Being a mother is hard work. It's one thing organising your own life – it's another thing entirely to fend for a family (especially when that family includes babies, toddlers and teens). With Mother's Day just a few weeks away (Sunday, March 31), we want to honour all Irish mammies for the work they do, with something very special.
Boots is offering up to 60% off selected luxury perfumes until the end of the month*. From Lancôme to Emporio Armani, there are purse-friendly fragrances to suit all tastes. Whether your mum prefers floral or fruity tones – or something more sensual – find something she'll love in Boots stores or at Boots.ie.
Something for every type of mother
This year, more than ever, we want to acknowledge mothers in all forms. Whether she's your 'mum', 'mam' or 'mom'; whether she's your mother-in-law or grandmother, we think she deserves to be spoiled.

when you're a mother
And let's not forget self-love, either. If you're a mother, remember to treat yourself too. Here are five of our favourite perfumes on offer in Boots now:
Lancôme Vie Est Belle EDP 100ml
La Vie est Belle is Lancôme’s best selling feminine fragrance for a reason. It’s inspired by natural and simple beauty; by finding joy and pleasure in the small things. Iris is the key ingredient of this floral Eau de Parfum, and this is complemented by orange blossoms and jasmine. Not only that, this scent truly captures the luminosity of Magnolia Essence. It’s one of our firm favourites at IMAGE HQ.
Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium EDP 90ml
For those who love more sultry scents, Black Opium by Yves Saint Laurent is a must. With notes of black coffee, white florals and vanilla, it’s a luxurious fragrance for glamorous nights on the town.
Emporio Armani Diamonds She EDP Spray 50ml
Not only is this bottle sparkly and rich, but the perfume inside is equally brilliant. Inspired by both past and present – traditional and modern – Diamonds by Emporio Armani is designed to make women feel confident and strong. The rose, a symbol of femininity, is made succulent through the addition of litchi and raspberry. Plus, with sexy base notes of amber and vanilla, it’s irresistible.
DKNY Be Delicious Fresh Blossom EDP 100ml
DKNY Be Delicious Fresh Blossom is a light-hearted and intensely feminine fragrance, a mix of luscious fruit and delectable flowers. It opens with a blend of sparkling grapefruit, cassis and sun-kissed apricot. Then, its heart is rose and violet, while its base notes are orris root and musk.
Beyoncé Heat Rush EDT 100ml
If you’re shopping for a woman who loves fruity and floral scents, Heat Rush by Beyonce is perfect. Surrounded by a luminous fragrant aura, the woman who wears it feels instantly effervescent and alive. Its top notes are of passionfruit, blood orange and Brazilian cherry; heart notes of mango blossom and yellow tiger orchid; and base notes of honey amber and musk.
