Oscar De La Renta & Elemis – Mother’s Day Gift Ideas


Disclosure review
Mother’s Day is almost here! If you are struggling to find the perfect gift for the mom in your life, I have a super idea for you!

I have always loved Oscar de la Renta – it was my signature fragrance years ago. Oh the memories! Needless to say, I was really excited when I received a bottle of Oscar de la Renta FLOR to try out. This fragrance sounded really appealing to me, as it is described as “a modern creation of a fresh, floral bouquet that carries the sophistication of Oscar signature fragrance with a touch of elegance and surprise, updated just for her”. Well I love light, fresh and floral scents, and thought this would fit the bill perfectly.

I was not disappointed. In fact, I was elated when I spritzed this on my neck and wrist. I believe the first expression out of my mouth was, “Ahhhhh”. It is a very feminine sent, which I love. I am not into heavy, overbearing perfumes (blech). I like a clean, crisp and “girly” fragrance.

It’s funny, I was sitting outside after spritzing myself (a few hours later), and I kept smelling this really nice scent. I thought maybe some flowers in my yard. I kept sniffing and sniffing and finally reminded myself that it was ME that smelled so good!

The packaging for Oscar de la Renta FLOR is absolutely gorgeous! To me, that is part of the fun and appeal of the gift – how it is packaged. Mom will certainly swoon with this box and bottle.

Oscar de la Renta has another scent that would be fun to try (and I imagine would also make a great Mother’s Day gift – Oscar de la Renta Extraordinary. Only the coolest of cool moms should receive this. I definitely fit into this category (my kids may or may not agree). It is a sparkling floral scent that is modern, hip, and well…cool.


Want to pamper mom? How about Elemis British Botanical Shower Cream! It is a luxurious, rich shower cream that will have mom feeling like she is at the spa every time she uses it. All moms deserve a spa day, every day, right?

    I love their products ,,dont usually have them though,,I put my grandkids and kids first and havent ever gotten any for myself but I do love the fragrance

  2. These products sound amazing. Especially the Elemis British Botanical Shower Cream. I would love this!

  3. I’m a big fan of the original Oscar de la Renta, too! Flor sounds perfect for me. I love soft, feminine floral scents, especially for the spring and summer. I need to check this out in Nordstrom or Macys to see what it smells like. Plus, I love the look of the bottle!

  4. Alison Tolar on

    I haven’t smelled any of these yet, but I really like floral scents. I would love to try out Flor. I’m also curious about the Extraordinary.

  5. They are good ideas, but it is really hard to buy perfume for people, especially online. You never really know, even if it describes the scent if it will really truly smell like that or that it will smell the same to the person you are getting it for as it does for you.

  6. Natalie Brown on

    This perfume sounds absolutely heavenly! Floral scents are my favorite. The bottle is so pretty too. Thanks for the fun information. 🙂

  7. Susan Jordan on

    This sounds like a winner to me! I too don’t like the over- bearing, sweet chemically smell of a lot of perfumes! I like the subtle clean, ‘crisp’ like you said, Perfumes! I like the perfumes to smell like a mix of several early blooming spring flowers! 🙂

  8. Well, looks like there are a variety of products. I think perfume either smells good or really bad– for me there is no inbetween.

  9. I’m most excited about the Pro-Collagen Marine Cream Silver Edition because I have aging skin and I am constantly looking for anything to help combat that!

  10. I’m most excited to try the British Botanical Shower Cream! It sounds wonderful, just the type of thing I really love. Thanks for the chance to win! : )

  11. Thank you for the post… I would love to try and new fragrance 🙂 can’t wait to go to the store to smell this.

  12. All the products look absolutely amazing, am most excited to try the British Botanical Shower Cream x

  13. Laurie Nykaza on

  14. jill rivera on

    Jasmine and Rose Hand and Nail Cream because two of my favorite scents and always trying to keep my hands from drying out.

  15. Brandi Goolsby on

    I don’t think I’ve ever even sniffed Oscar de la Renta. The light floral scent makes it sound very appealing to me. I don’t really like “heavy” perfumes. I think I would like to try the shower cream!

  16. Ooooh, my best friend wears Oscar de la Renta and it smells DIVINE! The shower scream sounds amazing!

  17. I am most excited to try the Jasmine and Rose Hand and Nail cream. It sounds like it would be perfect for my dry hands.

  18. I recently purchased this perfume for my wife, It has a great light scent. She had never worn it before and now wears it all the time.

  19. Shakeia Rieux on

    Oscar de la Renta Is both me and my moms favorite,and i can’t wait to try the Extraordinary fragrance

  20. Jamie Brigham on

    I’d love to try the Elemis Anti-Aging Skincare & Spa Collection or the Elemis Spa At Home Skin Nourishing Milk Bath

  21. Mary Songer on

    All three sound great but the one that I most want to try is the Elemis British Botanical Shower Cream. It sounds luxurious and decadent and I just got a new bathroom put in with my own shower (my husband hated when I used things that made the tub slippery) and I can use anything I want now. I would love to try this one!

  22. I would love to try the Pro-Collagen Marine Cream Silver Edition in hopes it would help with my fine lines.

  23. Lori Morgan on

    I would definitely like to try the Pro-Collagen Marine Cream Silver Edition to help my skin. Thanks.
