Your Wedding will be the most magical experience of your life, but yet, shopping for a wedding dress, beauty products and accessories is much more stressful than it seemed the minute after you said yes.

It is said the best time to start shopping for your wedding is about one year before the big event. Just to be sure all will be how you dreamt about it when you were a little girl with a white pillowcase over your head walking slowly down the hallway. However, shopping for a wedding gown a year in advance may seem too soon. Seeing too many gowns too far in advance may add unnecessary stress. And remember that new wedding gown designs are usually released in October and April, a year before they are available in bridal stores. So the key here is to be patient.

On the other hand, what we recommend to start with as soon as possible is the special fragrance you will always remember your wedding day by.

The scent is key to our memories

There is always one specific scent that brings you back in your memories, back to happy days and to your childhood. That is why your wedding day deserves a scent that will always bring you back to this exact point of your life, every time you unscrew the bottle cap. The scent has closer links to our memory than a taste, touch or sight, it is a king of all the senses.

So if you love to switch perfumes according to your mood or you are always faithful to the same perfume, keep in mind your wedding perfume should be something special, luxurious and something you’ve never worn before.

When it comes to wedding beauty, the best advice is to aim for a more elevated version of your day-to-day fragrance and makeup. Answer the following questions to find your new and special perfume for women to accompany you on the happiest day of your life.

When and where the wedding takes place?

A winter wedding calls for rich scents full of spices, woody notes and juicy berries. Summer wedding, on the other hand, calls for crisp and fresh scents with a hint of citrus and flower notes. There is also a difference between scents suitable for a daytime wedding and an evening wedding. But no worries, it is not rocket science. Basically, if your wedding takes place outside or in the evening, feel free to reach for more sophisticated and heavier fragrances. In case a daytime wedding or inside one, go for lighter, fresher and classic scents.

Well, the perfume ONE.

Last but not least. What is your bridal style going to be? It depends on your personality, what makes you feel beautiful and how exactly you want to feel on your wedding day.
