A wedding fragrance is like having an olfactory snapshot of your special day – in fact, scent has the strongest link to memory, so few things will recall your wedding more effectively. With this in mind, it's a good idea to choose a scent that's entirely new and different from what you would normally wear. And when it comes to a fragrance that's different, featuring high-quality ingredients and serious staying power, Miller Harris offer a number of exquisite scents complete with the wow factor.
Bridal scents are usually from the white floral fragrance family, perfect to team with the wedding bouquet and a white lace dress (or snappy suit!) and Miller Harris has several gorgeous and charismatic contenders to choose from.
Secret Gardenia – £115
This is the perfect scent if you’re after something long-lasting yet classic and unobtrusive to go with a trailing white gown. It opens with crisp, zesty notes of Japanese yuzu and pear – the perfect refreshing pick-me-up after you’ve spent the day thanking guests, managing your mother-in-law’s expectations and posing for countless photos. While the rich floral heart of jasmine and ylang ylang brings the glamour, ensuring you’re every bit the star of the show.
Head: Bergamot , Yuzu, Aqual and Nashi Pear.
Heart: Gardenia, Ylang-Ylang and Violet Petal.
Lasting impressions: Driftwood, Creamy Sandalwood, Cedarwood and Musk.
Rose Silence – £115
Rose Silence puts a modern twist on this beloved bloom, with sharp, tart notes of mandarin and blackcurrant, backed by a mellow chorus of sandalwood and musk which warm up beautifully on the skin. It’s the perfect scent for any modern bride – especially those who are more ‘knee-length dress and red lipstick’ than ‘ballerina bun and ball gown’.
Head Notes: Mandarin, Blackcurrant
Heart Notes: Rose Absolute
Lasting Impressions: Patchouli, Cashmere Musk
Lumière Dorée – £115
If you’re having a spring or summer wedding, this scent will mimic the (hopefully!) cheerful weather you’ll be having, with bright, energising notes of neroli and bergamot, before revealing a rich white floral heart of jasmine and honeyed orange flower. Rather than setting with the sun, this scent stays on that dance floor well into the evening – drying down to an enveloping base of soft amber and musk.
Head Notes: Bergamot, Petit Grain, Orange
Heart Notes: Neroli, Sambac, Jasmine Absolute
Lasting Impressions: Cashmere Wood, Vetiver, Crisp Amber, White Musks
Peau Santal – £115
If wedding night lingerie interests you more than the dress (who doesn’t love a beautiful trousseau), then this is probably the scent for you. Echoing the scent of warm skin, it’s geared around creamy rich sandalwood, blended with cashmere woods, amber and moss – underscored with creamy vanilla. It mingles with the skin so beautifully, it’s the scent equivalent of an ivory silk camisole or lace and pearl bralette.
Head Notes: Bergamot, Pink Pepper, Saffron
Heart Notes: Olibanum, Violet Leaf, Papyrus
Lasting Impressions: Sandalwood, Cashmere Woods, Crisp Amber, Vanilla, Moss
