Choosing a fragrance is sort of a big deal. It’s usually a big purchase (they’re certainly not cheap), it’s super personal to you, and there are so many to choose from. I don’t regularly change the perfumes I wear, rotating about 5 for everyday wear, special occasions, vacations, etc. so I knew it was time to go for something different when I was thinking about the fragrance I would wear on our wedding day. I know what I like, so I knew I wouldn’t spend hours and hours deciding between a few, it was just testing out what a couple of shops had on offer before looking online for the most reasonable prices. I thought I’d share with you some of those which I thought would’ve been totally appropriate for a wedding, and show you which one I went with. I can’t wait to spend the few days around the wedding wearing this, so that when I use it in the future all those special memories will come flooding back. There are so many fragrances which evoke memories for me now, so it seems fitting that my wedding day would be the same.
