5 Fragrances To Match Your Wedding Dress | Clozette
Finding the perfect wedding dress is the first thing that every bride plans for, but it’s never the first thing off that checklist. With so many other details to match the dress with – from jewellery to shoes to headdresses – we can just imagine how tempting it is to succumb to your inner bridezilla. So in a bid for smoother sailing in your bridal preps, we carefully picked five gorgeous gowns for different types of brides and matched them with a fragrance that suits each personality and style.

--------------------------


The Fairytale Bride


The Gown: Vera Wang 

The Fragrance: Dolce&Gabbana Rose The One EDP 

Tip: Match your scent to the flower of your choice. For example, if your motif includes roses, choose scents with rose at the heart. Rose The One from Dolce&Gabbana, with its soft, rosy and floral aura, would make a good choice for such a romantic theme.

The Chic Modern Bride


The Gown: Carolina Herrera

The Fragrance: Salvatore Ferragamo Signorina EDP

Tip: Always go for a perfume that is a reflection of your personality. This Herrera gown is sleek, modern, elegant, stylish and simple. If that’s your style, then Ferragamo’s Signorina will suit you as well. Its ultra feminine floral notes of jasmine and peony are perfect for a spring/summer garden wedding.



The Princess Bride


The Gown: Monique Lhullier

The Fragrance: Gucci Flora Garden Violet

Tip: A special occasion calls for a special fragrance — you want this scent to be associated with nothing else but your big day. And the best accessory for a dress befitting royalty has got to be unforgettable, just like the Gucci Flora Garden Violet’s leathery, floral scent.



The Graceful Bride


The Gown: Marchesa

The Fragrance: Bottega Veneta EDP

Tip: If you’re having a wedding in the park, you can afford to go with a slightly more robust perfume — it’d be a nice contrast to this ethereal Marchesa dress. Bottega Veneta EDP is just that, a rare fragrance that is love at first whiff.



The Dramatic Bride


The Gown: Vivienne Westwood

The Fragrance: Hugo Boss Nuit Pour Femme EDP

Tip: With a dramatic gown like this Vivienne Westwood confection, you’ll want an equally sensational fragrance that will last throughout the day. Nuit is the obvious choice if your floral theme is complementary to white flowers – jasmine or violet – which are essential ingredients of the perfume. Use perfume generously everywhere from your hair to your neck and cleavage to your wrists and the back of your knees for an impressive overall effect.

Along with the excitement that comes with the anticipation of your long-overdue vacation getaway is the self-induced stress of deciding what to pack into your luggage as the day draws near. The stress and resulting panic is perfectly understandable though because we all want to look flawless and fabulous in our vacation photos so we don't look back and be all "What was I thinking?" 

So we're cutting through the stress for you and have put together a few tips on how to easily #BeautyUp your travel style.

--------------------------

Tip #1:  Aim for Comfort


Hitting up a museum, a zoo, and the mall all in one day? No problem! Pack clothes that are comfortable to move around in no matter your itinerary. Much like this floral skort dress paired with flats. It's a look that is both comfy and fashionable at the same time. Plus point: such outfits don't take up much space in your luggage. Just roll and pack!
Tip #2:  Fashionable Sunnies


Travel usually means having to forgo sleep, even if you may just be travelling within the same time zone. And we all know that when you're sleep-deprived, you should somewhat expect tired eyes and dark circles--definitely not a great look for photos. So do yourself a favour and slip on a pair of sunnies. That way, no one will ever know that you've only gotten 2 hours of sleep. 


Tip #3:  Stylish Hats


Planning a relaxing day at the pool or by the beach? Then don't forget to bring along a wide-brimmed hat to protect your skin and hair from harmful UV rays. It's one of those must-have items that not only prevents those terribly painful post-vacation sunburns but also keeps you looking chic in photos. Think: celebrity by the pool.


Tip #4:  Control The Damage


When you're on holiday, fussing with your hair should be the least of your worries. Besides, why take time away from another jaunt to the mall or a quick dip in the pool with a fussy hair care routine. So keep things simple with Cream Silk's Damage Control Daily Treatment Conditioner. It makes hair less prone to damage by intensively repairing affected areas while protecting hair from heat, styling, and the environment in just one wash. Definitely a go-to product for quick and easy damage control while on-the-go!

As you jet set from Singapore to Tokyo to Seoul and Hong Kong snapping up the latest wardrobe trends and best deals these stylish cities have to offer, it is imperative that you also leave a trail of your own… scent — one for each city. We did our homework and shortlisted a few fabulous fragrances befitting each Asian fashion capital so you can better spend your time snapping street-style pictures.

--------------------------

TOKYO 
Tokyo is a city of contradictions. When in Tokyo, then, it’ll make sense to wear a perfume that is comparably intriguing. We’d go with Dolce&Gabbana’s Pour Femme EDP, a true-blue Oriental fragrance with gourmand notes to add a touch of sensuality; and D&G’s Light Blue Pour Homme EDT, which combines woody notes and incense to offer a wonderfully exotic aura befitting Tokyo.
SEOUL
We can’t help but think of the hibiscus flower when we think of Seoul. After all, it is Korea’s national flower. So, when in Seoul, do as the Koreans do: wear the hibiscus with pride — and ample style. Opt for a perfume that features the hibiscus — such as D&G’s No 14 La Temperance and Marc Jacobs’ Tropical Splash Hibiscus fragrance.


HONG KONG/CHINA 

While Seoul has hibiscus, China is all about the peony. The Gucci Flora EDP is the perfect accouterment if you’re planning a trip to trendy Hong Kong or Shanghai. Everything about the perfume dictates couture, style and taste with femininity — in the form of peony, what else — at its heart. For something a touch softer, go for the Gucci Flora Garden Magnolia instead, which is a beautiful blend of magnolia and peony.


SINGAPORE 

Whether you reside in Singapore or are just stopping by for a quick sunny getaway, it pays to have on a vibrant and cheery scent that is not too heavy. A light, fruity/floral scent like Escada’s Island Kiss can take you from the city’s Central Business District to Sentosa in a heartbeat. If you’re here for fun in the sun, you can afford to put on something more intense and luxurious, like the Roberto Cavalli EDP — we like to think of it as a golden drop of sunlight that smells like oriental florals and orange blossom.
