A common understanding about a wedding is it’s all in the details. From the food to the color of the flowers, it’s little things that you will remember about your big day. One small detail that can make a big difference is finding the perfect perfume (or cologne) that you wear specifically on your wedding day. This special scent will give you and your partner a trigger memory – so whenever you smell the scent, you will think of how you felt on your Big Day.
Little things, such as a specific perfume or cologne are also great for gifts for your bridal party, as well as a gift for anniversaries or special occasions. If you don’t want to go the traditional route on your five-year anniversary (wood), you can always buy your honey a fragrant reminder of the day you said ‘I do.’
In the latest issue of New Orleans Bride Magazine, our beauty editor Mirella Cameron put together three fabulous scents sure to bring a sweet scent to your nuptials.
Si eau de toilette
Could there be a more perfect fragrance than Si, the new Giorgio Armani Eau de Toilette? A modern, chypre scent, Si has a top note of deep blackcurrant nectar, a middle note of airy florals and a base note of musky blonde wood. It’s easy to say, “I do,” to this perfect marriage of scent profiles.
Les Exclusifs de Chanel Misia eau de toilette
No bride disappoints wearing Chanel No. 5, but perhaps it’s time to create a new classic with Misia, the latest in the brand’s collection: Les Exclusifs de Chanel. Launched in March, it’s named after Misia Sert, a friend of Coco Chanel. Feminine and floral with notes of violet, iris, orrisroot, Turkish rose and rose from Grasse, it evokes the sophisticated glamour of the 1920s.
Diana Vreeland Parfums, Smashingly Brilliant Eau de Parfum
Parfumer Clement Gavarry and the grandson of Diana Vreeland collaborated to create Smashingly Brilliant, the latest fragrance honoring the U.S. Vogue editor. Inspired by her love of Capri, bursts of lemon and bergamot oils give way to aromatic notes of verbena, basil and juniper. With wood and suede as the ‘dry down’ or final notes, it’s both refreshing and seductive.
