Why Perfumes Make The Perfect Mother’s Day Gift
Finding the perfect present for your mum can be a challenging prospect, which is why perfumes make such great Mother’s Day gifts. They offer a versatile way in which you can show your mum how much you love and appreciate her. In the article below we will showcase exactly what makes perfume a good gifting choice and why it’s a good choice for your mum in particular.
Scents Can Awaken Powerful Memories (Or Create New Ones)
The olfactory bulb, which is responsible for processing smells, is located near the areas of the brain involved in memory formation and emotional processing (the hippocampus and amygdala). When we smell something, the chemical signals are first processed by this part of the brain and are then distributed to the rest of the brain. Scents can thus awaken (or even create) powerful memories and elicit strong emotions due to the physical proximity of all the regions of the brain involved.
Buying your mum a luxury perfume as a gift can help evoke strong memories of her life, such as special occasions where she wore a particular perfume (like a wedding) or a time where she was happy that she still associates with the smell (like being a little girl on her first day of school and being comforted by the lingering scent of her mum’s perfume).
There Is A Perfume For Every Person
There are hundreds, if not thousands, of different perfumes and fragrances on the market. If you like something, chances are good that you would be able to find a fragrance that approximates it. Perfumes are thus incredibly versatile, which means it is likely that you would be able to find something your mum likes. You can try to get your mother her favourite perfume, or you can get her something that has a more personal meaning to you and which will remind her of you when she wears it.
Fragrances Can Be Used For Different Occasions
Fragrances are so versatile that they can be matched to specific times of day or special occasions, such as wearing a light fruity scent in the morning or an elegant floral scent to an evening party. This presents an opportunity to surprise your mum with two (or more) different perfumes on Mother’s Day, with each scent matching an important part of her day or routine. This is also a good way to show your mum that you put a lot of thought into her gift and didn’t just get something that was cheap and immediately available.
Perfume Lasts Longer Than Flowers And Chocolates
Chocolates (and other assorted confectionery) and flowers do not last long. Both of these gifts are popular choices for days like Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day, but they are only transient and will fade from memory quickly.
Perfumes last much longer (and can last for several years if properly stored). You can always buy a combination of all three gifts, but the fragrance is what your mum will be able to use and cherish for the longest time.
Fragrances Make Good Gifts At Any Age
Women of all ages can appreciate a good fragrance. It can make an older woman feel young again by reminding her of her youth, or it can make a younger woman feel elegant and more confident through a perfume’s association with beauty and self expression. No matter how old your mum is, at least you know there is one timeless gift she will always be able to appreciate.
