7 Sensual Ways to Enjoy Scent as a Bride

blend1

Our guest blogger, BLEND Custom Parfum, offers up their best secrets on the power of scent for your wedding day!

Scent is a subliminal way to create a lasting impression. It has the power to transport us to a place in time or set the stage to create fresh new memories. We invite you to wander back to that wondrous place where you met your partner, to recall a favorite nickname or a person who has been particularly influential in your life. Next, we’ll guide you in designing a fragrance to match this personal sensory footprint.   

blend

Here are some great ways to bring scent into your life:

  • Select A Fragrance to Fit: Consider your complexion, lifestyle, and fashion sense in pairing a fragrance with your signature style. It’s part of your personal statement. Consider your wedding dress, colors, venue & time of the event when selecting a scent.
  • Understanding the Fragrance Triangle: One of the things we hear a lot is: “I loved it, I bought it and it changed.” Fragrance is made in three parts:  base, heart and top notes. So, please keep in mind it is designed to change.  Base notes last 4 to 6 hours, heart notes 2 to 4 hours and top notes 20 – 30 minutes.  Let it dry down for the best fit.
  • How did you learn to apply fragrance? I remember my Mom and her routine “toilette” with her favorite scents: Yves St Laurent and Air de Temps. Dab a little behind your ears, on your décolletage, pulse points, or hair. Or, follow Coco Chanel’s advice & place your signature scent wherever you wish to be kissed. 
  • Ready? Set? Spray! As a bride, we recommend you apply your favorite scent 2 to 3 hours before your wedding, so it will be in the heart or the pretty part of the blend.
  • Layer, Layer, Layer. The number one way to make an impact with fragrance is by showering or taking a bubble bath with  your signature product, next slather on a luxurious body cream and finally spritz your signature fragrance on your secret spots.
  • Entertain your Bridal Party: Gift a personal scent or surprise your bridesmaids with a sensual party at Blend’s Buckhead atelier. Or, pack us in your suitcase for your bridal destination event.  
  • Create Custom Favors and Scent cards: Carry your theme through and design custom favors to coordinate with your bridal theme and colors.
