Clé de Peau Beauté Ultimate Gifting Set for Mother’s Day

This special gift set from Clé de Peau Beauté comprises four of the brand’s most iconic products, housed in its signature diamond-textured packaging. Used together, the items promise a luxurious pampering session. At the heart of the ensemble is the La Crème, an intense nighttime cream that revitalises the skin and optimises absorption for subsequent skincare steps. Meantime, The Foundation, boasting SPF and skincare benefits, ensures a smooth and supple base, while the Illuminizing Face Enhancer helps enhance the skin’s natural glow, as it sculpts and defines features. For the finishing touch, the Precious Lipstick, a blend of jewel tones and advanced skincare properties, lends the lips a truly radiant finish.

AMAFFI Power for Women

You can never go wrong with an olfactory portrait from AMAFFI; the artisanal bottles stand as stunning mini sculptures and are every bit as exquisite as the scent they hold. Case in point: the Power for Women, husked in a polished onyx enamel metallic orb and embellished with gold filigree ribbons inlaid generously with Swarovski crystals. The box is equally lavish, boasting a black piano-lacquered facade embossed with an AMAFFI logo and red English velvet lining; a gift wrapper isn’t needed. With every spritz, a similar opulence comes through: a rich voluptuous formula based on a blend of luxurious accords of amber, powerful oud, warm sandalwood notes, and enchanting musk.

Dior Prestige La Suite

An occasion to bask in Dior’s exquisite and rejuvenating spa treatments, this Mother’s Day sees a trifecta of tailored indulgences. While the High-Precision Treatment refines facial contours, encourages cell rejuvenation, and visibly firms the skin, the Micro-Abrasion Radiance Treatment offers an immediate boost of vitality. For a quick fix, the Lucibel Mask Light Therapy, which is only available as an add-on, brightens complexion in just 15 minutes.

Spa Esprit’s House Bungalow Facial

Relaxation and beauty meet at Spa Esprit through the House Bungalow Facial, which combines a facial and massage with a soothing aromatherapy session. Through the combination of ultrasonic therapy and botanical stem cells, skin gets uplifted and exfoliated whilst collagen production speeds up–culminating in a stronger skin structure, better elasticity, smaller pores, and younger-looking skin. The 80-minute indulgence also includes a soothing aromatherapy session, gentle extractions, and shoulder-to-face massages. A personalised face mask tailored to address the skin’s needs completes the sensorial skin rejuvenation experience.

Cartier Les Épures de Parfum Pur Lilas EDT

Cartier calls Les Épures de Parfum (S$385) the fragrance equivalent of its high jewellery creations. The Pur Lilas EDT takes centre stage, anchored by white lilac notes for a fresh and delicate trail. Fresher and more aqueous than lilac used in regular scents, wild lilac is also extremely rare, blooming only once a year in mid-April. Evocative of the rare flower and Cartier’s opulent jewellery, the Cartier Les Épures de Parfum Pur Lilas EDT is a lovely gift with lingering presence.
