    Default Help me pick out a fragrance to wear for my 25th anniversary

    Tomorrow is my 25th wedding anniversary! Hubby and I are going out to a romantic Italian restaraunt. Peek at my wardrobe and help me choose something special to wear that won't interfere with Italian cuisine

    Since you're going for Italian, why not DOLCE VITA! Congratulations on 25 years - you deserve a celebration!

    Happy 25th Anniversary!

    I tend to like citrusy or fruity scents with Italian food. These would all work, you have a lovely wardrobe.

    Light Blue, JM Amber & Ginger, Dolce Vita, Rive Gauche and Eau des Merveilles.

    (Dolce Vita was my 1st thought, too, ubu.)

    If it were me, I would pick something like Hermessence Ambre Narguile. Soft, a little foody, and not an overpowering frag to interfere with food tastes and smells. Plus, he'll have to come close to smell it

    Congratulations!

    I have no suggestions scent-wise, I believe you'll know intuitively what to pick for such a special occasion. Have a wonderful time!

    Congratulations to you and Mr. tdi!!! You have a lot of wonderful-sounding fragrances, many that I haven't tried yet. Rochas Femme and Parfum Sacre sound kinda romantic to me. Have fun, whatever you choose!

    Tdi, scent sister, lots of congratulations to you and DH! :wave:
    Dolce Vita is a truly marvelous suggestion....otherwise you could wear one of your Goutals, Grand Amour or Quel Amour! .... just for the meaning of the name
    After 25 years, it just HAS to be love!

    Congratulations! We had our 25th last August and I wore Nirmala on that occasion.
    Looking at your vast wardrobe I think your good taste will tell you which of your scents
    is appropriate. Personally I'd choose Le Parfum de Therese from your list, but that's just me!
    Have a great meal anyway, and here's to the next 25 years.

    Wow, what a fabulous wardrobe you have! It must be incredibly difficult to pick a SotD. Congratulations on your 25th wedding anniversary, Tdi! Dolce Vita sounds like a lovely choice.

    Thanks for all the suggestions. I think I will wear Dolce Vita. We were supposed to go to New Orleans ( my all time favorite city) but Hubby changed plans and now we are going to South Carolina for a Joshua Bell concert, then to Atlanta (shopping? is he crazy) and a Pink Floyd Laser show at the Fox Theater. Then we are heading to Asheville NC ( another of my favorite places) to stay in our favorite bed and breakfast (1900 Inn at Monford) visit the spa at the Grove Park Inn and go to the Biltmore! So.....I will have plenty of opportunity to wear some of Hubbies favorites (Bellodgia being is all time favorite of my because I wore it on our wedding day.)

    Wow! What a schedule! Sounds fantastic ... congratulations!

    I reckon you'd smell fabulous in Vol de Nuit Evasion. Or the glorious Femme, for a spot of *romance* after all your activities.

    Whatever you wear, I'm sure you'll wear it well!

    Tdi, it sounds like you've got your scent choices under control (GREAT recommendations, too, everyone!), and I hope you and your DH enjoy every second of what sounds like a truly marvelous anniversary celebration/adventure. Here's to 125 more years of wedded bliss!
    It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    Congratulations, tdi! I'm late to the thread, but if you do check in my thoughts for your celebration include wearing a touch of Coco. Coco and your blessed marriage were born 25 years ago. It is a stunner too.

    Many happy and healthy returns of the day!

    Congratulations to Mrs. and Mr. tdi. The Biltmore? That's romantic. May I suggest packing some Black Cashmere to complement your passions? Best wishes for continued happiness.

    tdi ~ sounds like you two are in for a second honeymoon (or maybe 3rd, 4th, heck, I don't know!)
    Last time I was at the FOX, my hubby and I weren't married yet...we saw Iggy Pop and The Pretenders! Have a ball!

    Thanks for all of the well wishes! In many ways it seems impossible that we have been married that long but then we do have a 24 year old son I always tell my husband that we have to stay married because no one else would be able to live with either of us. We both have VERY strong personalities but we have managed to work around that miraculously.

    Happy 25th!!!
    I have no fragrance advice just wanted to send good wishes.
    I'd say have fun but it sounds like that is covered, too.
