    Default What to wear for my upcoming wedding?

    Hi everyone,

    Well it's the news I've been waiting for, but I'm happy to announce that my time has come

    Thing is, which is the best fragrance to wear on my wedding day from those currently in my wardrobe? Or are there others that I should be looking to buy?

    From what I gather, she likes citrus/woody scents and wears Chanel's Chance Eau Fraische (green bottle) herself. We will be indoors for the bg day and it will be in the UK towards the end of August, where the weather can be up and down.

    Your suggestions please (by voting) and justifications where possible!!

    Thanks, Ivan!!

    Yes, she likes the Amouage and just about all my Creeds. She also likes the TdH Parfum...

    I'd recommend any of the following scents: Creed GIT, ADP Colonia Original or TDH Parfum.

    Congrats! And from those options, I'd go with the Amouage!

    "Whatever your fiance wants" is a time honored and appropriate answer.

    If she leaves it to you, I personally would pick something you've never worn before (but smelled and tested -- no blind wearings). Weddings are special days.

    Chergui is the most often mentioned wedding scent, and it's not in your wardrobe. From the ones in your wardrobe, I'd avoid the light neroli-dominated scents and go with GIT.

    Congratulations. I've never been married and am still looking for the right one.
    Current Top Five:

    1. Creed Green Irish Tweed
    2. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
    4. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
    5. Creed Original Vetiver

    Wow, thanks for that, barclay. Some good discussion there and I for one have never owned a S&L scent so that may be one to investigate soon enough!

    Likewise!! But keep at it and don't ever get depressed over it. That's my advice. It will happen when you least expect it to - so many people told me that and I never believed them, but it is true!!

    First I want to say CONGRATULATIONS! My pick was Égoïste, but ultimately it would be her favorite on you, that would be the best pick

    I voted Green Irish Tweed (my 2nd place vote would've been for Epic Man) since it sounds like you both really like it.

    Congrats, rum!

    Firstly Congratulations!!

    Secondly La Nuit or DHI would have been my choices out of my current wardrobe. Creed's Bois du portugal would be a good option and GIT would be second to it.

    P.S. Leave some cake for me please :O

    It's hard to say. Can you drop some hints as to which she'd really like you to wear? I think maybe Epic Man would be nice otherwise.

    Congratulations! If it's all the same to her, I would go with GIT. Not my favorite out of the bunch necessarily, but the right fragrance for that occasion IMO.

    My advice? Choose the scent that smells the most special to you. That being said, I voted for GIT because, as dougczar said, it seems like it best fits the occasion.

    Congratulations ! you should pick something you really like not what people recommend for you , it is a really special day ! I would buy a new fragrance and only wear it for the first time on your wedding day , everytime you wear it , you will have a strong reminder of your wedding day . The memory of a fragrance can be very powerful , I sure we can all recall the first time we smelt a favourite scent or how the smell of a fresh cut lawn can bring back childhood memories !! Good Luck !

    Go for something that lasts with a bit of strength. Aventus or Egoiste should do the trick. I'm not sure that the ADP ones or the other Creeds would.

    Thanks for all the suggestions guys - keep them coming and do vote if you haven't already done so!

    As for going for what I like, well, I like all my scents although I may be doing a quick re-jig soon. I think she is also quite keen on most of my fragrances.

    Chanel Egoiste, although there is also the option of buying a new scent just for you wedding - after all, you don't wear your day-today clothes to your own wedding, so why not make it a special occasion scent-wise as well.
