These fun fragrance wipes by niche perfume brand Nomaterra are the perfect Mother’s Day present idea!

They are perfect for someone who isn’t normally big into perfume as they offer a more practical fragrance application which is much appreciated by those who don’t normally fuss about with makeup & perfume. They are also good because they offer three different scents so she can try different fragrances.
The scents are Miami Orange Blossom, a fun, tropical, & flirty floral with notes of dainty Orange Blossom, beachy Coconut, perky Pink Pepper, and tropical Ylang-ylang.
