This fresh fruity fragrance is inspired by the Mother’s Day and its origins. Today, the festival of Mother’s day is celebrated across the world to honour our mothers, to thank them for their efforts in giving us life, raising us and being our constant support and well-wisher.
The first notion of Mother's Day goes back to the time of Greek and Romans. However, the holiday as it is seen today is a recent phenomenon of little more than a hundred years old. The day came into existence thanks to Anna Jarvis. She is recognised as the Founder of Mothers Day in US; an apt title for the lady who worked hard to bestow honour on all mothers. She got the inspiration of celebrating Mothers Day from her own mother Mrs Anna Marie Reeves Jarvis in her childhood. An activist and social worker, Mrs Jarvis used to express her desire that someday someone must honour all mothers, living and dead, and pay tribute to the contributions they made. A loving daughter like Anna never forgot her mother’s word and when her mother died in 1905, she resolved to fulfill her mother’s desire. After two years of perseverance, the modern American holiday of Mother's Day was first celebrated in 1907, when Ana Jarvis held a memorial for her mother at St Andrew's Methodist Church in Grafton, West Virginia; state where this holiday it was first recognised.
Mémorire d’Anna is an intriguing blend of very fresh, fruity and floral elements. The base notes recall a sweet dream of fruits. Melon and pineapple mixed with green apples, the main fruit in West Virginia, in all of its exuberance. Flowers are the most traditional gift to offer for Mother’s Day, so they couldn’t be missing in this juice. Specially Carnations, Anna’s mother favourite flower, which have come to represent Mother's Day since Anna Jarvis delivered 500 of them at the first celebration in 1907. The down dry is particularly smooth and warm like a summer evening.
The eternal homage to all beloved mothers.
