This summer’s wedding trend for the cool festival set is the boho wedding. With overnight glamping in bell tents, live music and informal but delicious street food served from a VW camper, an outdoorsy festival wedding is for those who want to step away from tradition. A boho wedding celebrates the English countryside with a quirky twist – think swathes of rustic country garden flowers tied with brightly coloured ribbons and apple trees filled with strings of coloured bulbs and bunting.
So, you have the marquee set up and brimming with fresh flowers, you have the bands booked and your vintage wedding dress and groom’s suit ready (and your wellies just in case!), so now its time to think of those final but oh so essential elements of your day starting with what fragrance to wear? Try these boho fragrance selections to add the finishing touch to your perfect day…..
For the Groom: Wilde by Jardin d’Ecrivains awakens the senses with fresh top notes of bergamot, a rich fig heart and oakmoss and vetiver base notes. The scent of an elegant English gentleman, this fragrance is the perfect accompaniment to a gin and tonic on the lawn with the groomsmen in preparation for the day ahead.
For the Bride during the day: Oeillet Bengale by Aedes De Venustas opens with the brightness of bergamot before revealing a deep and luxurious floral heart of rose and carnation, with a spicy depth in its cinnamon, clove and pepper notes. This fragrance perfectly captures the essence of true and enduring love.
And for the evening: Terasse a St-Germain by Jul et Mad exudes relaxed and romantic elegance. A fragrance from the Histoire D’Amour collection, this fragrance evokes memories of the time brand owners Julien and Madalina first met in Paris. This is an elegant fruity and citrus scent, with notes of freesia and blue rose rounded with Indonesian patchouli. Staying close to the skin, this fragrance is a classic symbol of the closeness and intimacy of moments with your one true love.
