Do you remember when Mother’s Day meant saving your pennies to buy Mom fragrance from the drugstore because it was all you could afford? Today, I’m assuming you have more than a few pennies to spend. But that doesn’t mean that you have to go into debt to give a great fragrance to gift that special woman. The fragrances I’ve chosen are affordable, but they also offer some spectacular bottles to display. Feast your eyes on the sea blue flacon of GUESS Seductive Blue. Be bowled over by the bowler hat on the Twilly Eau Ginger by Hermes. Go for the glorious girly glitter of Viva La Juicy Rose by Juicy Couture. Amo in Italian means “I Love” you will love the fragrance and the bottle of Amo Ferragamo. These fragrances are not just for display, they are to wear, every day!

About The Notes:
Although Harry Fremont created the first Juicy Couture fragrance, Viva La Juicy Rose was created by another well-respected perfumer, Honorine Blanc,
This is a Floral Fruity fragrance for women with a nod not to the rose (flower) but to the rose (wine). Viva La Juicy Rose was launched in 2015. The top notes are Pear, Mandarin Orange, and Jasmine; the middle notes are Rose, Peony, and Jasmine Sambac; the base notes are Ambroxan, Orris, and Benzoin. heart created of centifolia rose absolute, sambac jasmine, and white peony, while powdery shades of orris absolute, benzoin, and ambroxan linger in drydown.
It feels fresh and fruity and floral, and pinkly perfect with rose. To me, it smells like s Spring bouquet. You can make your own judgments. But the point is, it is lighthearted and pretty. Every woman has a bit of glittery princess in them. Once you smell this 2015 fragrance you will fall in love with rose all-day
Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Rose has a really beautiful bottle, glitzy and girly. The bottles featured pink and gold glitter (pink at the top, gold at the bottom) with a big Juicy Couture logo and the big clear acrylic top featured a collar of a pink tulle bow upon which dangles a rose gold safety pin holding a bottle of wine with pink beads inside it. It’s a real showstopper!
3.04 fl. oz. bottle on Fragrancenet.com was $45.35 (other sizes are available)
Bowled Over by Twilly D’Hermes
Twilly d’Hermès Eau Ginger by Hermès is a Floral Woody Musk fragrance for women. Twilly d’Hermès Eau Ginger was launched in 2021. The nose behind this fragrance is Christine Nagel.
About the Notes:
The top note is Peony; the middle notes are Ginger and Candied Ginger; the base note is Cedar. If you’re not sure what that would smell like, it’s spicy but also floral and woody. I don’t smell the peony at all, but my nose isn’t yours. The ginger is prominent, but the spice is welcoming. How you view fragrances is subjective. With just three main ingredients, Twilly is something different and I think it’s an all-year-round fragrance. It’s for the sparkly Hermes girls (is that you)? In any case, it’s unique and well done.
The first word for this is “cute!” As with other Hermes Twilly branded fragrances, this one wears a bowler hat (in white for Eau Ginger). It also has a cute and colorful Hermes-inspired ribbon bow on the collar. The cube of the bottle has some embossed concentric circles in the middle with a label white, pink, and orange. Really adorable!
On fragrancenet.com it is $44.09 for 1 fl. oz. (there are larger sizes available as well).
When it comes to beautiful bottles, Amo Ferragamo takes its place on the list! Amo in Italian means “I Love.”It’s an elegant and sophisticated fragrance.
About the Notes
Amo Ferragamo is an Amber Floral fragrance for women launched in 2018. The nose behind this fragrance is Marie Salamagne. The top notes are Campari, Black Currant, and Rosemary; the middle notes are Rhubarb, Jasmine Sambac, and Mate; the base notes are Tahitian Vanilla, Ambroxan, and Sandalwood. Some say it’s a vanilla gourmand. I can’t totally disagree although the rhubarb makes it smell a bit like a ripe orange with vanilla. Maybe an orange creamsicle but more sensual than sweet.
The top notes feature Campari, Black Currant, and Rosemary. The heart is Rhubarb and Jasmine Sambac but the base secures these with a lot of Tahitian Vanilla, Ambroxan, and Sandalwood, Until the drydown I really smelled the black currant. But eventually, the bottom notes make themselves known. The fragrance also lasts on my skin (so hopefully on yours as well) for a long time.
And then there’s this absolutely lovely bottle. The photos all show the gilding on the top as silver, but It also shines with a gilded tone and looks absolutely elegant. The topper is a big ball of gilded plastic with little divots that radiate down the top half of the bottle getting larger on the bottle itself. The shape is not quite a pear shape but beautifully curvaceous. Amo Ferragamo in black script sits subtly in the middle of the flacon with black ink.
I found it on Fragrancenet.com 3.4 oz. for an amazing $44.09. I was really shocked at the affordability of this beautiful beautiful scent. In fact, I thought it was a mistake, but it wasn’t!
I am referencing Fragrancenet.com for Twilly, Amo Ferragamo, and Viva La Juicy Couture because they sent me these fragrances and their prices are good. You can, of course, find these in other stores!
