Your bridal bouquet is the perfect accessory to your wedding dress, but did you know you also need a perfume pairing that works with your chosen blooms? Elevate your wedding day style by picking a scent that is the ideal complement to your gorgeous bridal arrangement. We've already explained our favorite fragrances to pair with a Lily of the Valley, so this week we're covering another bridal favorite: Peonies!
These fluffy, feminine, and oh-so-bridal blooms give off a fresh citrusy scent that works well with hyacinth, wisteria, or leafy green notes. If you've selected a bouquet of these layered flowers, consider one of these three incredible scents.
Our first pick is a luminous scent from Raymond Matts. Inspired by Linden trees in bloom on a June day, this airy fragrance is filled with notes of citrus and watery green tones, along with lilac, saffron, vanilla, and soft woods. The result is entirely feminine and light, and perfect for your big day. "Maiaday", $200, Raymond Matts
Next, we love this delicate pick from Carven. With notes of bright Italian lemon, sweet pea, peony, floral notes, freesia, white hyacinth, and wisteria, it's the perfect scent to pair with a lush peony bouquet. "L'Eau de Toilette", $105, Carven
Finally, we love this fruity-yet-floral fragrance from Marc Jacobs. Light and airy, and inspired by the spirit of daisies and blue skies, it's a great complement to your lush peony bouquet. The sweet scents of blackberry, grapefruit, pear, jasmine, wisteria, and coconut water combine in a unique and bright perfume you'll love! "Daisy Dream", $75, Marc Jacobs
