Everyone knows that scents can evoke powerful memories – the smell of Play Doh that instantly transports you back to your childhood or a musky mixture of mint and tobacco that reminds you of a dearly loved Grandfather. We all have scents that transport us to another time or place. Given that my wedding day will be the most important and emotive day of my life to date, I really want to set the scene for that ‘scent induced memory’ in the future. So I am going to purchase a brand new signature wedding scent for the big day. And I have narrowed it down to three:
Gucci Premiere is gorgeous. I first spotted it in duty free on our way back to NZ for our engagement party. Scent description includes ‘bergamot, orange blossom, white flowers, musk, leather and wood’ and it is quite a powerful smell. Early in our relationship, I wore Gucci by Gucci and it reminds me a bit of that.
Valentina by Valentino is also gorgeous. With ‘bergamot, truffle, orange blossom, strawberry, cedar wood and amber’, it is similar to Gucci Premiere but a little more ‘girlie’.
And the third:
Stella by Stella McCartney has always been one of my favs and her Summer Rose is equally lovely. A little more delicate than the other two, Summer Rose has rose, frosted lemon, peony and green apple notes.
Any of these three would be perfect for the big day. Now I just have to pick one!
