If ever you needed further proof that this year is moving along very fast, then the fact that next Sunday (March 14th is Mother’s Day) should be proof enough. A really special day, both for moms, mum’s and mom figures everywhere, this is the one day of the year when that special lady in your life should really be pampered and treated to something nice. Something from ARRAN Sense of Scotland could certainly fit the bill.
If you are not already familiar with the brand ARRAN Sense of Scotland. then you are in for a real treat. Based on the spectacular island of Arran, the brand has grown from a small family business to a beautiful success story with gorgeous fragrances using uniquely Scottish crops and flowers at their heart. As they are also luxuriously packaged, they make a great gift idea for Mother’s Day, one that will surely be gratefully received.
My own favourite fragrance from the ARRAN Sense of Scotland range is After the Rain. The idea behind this fragrance is gloriously evocative – imagine a flower packed garden on the Isle of Arran after a rain shower, and the scent that has been left behind and you get the idea. Rose, Lime and Sandalwood have been combined to create this fragrance, and you can choose whether you want it for yourself, or for your home.
After the Rain is a fragrance I discovered through my mom, so it makes sense to give this as a Mother’s Day gift. The packaging is clean and minimal, and I love the fact that you can use this to layer up on fragrance, with products including liquid hand soap, bath and shower gel and Eau De Parfum (so much stronger and longer lasting than an eau de toilette). If your loved one prefers a gift for the home, you could opt for this fragrance as a scented candle, room spray or a diffuser.
The range comes as individual products so you could create your own hamper, or else there are also gift packages in the range. The choice really is yours, but either way, this is a traditional, British Heritage brand that is a sign of quality, and a lovely, well thought out gift idea for someone with a love of natural, cruelty free, gift ideas.
