It would be very difficult to find a woman who does not dream about her wedding day. Since it is often a culmination of many details, it is not surprising to see that many of its aspects have been thought out through and through.
However, one detail that often escapes the attention of most brides and wedding planners is the perfume that the people involved in it would wear.
The dress, the food, the venue all make up your total experience. What will round it off into completion is to ensure that all the senses are delightfully stimulated. The kind of perfume the bride wears can have a significant effect on the mood of the occasion. Whatever is chosen has to be something that pleases the groom as well as relaxes the bride.
What most experts recommend is the use of single note perfumes, which are made to have the scent of a specific plant or flower. Although most of what is available comes from natural ingredients such as essential oils, they can also be made of synthetic components. In the case of the latter, this is because the fragrance of the flower cannot be extracted so they have to be replicated. An example of this would be in the case of the freesia flower. In some cases, single note perfumes are actually made up of a surprisingly large number of ingredients.
To help the bride choose the kind of perfume she will wear on her special day, a good guide to use is the fragrance family that is used for the other components of the event such as the floral arrangements.
It should go with the theme or the overall mood evoked by the wedding. For example, if it is a garden wedding, then the best scents to use are light and floral ones. On the other hand, a rustic woodsy environment can allow the bride to wear deeper single note perfumes such as leather fragrances.
The reason for the need to match the scent of the bride with the rest of the event is to avoid having so many competing aromas going on at the same time.
The sense of smell has long been associated with evoking various feelings and emotions. Therefore, the single note perfumes used by the bride can have a calming and soothing effect.
Citrus and white flowers are known to lower stress levels while jasmine and ylang ylang can be relaxing and uplift the spirits. These scents can complement the overall feeling of the occasion and enhance the mood of the bride.
When choosing your wedding day scent, make it one that will definitely keep You, The Bride, calm and relaxed.
