Mum's the word

Text: Buro. Singapore

To celebrate you, and your Mum dearest, we’ve put together a unique box of treats for the both of you to enjoy on this special occasion

If there's a universal truth about mothers, it's that they like being pampered. Whether it's breakfast in bed, or a thoughtful handwritten note, small gestures of love are guaranteed to reach right into the depths of their being. Who knows, it might even benefit you in the long run. 

This year, to commemorate this group of beautiful, strong women, we're giving out a box of exclusive treats to some of our Friends of Buro, collaborators, and their mothers. Whether it's new clothes or a selection of beauty luxuries, we've handpicked each and every product to cater to every want and desire. Ready? It's time to unbox. 

Annick Goutal Rose Pompon Eau de Parfum

The new Eau de Parfum version of this scent captures a more sensual and voluptuous facet of the rose, while still maintaining its freshness. The lighter berry notes in the original become denser in this version, as this grown-up rendition leaves a pleasingly, powdery trail.
