If you still haven’t got Mother’s Day sorted and haven’t time to nip out to the shops, there’s a great offer available online at Floris.
You can get a Seringa 100ml eau de toilette, normal price £50, and matching 200g Silken Dusting Powder with powder puff, usually priced at £26, in a chiffon-ribboned Floris gift box for £60, saving £16.
Seringa has cool, radiant leafy green notes with a citrus twist leading to a fresh, floral heart of jasmine, rose and ylang ylang, warmed by soft spicy carnation in a harmony that is reminiscent of the scent of seringa flowers, also known as mock orange blossom.
The fragrance is underscored by a woody, mossy base of patchouli and oakmoss with a touch of frankincense, sweetened by tonka bean, musk and vanilla. Its companion is a finely milled body powder with added natural silk to leave skin smooth, fragrant and with a slight sheen.
