Choose a Mother's Day Fragrance at Lore Perfumery

Jess from Lore Perfumery gives her tips on finding the perfect fragrance for Mum.

What do you think of when you smell a rose or any other flower? Are you transported back to childhood, a first date or a special time with a friend? Your sense of smell is remarkable, not only triggering emotions, such as excitement and joy, but also memories. 

In recent years, neuroscientists have discovered that scents bypass one of the brain’s control centres, the thalamus, and go straight to the olfactory bulb, which accounts for the speed of your reaction. In fact, the human nose can identify more than 10,000 different smells and people can react differently to different smells. It’s why a bespoke perfume made from high quality ingredients makes such a beautiful gift. 

When choosing a fragrance for someone else there's a few things to consider. Firstly, what fragrance do you associate with them? Is it the smell of fresh flowers, warm and sweet, or something zesty like citrus fruits? Secondly, how strong is the perfume they usually wear? Can you smell their scent lingering or is their perfume gentler and lighter? Finally, how do you want them to feel when they wear this perfume?

Based on these factors, the experts at Lore Perfumery can work out which perfume will make the perfect gift. Even though you can’t visit the store, you can browse the different categories on the Lore Perfumery website for guidance. For example, if you're looking for something lighter in concentration, consider Eau de Toilette strength. If you're considering something sweet and fun, look at the Gourmand category. Or, if you're after a floral, then Lore has a wonderful section that covers rose, jasmine, magnolia, lily of the valley and more. 

Another tip is to consider what perfume your loved one has worn previously. An internet search may give you some idea. If the scent they've worn for years has a strong presence of roses, then search floral perfumes. This can be a great guide.

When you've chosen the scent that seems right, tick the relevant box to receive The Lore Promise. This means you'll get a sample vial to try first and make sure you or that special person receiving the perfume loves it before opening the bottle. If you’re not satisfied, Lore Perfumery will exchange the perfume to make sure you get a product you absolutely love.

Now is the perfect time to give a gift that transports someone to happy memories of childhood, luxurious holidays and special occasions. Scent also evokes memories of people, so what better gift to give your mum or someone special than a fragrance which reminds them of you.
