Spring will soon be here, but if there are any lingering wintertime nuptials left on your calendar (maybe even your own!), you'll want to read this. Why, you ask? Because we have the perfect winter wedding perfume, just for you!
Some of the best scents come alive in winter months, packed with rich notes of deep berries, citruses, musks, spice, and everything nice. (See what we did there?)
So if you’re getting married in the last few weeks of the season, here are some of our favorite scents to rock down the cold-weather aisle.
Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean you can’t embrace a sweet scent. Perfectly bold but bright, hints of white musk balance the spice and sweetness—hence the name. Bold caramel combines with powdery notes and vanilla for a flirty and feminine fragrance that's perfect for your wedding day.

Alien by Mugler
This bold, distinct perfume combines notes of cashmeran wood, ambergris, and jasmine sambac that work together for a warm and sensual aroma. While it can be worn in any season, there’s something about this that makes you warm up in the cold. Consider layering it with the complementing body wash and cream for the ultimate scent-sual experience.

Dark Amber & Ginger Lily cologne by Jo Malone
If you love scents that have a natural vibe, Jo Malone fragrances are an excellent option. The Dark Amber & Ginger Lily cologne is refreshing yet lean, with a unique combination of amber, black orchid, black cardamom, ginger, and water lily. A little bit spicy and equal parts clean and floral, it’s a great option for those looking for something different but beautiful.

J’adore Eau Lumière
For subtle scent seekers, J’adore Eau Lumiere by Dior boasts a sophisticated scent that exudes citrusy notes of blood orange, a signature smell of the season. Combined with floral notes, vanilla, and lemon, it’s fresh, floral, and especially romantic.

Gucci Guilty Absolute Pour Femme
While the name doesn’t scream “wedding,” the scent certainly does. With just the right balance of spicy patchouli, blackberry, Goldenwood, and Bulgarian rose, this fragrance is mysteriously fruity, yet still bold enough to make it a serious contender for your signature winter scent.
