A Scent To Remember

One of the things you may want to consider in your planning is a wedding scent. Smell, being the sense that most evokes memories and feelings, truly has a great deal of influence to make a person remember special moments.  Here’s sharing some tips when choosing a new scent to wear for your big day:

  • Match your fragrance to the time of your event (whether you’re having a morning, afternoon, or evening affair) as well as to the season of the year (perfumes react to the environment and will behave differently according to the time of year).
  • When you go scent shopping, take a whiff off 3-4 scents at a time. This way you’d be able to smell the succeeding scents accurately. You can also try to smell some coffee to shake off the perfume-y scents in between testings.
  • Keep in mind that a scent has a top note, mid, and base notes. It would be a good idea to smell the perfume when it is sprayed, then a few minutes after, then half an hour or so later.
  • Consider that your bouquet may also give off some fragrance. You don’t want your flowers and perfume to compete or you might end up with a dizzy spell from heady scents.

For my wedding, I chose (quite aptly) Le Mariage by Givenchy. I still have that bottle to this day, and use it for special occasions. The first time I wore it after the wedding,  I asked the hubby if he recognized the scent and his smile just said it all :-)
