Scents and smells are incredibly powerful and just the smell of something familiar can take us back to a moment in time, to experience sensations and feelings all over again.
And because wedding days are one of the most emotional and important events in our lifetime, our selection of perfume for the day/night is a smell which can be forever associated.
Ladies and gents, which particluar scents have you chosen to wear/did you wear on your big day?
How did you choose given that there are hundreds of perfumes and fragrances on the market?
Was it the same fragrance your mother or grandmother wore, or did you choose the scent most appropriate for your wedding/reception setting?

Jo Malone – Orange Blossom
Both of us love it so much and he says that when I wear it, it reminds him of summer. What’s better than smelling like the best season ever?!

I’m tossing up between Hilary Duff With Love and Dolce & Gabbana The One. I like really sweet pretty fragrances but I also want a perfume in a nice bottle with a nice name that resembles our wedding and our love.

My husband doesn’t care much about scent (I’m the one with a sensitive nose), and he loved both the sample from the Ulta ad rubbed on my skin (which we both usually find gross) and the real thing. I bought a rollerball I pull out on special occasions or when I’m feeling really “blah.”
My regular scents are Lolita Lempicka and Givenchy Ange Ou Demon Le Secret.

I will be wearing Chloé — I know this even though I’m not getting married until 2015. I’d love for my photographer to include it’s elegant bottle with grosgrain ribbon in the detail shots!

Vera Wang’s ‘Princess’.
DH bought it for me to wear specifically on that day. I’ve had it on my list of perfume wants (yes, I have a list, lol) for a while, and after smelling a bunch of them, he chose it for me. It was light, and had a touch of baby powder smell to it which I thought was really feminine… it was perfect. :]

I’m sensitive to scents and haven’t switched it up in years, Voyage de Hermes is my go to.
For my wedding day I think I’m going to splurge and buy the Tom Ford Tobacco Vanilla Parfum, pricey but if there’s any excuse to buy it, I’d say getting married is it!

Probably going with Coach Poppy, though I fell in LOVE with VC Bombshell Forever the other day, so I might have to pick up a mini one.

I have an awful time with scents. I’ll probably just wear my regular, Happy by Clinique. I might dab on some Satsuma oil from the Body Shop on top of it (they mix well).
