We've seen many wedding trends emerge in the past years, but today we want to dive deep into a trend that will make your wedding extra memorable. Scentscaping - a direction that has taken event planning by storm, we get why, though, it offers a unique touch to any celebration, but wedding especially.
Every part of the process is carefully designed for the perfect and unforgettable celebration—invitations, flowers, food, and music, covering the usual steps. Still, weddings are about beautiful, emotional storytelling, and we are here to make sure you don't leave one of the essential senses neglected, the sense of smell. The scent is the most vital emotional trigger of them all, and tying a specific fragrance into your special day will create an unforgettable impression on your guests.
Here are some creative ways of incorporating fragrance into your wedding.
There is something extraordinary about receiving a personalized invitation in the mail in the world of digital living. Imagine if it was beautifully scented, with a fragrance that you will be wearing on your special day, providing your guest a whiff of what will come next, a celebration of love and unity, an invisible thread tying all the wedding festivities into one.
The greatest thing about a scented wedding is you can make it work on any budget, and here is how you can do it.
Entertain with a Perfume Pop Up Bar
Interactive guest experiences always bring a touch of fun and personality to any event; we have something fragrant in mind between dessert bars and photo booths-a perfume pop-up bar! A great way to entertain during the cocktail hour, we are sure your guests will be lining up to spritz themselves long after the cocktail hour has passed.
Each fragrance you choose to "serve" in your perfume bar can tell a unique story to you and your other half, sensory storytelling in a bottle. The perfumes can convey the memories of the first date, that memorable vacation, the day of the proposal, and the scent of the wedding day itself. Your pop-up perfume bar can reside in powder rooms with a few scented goodies on display for the guests to enjoy. Here are some scented products to display: a refreshing A La Rose Maison Francis Kurkdjian Hair Mist for a spritz between cocktails and dances, Not A Perfume hand cream with a clean, pure aroma of a second skin, and for a touch of ultra decadence, go with luxurious Baccarat Rouge 540 body oil.
Take a cue from the Duchess of Cambridge; Kate Middleton chose orange blossom and grapefruit candles to fill Westminster Abbey with a beautiful aroma during her wedding to Prince William.
We curated some of the best wedding-appropriate scented candles and room sprays that will add a special touch without overwhelming your senses.
You can keep the scent theme cohesive by choosing one fragrance in various products to be woven throughout the entire wedding or create a multi-layered experience by mixing some of the ones we mentioned. They go perfectly together, and one thing is for sure, your wedding will be the best-scented party in town!
Here are our suggestions:
Not a Perfume Room spray or candle is a fragrance made out of a single element called Cetalox. Usually used in perfumery as a base note, it plays the lead role here... Another advantage of this particular composition is that it is entirely allergen-free. The result is minimalist, unique, pure.
Remarkable People Candle is a champagne toast, a lavish celebration with notes of jasmine, sparkling grapefruit, a pinch of cardamom, and warm calming sandalwood, a spicy citrus delight.
Baccarat Rouge Scented Candle is one of the most sought-after fragrances; born from the encounter of Maison Francis Kurkdjian and Maison Baccarat, the Baccarat Rouge 540 candle combines the magic of nature with legendary craftsmanship. It releases a graphic and highly condensed olfactive signature with a floral, amber, and woody breeze. It is simply a stunner.
Ortensia Candle by Fornasetti is a lush creamy floral with sweet orange blossom, green ivy, and delicate lily of the valley on the bed of sandalwood. Ortensia takes inspiration from the hydrangea shrubs often used for wedding decor that grow in the Via Bazzini garden at the Fornasetti estate in Milan.
Aramara Diffuser by CULTI is a scent of Italian getaway, zesty bergamot and bitter orange on the bed of creamy sandalwood. Transportive and calming, it soothes your senses; the frosted glass bottle serves as a decorative object and will look beautiful in any setting.
Scented Sachets, CULTI also offers scented sachets made out of lovely fabric and can be used to scent homes, small spaces, and even cars. These delicate sachets are designed with corresponding diffuser fragrances and can become perfect gifts for your guests to keep a piece of a scented memory from your beautiful day.
