The Scent of a Woman

source

I was inspired by reading Miss Pom's post about what scent to wear on her wedding day. I have acquired quite the collection of frangrances and definitely have certain scents for certain occasions and seasons.
But I read somewhere that it's a fun idea to wear a scent you've never worn before on your big day. Because scents are so powerful in their ability to evoke memories of certain times and places, having a signature scent for your wedding will always bring back the memory of those moments. This NYT article describes your nose as an emotional time machine.

For me, certain Bath & Body Works lotions bring back intense memories of middle school. 'Moonlight Path' will always remind me of our 8th grade trip to DC because I wore it all week long. Everytime I smell it somewhere, it takes me back!
So many of the Escada scents remind me of college since the line of summery, fruity scents were always my favorite "going out" picks. Docle and Gabana's 'By' (once carried at Neiman's) reminds me of the cruise my whole family went on, because I bought it just for that occassion, and Gucci 'Envy Me' will forever be the reminder of when I first met DF. We met in early October, and I still think it's a great summer to fall scent.

My best friend/MOH's mom wears the original Burberry, and I swear their whole house smells like it. While walking through ULTA in June, I decided to spritz some on. I had to call her as soon as I got in the car because it made me miss them so much! So to me, scents are very transcending.

For a great article on how to wear your fragarance on your wedding day, check out this UK brides blog post. I will definitely be going with her step by step instructions!
