Bridal Perfumes for a Summer Wedding

Bridal Perfumes for a Summer Wedding

pexels-photo-359165

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.

This week we’ve been featured on a wonderful blog called Rules of a Lady, cool name huh?!

Rules of a Lady is a young, fashion forward lifestyle blog created by Italian blogger Silvia Cavagnini. She is big into fashion, lifestyle, interior design and infact anything beautiful and unusual and she contacted me recently about doing a collaboration with her. She looks for products that she really likes on websites such as Etsy (where she found me), and then she contacts companies about doing a feature on them. I just happened to be one of the lucky ones. She was particularly taken with my Coconut & Musk Soy candle and my RoseGold Reed Diffuser. A few weeks ago I sent her my very favourite soy candle Apple Blossom and Pear and my Luxury Grapefruit Bath Salts to review and she took a picture of it and left a review here:

Kisanii Festival

Kisanii Festival

Kisanii

I have finished my soap favors for the Kisanii festival in October!

In the end I made 2 types of soap: Meadowfoam & Neroli Rebatched Soap and Cocoa Butter & Rose Soap. I also made 2 types of solid lotion bar: Rose & Lavender Solid Lotion Bar and Vanilla & Ylang Ylang Solid Lotion Bar, and some Travel Candles. I’m really happy with them and think that people will really like them too!

My cousin who is organising the event told me last night that it has been postponed due to a sponsorship and venue issues, so it won’t be happening in October anymore but later on in the year or mid next year so I’ve promised her that I’ll save them for her to use at another event instead. It’s a bit of a shame but at least they won’t be going to waste.

The soaps are in the process of being cured so I haven’t had a chance to use them yet but I’m very much looking forward to sampling them. According to the Soap Calculator they both have some pretty good properties!

Now that I’ve done a bit more soapmaking I’m much more comfortable (though not completely comfortable you understand!), about doing more. I’m feeling much more adventurous and it IS exciting coming up with new recipes and creating new fragrances – it’s also what I do best!
