Whether you plan to float down the aisle wearing your favourite perfume or fancy trying something new, we've got plenty of ways to perfume your wedding day and deliver you down the aisle with a scent to remember.

Wedding Perfume Idea #1: Follow in Mum's Footsteps

Romantic? Yes. Nostalgic? Definitely. Giving a nod to your mum's wedding day by choosing to wear the same fragrance she walked down the aisle in is a lovely twist on something 'old' and 'borrowed'. Misting her choice of wedding perfume in the air above your veil is a lovely touch, plus a subtle way to mark your special day.

Popular mum–loved classics:

Chanel No.5 Eau de Parfum
Cacharel Anais Anais
Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche

Wedding Perfume Idea #2: Complement Your Bouquet

If you love floral perfume, why not choose your wedding day fragrance to complement your bouquet or bridal flower theme? With white flowers big in both traditional perfumery and wedding day floral arrangements, you have an abundance of choices. Equally, other floral notes may appeal. And don't rule out looking further a field to scented body lotions to scent your day – we've been blown away by the exquisite scent of Korres Jasmine Body Butter; an absolute must for jasmine fans.

Floral finds:

For Iris fans: Prada infusion d'Iris Eau de Parfum.
For rose lovers: Paul Smith Rose Eau de Parfum.
White flowers: Christian Dior j'adore l'absolu Eau de Parfum.
Multiple floral notes: Estee Lauder Beautiful Eau de Parfum – with lily of the valley, tuberose, jasmine, ylang ylang.

Wedding Perfume Idea #3: Layer Your Fragrance

Planning to stick with your favourite scent for your wedding day? Consider mixing up the way you wear it. Fragrance experts suggest a layering technique that starts with scented shower gel, then body lotion/cream, and finishes with your perfume or Eau de Toilette, for an enduring scent that permeates throughout the day.

Alternative Ways to Wear:

Great 'layering' buys: Chloe Body Lotion, Lancome Magnifique Shower Gel, Dolce & Gabbana The One Body Lotion.
Scent your hair: Chanel Coco Mademoiselle Fresh Hair Mist.

And for the groom...

Aftershave? Cologne? Surprise him with a wedding day present you'll enjoy too, with these new men's fragrances:

  1. Gucci by Gucci Pour Homme
  2. Dunhill Black
  3. Quiksilver For Men
  4. Hugo Boss Hugo Element Eau de Toilette
