Ambient Wedding Scents

How To Choose The Perfect Ambient Wedding Scent

An ambient wedding scent is totally subjective, but they all require a sophisticated layering of scent and share the purpose of unifying the joy, harmony and splendor of the occasion.

Their affect instantly and seamlessly transforms a wedding into an unforgettable and highly personal olfactory experience for guests and family.

Whether bold or understated, green or bespoke, a wedding scent can be anything under the sun that fulfills the olfactory desires of the bride and groom.

Love and wedding scents

While understanding this concept is easy, picking the right signature scent takes time and serious consideration both due to the sanctity of the occasion and the vast selections that we offer.

What Is The True Purpose of A Wedding Scent?

While many may not consider a wedding day scent as a must-have item, it is actually the most creative and compelling way under the sun to both honor and recall all the minute details of the day.

Memories are guaranteed to return in a kaleidoscopic rush every time that chosen scent fills the air.

This intangible customization becomes part of an immersive olfactory narrative that will always remain pure and on the fringe of recall because of the power of scent to link fragrance to the limbic system in the human brain, which associates emotion and memory.

Fragrances for Weddings

In the words of Joe Malone’s London vice president of global education and service experience, Chris Wyatt: “It’s a deeply personal experience, choosing a fragrance for a wedding day. This scent is going to be something a couple remembers for a lifetime. Think about the amount of attention a bride places on selecting the individual blooms for a wedding bouquet. Tying a wedding scent into the flowers a bride carries or on her dress will give the impression that the bride is seated at every table with every guest.”

How a bride and groom want to feel on this most joyous and important day of their lives is a benchmark when selecting a wedding scent.

Some fragrances are pretty, soft and playful, while others are daring, sensual and luxurious.

The beauty and full affect of proper selection lies in its symbol of being true to oneself, which is a privilege that justifiably overflows on a wedding day.

How To Decide On A Wedding Scent

We understand that while tastes in perfume vary almost as much as the availability of fragrances, there are some considerations that can apply at least in part to any and all choices.

Most often brides lean toward notes of orange rind, orange blossom, (Kate Middleton chose this to scent Westminster Abbey for her wedding to Prince William in 2011), creamy sandalwood, dusty violet, and dreamy, romantic rose.

According to Emma South, Jo Malone London’s fragrance expert:

“When it comes to your…fragrance preferences, we recommend wearing something that is in line with what you love so you are comfortable, yet also, something you haven’t worn before. This means that what you choose to wear is not diluted with other memories, and instead, acts as a perfect time capsule of the day.”

A Few Key Tips To Scenting A Wedding

Wedding planner experts suggest that the best time to begin selecting a wedding fragrance can be as early as a few days after an engagement is formalized. 

Deciding that far in advance and incorporating it into every wedding-related event (showers, parties etc) widens the scope of recall and its power to excite and embrace the day of the nuptials over and over again. 

Once a selection is made, the fragrance can be used in a myriad of ways throughout the wedding day including: candles, diffusers, cologne, and lotions.

Going a fragrant step further, a really fine wedding favor could include a small bottle with a bride’s scent engraved with its new monogram.

Scented keepsakes could also include: herbal sachets; hand-made soaps or miniature candles infused with the wedding scent.

Many brides and grooms rely on fragrance experts to create “pop-up” wedding bars, that disperse the wedding fragrance as guests sip on their cocktails or mingle with others during the reception.
