My wedding smell

I found my wedding day perfume.

Normally I smell very fresh/green/herbal/fruity, but I've been searching for a floral fragrance for the wedding that will take me back to that day every time I smell it. There's something romantic about a wedding day perfume that really appeals to me, and I have strong memory associations with certain scents.

I knew Marc Jacobs Perfume was the one as soon as I smelled it. Gardenias are my absolute favorite floral smell; they remind me of home, and I'd already considered wearing one in my hair for the wedding anyway.

I've been sneaking sprays of it every time I go shopping, and it already makes me feel dreamy and happy. Divine.

What a great idea! I, too, am transported back when I smell certain fragances. Gucci Rush: nights out in Charlotte. D&G By: crazy times in Raleigh.

Now you need to have Trevor find one. There's nothing better than a great smelling man!

You are definitely the fragrance queen! I think of you when I smell Gucci Rush, for what it's worth. :-)

Trevor doesn't wear cologne (I'm actually really happy about that), and he thinks it would be weird to wear it for one day. He wouldn't smell like him! It did prompt a funny discussion, though: should he pick out a wedding day body wash?! Ha!

I don't think I new Trevor didn't wear cologne. So I agree, him wearing it on your wedding day would be strange. But a body wash could be fun!
