– Make it symbolic Many brides prefer for their special scent to have a symbolic meaning. For example if you love the beach and breezyscents, you might want to stick with something with notes of bergamot, lime, coconut & sea salt. If you love nature and the mountains, leaning towards something with herbaly notes of lavender, pine & sandalwood would be perfect. You could even tie your signature scent in with the floral and color arrangements for your wedding. For example, you could harmonize your soft pastel palette with something with light floral scents or darker palettes with something more rich and bold.
– Suit your body chemistry and surroundings Everyone has a different skin pH, this is why perfumes will never smell the exact same on two different people. This is also why you want to apply your scent to pulse points such as your neck, your wrist or inside of your elbows; areas that naturally emit more heat and uncover the true scent on your skin. You may also want to choose something in line with the ambiance of your wedding, such as something light and airy for a daytime wedding versus something more dark and rich for an evening wedding.

Not only that, but it is important to feel comfortable and powerful in your signature fragrance.
