Good morning Cwtchers!A little while ago we asked some of our recent brides what perfume they wore on their wedding day. To give you some inspiration we have compiled some of the most popular scents along with some (lets ‘push the boat out’ ones too!).We all know that a certain smell can transport you right back to that moment you first smelt it, so making it the right one for the big day is tricky! I personally got a little stressy over it. My sense of smell is ridiculously sensitive, so I am very aware of perfumes. I spent hours at the smellies counter in Boots and John Lewis. Hours I tell you! I needed to find that perfect wedding perfume.Then I made the choice. I went for a classic. A smell I knew well and adored, so treated myself to Chanel No.5.If it’s good enough for Marilyn Monroe, it’s good enough for Anna Lock to be.I decided it was going to be the last thing I put on, so I could spritz the dress and everything. My reasoning was so that in the future, I could still smell a hint of it on my dress, and be transported back to that special day.However, after all that fuss of getting ready in the morning, I had left it at home and ended up having to wear my Mums (a well passed its shelf life date) Something by Someone. No idea what it was. Just needed something so grabbed it. It could’ve been my Dad’s Amaris as far as I knew!All of my flapping however did fill my head with random perfume knowledge, so thought it would be more useful shared with you lovely lot. Just remember to take the damn thing with you when you finally make your choice!
Coco Mademoiselle by Chanel
One of Chanel’s lighter fragrances, Coco Mademoiselle is such a pretty, but strong fragrance, it seems to have the personality we all we wish we had. Its got the classic Chanel packaging and would make the perfect dressing table accessory amongst your wedding jewellery. Available at many retailers, but we found the 35ml at Boots starting at £49.
Romance by Ralph Lauren
This popular fragrance is popular for a reason. It is a classic and so feminine and pretty with a light floral fragrance that will stay with you. The name itself is a winner for your wedding perfume! And starting at £36 from a variety of retailers (also found it on Amazon for £26.55), it really is something that you could treat yourself to many times in the future too.
Santal Blush by Tom Ford
Santal Blush is a heavenly mixture of floral and woody scents. It just smells so sumptuously exotic, you feel like a million Great British Pounds when you’re wearing it. It is however, a little on the pricey said, start at £145 for 50ml (available from House of Fraser).
Armani Code by Armani
