Picking A Wedding Day Fragrance

Weddings need a lot of planning — On the most important day of your life, you not only want to look great, you want to smell irresistible too. Picking the perfect scent is just as important as organizing the flowers and the dress.

It’s important for brides to try new scents in advance of their wedding so they can experience the chemistry of the fragrance on their skin. Usually brides-to-be are looking for a special scent for their wedding: one that they can smell in the future to remember their big day.


Choosing The Right Scent

The chosen perfume should be one that compliments the bride’s personal style, ceremony and season.Traditionally, floral scents that are light can be incredibly poetic and perfect for expressing emotions of love and romance.

For a gentle and sweet fragrance, single floral notes such as rose, carnation and violet, or fruity scents with notes of oranges and lemons, can help to lower stress levels as well as being understated and warm.

Floral or oriental blends, such as Armani Diamonds and Calvin Klein Euphoria, can have a sensual appeal, providing the loved-up bride with a flirty scent for the day.


Consider the Weather

You should also bear in mind the season that your wedding is booked. Warmer season would require floral, fruity scents since they stay light and refreshing throughout the day. If your wedding is booked for cooler season, try a slightly warmer scent with ingredients such as amber and chocolate — sensual, sultry scents.


How To Buy A New Scent

When you’re out testing scents, don’t spray too many: stick to three as maximum. Otherwise, the scents start mixing and it’s hard to decipher which one you actually like. You may

love the top notes but, after spraying the tester, walk around for an hour or so, allowing the fragrance to develop and settle, so you can check you love the base notes too.

The perfect scent should complement you, not overpower you.
