Shelley Kyle De Ma Mere EDP Perfume Review

Shelley Kyle De Ma Mere

With Mother’s Day around the corner, I thought it would be a good time to review Shelley Kyle De Ma Mère. When I first sampled the line, I immediately fell for this one. I love a spring-like honeyed floral.

De Ma Mère is a gorgeous honeyed floral. It’s a cool, dewy mimosa with lime zest. The linden in this is sweet and honeyed, reminding me of linden tea. De Ma Mère is a sweet yet tart floral. It wears rather linear but I like what I smell so this doesn’t bother me. This is exactly what I want to wear in the summer.

I do not understand why this brand doesn’t get more love within the perfume community. People that love florals from brands like Annick Goutal or Jo Malone London (or people that like “romantic” scents) should be going nuts for these. They are very well-done, affordable soliflores.

Notes listed include linden blossom, amber, acacia and beeswax.

GIve De Ma Mére a try if you like honeyed florals. Or if you like perfumes like Aftelier Honey Blossom, L’Artisan Parfumeur La Chasse aux Papillons, Provence Santé Tilleul, Annick Goutal Le Mimosa and/or Guerlain Champs-Elysées.

Projection is average and longevity is below average. It wears more like an EDT on my skin.

The EDP comes in two sizes (1 and 2 oz) with prices ranging from $37-$72 at Shelley Kyle. Other products are also available in this scent.

Victoria’s Final EauPINIONA beautiful honeyed floral – tart and sweet. I’m such a sucker for honeyed florals.

Now Smell This – It’s not a review but this perfume is mentioned in the comments as a great perfume for summer…and I agree.

  1. i’ve never heard of this brand… after checking out the website, i can’t speak for the frags themselves, but the presentation and collection of products IS very romantic and well represented! i love when you can access your favorite perfume in as many forms as possible. Bathing and environmental fragrancing (Shelley calls it “A Living Perfume”- which is just brilliant) products make a signature scent go the distance.

    the crystal powder puff is just classic.

    1. The brand is based out of Atlanta and from what I understand really popular in little boutiques across the country. I was finally able to try them all at NY Now in January. I have to say that the packaging is even better in person, the powder puffs are up there with Caron’s. Plus, it’s a family business and I met them and they were super nice and knew their stuff.

      It’s one of those lines where you can look at the packaging and get if you’ll like it or not (like Annick Goutal’s old packaging). I may wear something skanky or amber-y a lot of the time, but I have a soft spot for these sort of pretty florals. I mean, I wear all black and badass boots, I like to contrast with super frou-frou florals 🙂

  2. Heads up! Just scored 2 2 0z bottles of this for 15.00 each at Marshall’s. If you have a Marshall’s or Tjmaxx near you, check it out. It is lovely. Reminds me of John Varvatos Artisan but it lasts longer. The orange blossom is persistent and held aloft by the fuzzy linden and beeswax notes. A good choice for people who love Orange Blossom Soliflores, this one is not too sweet nor does it turn to soap.

  3. I found one at Marshall’s on clearance for $15, went back a week later and find another on clearance for $10.

  4. Please be careful of Shelley Kyle products! I live in Atlanta and her products are potentially dangerous..

    A friend of mine knows Ms. Kyle and recommended her fragrance to me and my friends. I got an awful rash when I used Tirimani, and I ended up needing to get a shot of Benadryl at the Emergency Room at Northside Hospital here in Atlanta.

    My friend also had a bad reaction to the powder, though nothing compared to what happened to me.

    An ounce of prevention…

    1. I’m sorry to hear that this happened to you and your friend. I can only imagine how scary that was.

      It may be good to contact the company to let them know. I would also be very careful sampling perfumes in the future as it sounds like you are sensitive to something.

      Once again sorry to hear this.

      1. I once purchased a body scrub from Bath and Body and had a horrible similar reaction. I never did figure out what ingredient caused this to happen but I embraced this as a personal skin thing and went on to try other products from this line without issue. I wore De Ma Mere all summer without any problems. I would strongly encourage Mary Ellen to contact Shelley Kyle directly and let her know…….

        1. I’m sorry to hear that happened to you too. I had something like that with a shower gel from a brand sold at drugstores. I never figured out what caused that reaction for me (I suspect something in the fragrance because the other ingredients were pretty run of the mill). I immediately stopped using it, took notes of the ingredients (for my personal knowledge of what to avoid) and contacted the company to let them know (who knows, maybe their manufacturer switched an ingredient or the ratio of ingredients? or other people are sensitive as well?) I figured, even though they are a large company, that they’d want to know.
