Wedding-Worthy Floral Scents for Spring
Considering choosing a new fragrance, just for your wedding day? It’s a romantic idea that’s gaining popularity. Scent may have stronger connection to memories than any other sense. Will your wedding-day fragrance become your new signature scent, or will you save it for special occasions and anniversaries? With this seasons bouquet of beautiful new potions, the real question is how will you choose just one?
Valentina Pink, the latest iteration of Valentino’s ultra-feminine fragrance for women, is the sweetest yet. Centifolia rose – also known as May rose – and peony form the heart of Valentina Pink, built on a base of cashmere, amber and praline, with fruity top notes of blackberry musk and bright strawberry. But we must admit, what we love best is the striking, matte-glass pink bottle.
Roses are a classic wedding flower, and if you’ll be carrying roses in your bridal bouquet, wear a fragrance featuring this flower. À la rose, by Maison Francis Kurkdjian, a radiant, luxe floral, also uses Centafolia roses, combined with Bulgarian Damascena roses, filled out with notes of violet, magnolia, musk and cedar for soft sophistication.
Le Bouquet de la Mariee, by Guerlain, was created especially for brides. A complex floral composed of orange blossom, angelica, white musk, rose and sugared almond, this perfume is presented in an heirloom-quality, lace-wrapped, diamond-cut glass bottle glass bottle. This luxe scent is the perfect choice for a bride who will be getting married in couture.
Endless Euphoria by Calvin Klein evokes sunlit cherry blossoms. This ideal spring scent, in a pastel prismatic bottle would also make a thoughtful gift for bridesmaids in a garden wedding. Have you noticed the captivating ads, featuring Natalie Portman, for the latest iteration of Miss Dior? Sensual and sparkling, Blooming Blossom is another floral built on Damascus rose, peony and white musk, floating on soft peach, apricot and Sicilian orange. For a fascinating look at the designers behind the the dress Natalie wears, as well as the dress and bottle composed of flowers for the ads, read this fantastic post on Des & Jen.
If you love the idea of choosing a new spring wedding-day fragrance, but haven’t found the right one, start with your own wedding flowers. Sites like Fragantica let you look up scents by note. And if you already know you will be wearing a beloved signature fragrance when you say your vows, tell your floral designer. A great wedding florist can make bouquet suggestions that can compliment your perfume.
