Choose Your Wedding Perfume

Getting ready for your wedding is a long and time-consuming process. Choosing your dress, your makeup and your venue are enough. So, we are here to help you with our top five favorite perfumes for a bride.

Things to bear in mind:

* Take your time choosing your perfume, this scent will always remind you of your wedding day.
* Make sure your partner enjoys the scent since you will be standing and dancing together the whole night.
* Try to choose a fragrance that does not clash with the scent of your bouquet.

Now let’s go through the list of our favorite wedding perfumes:

1. Vera Wang Eau De Parfum
This vibrant and flirtatious scent is a blend of Gardenia, Lotus, Iris, and White Stephanotis.

2. Elie Saab L’eau Couture
“Here, Orange Blossom unveils an unexpected facet, inspired by the fleeting period when the newly-bloomed blossoms exude slightly almond notes. As its traditional honey-like aromas are subdued, Orange Blossom inhabits the fragrance like a poetic whisper. Its subtly textured floral freshness, upheld by intricate transparency, is an echo of sun-kissed femininity.”

3. Annick Goutal Rose Splendide

This feminine fragrance’s notes are Rose, Musk, Magnolia, & Pear.

4. Creed Love In White
This harmonious and feminine scent is a blend of South Spain Orange Juices, Italian Jasmine, French Riviera Narcissus, Tonkin Rice, Egyptian Iris, and Guatemala Mountain Magnolia.

5. Gucci Bamboo

Fragrances notes are Italian Bergamot, Casablanca Lily, Ylang Ylang, Comoros, and Sandalwood.

My honorable mentions are Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream and, Flowerbomb. The reason I didn’t add them in the list they are so popular that many of the guests may be wearing them. If that’s not a deal breaker for you give them a try too.


Wish you all the best.  👰
