How to Find the Right Wedding Day Fragrance for YouJuly 07, 2022
When you think of bridal beauty, the first thing that comes to mind is likely your hair and makeup. Whether you’ve been watching countless makeup tutorials and trying out formal hairstyles yourself or are hiring a professional for your wedding day, every little detail counts. But just as important as hair and makeup is the fragrance you decide to wear. Not only will your perfume make an impact at your wedding, it will be something you can spray on for years to come to remind yourself of your big day.
So, are you in love with classic floral scents, or do you prefer something warm and sensual? Is your wedding outdoors, or in a grand venue? If you’re looking for fragrance suggestions for any type of wedding, keep reading.

A slinky, curve-hugging wedding dress calls for an equally sensual scent. Myth combines jasmine petals and tiger orchid with the warmth of musk and white cedarwood. The fragrance itself is sexy — so is the fact that it’s vegan and cruelty-free.
