Tips in Selecting the Appropriate Perfume for Your Wedding


Use perfume to reveal who you are. "A woman's perfume tells more about her than her handwriting," stated Christian Dior. Whether or not that is true, your perfume reveals a lot about who you are through your choice of scent.

Additionally, wearing the right perfume is an art. You need to find a scent that pleases you, which can take trial and error. We will list down some tips to help you select the right one for your wedding. 

1. Establish the Mood

Before choosing a perfume, you need to determine the mood of your wedding. It has to be in sync with your theme, which you can establish through the type of food you serve, the colors of the flowers, and even the music you'll use. You will use your perfume to convey the mood of the day.

2. Consider Who You Are and Your Personality

Your choice of perfume should be in line with your personality. If you are laidback and more of a homebody, you probably should not wear something that smells strongly of roses. If you are more eccentric, florals and berries will not be your choice of perfume. Your scent should be in tune with your personality.

3. Understand Your Tastes

Your choice of perfume should be in tune with your tastes. Perhaps you have already established that you are edgy and like to be noticed. Your choice of perfume should also be edgy and help you stand out from the crowd.

4. Be Familiar with the Notes

Understand the notes of your perfume. Every scent has a pyramid, which is the list of notes used in making the fragrance. Your perfume is composed of top, middle, and base notes. The base notes give your aroma its lasting power, while the top notes are the part of the scent that reflects its first impression. The middle notes make up the bulk of the smell.

Tips on How to Select the Best Scent for You

There are countless scents available in the market. Hence, choosing which scent will be most suitable for you can be challenging. You need to know your body chemistry. That will let you know what scents will work best for you. Once you know that, you'll be able to decide which perfume will complement your skin.

1. Use a Sample Card to Test the Aroma

Test out several scents to see how they react with your skin. Place a drop of your perfume on the card. Apply the perfume to different areas of your skin. Be sure to test the scent both at night and during the day. That will give you an idea of how it will react with your body chemistry.

2. Be Aware of How Both Light and Heavy Scents React with Your Skin

You can feel how the fragrance you choose reacts with your skin. You can take a flask of your favorite scent with you wherever you go.

3. Wear Perfume That Will Last All Day Long

The best perfume for your wedding should last long. That will allow your scent to last all day, which will complement your wedding day attire.

How to Maximize the Benefits of Your Perfume Bottle

You can boost the scent of your perfume by applying it to your pulse points — areas where arteries run close to the skin. Warmblood from the veins makes these areas warmer than the rest of your body so that the perfume will be diffused and smell better. Alternatively, you might spray perfume onto other body parts that will keep it warm — such as your elbows, knees, belly button, ankles, or any other aspect of your body.


Choosing the right perfume for your wedding day is essential. The scent you choose needs to complement your needs. You can achieve that through the techniques that are listed above.
