CHANEL No 5 Eau De Parfum

Review

As luxury fragrances go, Chanel No 5 is iconic and guaranteed to add some elegance and opulence to your wedding. Floral powdery notes of lily of the valley, ylang-ylang and jasmine are supported by warming sandalwood, vanilla and vetiver.

The woody base ensures that this is a long-lasting perfume which hangs in cold air very well (without being overpowering). As such you won’t have to worry about constantly reapplying this scent as the day wears on, nor will it let you down when you step out on the town for an evening. Very long-lasting at 5+ hours on skin.

4. Slow Dance

Byredo-Slow-Dance-Eau-de-Parfum
Byredo Slow Dance Eau de Parfum

Review

The inspiration for Slow Dance Eau de Parfum from Byredo is the transitional stage into full-blown adulthood. It is a sensual and intimate fragrance that is perfect for your wedding day.

With dominant notes of sweet/warming opoponax & a trio of floral (geranium, violet, and labdanum) this scent is nicely complemented by a base of warm spiciness for added complexity. The incense, patchouli and vanilla really shine throughout.

The longevity of this fragrance is fairly long lasting, 4+ hours on skin.

The classic presentation of a cylindrical glass bottle topped by a black, rounded cone allows you to easily add this perfume to your Byredo suite.

Top Notes:

Cognac, opoponax

Mid Notes:

Geranium, violet, and labdanum

Base Notes:

Patchouli, incense, and vanilla

5. Pomegranate Noir

Pomegranate-Noir-cologne-Jo-Malone
Pomegranate Noir Cologne By Jo Malone

Review

Pomegranate Noir Cologne is one of Jo Malone’s signature fruity and aromatic fragrances that is perfect for spring/autumn/winter weddings.

A veritable buffet of all sorts of fruits and berries combine wonderfully in this cocktail of aromas. They have also added a good amount of woodiness for a soothing warmth once the sweetness fades.

The longevity of this fragrance was moderately long-lasting. Although the ‘star’ note of pomegranate faded a little after about an hour or so, the clove, amber, pepper and musk remained after 4+ hours.

Pomegranate Noir Cologne is presented in the most classic way in a rectangular glass bottle with a silvery metallic topper.

Top Notes:

Raspberry, Pomegranate, Plum, Rhubarb, Watermelon

Mid Notes:

Lily-of-the-valley, Jasmine, Rose, Pink Pepper, Clove, Olibanum, Opoponax, Guaiac wood

8. Portrait of a Lady

Frederic-Malle-Portrait-Of-A-Lady-Eau-de-Parfum-image
Frederic Malle Portrait Of A Lady Eau de Parfum

Review

Launched in 2010, Portrait of a Lady by Frederic Malle was blended by the inimitable Dominique Ropion. Intended to evoke the spirit of the novel’s heroine, Isabel Archer, Portrait of a Lady is an intense and complex blend of spice, musk, and floral scents with light, fruity notes to save it from becoming too heavy.

With a modern twist on classically sensual ingredients, Portrait of a Lady is a perfect perfume for autumn/winter weddings, when the cold can overpower lighter scents. The warm, heavy scents used to give this perfume a strong base also help it to last for hours.

A single application will generally last a full 6+ hours.

Top Notes:

Cinnamon, Clove, Turkish Rose, Blackcurrant, Raspberry.

Mid Notes:

Patchouli, Sandalwood, Incense

Base Notes:

Musk, Amber, Benzoin

9. F****** Fabulous by Tom Ford

TOM FORD Private Blend Fabulous Eau de Parfum
F****** Fabulous by Tom Ford

Review

This is one of Tom Fords flagship fragrances and is extremely high on the compliment scale. Although the name may put you off (or not!), this is a surprisingly rich, smooth and uplifting fragrance delivering a rather decadent vibe. When we first encountered it in Harrods we both looked at each other and said “wow!”

This is perhaps one for your wedding evening when all the formalities are over, and you can finally settle down and enjoy the party.

With a name that incorporates a somewhat bold statement, it’s no surprise that this fragrance opens with an energetic punch of both sage and lavender. These settle after 10 minutes or so, to allow the deeper notes of bitter almond, vanilla, tonka and leather in particular to mingle slowly and ultimately rise to the surface.

This is a long lasting fragrance of 5+ hours on skin and even longer on clothes.

A bottle with the standard Tom Ford clean lines and squat design. Be aware that the actual bottle does clearly display the F-word, so if young eyes are present you may need to pop it in a drawer.

Top Notes:

Sage, Lavender

Mid Notes:

Bitter Almond, Vanilla, Orris

Base Notes:

Tonka Bean, Leather, Amber

10. Joy Intense

Joy Intense by DIOR
Joy Intense by Dior

Joy Intense captures the feeling of happiness in a bottle so this is perfect for your special day. A beautiful combination of citrus scents and woody musks makes this a cheerful fragrance which is as charming as it is alluring.

The mixture of different fragrances is rich and complicated, but they work together to create an overall sense of lightness and energy which lasts all day.

Although rich with woody musks, the freshness of Joy Intense means it is also suitable as a day perfume and would be perfect for not only your wedding breakfast, but the evening too.

The bottle is simple yet classic with its delicate pink colour and smooth roundness that suggests peace and feminine delight. Its bejewelled cap suggests a touch of elegance and classic wealth which gives it a certain allure.

Top Notes

Citrus and neroli

Mid Notes

Centifolia rose and jasmine grandiflorum

Base Notes:

Vanilla, sandalwood and patchouli

Conclusion

The best perfume to wear on your wedding day should be a scent that feels special to you. Fragrance is such a personal journey as what feels right for one person may not suit another.

My main piece of advice is when you discover your perfect wedding fragrance, wear it for at least a few weeks prior to your big day.

This has two main benefits. Firstly you get to ensure you are happy with the fragrance. Secondly, as the big day moves nearer you will associate that fragrance with excitement and anticipation of the build up (course the big day itself!) for years to come.
