Ban the bloat for your big day
One of the most common digestive complaints is bloating, an uncomfortable, sometimes heavy sensation that can follow...
Deciding on a wedding scent can be a personal journey for everyone and a single smell of your wedding fragrance can transport you back to the big day in years to come. Fragrance expert Elizabeth Edwards from The Perfume Shop at Bluewater shares her tips on how to select the perfect scent for your big day.
Elizabeth says, “Fragrance will play an important part in your wedding day; as scents are renowned for triggering memories, it will serve as a reminder of your special day for years to come. You may already have a ‘signature’ scent and couldn’t imagine wearing anything else, but for those who want a unique memory of their day, there’s always the option to choose something special and completely new.”
Notes are everything...
A good starting point is to think about the notes and accords you already like or that are a popular thread across your favourite fragrances; what do you currently love and what links those scents together? You may find you adore a certain floral note without even realising it.
You should also consider the location and atmosphere of the wedding; for example, a rich, heady, chypre scent may be your preferred choice and suit a dramatic winter wedding, but for a summer ceremony outdoors, something lighter and fresher may be preferred.
Going into the store to try the fragrances on the skin is important to ensure that yours and your partners' fragrances match. The consultations are carefully tailored and personal to each couple, as the team like to know your individual story to make sure they help chose the perfect wedding fragrance.
A top tip is to pop a Travalo in your wedding bag so you can top up your fragrance throughout your special day.
