Ways to Celebrate Your Mom this Mother's Day

Posted on April 30, 2015 by Tijon Fragrance Lab

As our class schedule fills up for Mother's Day weekend (May 9-10) and as online orders come in, we are excited to share our unique gift items & ideas to celebrate the occasion! 

Just in our boutique are

Macaron Trinket Boxes

These are hot items! Whether it be your small jewelry pieces, ibuprofen tablets or hairpins (we're sure you can come up ways to make good use of it), these sweet macaron trinket boxes come in assorted pastel colors and will keep your little things contained. 

Vintage-Inspired Crystal Perfume Bottle Pendant Necklaces

The top of the crystal pendant unscrews and a small amount of perfume or essential oil can be poured in. Each gold-plated copper chain necklace comes with a petite gold organza gift pouch, complete with instructions & a funnel for filling. They are available in 4 stunning colors: black, champagne, grey & turquoise. 

Key Keypers

Never lose your keys again! Whimsical and super practical - these are locally made in Valley Center. They are fun accents to handbags and ensure that the keys stay put instead of getting lost in the void. 

Read on for our top recommendations for celebrating the moms in your life in La Jolla, CA (for those that aren't lucky enough to be in St. Martin, FWI for Mother's Day!).

1. A Tijon gift card for a fragrance creation experience with your mom.

2. A bottle of custom fragrance that your mother will enjoy (which can also be made into a custom-scented body lotion or body créme). Don't have time for a full class session? Be sure to stop by our lab for a 20-minute Fragrance in a Flash. Our fragrance specialists will be able to create two recipes based on whatever you have in mind and bottle the one you like best for you to give to your mom! We also have an array of beautiful perfume bottles to make the fragrance even more spectacular.

3. Brunch, Lunch or Dinner at any of our favorite La Jolla Village restaurants, namely The Med & Café la Rue at the dreamy La Valencia Hotel (just a stone's throw away from our boutique!), NINE-TEN Restaurant at the gorgeous Grande Colonial Hotel, RoppongiHerringbone, Catania, George's at the CoveWhisknladle, PuestoCoffee Cup, Sugar & Scribe, Mary's English KitchenPiazza 1909, El Pescador Fish Market, just to name a few! ... 

4. Gorgeous flowers from our favorite florist, Bloomers of La Jolla.

5. Walk along La Jolla Cove, exploring the tidal pools during low tide or just observe the fun seals and other marine wildlife at the Children's Pool. Sunset is especially incredible here!

6. Afterwards, indulge in a piccolo cup of incredibly decadent gelato from Bobboi Natural Gelato, right on Girard Avenue & Prospect Street. Bobboi sources their ingredients from local farms so their flavors rotate daily. Have your gelato affogato (which means 'drowned' in a shot of espresso). Simply amazing!

Spoil Mom this Mother’s Day

Posted on May 03, 2013 by Rachel Sanches

How do you say “thanks” to the woman in your life that has given so very much to you over the years? Not an easy feat – we know. Luckily for you, there are also unique and personalized gifts and options to ensure that the mom in your life has a Mother’s Day she won’t forget. 


Here are some unique ideas to clue you in on which route to take on the gift-giving front:

For the woman who appreciates smelling her best:Tijon, a St. Martin and San Diego perfume boutique, is providing a number of beautiful gift options to make your mom feel pampered.  For a one-of-a-kind gift, Tijon suggests adding a fun element to a bouquet of your mom’s favorite flowers with a sample of a new fragrance.

If you are feeling extra crafty and are in the area of St. Martin or San Diego, personalize your Mother’s Day gift even more! Stop by Tijon Parfumerie to create the scent that compliments your mom best, with its Mix & Match workshops.  Or book an experience with mom so she can create her very own custom fragrance. You can pair Tijon perfumes with your own compilation of flowers or even a hand-made card. 


For the wine-loving woman: Create a custom blend that’s as unique as her, all at the touch of your fingers. OC Custom Wine lets you choose from four California wines for your custom mix. Feeling less adventurous? Personal Wine lets you personalize the label once you select your favorite from hundreds of award-winning wines from around the world.


For the artsy, eclectic woman: Snap a shot of your profile and order her a custom cameo necklace on Etsy. Turn your silhouette into a simple yet stylish work of art that will hang around her neck for years to come.


For the keepsake-kind: Nothing holds dearer to the heart than a photograph of a special moment you wish could last forever. Grab your camera, your favorite outfits and your best grins to the shores for a family photo shoot. Check out some local photographers on Yelp, or some cool poses on Pinterest. You’re sure to snag a few keepers!

Don’t wait too long! Mother’s Day is just around the corner.  To get some more aromatic inspiration, visit Tijon online (
