I never thought I’d like this fragrance, but when I tried it on I was still sniffing my arm hours later. I usually wear this one but it has a very springy-summery scent and (yikes) reminds me on an ex-boyfriend. I totally know what you mean when you say the fragrance can be like a timestamp. I find myself changing perfumes after one bottle is gone just because of that. The only one I have ever stuck with long term is Babydoll.

Ooh, fun topic!  I am a total perfume freak.  I would love to be one of those girls with one ‘signature scent’ but I always fall in love with a new fragrance.  I totally agree that once whiff of a scent can bring you back to a specific moment in an instant so I have been trying to find the perfect one for my wedding day.  I definitely want something classic rather than trendy, so you have a good liklihood of it always being available. My fiance’s favorite perfume I wear is Clean but it’s not formal enough for a wedding I think.  I know I am going to have to let him narrow it down from my final choices because he is VERY picky about perfume.  Anyone wear Estee Lauder Sensous? I am loving that right now and feel like that could be a good wedding day fragrance, soft, warm, feminine, not too overpowering.  I’m excited to hear what other girls are wearing!

Ya know what my mom bought me which was perfect for picking a wedding scent? Sephora sells a pack for $50 where you get sample vials of their 10 most popular perfumes as well as a certificate to get a full size bottle of whichever you liked. After trying them all, I picked Stella by Stella McCartney, though Marc Jacob’s Daisy was a close second.

I’ll be wearing Mark Jacob’s Daisy, although I’ve saving the bottle so my first memory of wearing it will be on my wedding day.

I love the perfume I received for Christmas, Lacoste pour femme…  I’m not sure if it’s what I want for the wedding day- it is close though: light, airy, feminine, pretty. All the best thins really!

I just fell in love with "The One" by Dolce & Gabbana yesterday! I will be buying it soon, then definitely using it for my wedding day scent. It’s a beautiful, sweet, light scent. 🙂

I like the original Chanel Chance. I also like the new Juicy scent.

I agree about the perfume being a sort of "time stamp" on the wedding day. They say the best way to jog a memory is through scent. I think it depends where your getting married. If your going to be at a beach, you might wnat something a little lighter…

Whatever you decide smells right on you, use it the day of your wedding and while on your honeymoon, but he trick is to NEVER use it again! That way, the smell will take you back to only THAT time in your life. Maybe pull it out for an anniversary or special occasion with your future husband to remember that time in your life 🙂

I love Abercrombie & Fitch No. 8.  It’s funny because it’s the only reason I even go into that store!  I’ll be wearing that!

My Hunny always says that his favorite perfume of mine is the one I wore when we met because it makes him think of that day and the begining of our relationship.  So I’ll be wearing that – Lacoste, pour femme.

I use Ralph Lauren Romance as my everyday perfume.  I know that I want to use a signature scent for our wedding (and then anniversaries after that) but I have yet to look into it.  I think my Fiance is planning on getting a new cologne for the day as well!  😀

I went in thinking I was going to get D&G "The One", but ended up going very classic and getting Vera Wang.  I never would have thought thats what I would end up wearing, but I put it on and knew that was it.  I wore it for the wedding and every night on our honeymoon… and haven’t worn it since.  I’ll break it out for special occasions, though!

Tocca- Cleopatra.  You can buy it at Sephora and Anthropologie.  It is described as "lush greens mingle with grapefruit, cassis, peach nectar and golden amber"

 

Though I would also consider wearing something from cbihateperfume.com…
