Mother’s Day Love Notes | Flowerbomb Nectar

* AD – advertisement feature written in collaboration with Boots.

 

When you think about your Mum, does a certain scent come to mind? Scents you remember from your childhood? Certain holidays? That long car journey to the seaside?

Because I do. Scents are very significant in my memories. Some that remind me of friends that are sadly no longer with us. That distinct “Grandma” scent knowing she’s nearby. Remembering the perfumes I used doing photoshoots in my early teens. The one I wore for my first date with my fiancé. Or the first “real” perfume I was bought, replacing my overwhelming body sprays that filled my school PE bags.

These memories are no different when it comes to my Mum. There are certain scent notes that bring the memories pouring back to me. It’s amazing how perfume can do that. When I smell fresh, aquatic scents I remember the sea air, sandy toes and beach picnics, woody notes bring me back to cycle rides along the railway path to spend the day in one of our favourite parks and floral notes take me back to the house I grew up in, making daisy chains the length of our garden and trying to catch the butterflies landing on our neighbours Buddleia.

Sweet and floral notes are what remind me most of my Mum and my memories growing up. Whether that’s the rainy days stuck indoors making victoria sponge decorated with all sorts of questionable “writing icing” designs, or the “sweet factories” my Brother and I would make out of Meccano where we’d spend the day unwrapping and rewrapping chocolates whilst Mum made a comforting roast dinner. The floral notes remind me of the walks around our local Arboretum and Summer days in our “secret garden” sunbathing together and listening to the woodpeckers above.

As much as these memories won’t mean anything to you personally. I’m sure you also have those scents that bring the memories flooding back. Boots allow you to shop Women’s Perfume by “fragrance scent” so you can shop those specific scents that remind you most of your Mum. Viktor and Rolf Flowerbomb Nectar (pictured) is a perfect example of a floral but sweet fragrance, with the iconic Flowerbomb scent followed by the warming, sweet nectar.

Does your Mum have a signature scent? What scent notes remind you most of you Mum?

    I think so esp. when we were children.. I think there are something clingy and we remember things more bec. we associate factors like smell

    My mom loves perfume with a flowery tone. Before she passed, she frequently used perfume that smelled like roses. I don’t quite remember the perfume, but I know where she kept it. I will ask my sister if it is still in the usual place. I’d pour some of it on a handkerchief and keep it under my pillow to remind me of my mom.

    sounds like my Mom would have loved the Flowerbomb nectar, she used to wear these sweet and floral tones all of the time. She passed away four years ago, and I seldom use perfume, because I am allergic to most of them. But you made me think of my mom today, so thank you for that – blessings!

    I didn’t grow up with a mother but I enjoy reading about those who had a wonderful relationship with theirs. Lovely photos of the Flowerbomb Nectar bottle.

      Gosh I didn’t realise anyone didn’t like perfume! You can always treat yourself though.

    I don’t have a recollection of my mom’s perfume scent, but my kids and their friends would say that my scent was vanilla.

      I’m not too sure what mine is, I don’t think I have a signature scent myself.
