I’ve been a perfume lover myself ever since I can remember, basically my whole life. I own an impressive perfume collection and although I like them all, I keep only a few of them very close to my heart.
Today I’m going to present the top best perfumes suited to be worn by a bride on her wedding day.
For that matter, I believe that Guerlain’s Aqua Allegoria Flora Nymphea is maybe the best wedding perfume. After looking for information and reading a lot of reviews, I blind-bought it and it proved to be a really entertaining fragrance. The smell is very realistic, suave and somehow fresh, although the sweetness of honey is one of its dominant features. The main three notes that evolve from this amazing fragrance are the beautiful Syringa (lilac), orange blossom and, as I already mentioned, honey. The picture evoked is that of blooming oranges and lilacs, with bees flying around from flower to flower. Flora Nymphea is pure poetry. No wonder that the poets’ flower (lilac) brings together the composition, gracefully seconded by the rest of the notes. Very feminine, it produces a magical aura that lasts for almost 12 hours, depending on your skin type.
Another great choice for a young bride that ironically may not be that much of a perfumista is La Chasse Aux Papillons, one of the most popular fragrances proposed by the niche house L`Artisan Parfumeur. Being very delicate and subtle, La Chasse Aux Papillons is so gentle that has nothing not to like about it. Also, it is not very lasting, but it compensates by its soft charming bouquet. Tuberose is more pronounced than the other flowers, of which I mention the lime (very rare in perfumes) and jasmine. In a few words, an expressive, graceful, pure and bright perfume.
Number three on my best bridal perfumes chart is White by Creed, an interesting floral not at all common, which gives me a feeling of cleanliness and purity. You first notice the touch of rice with a powdery suave note, a blooming jasmine and sandalwood. The perfume smells expensive; it doesn’t have that plastic feel, no note or anything that could compromise the scent. It has a musky final, fine and beautiful, giving it a clean, but not at all synthetic smell.
Moving on, I would like to emphasize on some of the best vanilla perfumes a bride could wear on her most special day.
First of all, Kenzo Amour by Kenzo is a warm fragrance, which gives a soothing state of bliss, a fragrance that calms you and exudes nothing but positive energy. Amour is mainly a vanilla perfume, but not as sweet as the vanilla you may find in perfumes like Chopard’s Kashmir, but a balanced vanilla, ethereal and suave that blurs out the other notes of the fragrance. Vanilla is here a strong base note, which remains present from the beginning to the end. It is lovely because it is warm and sweet. A creamy vanilla, which together with rice and cherry blossom creates a very inviting scent. It gives a terrible state of wearing comfort, simply wrapped and protected in serene savory notes, which makes it one the best vanilla perfumes.
Next in line, Hypnotic Poison by Christian Dior is another beautiful vanilla fragrance that fully deserves its reputation. It cannot go unnoticed, so to speak. It really is unique and haunting, sweet, not fresh, fruity or floral. It is very strong it can give you headaches, so it’s best suited for loud perfume lovers. Persistence is extremely high; it can become overwhelming to others if applied too much.
The ultimate vanilla perfume, more classic, yet still mysterious and profound is another Dior masterpiece, Addict.
This is an opulent, erotic, sensual and mystical fragrance, enchanting and hypnotizing. It is strong and contrasting, fascinating, intriguing and exciting. For me, it is the perfect wedding night scent. I would recommend this to any woman who loves oriental perfumes. Tonka beans with vanilla and orange blossom are combined to make this perfume a bold creamy fragrance. The name says it all. Sweet, but not heavy, passionate, but not heated, it has a very complex composition that unfolds and evolves in several stages. Simply amazing.
