Did you buy a new perfume for your wedding? I do love the thought of using it and remembering the day, as I have had that happen in the past (like a perfume I bought at B&BW was worn for a HS dance, and now I always think of that dance when I smell it).
I am debating, as I have not gone out and bought a new perfume for-ev-er!
I currently switch between VS Heavenly, Burberry Brit, D&G Light Blue, Jennifer Aniston, and a couple random ones I have sitting around.
Ideas of what I might like? I do usually smell perfuemes when I’m places like Sephora or Ulta… so I know names, just not sure about them all.

Kacie209: I am. 🙂 I’ve narrowed it down to a few, but I haven’t chosen yet (I have time!)
I’m the same way, I connect smells to memories. I wore Chance by Chanel for the first few times while I was on a ski vacation in Aspen. Now I think of Aspen and skiing every time I spray it (which is fine! It’s a great memory. But it now feels like a ‘winter’ scent to me. Wearing it in the summer is weird!
Edited: I’m not good at recommending any thing based on other scents (and I find the ones I’m ‘supposed’ to like based upon the ones I wear, I don’t always love.)
I wear: Burberry brit sheer (the pink one), Chance by Chanel (the eau tendre), Romance by Ralph Lauren.
I’m considering – J’Adore by Dior (there’s a softer smelling one…), Pleasures by Estee Lauder (the play version, I think), Daisy by Marc Jacobs… I’m sure there were others as well.

Definitely do a test run. Perfumes react differently depending on your body’s chemistry.

Kacie209: We have very similar tastes in perfume. My “go to” summer perfume is Light Blue also. My going out and regular go to perfume is J’Adore by Dior which I am considering wearing for my wedding. Giorgio Armani Giorgio Armani Acqua di Gioia is similar to Light Blue but may give you that something special you are looking for.

sostobe: I always wanted Dior Miss Dior Cherie, but they don’t have it out anymore. I sitll have a sample size, but that kind of defeats the purpose. 🙂
womanofsubstance: Yeah, I may need to venture out again to Sephora/Ulta and just start smelling some, or spritzing and letting it sit for awhile to see what scents come out.
I like some of the philosophy ones too, but they have so many… hard to choose!

sostobe: You can’t go wrong with J’Adore. My fiance still remembers our first date.

I cannot wait to do this! It’s such a brilliant idea.
I love Romance by Ralph Lauren. But I’ve also seen one called Something Blue by Oscar de la Renta. So cute.

MissCoupon: I so wanted the Something Blue, but then I smelled it and did not like it at all 🙁
I’ll take Fiance shopping and maybe we will pick a wedding scent together.

Kacie209: I wore a perfume I always wore on my wedding day– something that I loved, and I knew my husband loves–
if you buy a new one, make sure you try it out with your body chemistry a couple times before the wedding.

DKNY be delicious is my favorite, and what I will use. It’s something that I wear all the time and will be reminded of my wedding day everytime I smell it!

What a brilliant idea! Going to have to start the hunt.

Kacie209: I’ll probably wear one of my usual perfumes. I always wear either White Diamonds, or Red Door by Elizabeth Arden. Both scents are really “me”, which is what I want for my wedding day! I also like that my partner will be reminded of it whenever he smells my perfume.
(ETA: Yep, I know I have “old lady” taste in perfume, but those suit me better than any newer ones!)

Kacie209: I ended up getting Philosphy “Falling in Love”. I agree though- they have so many and it was difficult to choose! I stood in Sephora for a while just smelling back and forth and then just got more and more confused the more I smelled lol I work in a fragrance free facility so I don’t typically wear fragrance so it will be nice to have something special to remind me of my wedding day.

Kacie209: I test a new perfume (or re-test one) every time I’m near a perfume counter.
I don’t notice a huge change in the way anything smells on me, but one of my best friends finds that every smell changes on her. So after her experience I always test and retest!
I spray one on each wrist and let it dry. Then I’m able to see what they smell like a few hours later (and find which ones seem to fade!)
By the time I buy a new fragrance I’ve worn it several times! 😛

My husband and I both did this! I wore Clean’s Shower Fresh scent and he wore Glenn Perri’s Unpredictable. They are both on the lighter, fresh side.
