Bridal Perfumes for a Summer Wedding

Bridal Perfumes for a Summer Wedding

A couple of weeks ago we had the privilege of being asked to host a pop up Bridal Perfume Workshop at a wedding event that had been organised by our partners and retail giants Notonthehighstreet.

The event was held in One Marylebone, a very grand former church with sweeping arched ceilings and a dramatic and classic elegance and was open to journalists, press and wedding organisers to see the products and services that Notonthehighstreet partners offered for this exciting and growing market.

The place had been decorated with a wedding theme to showcase the abundance and variety of handmade items including wedding dresses, jewellery, gifts, shoes, wedding decorations, flowers, cards, and anything else you could think of that was related to weddings. In one room there was a mock outdoor wedding set up to showcase handmade decorations for a spring or summer wedding, then there was the invites, the cutlery for the wedding dinner and even a mixology class for the hen party. In the “dressing room” was intricate, handcrafted wedding dresses, along with tiara’s and veils, jewellery and shoes and then there was me, with my stand demonstrating our Bridal Perfume Experience. 

In our pop up workshop I showcased the raw materials that I used to make my perfumes, the process behind making perfume, my inspiration and then finally I blended 3 Bridal Perfume formula’s that I had created exclusively for the event. The 3 Bridal fragrances were created specifically for a Summer Wedding. 2 of the Bridal Perfumes were made for brides and 1 for the groom. None of these fragrances are available for resale.

ZEN

Eau de Cologne

Inspired by the ancient art of Meditation and the exotic smells of the orient Zen starts by opening with top notes of Basil, Bergamot and Lemon before revealing it’s heart – a fresh and spicy accord of Clary Sage, Cardomom, Ginger and Frankincense before settling down into a base of smoky musk and luxurious woods including Cedarwood, Sandalwood and Vetiver.

DAY OF THE ROSE

Eau de Parfum

Day of the Rose is a showstopping Oriental fragrance for the bride who wants to make a dramatic entrance on her wedding day and stay in the mind and heart of her man forever. Opening with a radiant top note of Blood Orange and Bergamot with an intoxicating floral bouquet of white flowers including Tuberose, Rose and Gardenia and a base of Vanilla, Amber and Sandalwood, it is all at once incredibly romantic, mysterious and effortlessly sensual.

BOHEMIAN HONEYMOON

Eau de Toilette

Bohemian Honeymoon is a light floral fragrance – the scent for a bohemian bride with a natural beauty and a care-free and innocent femininity that opens gently with fresh top notes of Linden Blossom and Grapefruit, followed by a floral heart of Neroli, Jasmine and Gardenia with a seductive base of precious musk and exotic woods.

The whole experience was hugely satisfying and though it was a long day, I left feeling inspired and encouraged as we received lots of compliments on all 3 fragrances, and the workshops themselves. As for me, there is nothing more enjoyable then sharing my passion about perfumery with the world!

A FRAGRANCE FOR THE ROMANTICALLY FRAGRANT

With our Bridal Fragrance Service, the Bride can create the perfume of her dreams to match her flower arrangement, her favourite smells, a memory or a feeling to wear on her wedding day, her wedding night or her honeymoon. There really is no better way to commemorate one of the most important days and moments in your life then to capture your memories in scent. And unlike other Bridal Perfume making experiences we invite you to be part of the process from start to finish. We do not use pre mixed bases and we do not offer fragrance combining, so you will have a completely bespoke bridal fragrance that can be as simple or as complicated as you want it to be. And you will know exactly what goes into it as you will be there to create it along with a perfumer who will guide you in the process.

This unique service we also offer as a fun hen party activity, an activity for the bride and groom to do together or just for the groom as we also make bespoke cologne’s. We can come to you or you can come to us, and as always our experiences include personal attention, expert advice plus Prosecco and Cake.

The best fragrance’s for each room in your home

The best fragrance’s for each room in your home

Nowadays when we walk into a fancy department store like The White Company, Abercrombie & Fitch or Hollister to name just a few we immediately get hit with a waft of perfume. And this is no coincidence. Big brands have started employing Scent Marketers as they have realised that in order to make more sales they need to engage people’s most emotional senses: Their sense of smell.

75% of our emotions is linked to smell which is directly linked to pleasure, happiness and general well-being so having a brand fragrance has shown to dramatically increase sales because it enhances their sense of connection with the brand and their values – no wonder they are making it their business to get into the scent business.

When we are at home, this feeling of contentment and well-being is all the more important because we want our homes to smell good, be inviting and personal to us all at the same time.

Here are some suggestions on fragrances to introduce into your home environment to stimulate the senses and connect your environment with the way you’d like it to feel.

Living Room

This is typically the room we relax in, so it’s the room we’d like to be calm and comfortable in. Woody/Spicy fragrances like Sandalwood and Frankincense are good in this environment.

Our Candle F & M has woody hints of Sandalwood and refreshing Citrus along with spicy, anchoring notes of Frankincense & Myrrh. The perfect scent for an environment of relaxation.

Kitchen

We spent a lot of time in the kitchen, and now that more and more people are getting open planned kitchen/dining spaces so that they can entertain their friends it’s even more important that you get the smell of your kitchen right because nobody wants a kitchen that smells bad. The best scents to create a feeling of freshness and mask any unpleasant food odours are citrus or herbal fragrances like Lavender or Bergamot.

Our Candle fragrance Lavender, With Love has the best of both worlds, a fresh, slightly fruity floral note and a refreshing herbaceous scent of Lavender.

Bathroom

Bathrooms are where we get clean so we want them to smell clean. This is best achieved by having a brightening Citrus fragrance, such as Lemon or Grapefruit.

Our Citrus Aromatherapy Candle Grapefruit & Lime looks great in the bathroom and will fill the air with a fresh and uplifting Citrus notes.

Bedroom

Your bedroom is your sanctuary. It is your most personal space and therefore is the area in which your personality should really shine. It is also the most sensual space in the home so natural aphrodisiac scents like Rose and Jasmine should feature boldly. Or if you really want to seduce someone then a oriental fragrance will do that nicely.

Our Aromatherapy Candle Rose-Geranium & Jasmine is a great place to start but if you prefer a fragrance with more dark, sexy, mysterious notes then our luxurious Candle fragrance Indian Mistress of the Night, with spicy notes of Ginger and floral notes of Tuberose really set the mood.

Or, if you’re looking for a more Bespoke Fragrance to compliment your rooms and yourself, then why don’t you try our Bespoke Candle Service where you can get a signature scent created especially for yourself or give it as a extra special gift.

So, get yourself and your home smelling the way you want!
