The Boho Wedding

Egle Laukyte

Estée Lauder Beautiful Belle,
The notes: Rose petals, lychee, pear blossom, orange flower, gardenia, tuberose petals, ambrox, marzipan musk

Not your typical women's fragrance. It's an exquisite mix of floral and oriental scents, beautifully combined to reflect the non-traditional bride. She's carefree, feminine and bohemian – with just a little rebellion thrown in.

Fracas by Robert Piguet
The notes: Bulgarian rose, tuberose, orange flower, sandalwood

Tuberose lovers who favour a traditional scent with a playful touch. Fracas, as anyone in-the-know will tell you, is the ultimate tuberose scent. It is chic, luxurious, timeless, sweet, feminine, but, surprisingly, also really sexy.

The Registry Wedding

Rachel Levine

A Lilac A Day by Vilhelm Parfumerie
The notes: Lilac, Egyptian jasmine, Turkish Rose

Reminding you just how amazing lilacs are. Imagine the sensational scent that floats under your nose when you walk into a florist. Then think of that bottled and intensify it. This is the result. Pick up a posey of lilacs and pair with an effortlessly lovely registry outfit. Feminine and seductive, be warned: your groom will be intoxicated.

The destination wedding

Bernardo Gouveia

Fleur d’Oranger 27 by Le Labo
The notes: Orange blossom, lemon, musk, bergamot, petit grain

This perfume from Le Labo is typically special. It’s a fundamentally floral scent – made with natural and extremely rare Orange Blossom. It took over 3 years to compose. The citrus zing of lemon and bergamot give this light-as-air fragrance a sunny oomph. You’ll be the beautiful breeze in the warm sunshine as you say your vows.

The Garden Wedding

Gabrielle McMillan

Mandrine by Jo Loves
The notes: Bitter orange, bergamot, lemon leaf, pettigrain, thyme, crushed Spices

When this fragrance launched, it was the most talked about and much-loved perfume among beauty editors. Not sweet, nor too citrusy, it’s clean, crisp, cool and perfect for a garden celebration that’s already filled with the scent of flowers. A zesty, lively classic you’re destined to fall in love with.

The Beach Wedding

Rachel Movitz

Hermés Eau des Merveilles Bleue
The notes: mineral, mint, amber, patchouli

The latest scent from French Fashion House Hermés is a breath of fresh, ocean-inspired air. Sea spray, salty pebbles, sparkling water in the sunshine – all somehow evoked by this sparkling fragrance. Not a flower in sight.

The Classic Wedding

AO Media

Maison Francis Kurkdjian À La Rose
The notes: Damascena rose, centifolia rose, pear, lychee, magnolia blossom, violet and cedarwood

"This is my tribute to femininity," says Francis Kurkdjian. It's light, delicate, floral and ever-so-slightly powdery. Not your old-fashioned rose fragrance, but perfect for an elegant day with lots of classic touches – from the teardrop bouquet and veil to a white Rolls Royce.

The At-Home Wedding

Richard Greenly

“A Tribute To Edith” by Parterre
The notes: Geranium, rhubarb, rose geranium, whisky, davana, centifolia rose, rose de mai, yarrow, benzoin, patchouli, sandalwood

Each and every limited-edition bottle of this floral fragrance is made on a 50-acre estate dedicated to aromatic plants. Unusual species are cultivated by a skilled botanical team exclusively for Parterre's scents. It seems unbelievably fitting to wear something ‘homegrown’ (and cultivated with so much love) at your own wedding at home. A very special fragrance for your big day.

The Autumn Wedding

Celebes Wood by Alberto Morillas (launching in September)
The notes: bergamot, cardamom, geranium, cinnamon, cistus, white pepper, tonka bean, styrax, patchouli, Madagascar vanilla, musk

This is perfume icon Alberto Morillas' latest creation. Morillas is behind some of the most successful perfumes ever, including Calvin Klein's CK One and Kenzo's Flower. Combining woods and spices, with just a hint of something floral, Celebes Wood is strikingly autumnal. And if you get frustrated with perfumes losing their potency as the day gets on, this one won't let you down! Its quality is abundantly clear.

The Rustic Wedding

Gypsy Water by Byredo
The notes: Bergamot, lemon, pepper, juniper, amber, vanilla and sandalwood

Not only do they have great names (and smell divine), but you can also buy an 'unnamed' fragrance from Byredo and, instead, choose one for it yourself (your wedding date, perhaps?). Gypsy Water is a dreamy scent with a dark side, great for brides who love deeper, more unusual fragrances.

The Winter Wedding

Robin Proctor Photography

Jasmine Sambac & Marigold Cologne by Jo Malone
The notes: Jasmine sambac, marigold, ylang ylang, benzoin resin, vanilla, amber

A sensual scent that's elegant, rich and slightly exotic. This warm fragrance contains the Queen of Jasmine – Jasmine Sambac, sourced from India and captured in a bottle. It’s luxuriant – perfect alongside a cold winter’s day, wood panelling, plush velvet, candlelight and champagne.

The Church Wedding

Gabrielle by Chanel
The notes: Jasmine, ylang-ylang, orange blossom, grasse tuberose

Did you know Gabrielle was the legendary designer's real first name? Exotic yet fruity and floral with a lively sparkling edge, Chanel’s fabulously feminine Gabrielle is a fragrance for confident brides wishing to make a real statement. This is a scent to be worn intensely and can be re-applied as often as the bride likes.
