Choosing a Wedding-Day Fragrance
Your wedding-day perfume will always trigger special memories, so choose it carefully. When shopping, you can better describe what you're looking for if you know a few pros' terms. Experts divide scents into six families: chypre (sheep-ra, French for Cyprus), fougere (foo-zhair, or fern), citrus, green, floral, and oriental. For a wedding in the mountains, you might try a woodsy chypre. A country gathering may call for a fresh citrus. Light floral and green scents are nice in spring and summer, and spicy oriental and musky fougere in fall or winter. Talk to your florist about incorporating notes of your scent into your bouquet.
