Eau em gee - choosing your wedding-day fragrance

With one whiff of Chanel Cristalle Eau Vert, I’m transported to my wedding day - the emotions, tender moments and special memories all come tumbling back. That’s why choosing the perfect fragrance is every bit as important as your ring, venue or dress: it will forever evoke your most cherished memories, both for you and for your hubby to be.

  1. Choose something different to your signature scent - you want something that feels different to the everyday, which will immediately take you back to your wedding and honeymoon as soon as you catch a sniff.
  2. Try a sample. Body chemistry can change how a scent smells on your skin, so try before you buy! During wear-time, the fragrance will alter as the top, middle and base notes are revealed. So wear your perfume for at least a day to make sure you love it - and that your groom will like it, too.
  3. Consider the occasion, too. For a country-style wedding, something fresh and light might be preferred - check out Elie Saab’s Eau de Parfum. Planning a beach-side bash? Estée Lauder’s Bronze Goddess would be ideal, whereas an evening affair calls for something a little more sophisticated. Try Chanel No. 5 Eau Premier - a softer, lighter interpretation of the iconic No. 5.
  4. Make it last. Layer up to make sure your perfume goes the distance. If your budget allows, invest in the coordinating shower gel and body lotion and keep a rollerball in your bridal purse. Chanel Chance, a favorite bridal scent, comes with a coordinating hair mist, deodorant and shimmering body powder too!
  5. Keep things rosy. Rose-based scents are perfect for brides as they’re timelessly romantic. Try a contemporary take such as Roses De Chloé, Stella Nude or Balenciaga Rosabotanica: they’re all light, fresh interpretations of a classic, feminine scent.
