Your wedding day fragrance is such a special choice – a waft of the perfume you wore on your big day evokes so many memories, but have you thought about how you’ll fragrance the rest of your day? The Duchess of Cambridge chose to fill her wedding with Jo Malone’s Orange Blossom candles. This went perfectly with her floral fragrance, but what would you choose? Here are some of our top picks.
You can’t go wrong with a big, beautiful candle. Creating atmosphere with its flickering flame and sending fragrance around your day, people will remember your wedding every time they smell it in years to come.
Jo Malone’s Peony and Blush Suede has hints of red apple alongside fresh peonies, jasmine and roses. Perfectly light for a summer wedding and ideal to match your own fragrance – match it or choose something floral that compliments it.
Diptypque’s Gardenia offers a classic white floral fragrance, perfectly suited to a wedding day. Why not include gardenias in your bouquet and match the scent to your wedding flowers, spreading the fragrance across the whole of your day?!
Penhaligon’s Blenheim Bouquet fragrance was created over one hundred years ago; a mix of citrus oils, spices and woods. This scent has been transformed into a candle, with the citrus shining through like sunshine.
The White Company’s Lime and Bay candle is like walking through a tropical garden. Fusing mandarin, lemon and lime with jasmine, ginger and bay, this is a colourfully vibrant fragrance for a fresh spring wedding.
Molten Brown’s Orange and Bergamot has base notes of delicate orange flower and musk, sitting underneath ginger, orange, mandarin and lemon. A gloriously summery fragrance for a sunny wedding.
Not a candle fan? Why not spray your favourite perfume onto the table linen? Or go with a diffuser and pop them on each table and round the room. Reed diffusers work well, and give an extra little gift to your guests at the end of the day. Alternatively go for something that adds to the décor. I love this hand carved La Boule D’Ambre Geante from L’Artisan Parfumeur. Balmy notes of vanilla, patchouli and tonka bean create a gorgeous aroma, mixed with heady incense for a luxurious fragrance.
