Bride and Groom Wedding Packs 2019 – Shared intimacy, shared memories

The Wedding Register by Edmund Blair Leighton, 1920

Bristol City Museum and Art Gallery - wikipedia.com

It’s wedding season! Yep, according to Brides Magazine, ‘In general, wedding season months begin in late spring and continue through early fall and are therefore the most expensive, with weddings peaking in June and September’.

But we can tell you from experience that when people want to get married, they’re gonna get married no matter what season it is.

Planning a wedding can be daunting, even if it’s a small, intimate one. You still have to decide on who to invite (or who not to invite…) rings, venue, cake, photographer, dress, shoes, suit, tux and flowers - need we go on?

But here’s the thing: your wedding day is YOUR DAY. It’s the day when two people express their deep love and commitment to each other before friends and family. 

So let’s get down to it: this is no time to break out the Axe spray or the seductive, sexy OTT fragrances. No, those can be for the after-party.

For your wedding day, you want something on the light side, not overpowering or room-filling. Something, that when you lean into each other, you get a calming sense of the nearness of your betrothed. Something you share just with each other in a room full of people.

Remember, the sense of smell carries incredible power to evoke memories of your special day so we’ve put together four unique and special fragrances for Her, and four for Him, in separate decant packs so that you can test them on your skin. Then choose one to share between you, or choose a scent for yourself that will bring memories of your special day back to you whenever you wear it.

BRIDE Wedding Pack 2019   

Four 1 ml. decants for $12.75 plus shipping, regular price $17.00

After my Own Heart– Ineke

The name says it all. This is a soliflore based on lilac, the fresh opening of green bergamot and fruity, tart raspberry leads right to a heart of lilac with sandalwood, with heliotrope and musk contributing a soft, slightly soapy, powdery finish. It’s clean yet intimate making it the perfect wedding scent. And those lilacs! So romantic, so evocative. This is the scent of an everlasting love.

Acqua di Colonia– Santa Maria di Novella

This cologne is the perfect wedding scent. After all, it was created for Catherine de Medici for her wedding to Henry ll of France. Colognes are ideal for weddings. Long days of meeting people, eating, dancing and being centre-stage, they keep you smelling fresh throughout it all. Acqua di Colonia opens fresh and bright with lemon and bergamot. After a few minutes, white floral notes appear, along with a hint of rose, that temper the citrus so that it evolves into a lovely soft floral. Spice notes show up at the base to give it warmth and depth. It’s a beautiful combination of freshness and warmth that will carry you through the day and into the evening.

How You Love– Jazmin Sarai - Tender, pure, and soulful

With a light soothing swirl of green cardamom and sun-warmed grapefruit, How You Love soon leads into an harmonious accord of velvety rose-jasmine florals, understated and beautifully framed by an herbal-sweet citrus. The drydown reveals a soulful blend of musk and creamy sandalwood, sweetened with ambered honey and earthy beeswax. How You Love has a subdued waft and is tender, sensual and soulful… a fragrant perfection for a Wedding Day.

Morn to Dusk– Eau d’Italie – Vanilla the Italian way - sensuous and elegant

Morn to Dusk is warm, slightly floral, slightly gourmand with a sensual vibration just below the surface. It’s vanilla note is there from top to bottom but is no way sweet or foody. The soft scent opens with vanilla tinged with citrus and white florals, the lime of bergamot, the green floralcy of lily of the valley. It’s fresh, light and airy, with a quiet energy. And then it becomes silky and smooth and very chic, with a hint of almond and grasses as it deepens into the heart. Subdued, with an intimate sillage, it is pure pleasure to wear and breathe its calming sensuous elegance all day from morn to dusk. Ah, those Italians - they understand love and pleasure and beauty.

Four 1 ml. decants for $16.00 plus shipping, regular price $20.00

Jil Sander Man– Jil Sander

What makes this the perfect choice for a groom on his wedding day? Jil Sander Man has a vintage feel at the start but evolves into distinctive, and unique modern fragrance that stays close to the skin, quietly exuding a handsome, confident, manliness for hours.The way it performs and the way it smells. It opens with a swoosh of citrusy, bitter bergamot. As the bitterness fades, bergamot’s fruity and aromatic facets come forward, and are picked by lavender and powdery violet. It’s elegant, floral and sweet but definitely on the masculine side. As it blooms, sage warms it with a gentle peppery, spiciness before it gets dry, woody and smoky from vetiver. At the base, the woodiness is deepened by cedarwood, while bitter, resinous myrrh makes it darker, pushed on by bitter, herbal, artemesia. There is a thread of camphour that plays on the edge of the darkness. It starts with the sage, is echoed by the cedar and arrives with the balsamic aspect of the myrrh. A note of Russian leather is quiet and mellow. The drydown is resinous, woody and aromatic while being elegant and polished.

PG20 L’eau Guerrière– Parfumerie Générale -  Earthy, grassy, musky, and sexy.

The opening of L’Eau Guerrière,or Warrior Water, is citrusy and herbal and aromatic, sparkling and fresh. Then it softens as it dries down with a distant woods and incense accord, but when the musk note appears, L’Eau Guerrière, puts on its sexy face. The mix of musk and incense feels a little dangerous, a little exotic, with wafts of leather and hints of the unmistakable aroma of green marijuana. In the end the musky incense becomes a soft subtle accord, almost contemplative, and L’Eau Guerrière relaxes into skin scent par excellence, lasting deliciously all through the night. Definitely wedding-worthy….

Lui– Guerlain - A true Him/Her beauty 

The French pronoun Lui can refer to Her or Him. Created as a” gender-free fragrance, a universal perfume for the new gender order”, Lui is about benzoin, the balsamic resin note that’s similar to vanilla and makes amber smell warm and comforting and powerful. Not dark, or loud, or polarizing, Lui’s  balsamic core creates a soft honeyed effect of velvety sueded leather, vanilla and musk which becomes surprisingly light and almost transparent. Lui dries down with its notes in soothing harmony, radiating a powerful “lean-in” quality, alternately floral, powdery, spicy, woody and softly sensual. Accented with pale wafts of smoke, the low sillage is intimate and lasts on skin for hours. Lui is perfection on a groom or a bride, or a groom AND a bride, a shared private scent on their Wedding Day.

Sartorial– Penhaligon’s

This is where the classic fougère meets the 21stcentury.Lavender combined with leather and modernized with beeswax all resting on a base of oakmoss and musk, jazzed up with amber, cedarwood, patchouli and myrrh. Tonka bean and vanilla add the perfect touch of sweetness. Sartorial is the perfect gentleman’s fragrance – never loud or harsh but masculine, refined and elegant. It’s a beautiful way to start a new life.
