Here's A $45 Gift That'll Take Mom On A Trip (Sorta)

TYO DXB CDG NYC.167-2
Can't afford to send Mom on a well-deserved trip for Mother's Day? We'll take you there. The Scent of Departure captures the essence of 20 of the world's most amazing vacations each into a bottle. Since scent is the strongest sense attached to memory, these are sure to take her back to the cobblestoned streets of Paris, Miami's sandy beaches, or any other number of magical locales...without the airfare or jet lag.
At a very-wallet-friendly, and mom-approved $45, this gift is begging to be paired with a handmade postcard from her favorite city (wish you were here!) to go along with her escape in a spritz. (Hint: Check out their web site for design inspiration.)
But, even if you're not a gift procrastinator, and have already picked out your gift, this is definitely worth bookmarking for anyone on your to-shop-for list. The fragrances "destinations" are unisex and trot the globe from Abu Dhabi to Keflavik to Vienna. And for the IRL jet-setters, the bottles are also TSA-friendly, clocking in at just 1.7 fluid ounces each. They've thought of everything, and we're pretty sure that would make Mom proud!
