The Scents of your Wedding Day
On the most important day of your life, you not only want to look great, you want to smell irresistible too.
Wedding-worthy fragrances are fashioned from soft sophisticated flowers and warm spices, to the essence of a scrumptious vanilla flavoured dessert. A bride’s wedding day fragrance is certainly part of the small detail, but an utmost important additive which cannot be overlooked.
Even Oscar de la Renta agrees—”Every woman dreams of that day,” the designer says. “You have to go the extra mile and fulfill that dream to make something that a woman will fall in love with.” .
Our sense of smell triggers our memories, and the scent you wear for your wedding will always remind you of your special day. Just a whiff can transport you back to the event long after it has ended. Deciding on the perfect fragrance, can be challenging.
Tip: We suggest selecting a new perfume just for your wedding day. Tuck it away after the wedding and wait to wear it again on your first anniversary. This is really a fun way to evoke all the memories from the day you walk down the aisle.
Here are a few guidelines:
Think season: Are you a summer bride or a winter bride? Citrus and soft floral scents work best for warmer months, while warmer, oriental, woody scents are preferred in winter.
Wear it right: For lasting power, perfume should be applied to pulse points, the inner wrists, in your cleavage and behind your knees Here are some scents that will leave you feeling feminine, fresh and beautiful from the start of the ceremony until the end of the reception on your big day.
