Throughout history no man has ever been able to resist a beautiful woman. Combine a woman’s beauty with an irresistible scent, and you have the makings of an indomitable force of nature. As a bride you are that irresistible woman who has captured the heart of your beloved, the man who just can’t seem to live without you.
Being a lover of perfumes, it is my personal belief that every bride should find a signature scent that makes her essence stand above the rest, especially on her wedding day, and have the groom groveling at her feet and ready to meet her every desire.
A scent this powerful has its origins in distant lands where beauty and nature collide. Perfumers have the daunting task of composing scents that capture our emotions, drive us wild with passion, and floods our minds with memories of stolen kisses and first loves.
So for brides, it is of the utmost importance to select a scent that capsulate her energy, nuances, working harmoniously to draw her beloved closer to her. We searched in the distant lands of France and London to find such fragrances and found two contenders: Laboratory Perfumes and Paul Emilien, both of whom are experts and revered perfumers.
Gorse – A crisp fragrance that transports the wearer to sun-kissed heathlands along the coast. Opening with invigorating top note of citrus, and of course, the delightful coconut hit of the gorse flower, the scent is given a spicy depth by the suggestion of cardamom beneath.
Amber – Warm, inviting, this fragrance follows the wearer through their day, evolving as the hours pass and bringing out different component notes as the tempo changes. Its dynamic burst of grassiness and greenery matches the energy of morning, subtly maturing into rich spice as the day continues. Closing notes of warm, earthy wood and balmy ambergris bring a more subdued, reflective tone to the fragrance as evening draws in.
Tonka – Spicy and playful, Tonka’s story begins in a jar of pink peppercorns. Rummaging in the spice cupboard, we discovered that beneath their peppery notes, the dried berries of the Peruvian pepper tree have a finely balanced floral fruitiness to their aroma – which we believed would work wonderfully for our fourth fragrance
A world traveler, well versed in refinement and elegance, this self-educated perfumer struck a cord with his luxurious creations. Our favorites include:
PureAddiction – If you’ve ever been described as spirited, this fragrance is you. Disturbing, fascinating, powerful and gourmand. That is the addiction of our desires.
Souffle Intime – Do you remember your first glance? The moment that he took your breathe away? This scent captures that moment. Soft, sensual, with a hint of seduction. The story of a sensual meeting, engrossing, explosive, fusional and gourmand.
Premiere Danse – Imagine dancing under the moonlight, wrapped securely in each other’s arms. Sophistication, freshness and wealth characterize this perfume.
