Lola by Marc Jacobs......

This recently launched perfume by Marc Jacobs is a personal favorite of mine. Lola's scent is a mixture of florals, exotic fruits, roses, vanilla, creamy musk, pear, and ruby red grapefruit are just a few of the elements that make up the eau de parfum. The bottle is stunning in design and the purple colour (very popular at the minute!) is eye catching.

This perfume would be prefect for a winter wedding. When choosing your wedding scent it is important that it refelcts your personailty as it will remind you of your special day for a life time....

Here are a couple of guidelines when choosing wedding perfume:
  • When choosing your perfume, resist the temptation to try everyone in the shop in one visit, as soon you won't be able to distinguish one from the other. Take a notebook, and jot down the name of each one you like on each visit - trying only a couple at a time - 3 or 4 max.
  • Don't pick your perfume according to what you smelt someone else wearing, as different scents smell very different on different people. Even your diet can effect how a smell is on you.
  • If you have extremely oily skin, be aware that your perfume will be stronger on you than it would be on others. Meanwhile, if you have dry skin, pick a small bottle you can keep with you on the day as you will have to reapply it.
  • If the perfume you choose also has a body lotion or eau de toilette in the collection, then applying these first thing in the morning, before adding your perfume later will build up layers of the scent, making it last longer.
  • Be sure to apply your perfume to pulse points, as it is in these spots that blood vessels are closest to your skin. These areas give off more heat, to emphasise the perfume. Pulse points are your wrist, the crood of your arm and knee, behind your ear, and the base of your throat - all places you've probably always added perfume to, without really realising why!
  • Perfume rises - so don't just apply it behind your ears otherwise it won't be long before the scent is lost. So apply it from your ankles upwards.
  • Store your perfume, tightly sealed, in a cool dry place, as excessive heat and air can alter the scent.
