Top 10 Perfumes For Brides

Top 10 Perfumes For Brides

I don’t know if you would agree with me, but I think picking up the correct perfume for the D-day is as important as picking up the right bridal makeup for a bride.  Your wedding day is not a routine day, hence so much importance is given to hair, makeup, bridal wear, shoes, and of course perfume.  You would have to pick up a different scent than what you would wear on a routine basis or as your signature scent. A wedding perfume should smell fresh, refreshing, elegant and should also last through the entire day.  Since wedding ceremonies in India take a lot of time, the perfume you choose should not only last for hours without changing, but also it should be able to lift your mood up and make you feel refreshed through the exhausting rituals.  Since you will be the center of attention, it should make you feel elegant and boost your confidence.  If you choose a wrong perfume, you will feel uncomfortable throughout. Also, it is important that you try and test the perfume that you would be wearing on your wedding day to know whether it really works for you.  Do not opt for perfumes that have been gifted to you just a day before without trying, some can even give you headache, so it’s better to try them out much before.  You might be a musk lover, but try to zero in on feminine scents – mostly floral ones.  If you do not like sweet fragrances or wholly floral or fruity ones – look for scents that have warmer notes of patchouli and vanilla to balance out the sweetness in floral and fruity perfumes.  As I mentioned before, the key is to smell fresh, youthful, feminine and romantic 😛  Do check for fresh floral notes in your perfume.  If you are having a night wedding, it would be wise to pick a stronger perfume which is sensuous enough, but certainly not dark or seductive (that you can reserve for later days :P).  If you are getting married in summers where the days would be hot, check for refreshing and aquatic notes, skip strong and warm scents.  Also, as I have mentioned previously, women should invest in good perfumes, they should never smell cheap, definitely not on your wedding day 😛 Most importantly, perfumes are about personal choice and you should try and find out what works for you the best, but here’s a list of best bridal perfumes that can help you zero in on that perfect scent for your wedding 😛

    1. Agreed Saloni, the list is tempting and it is better to have an idea of something before you actually need. Your *happy dance* and *clap* is understandable. I too, had experience with few of the names in the list. ”Miss Dior’ is obviously a great choice but, I would suggest you trying ‘Chanel Chance Eau de Parfum” which I recently tried and I am so happy with my experience.

    1. Sowmya, you should definitely invest in a good perfume for your wedding, nothing can replace the feel of an elegant perfume…..

  5. Also some really good classic aquatic and warmer scents are missing from the list. Davidoff Cool water for women, Ralph by Ralph Lauren, Hugo XX, Carolina Herrera, Nina Ricci. And some of the really classic scents that would work like Dior Posion, Chanel No. 5 and Anais Anais by Cacharel.
