Since the days of Queen Cleopatra in Egypt, smell has been an enchanting part of the beauty regime and was believed to be so powerful that it was almost outlawed in many countries! Thankfully today we can celebrate our love of beautiful scents every day with a spritz of our favourites.
Perfume has a magical power of captivating the most cherished memories and evoking a sense of nostalgia. Almost like time travel, it can transport you to another time by connecting smell, emotion and visceral imagery. Choosing what scent you wear on the day can be tricky, but it should be a personal decision that disregards trends.
Creatively speaking, your chosen fragrance can even be tied into the flower arrangements and colour palette. Light floral scents harmonise with softer colours like spring pastels or peachy pinks. Stronger scents will pair well with richer colours like deep reds or blacks for a glamorous winter wedding.
The perfume you choose to wear should make you feel spectacular. In order to get you there, we’ve created a list of our ultimate favourites as inspiration for your nuptials.
