Wonder no more! ELLE reports that the new Duchess of Cambridge chose White Gardenia Petals by Illuminum. The perfume -- which will set you back about $115 -- is described "as a blend of lily, gardenia, ylang ylang, lily of the valley, and jasmine." Sounds like the perfect fresh fragrance fit for a princess!
Middleton's fragrance choice brings up a good point: Should you go with the tried-and-true fragrance on your big day, or should you find something new (like Middleton did.)
Good news! It's up to you! It's your big day after all -- why would you let anyone else decide what works for you?
"Having advised many a bride to be my first tip is to look at your past and current collection of fragrances. What was/is it about them that you love(d)? This can help determine what kind of fragrance you tend to feel best wearing," fragrance expert Colin Murchie wrote on the Escentual blog.
"Then I always say test, test and test some more! Many fragrance stores will be very helpful providing samples and advice if you tell them you are looking a wedding day fragrance," Murchie continued. "Try to get some samples to take home with you so that you can wear them for at least a day to get a feel if this is what you want. Then, write down the final few that really stood out and try them again! It may even be wise to buy 2 or 3 small bottles of these so you can wear them many times and contrast and compare."
A good rule of thumb: Always follow your heart!
