I am not sure whether the idea of a “Bridal Fragrance” is popular over here in Singapore. But if you think through the bridal preparation process, you have spent so much time on your gown, hair, makeup, jewellery, shoes and bouquet (with specific colours and flowers in mind) for the grand occasion, you should not forget the important final piece to the puzzle – the scent.

The selection of the fragrance would depend on the theme of wedding, as well as the personality and preference of the bride. What is the impression that the bride would like to create? A romantic ambience? Elegance? Or a warm and cozy feeling?

Aura by Swarovski launched a new Collection Mariage, specifically “to transport every woman into an Aura of Love”.

The packaging is printed with a pattern of the lace veil with little floral prints all over, signifying a spring wedding with refreshing floral notes. In terms of the scent, the Mariage collection smells slightly different from the original Aura by Swarovski, as it has a more intense top note – which is a lot sweeter and more floral – but subsides to a more musky accord thereafter.

I think the Makeup Jewel makes a really cute bridal present. The lip gloss is suitable for everyday use and would remind the bride of the most important day of her life every time she adorns the gift.

Here are some tips for brides on perfume application during your big day.

1. Other than applying the fragrance to pulse points: behind the ears, on the wrists, behind the knees, on the small of the back, add some to the cleavage.

2. The fragrance could also be applied to your hair – which is why Aura by Swarovski Collection Mariage also comes with a Perfuming Hair Mist (S$65) . Otherwise, you could spray the fragrance on your hands, clap your hands to get rid of the alcohol before running your hands through your hair.

3. Spray your fragrance before getting into your wedding gown. Some sprays might damage the fabric, so be cautious when you reapply your fragrance throughout the day.

4. If your fragrance comes with body lotion or body cream, you could layer your scent by applying these products first, before applying the EDP. This helps to make your fragrance last longer.

To my dear friends who are getting married this year, please stay calm and do not be alarmed if I go around you sniffing your scent at your wedding!
