This year’s Mother’s Day celebration will certainly be different, but nonetheless, more heartfelt and memorable than ever. The best perfumes always make for impressive gifts because one, scent has a way of transporting us to happy memories with the ones we love most and two, they’re just nice to look at. Unless you’ve already plotted a gift set or gift card, fragrance is definitely a sure bet.

Right now, the ones I’m gravitating toward are scents that evoke everything there is to love about this time of year—fresh cut flowers, delicious fruit and the inexplicable ambiance of a clean house, to name a few. Even if you don’t gift one of these perfumes to a mom or mother figure, maybe this is a sign you should treat yourself, just because. Keep scrolling and prepare to be mesmerized by some of the best perfumes of 2020 so far.
