A special scent for your special day

Sure, wearing fragrances isn’t rocket science - a quick spritz and you’re off. However, for the big day, you're going to want to make sure it lingers all day and that it's a scent you'll want to forever associate with your wedding.  Head of brand at The Fragrance Shop, Athina Macpherson, reveals all...

Bride spraying perfume on to her wrist BACK OF YOUR HANDS
"When spraying onto your skin, it can be a natural instinct to want to rub it in, especially if you spray too close to the skin. Avoid this by spraying the back of your hands lightly and allowing the scent to dry and absorb naturally. This will also avoid rubbing off onto your clothes.”

IN YOUR HAIR
“Spraying on your hair means that you’re not going to block the scent from wearing clothes. If you’re likely to sweat, it also takes out this obstacle, allowing for fresh smelling scents all day long.”

BEHIND YOUR KNEES
“Fragrance can last longer in those hot spots such as behind your knees which is perfect when you’re wearing a dress or shorts. The heat intensifies the notes in your fragrance so there’s no need to top up on your spray throughout the day.”

DOWN YOUR BACK
“We tend to focus our spray on our fronts – the neck, chest and wrists, but spraying your fragrance on your back not only leaves a gorgeous trail behind you, it diffuses into your clothes and on your skin for a lasting effect.”

UNDER YOUR ARMS
“We tend to focus our spray on our fronts – the neck, chest and wrists, but spraying your fragrance on your back not only leaves a gorgeous trail behind you, it diffuses into your clothes and on your skin for a lasting effect.”
