Best wedding perfumes to accompany you down the aisle
Planning a wedding is a huge task: deciding on the venue, the celebrant, the dress... Understandably, picking the perfect fragrance to wear on the day might not be high on the to-do list. But becasue our sense of smell is closely linked to our limbic system, the part of the brain responsible for processing memories and emotions, it makes sense to either wear one that is already a key part of your personality or choose one you'll always associate with such a happy occasion.
With such stunning bottles on offer, you know they'll look perfect as part of your pre-wedding photography too.
How to choose? Stick with one that speaks to your style and has uplifting, mood-boosting notes.
