The Fragrance Nadia Fairfax Can’t Wait To Give Her Mum This Mother’s Day

“Shaz is bold and fearless, so this fragrance is the perfect gift to make her feel special this Mother’s Day.”

Finding a Mother’s Day gift that encapsulates everything our mums are can be a serious challenge. Gone are the days of flowers and chocolates, it’s time to up the ante and make sure the important women in our lives feel celebrated and special. For many of us, our mums–or mother figures–effortlessly walk the line between being strong, bold and fearless and also being nurturing and warm.

So, when the second Sunday in May rolls around each year, we want to make sure that our gift giving is on point–and who better to consult on the issue than fashion influencer and it-girl, Nadia Fairfax?

“My favourite thing about my relationship with my mum Sharon [Fairfax] is that there isn’t any hiding or pretending,” Fairfax reflects. “There’s so much mutual respect and I’ve always felt like she was more of a best friend than a mum. We bicker like sisters but both know how much the other means to us.”

It’s this closeness between mother and daughter that fashion and fragrance brand Carolina Herrera loves so much. A brand built on strong mother-daughter relationships (Carolina’s own daughter, Carolina Herrera de Baez, sits as the brand’s Creative Director of Fragrances and is the woman behind the Good Girl franchise), Carolina Herrera prides itself on capturing the complex and beautiful essence of motherhood. Case in point: the Carolina Herrera Very Good Girl Glam Eau De Parfum. AKA the perfect Mother’s Day gift.

“I love the Carolina Herrera Very Good Girl Glam fragrance because it’s a scent that spans generations,” says Fairfax. “Ever since I was little I wanted to wear my mum’s fragrance and now I can. It keeps us feeling connected even if we don’t see each other for a while.”

With top notes of black cherry and bitter almond rounded out by heart notes of rose and lily and grounded in base notes of vanilla bourbon and vetiver, the Very Good Girl Glam scent is dazzling, striking and complex–just like the important women in our lives. “There is just something so nostalgic and warm about the fact that I can wear it, my mum can wear it and my grandmother can wear it,” Fairfax adds.

Still housed in the iconic Good Girl stiletto bottle (only this time it’s elevated with pink sparkle), the Very Good Girl Glam iteration is the ultimate celebration of modern femininity. A tribute to mother’s who aren’t afraid to assert themselves with their scent and personality, Fairfax says the fragrance encapsulates her mum to a tee. “Shaz is bold and fearless. I always remember her at my gymnastics competitions when I was a kid. She was always the loudest and deepest voice in the crowd and I could always hear ‘Go Nadia!’ no matter where I was. She even became known for it at Nationals!” It’s this unapologetic confidence that Fairfax says shaped her into the woman she is today and is something she has grown to admire about her mum as she’s gotten older. 

“Mother’s Day is the perfect excuse to spoil your mum with something you know she’ll have for years to come and the Carolina Herrera Very Good Girl Glam Eau De Parfum is just that,” says Fairfax. 

“I feel so lucky to have had a role model like Shaz. She is the embodiment of strength and is always so full of life,” she adds.
