Memories in a bottle…
Gliding down the aisle, seemingly walking on air, the bride’s friends and family are overcome with feelings of joy and happiness. Ethereal beauty is enhanced by the special scent she wears on this magical day, so choose your fragrance carefully. Everyone, especially the lucky groom, will remember it.
Tarocco, the sweetest of all blood orange varieties is the inspiration for Diptyque’s latest citrus fragrance, L’eau de Tarocco. For the bride (or anyone) who doesn’t want something cloying, the citrus notes here are a refreshing blend of juicy grapefruit, some bitter orange, cinnamon, a hint of Bulgarian rose and lastly a soupcon of saffron for sex appeal. With no one dominant note, the blend is an ode to summer romance.

The name says it all. It’s how you want to look and feel and smell on this day. Pretty, by Elizabeth Arden is a flirty melange of florals and fruits nestled comfortably in serene woods. Opening notes of peach and orange blossom lead us to a garden of white peony, star jasmine, pink iris and the unique petalia. And the final notes of musk, jacaranda wood and creamy amber round it out to leave an alluring impression of comforting warmth.

A beautiful bouquet elicits ohhh’s and ahhh’s, and so will the subtle and floral Fleur d’amour by Sylvie Beljanski, who created this fragrance with perfumer Jean Pierre Subrenet. Spray it on just before you take that magical walk down the aisle and treat your guests to opening notes of sweet bergamot and bourgeons de cassis. By the time you’ve finished your “I Do’s”, notes of Moroccan jasmine, lily of the valley, pink peony and Bulgarian rose will escort you and your new groom back up the aisle. Dance the night away enveloped with heady notes of white amber, Australian sandalwood and a drop of sweetness with vanilla from Madagascar.
This flower of love fragrance spreads the love with others too. For each bottle bought, a $5.00 donation will be made to cancer research.
