s Day Beauty Gift Guide — Part 2, Fragrances

Fragrance is a classic gift for Mother’s Day.  I know a lot of people shy away from giving their loved ones new fragrances, since you never really know if they will like it.  But if you know what types of fragrance notes she likes, you can find a new scent she may just love!

My new finds are:
