Planned your wedding but haven’t decided on a fragrance yet? Scents are the stuff memories are made of, and just a whiff can transport you to an event long after it’s over. We recommend wearing a specific perfume to make your big day even more special, so that just one whiff months later can transport you back to your special day. Check out six of Nykaa’s best bridal scents based on bridal personalities, from modern fashionistas to bashful beauties.
Modern party Girl
All that band, baaja, baraat is just so not you! You’d rather mark your big day with a pool party or a shindig where everyone turns up in fancy dress. And your partner is totally on board with your unconventional taste. Contemporary floral scents are simply made for your anything-goes, bindaas attitude. We know you’ll fall in love with Chloe Love Story Eau De Parfum, a sophisticated, floral fragrance that’s at once powdery and soft. Inspired by a trip to Japan, the fragrance gives classic gardenia notes a new twist by mixing in impulsive elements like ginger and lemon.
Eternally Chic & Glam
The rock on your finger proves diamonds are indeed a girl’s best friend. After scouring every bridal show in town you’ve hit on a stunning bridal collection that will see you floating to the mandap in full regalia, from the flirtiest pair of false eyelashes to the priciest designer lehenga. Nothing but a scent fit for royalty will make the cut. Estee Lauder Beyond Paradise Eau De Parfum Spray is the only one that stands half a chance to transport you to your heaven on earth. Opening with a flourish of Eden mist that leads to a floral heart composed of laelia orchid, pink honeysuckle and Japanese mahonia. A base of Natal plum blossom, golden melaleuca, and ambrette seeds are the finishing touch.
Belle of the Ball
Your wedding is just another opportunity to throw a fabulous party. The actual ceremony fades when you think of the energy you’ve spent organizing your bachelorette and after- party! You need a fragrance that’s light and airy, just like you. Marc Jacobs Honey Eau De Parfum Spray is as vibrant, bold and spontaneous as you. With top notes of pear, fruity punch and juicy mandarin, the heart includes whiffs of orange blossom, peach nectar and honeysuckle. Meanwhile, honey, golden vanilla and smooth woods form the effervescence base.
High strung Bridezilla
Perfectionist, Tantrum Diva, the murmurs get louder as D Day approaches. You’ve managed to miff members of your bridal party and the florist and event manager are on speed dial. Every second of the wedding has been planned and pored over. Stressed and wrung out? Then Roberto Cavalli Paradiso Azzurro Eau De Parfum is the scent for you. One spritz and you’ll picture yourself on a hammock basking on the Mediterranean coast. A touch of citrus with a zesty note of bergamot blends with the top notes of lavender. Meanwhile the captivating floral middle note merges with the intense woody base notes of cypress for a warm, lingering aroma.
The Calm Queen
While everyone’s twirling in a tizzy over bridal preparations, you’re chilling; choosing to lay back and really enjoy the day. A cosy dinner with close friends and family, and a meaningful but simple ceremony will do just fine. Lancome La Vie Est Belle Florale Eau De Toilette perfectly combines the urban with the traditional. This captivating scent combines Osman thus with an original bouquet of flowers made of mimosa and freesia accords, enriched with a violet leaf accord crisp and green, and softened with an exquisite wooded amber base.

You need a scent that in a spritz evokes all that is holy and sacred. Lancome La Vie Est Belle Eau De Parfum For Women is for you. This sweetly feminine scent celebrates elegance and beauty.
