More often than not, purchasing a gift can be so tempting rather than personalizing one due to the tempting appeal of convenience.
However, personalizing a gift could mean something special to your mother, it could also help to satisfy her love for fragrance and concurrently showing your sincerity to her through this gift!
Include Her Personality
Perfume creation can include the individual’s personality as well, making the gift more memorable and more meaningful as compared to the other gifts.
Furthermore, everyone has their own unique set of personality traits and likewise, every loving mother. Hence, perfume formulation can be varied, having thousands of different unique creations, each unique and different.
In this perfume workshop, the provided personality quiz will guide you to fit the perfume based on your mother’s personality, giving the creation a personal touch to the gift – unique and unlike the other gifts.
Factor in Her Lifestyle
Lifestyle of mothers shows a lot in how they would prefer their perfumes as well. A mom who likes to lead the high life where she often visits fancy restaurants could prefer a perfume with elegance and sophistication as compared to a mom who leads an active and sporty lifestyle.
On the other hand, a mom who stays at home and take care of the house could like a cleaner, milder and simple scent as compared to other moms. Therefore, looking at your mother’s lifestyle could give you an insight on what fragrance your mother would prefer.
Win with Her Preference
This is also a very important factor in perfume selection and creation. If we are purchasing or personalizing a perfume for someone else, we have to first recognize and know what the other’s likes and dislikes are in scents.
Whenever, in doubt stick to safer options. Go for perfume strength that has mild to moderate fragrance intensity. A safe choice for perfume profiles be musk, vanilla, florals or fragrances with tones of aqua.
