Find a Wedding-Worthy Scent at BeautySpin

When it comes to planning your wedding — one of the most memorable days of your life — it’s really all about how you remember the occasion. So why not commemorate your special day with a signature scent inextricably linked to the happy affair? Scents are so powerful they can trigger memories of an event many years later, sometimes even throughout your life. Let this attention to detail make an everlasting mark on your sensory memory with the help of a potent potion, perfectly designed for you from

Perfumes and body oils have been “noted” throughout history, but it’s believed that the ancient Egyptians first began using perfumed balms as part of religious ceremonies and later as part of pre-lovemaking aphrodisiacs. A custom-designed perfume for your nuptials is a great way to further tailor the occasion and surprise your groom on your big day.

It goes without saying that your wedding day is perhaps the most exciting day of your life, eliciting a rush of emotions from the moment you begin walking down the aisle, to saying “I do” and dancing through the night. Your brain will automatically make a subconscious connection between the joy of the event and potpourri from that day. 

Since scent is such a powerful reminder of a specific event, don’t just stop at creating your own personal perfume. Waltz in a cloud of your favorite aromatic blend. Discover a room diffuser, candles or mix your own potion for your table linens. Simply dilute one-fourth of your chosen scent with three-fourths distilled, warm water in a spray bottle and mist over table linens and floral arrangements so the blend greets your guest’s senses as they walk into your ethereal reception.

Whatever your choice is, make the search a fun experience that you, your soon-to-be spouse and your guests can enjoy on that day and for years to come.
