    Default What was/would be your wedding fragrance?

    Inspired by Throwbookatface's recent thread and the fact I'm getting married in a few months;

    If you are married, what scent did you wear for your wedding day, and if you aren't what scent would you choose?

    I haven't decided yet for my wedding day. Edition blanche and Dior homme cologne are strong contenders at the moment.

    Congratulations on your upcoming wedding!

    If I were to get married today, I would wear Aventus, since I love it, and it's my wife's favorite. When I did marry her 10 years ago (or has it been 11? hmmm...) I don't have any idea what I wore. I am guessing either some body spray of some sort - or nothing.
    Seasonal favorites:

    1. Creed - Spice & Wood
    2. Creed - Aventus
    3. Tom Ford - Grey Vetiver
    4. Xerjoff - Fars
    5. Dior - Vetiver
    6. Creed - Green Valley
    7. Clive Christian - 1872 for Men
    8. by Kilian - Straight to Heaven
    9. The Different Company - De Bachmakov
    10. Creed - Royal Scottish Lavender

    I wore Balafre by Lancome on my wedding day - a long time ago.

    I will wear Dior Vetiver or this batch of perfume extrait I made that my gf adores most likely when I get married to my girlfriend, some time down the road.

    Unmarried and never was married before, so unsure whether my opinion counts- but my ideal fragrance for this occasion would most likely Armani Eau pour Homme.

    First, congrats, Sol Invictus!

    On my church wedding four years ago, I wore Platinum Egoiste. I'd definitely wear something else when my wife and I renew our vows.

    If you're someone like Grace Kelly or if you have married/are marrying someone like Grace Kelly it'd be Creed's Fleurissimo.

    I'd wear something flowery now, as that is what Mr. Fantastic likes best.
    I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.

    I hated perfume and people who wore it so I was scent free.
    Doing it again, I'm not sure. I got married at a world heritage listed Shinto shrine in Kyoto in fall when the autumn colors were at their peak, so something respectful of the setting and time that wouldn't try to become the center of attention. Maybe a light application of Tam Dao. Not CdG's Kyoto because of the association with Buddhism and therefore death and funerals in Japan.

    First of all, congratulations!

    I wore Dolce and Gabbana Pour Homme (vintage) because it was one of my signature scents at the time I first my wife. Interestingly enough my wife wore Dolce and Gabbana Light Blue (as her "something Blue") on our wedding. This was 9 years ago this month.

    I have a decant of Creed Windsor that I rarely wear. I'd certainly break it out for this occasion.

    I held a poll for my website too... http://www.basenotes.net/threads/364...coming-wedding

    But I ignored the result and in the end just went with Aventus. I have to say - I'd never be able to justify wearing Aventus looking back. As a BN / perfume enthusiast, I could never be pleased with any one scent I suppose, especially given that we are constantly changing our wardrobes.

    Edition Blanche? Some guys have watched too much Robes08
    I'd personally pick something like Aqua Fahrenheit, Bvlgari Man Extreme, Prada Luna Rossa or something like Armani Attitude if it was in the winter.

    I, too, wore Edition 24 years ago and would happily wear it again--it is my SOTD, as it happens. My wife wore C&S's Neroli. I would wear something classic enough not ever to get discontinued. I think that Eau Sauvage would be a great wedding scent or GIT or Chanel Pour Monsieur. A bridegroom should smell good but always remember that he is not the star of the show.

    Congrats to the OP.

    Wife and I got married in August 2012 and she requested that I wear Creed Windsor while she wore Creed Royal Ceylan. I actually wanted to wear Chanel Allure Edition Blanche since we were in Jamaica when we got married.

    That's a pretty classy combination - nice!

    I've never smelled Royal Ceylan, but always wanted to.

    It was Creed Vetiver (1948).

    It was discontinued shortly after I got married, which is a shame, as it's meant that in recent years I haven't worn it nearly as much as I used to...

    Right now, it'd likely be Amouage Reflection. If not, it would likely be something else from Amouage. MAYBE Beloved, or something from By Killian.

    I wore Gianfranco Ferre Pour Homme back in July of 1991. Brown/Black Bottle, Orange/Bronze Glass.

    Today, hmmmm...I'd probably go with Terre d'Hermes.

    Interesting that both of these scents have a sort of bitter orange component.
