Here’s The Top Wedding Perfume Chosen By Only a Wedding Readers

As part of our beauty series on wedding perfume, we asked Only a Wedding readers who’ve already tied the knot to tell us what fragrance they chose for their big day. Though the readership is fairly diverse, one perfume kept popping up: Jo Malone Peony and Blush Suede.

This choice tallies with the world outside Only a Wedding, where Peony and Blush Suede has been the go-to bridal perfume since its 2013 launch. So, we weren’t surprised, but we were interested; what is it that makes brides go crazy for the seemingly simple floral scent?

Jo Malone Fragrance Consultation

Jo Malone stores and concessions hold free fragrance consultations. Couples get a glass of bubbles, a hand massage and the chance to try everything from the range, with the guidance of the sales consultant.

It’s an experience in itself, and, while no Only a Wedding readers gave reports of hard-selling tactics, it’s all too easy to fall in love with a €110 perfume when you’ve been greased up with rose oil are are necking Prosecco at 10AM.

The Idea of a Bridal Scent

Some gals like the idea of going turbo bridal; the white dress, the soft makeup and yep, the floral fragrance. The Only a Wedding stance on this is nuanced. It’s important that you don’t feel like you’ve got to bin your usual style for the sake of tradition, especially as some of those traditions are so rooted in sexism.

However, if you’ve done a gut check and being the most bridey bride that has ever brided is your thing, we say go for it, feel your fantasy.

In that instance, Peony and Blush Suede is one of most wedding-appropriate scents. It’s elegant and soft, plus it lasts all day. Bride on.

Peony and Blush Suede is a Deserving Winner

Leaving Only a Wedding‘s signature style of excessive beauty analysis aside, Peony and Blush Suede is a damn good perfume.

It’s nice! People like nice things, and brides are people. The mystery of the crowd-pleasing floral scent is solved!

The Bridal Fragrances That Almost Made It

Peony and Blush Suede was a billion times more popular than any other fragrances mentioned, but there were two fragrances that garnered enough votes to warrant mentioning: Jo Malone Wood Sage and Sea Salt and Dior Miss Dior. The former is worth a sniff if you’re into more masculine scents, the latter is a winner if you like an intense floral.

And, if none of the above tickle your fancy, fear not; we’ve got the guide on how NOT to pick your wedding day perfume too.
