7 Winter Wedding Fragrances

Posted: Jun 19 2015

Planning a wedding is an exciting but can be a stressful time and we know a winter wedding is a whole set of different priorities for a bride-to-be. Aside from keeping warm, there is also the not-so-crucial matter of fragrance to think about too. As the seasons change so do our taste in scent and while some perfumes smell like a summer holiday, others evoke memories of cosy, autumn evenings. 

So, what type of perfume should winter brides look for? We suggest avoiding citrus scents. Instead, stick to oriental, spicy fragrances that are woodsy, ambery and resinous. 

And if amber isn't your thing? Foody scents such as vanilla, nut and quince are often popular in winter fragrances, while tuberose and lily are the dominant florals.

However - if you're experimenting with something new, the most important thing is to make sure you and your husband-to-be actually like it.

Tip: Wear it a few times before the wedding on stress free days to make sure you are comfortable in the scent. Shop without your partner or friends, who have different tastes to you.

Here's our pick of the best fragrances for winter weddings:

1. j'adore Dior
