This whole COVID-19 mess has meant mothers around the world have had to shoulder the demands of work with caretaking, home-schooling, and a multitude of other tasks. So, this Mother’s Day is truly like no other – it’s that little bit more special.
To celebrate, this year we’ve rounded up some of the most gorgeous rose-infused beauty gifts she can enjoy at home. So, go ahead, pick out something she’ll love and schedule in a fun Zoom sesh – you know she’ll appreciate it.
Dior Miss Dior Rose N’ Roses EDT
This latest addition to the Miss Dior fam is one your mum is going to love. A fresh, radiant scent, Miss Dior Rose N’ Roses boasts lively citrus notes like mandarin, combined with a delicate profusion of Grasse roses, geranium and damask rose. Elegant and feminine, Rose N’ Roses basically smells like an endless field of gorgeous flowers – which is a pretty stunning gift if you ask us. What’s more, Dior has just opened their very own Dior Beauty e-Boutique, which offers complimentary engraving for a personalised touch – so, get in on it!
Fresh Rose Deep Hydration Oil-Infused Serum
Perfect for the mum who loves a thorough skin care routine, Fresh Rose Deep Hydration Oil-Infused Serum offers a balance of hydration and nourishment for dewy, plump skin. Loaded with rosewater and rose flower oil, it’s a silky bi-phase serum (you shake the bottle to mix the water and oil phases together) that not only feels great on the skin (it basically nourishes like an oil, but feels water-light), but it leaves your skin glowing and bright.
Carrière Frères La Rose Aime La Menthe Candle
In times like this, a new home fragrance can truly mean a world of difference. Floral and fresh, Carrière Fères La Rose Aime La Menthe Candle isn’t your regular run of the mill candle. It boasts a unique blend of rose with the striking scent of fresh mint for a truly special experience.
Lancôme Hydra Zen Nuit Anti-Stress Moisturising Night Cream
It’s been a hell of a year so far, and chances are most of us are feeling stressed and burnt out. Including mum. And the fact of the matter is, this can take a massive toll on your skin, making it overstrained and dull. Give your mum the chance to give her skin a little bit of TLC with a nourishing night cream like Lancôme Hydra Zen Nuit Anti-Stress Moisturising Night Cream. It’s a luxuriously silky moisturiser that not only provides a much-needed hit of hydration, but it uses a unique NeuroCalm™ formula, composed of Rose de France and moringa extracts to reduce the effects of environmental and emotional stress.
Biossance Squalane+ Rose Vegan Lip Balm
Biossance’s silky gel-textured balm is infused with nourishing squalane and scented with natural rose. With winter right around the corner, we think Biossance Squalane+ Rose Vegan Lip Balm is the cutest (and most thoughtful) little gift getting around.
The Body Shop Petal-Soft British Rose Pampering Essentials
When you can’t bring mum to a salon, why not bring the salon to Mum! The Body Shop has us sorted. They’ve just dropped an amazing British Rose Collection, featuring a whole heap of pamper-worthy goodies any mum will love. Our fave is the Petal-Soft British Rose Pampering Essentials, because it includes everything mum needs to spoil herself at home. The set features a shower gel, soap, body yoghurt, hand cream and body buffer – all infused with the refreshingly floral scent of roses. Winner, winner.
Giorgio Armani Privé Rose Milano EDT
Everyone loves a new signature fragrance, so you can’t go wrong with gifting mum a new spritz – and this rose-scented newbie is a serious winner. Transport mum to the streets of Milan with Giorgio Armani Privé Rose Milano EDT. It features citrusy and juicy notes of primofiore lemon, contrasted with majestic damascene rose. Just watch as it becomes her new go-to.
Garnier Micellar Rose Water
Great for dry and sensitive skin (read: all of us come winter), Garnier Micellar Rose Water is enriched with the goodness of rose water to help remove makeup residue and impurities, while toning skin, for a clean, radiant and dewy complexion. The perfect addition to a little DIY skin care pack for mum.
Diptyque Eau Rose EDT
This beautiful perfume from French boutique fragrance house Diptyque is literally an ode to roses. Diptyque Eau Rose EDT blends both damascene and centifolia roses and celebrates their entirety - from bud to stem to green leaves. The delicate floral scent is teamed with fruity notes like lychee for a truly iconic fragrance.

Pop in a nourishing hair mask, a nice brush and a new hair turban and you have yourself a thoughtful M-Day gift. Go you!
Prada Les Infusions Rose EDP
Prada’s Les Infusions Rose EDP takes inspiration from an ancient variety of garden roses, featuring a gorgeous blend of rose bulgare, turque and pétale. Infused with neroli, mandarin and galbanum, this scent is spicy, vibrant and fresh. On top of that, it’s all housed in a stunning, vintage-inspired glass bottle. We love.
Salt by Hendrix Soak Infusion Rose + Heather Flower
Nothing is more relaxing than a soak in a warm bath. Except perhaps a warm bath full of soothing salts. And we’ve got just the ticket. Help mum to relax and unwind with Salt by Hendrix Soak Infusion Rose + Heather Flower. It mixes the mineral powers of magnesium flakes with the botanical beauty rose of heather flower. It smells like absolute heaven. Just what mum deserves.
Aesop Rōzu EDP
Not only will this brown glass bottle look totally chic on mum’s dresser, but Aesop Rōzu EDP smells amazing, too. Formulated in homage to the Japanese garden rose, the scent is unmistakably floral, yet teamed with woody and spicy notes for a truly unforgettable aroma.
Grown Alchemist Intensive Hand Cream Persian Rose & Argan Extract
If there’s one thing we’re experiencing in this whole coronavirus outbreak, it’s probably super dry hands thanks to the extra use of alcohol-based hand sanitisers and all this extra hand washing. Give mum the gift of smooth, soft hands with this intensively hydrating hand cream from Grown Alchemist. Infused with Persian rose and argan extract, Grown Alchemist Intensive Hand Cream Persian Rose & Argan Extract will ensure her hands receive optimum moisture and care.
Sensori+ Toowoomba Carnival 4350 Candle
Perfectly capturing the delicate scent of roses in bloom, Sensori+ Toowoomba Carnival 4350 Candle also heroes notes of lavender and sweet orange, for a beautifully light and delicate scent. The soy candle uses 100 per cent plant-based essential oil fragrances, and is designed to eliminate malodours, leaving the home smelling clean and fresh.
Dr Sebagh Rose de Vie Serum
Suitable for all skin types, this powerful elixir from Dr Sebagh is enriched with lipids and nutrients to restore radiance and smoothness to the skin. It’s the perfect skin care treatment for mum to indulge in while she’s stuck at home.
