New perfume for Mother’s Day?

Are you wondering why I posed the title “New perfume for Mother’s Day” as a question? Well, it all started with a magazine ad and my bad (good?) decision to have my husband smell it.

“Mmm, that smells really nice!” I had no idea that such a simple statement would make Mother’s Day more difficult. My hubbs smelled the ad in the magazine I was leafing through and fell in love. Two days later, as I was getting ready to leave for the grocery store when he told me to make sure to stop at Ulta on my way home and buy it! He said he couldn’t get that scent out of his head. If that’s not a ringing endorsement, I don’t know what is!

How could I refuse? Hubbs is actually SENDING me to Ulta to buy something? I mean come on! Seriously… take a moment and think about the last time your significant other SENT you to Ulta? Other than the time my hubbs wanted some sunscreen that wasn’t oily, I can’t remember him ever sending me there. Not even once! So I stopped and bought the perfume and there you have it. But, I am a mom and I just got a new perfume. That’s weird right? I mean, Mother’s Day is coming up in a little over a week and perfume is a perfect gift! So now what?

I’ll have to get back to you to see if my hubbs and the teenager come up with any good ideas for for Mother’s day now that the tried and true option of perfume is already covered. But, if you haven’t picked out a gift for your mom, perfume might be the answer! There are always great sales and incentives on perfume this time of year.

At Ulta you can get a free bag with purchase (I got the cornflower blue one!). Sephora is offering extra points on fragrance purchases. Pretty much every store that sells perfume has some sort of incentive right now. Really, what mom doesn’t love a new bottle of perfume? Well, except for that mom with really bad allergies. I know her personally… definitely don’t buy her perfume.

Oh! And in case you’re wondering, my new perfume is My Burberry Black. It’s not a summer smell in my opinion, but it is beautiful. It has notes of sun-drenched jasmine flower and peach nectar with a touch of rose that are deliciously intoxicating. I know my hubbs is loving it!

Are you going to be gifting (or wishing for) new perfume for Mother’s Day? I’d love to know!
