When heading on your honeymoon, your favorite perfume might be something you'll want to throw in your carry-on. But what about trying something new? Since memory and scent are so closely linked, spritzing on a new scent can, in a sense (see what we did there?), evoke memories of your honeymoon each time you use it in the future. And why not match your fragrance to your surroundings while you’re at it?
We’ve rounded up our favorite perfumes to perfectly complement the world's top honeymoon destinations for a match made in olfactory heaven. Bon voyage!
