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 EauPINION – A beautiful honeyed floral – tart and sweet. I’m such a sucker for honeyed florals.
