How to pick the perfect bridal scent

Sophie Cullen, beauty editor and our very own bride-to-be, gives you the lowdown on the best bridal scents

Pick the perfect bridal scent

Fragrance is one of the last things that people think of when it comes to their wedding,’ says Roja Dove, perfumier extraordinaire. ‘Yet fragrance is about our associations and memories and one of the most important aspects of the big day. My advice? Choose your perfume first and then create your bouquet around it.’

Another way to find the perfect bridal scent is with a perfume workshop or consultation from the likes of Creed, Jo Malone or Diptyque. All of them offer a complimentary wedding consultation with a stylist, helping you to choose the perfect scent from their collections. Bring your bridal team, enjoy a glass of bubbly and a hand massage, and come away with a beautiful bridal scent. Job done!
