Smells create very vivid memories. So, spend time in choosing your wedding perfume, as the fragrance will linger with the memories of your wedding day, and you want it to be memorable, pleasant and perfect.
Here are some helpful hints to help you choose the right fragrance for your big day.
Tried and tested scent or brand new fragrance?
Although this is a personal choice, it would be great to mark this new beginning in your life with a new fragrance. But, if you will only feel comfortable in the perfume you’ve worn forever, or you think some things are best left unchanged, stick with your existing perfume. After all, it is all about you feeling comfortable on this day.
Things to remember when choosing a new fragrance
For those of your brides, who would like to find a brand new perfume for their big day, here are some tips to help you choose.
Consider the scent of your bouquet
If your wedding bouquet is formed of natural flowers, they will have a strong scent already. Remember that your perfume should complement this smell, or it may become overwhelming to those who come near you. If the bouquet has strong scented flowers like roses, it is better that you forego wearing perfume for the wedding, and use it only for the reception.
Light floral scents are the best
Floral scents are pleasant and light fragrances will more likely go well with the fragrances of your makeup. Rather than choose a blend of smells, go with one single tone which is warm and soothing. When choosing your wedding perfume, also consider the various other scents that will be there at your reception, like scented candles, flowers and fruits. Make sure that your choice goes well with them.
Take time to decide which one
When you go perfume shopping, do it in the afternoon, when you sense of smell works best. Try on the ones that you really liked, by spraying them at different locations, and give it time to settle in. The smell changes on your skin, so you should wait a bit before deciding if it is the one. You shouldn’t try more than three scents at a time, as it can cause sensory overload. If you were unable to find one on this trip, plan another trip on a different day to try on more scents.
