2 Year Anniversary | What We Wore

Today my husband and I celebrate two years of marriage! Wow - I honestly don't know where the last two years have gone! We have had so much fun together, and I can't wait to see what the years ahead bring us! To celebrate today, I thought I'd share some pictures from our wedding day, and a little bit about something "sweet" that brings me right back to that day.

As we prepared for our big day, I read a tip that I knew I had to try out: buy a new perfume and cologne to wear on your wedding so that the smell always reminds you of that time in your life. Scent is a huge memory trigger and really has the power to transport you back to a time or place.

We did lots of sampling to find the perfect scents for our wedding day and here is what we chose.

Jake chose Chanel Allure Homme as his new wedding day cologne. I absolutely love this cologne, and it smells so classy and formal for a big event like a wedding. The top notes are a mix of "green freshness, warm sharpness of pepper, strength and elegance of wood, and warm sensuality of labdanum, and tonka." (source)

This cologne has a warm, earthy freshness with a hint of musk. The lasting power is great - you can smell it even at the end of the day.

For my perfume, I chose Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb. Flowerbomb is a well-loved scent, characterized by green tea and bergamot, and floral scents like orchid, jasmine, freesia and rose. It's a rather powdery floral scent. I think this perfume is classic and feminine - an absolutely perfect bridal scent.

I would suggest all future brides & grooms pick a new scent for your wedding day, and keep those scents just for special occasions. Jake and I wear Allure Homme and Flowerbomb on our anniversary, Christmas, date nights... any day we find special. Each time I spray on Flowerbomb, I'm transported to the happiest weekend of my life, warm nights in Barbados (where we honeymooned), and a feeling of utter happiness. 

What perfume did you wear on your wedding day? I LOVE knowing what people chose!
