    I have heard that tradition - however, our wedding is going to be a little untraditional, so ... also, MrLippie doesn't really like the scent of neroli, so, it's difficult!

    Have you ever heard of the tradition that Neroli is considered highly auspicious for a wedding day? I would recommend a perfume that has neroli as a prominent note!

    Take your time!

    Ormonde Men is a very good option, from my bachelor point of view...

    For her, Iris Nobile, or

    Both in Bandit or both Diorella...

    Yes, that is absolutely my plan - whatever I end up wearing! Thank you for the tip xx

    Promqueen: If it's on eBay, does that suggest that Panther Eau Legere by Cartier has been discontinued? Sounds very lovely though, I shall definitely investigate, thank you!

    We had originally planned on matching wedding rings, but that fell through, matching fragrances might be a good idea, if only MrL liked more of MY fragrances!

I totally agree with your list of ground rules, and, while not knowing either your or your fiance, love your choices. So enjoy your wedding day and whatever perfumes you decide to wear. All the best!
    Thank you for a lovely comment, Zhi. How great of your store to let you know that they were discontinuing!

    No, no, thank you! I'm trying, very hard, not to turn into a total "Bridezilla", I can see how it would be very easy to do though!

    Panthere eau Legere by Cartier is tough to beat...it is a feminine and elegant fougere. Each time I wear it, everyone says "WHAT are you wearing?" It smells clean and rich...but not soapy. I don't see it listed to review on Basenotes, but you can find a bottle on EBay for not too much..the juice is green. Congratulations and good luck

    Thanks, D. It's the most fun I've had writing anything in quite a while!

    Naturally, once I've decided, I'll let you know. Currently, the race is still wide open ...

    A terrifically enjoyable read, thank you! :-D

    I'm afraid I can't offer any wise suggestions, except to say that I think Timbuktu and Safran Troublant would be absolutely superb choices. They're two particular favourites of mine, and I'm sure they'd compliment each other really well.

    Will you let us know what you decide in the end?
