    Default Do You Remember Your Wedding Fragrance?

    I wasn't helplessly entwined in fragrances then,so, I don't have one. I find it very sweet when I hear people say "That was my wedding fragrance!" and makes me warm inside, so, tell me what it was. If you don't remember or plan to marry what would you have liked it to be or like it to be?

    Best Regards

    Mmmmm can't remember exactly.

    I recall my wife buying me Prada Amber pour Homme but I didn't like it much and bought myself something else.

    I think I just put on pure oud oil and fumigated myself oud wood.

    Mine was Creed Vetiver, and my wife wore Shalimar.

    I don't remember being all that aware of my Vetiver (chosen because I was wearing it the first time I met my wife, and because I loved it), but have a very clear memory of the wonderful smell of Shalimar when my wife stood beside me in the church.

    I also remember that, in their excitement, both my parents had forgotten to apply any fragrance- both ended up wearing Acqua di Parma which I'd packed in my honeymoon suitcase!

    Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Ylang-Vanille. I gave that bottle away, but I still have my spray of orange blossoms from my lapel pressed and stashed somewhere, and the cream suit I wore. B-belle and I were married in Florida in February and it was such a beautiful time of year. Later, I bought Terracotta Voile d'Ete and realized it was the same fragrance, with carnation added - both Jean-Paul Guerlain creations, so I must still like that fragrance. I don't know why I gave it away. Some kind of OCD purge mood probably. I believe Ylang-Vanille is very hard to find now. I wonder what fragrance I'd wear if we did it again?

    Oh, I remember it like it was just yesterday! I was married two years ago, November 19th, right at twilight in a courtyard here in the French Quarter, in Chanel Coco, the same vintage parfum and flourish of edp (and body cream!) I was wearing when I met my husband ten years prior. I also happened to be wearing Coco when he proposed, so although I gave a few others some thought, I couldn't imagine wearing any other fragrance to marry him.

    I think I was wearing Coco Chanel too. I don't think I had managed to find the Yendi Capucci perfume then. I would wear that for a wedding now.... but I don't plan on getting rid of my OH in a hurry.... I will wear it for our 20th wedding anniversary instead next month.

    Coco or Yendi, either way you smelled gorgeous!

    That is a great story! Thanks for sharing.

    And Mrs. E, we remember the days prior to your wedding like it was yesterday You were so sweet and excited, and I believe you even asked us what you should wear. I think I voted for Bois des Iles or Coromandel, but in the end, your Coco was the very best choice

    I married in '93, and while I can't remember exactly, thinking back to the bottles I had around then it probably would have been either L'Air du Temps, Samsara or Amarige. If I was a betting person I'd put money on Amarige, since I wore that quite a bit when it first came out (early 90s I think?). Wouldn't wear it now, would probably go for a Chanel.

    I'm not sure what I'd wear if we did it again. I love orange blossom, but it would depend on the season and location.

    Evangeline, your wedding sounds so romantic!

    Mumsy, twenty years next month! Where did the time go? Our tenth anniversary will be February next year. That ten years really flew by. But when I compare photos from then to now...ack!

    That's right - I'm touched that you remember! It had been quite a signature of mine, so I kept thinking that I needed something different to make it more special, but then I realized there simply wasn't anything more special to me than Coco. It was perfect, and I'd absolutely choose it again. (Actually, I did wear Coromandel for a few of the pre-wedding events and festivities, so it's got its own special place among those memories.)

    lt was 1990, & l wore Anais Anais. We divorced in 2005 however, so although l still think it's a great perfume, for me it was very much of its time.

    lf l were to do it again, l would choose Tuberose Gardenia or Carnal Flower, l think. My bf & l are very commited to one another, but as divorcees we are both a bit shy of marriage for the moment. lf we were to get hitched, he would probably want me to wear Allure, which he loves on me, or lntense Tiare, which l was wearing when we met.

    It was only in April this year, so it's still quite fresh. Chanel No.19 EDP i had a sample, and it was the perfect choice for me that day.

    YSL Jazz (vintage)
    This bottle was running low when my mother gave it to me because my dad only wears coast soap and brut deodorant. I only wore it on special occassions like prom and first dates. I had others at the time, but had to go with the Jazz because of the occassion.

    Ehem... I got married in '86 and I wore Opium. I had a traditional Japanese wedding, so had to wear layers of kimono... very heavy and because the temperature in LA was close to 80F, I was steaming under it. The scent went well, I think, with the oriental theme.

    I was wearing Jicky EDP and she was wearing Dior Addict, the same scent she was wearing back when we first met. It was her signature for years and years before I got her to expand a bit, but she still loves it!

    (PS, I'm getting her Dior Dune, Creed Silver Mountain Water, and possibly Guerlain Samsara for Xmas! Love to see her tastes expanding.)
