Bridal Beauty: Wedding Day Scents

They say a look can speak a thousand words, but we say…so too, can a scent (especially for a bride or groom on their wedding day). With so many options for perfume and cologne on the market today it is practically impossible to weed through and choose a favorite, so in our continual quest to help bridge the gap for brides and grooms we’ve complied a list of our top five wedding day signature scents. We hope you enjoy!

Nothing ‘smells’ like romance more than Chloé’s Eau de Parfum Spray. A combination of floral scents (including roses, peony, and lily-of-the-valley) combine with hints of amber and honey for a sweet yet truly bold floral aroma.

 

Fragrance 2*: Lovely by Sarah Jessica Parker

Intimate and bold, SJP’s first fragrance includes hints of rosewood and lavender combined with notes of orchid and cedar, creating a truly sensual musk. Perfect for the bride who is looking to a make sweet yet strong statement on her wedding day.

If you love the smell of sunscreen and the beach, this scent from Bobbi Brown will not disappoint! Perfect for a summer wedding, this fragrance includes notes of sand jasmine, sea spray, and mandarin, and we can almost guarantee that in choosing this for your wedding, every smell of sunscreen for the rest of your life will bring you back to your big day! (or at least so says our editor..it’s her favorite!)

 

Fragrance 4*: Acqua di Parma ‘Colonia’ Eau de Cologne Natural Spray (Unisex)

As a fresh and citrus cologne, this unisex fragrance from Italy is the perfect cologne for any groom as hints of lemon and orange combine with verbena and rosemary for a timeless and season-less scent. For any TOP CHEF fans, we imagine this to be the perfect scent for Fabio Viviani!


Fragrance 5*: Kiehl’s ‘Original Musk’ Eau de Toilette Spray (Unisex)

Sexy musk from one of our favorite brands…what’s not to love? Hints of white patchouli mixed with orange, rose and musk create the modern version of Kiehls Original Musk. Perfect for the non-traditional groom looking to make a traditional statement.
