Or add sex appeal & classic touch to a white flower wedding with a ‘wow’ designer treat such as the classic Chanel Allure. You are sure to feel like a princess.

Scents Designed With Weddings In Mind

Some scents designed with weddings in mind include L’Occitane Collection de Grasse Néroli & Orchidée which is a blissful blend of orange blossom and white orchid. Symbols of love and union and is heart-bustingly beautiful.

Vera Wang as one of the worlds finest bridal gown designers is well appointed to create bridal fragrances . Her original “Vera Wang” harmony of mandarin blossom and cleaver brings notes of Bulgarian rose and gardenia and is still a favourite bridal perfume.

To Buy A New Or Not For Your Wedding Day 

If you feel totally comfortable with your current perfume and you receive frequent compliments on how it smells so wonderful and really suits you then it is best to wear this on your special day.

If you would like to choose a new perfume choose one that suits your style and personality and one that you will wear afterwards and forever associate with your special day. Avoid the latest trend.

Co ordinate Your Perfume With A Ceremony Scent 

Nothing will capture the fragrance you wear down the aisle as having a co ordinating scent wafting through the venue. Jo Malone offer a Bridal Consultation where you can discover and explore different ways to scent your wedding day. You can choose scents for different parts of the day, or different areas in the venue.

Carry Your Perfume Through From You To Your Reception

If you are wearing a Jo Malone perfume combine with scents from Jo Malone diffusers and candles in the reception. Favourite bridal Jo Malone perfumes include Peony & Blush Suede so whether you are having peonies or would love to have them but they are out of season you can still have the scent.Tips for Choosing your Perfect Wedding Day Perfume

Make Your Fragrance Last The Whole Wedding Day

  • Layer the fragrance. Layering begins during your shower where the pores will open to allow the moisture and scents to seep in. Your glowing soft skin enables your body lotion to penetrate deeper into your skin to give a longer lasting scent .
  • Moisturize your skin & for even better longevity put on the lotion that pairs with your perfume.
  • Apply to pulse points. Heat activates perfume.Pulse points are located between the breasts, behind the knees, in the bend of your elbow, on the throat and the temples. Avoid applying fragrances behind the ears.
  • Don’t rub after applying the perfume to the sensory points.
  • Store it correctly – preferably still in the box/out of sunlight.
