The wedding guest perfume guide: how to choose the perfect one for their big day

By Lauren Carbran

Wondering which perfume to wear? Whatever role you’re playing in their big day, it’s time to say ‘I do’ to our top wedding guest perfumes…


So you’re on her faves list, which means you need a gorgeous feminine perfume. Look for an eau de toilette that’s fruity or floral. Marc Jacobs Daisy is perfect for an outdoorsy, spring wedding, thanks to its delicate violet and jasmine notes. Or for a fruity feel, Armani Si combines blackcurrant and pear for a burst of freshness.


If you’ve been chosen as her bridesmaid, you’re a seriously special gal. And that means only one thing – you need a perfume to match. Well, rose perfumes are your answer! The new Elie Saab Rose Couture is super-chic with its blend of petals and nectar (mmm, we can just smell romance in the air). If you want a bold rose scent, try Dolce & Gabbana Dolce Rosa Excelsa, which oozes Turkish rose.

Mother of the bride

Your emotions will be running high on the day your baby flies the nest. Tissues? Check. But what you really need is a gorgeous signature scent. Be the sophisticated mama with Gucci by Gucci, combining guava and patchouli for a modern, feminine scent. Want something more oriental? Then Guerlain Shalimar is the one for you. The warm notes of vanilla and tonka bean make for a charming scent that’s not too strong (so she’ll love you even more for not making her nose twitch).

Best man

It may be his big day, but you’re a big part of it, too. Having his best friend make a speech at his wedding is everything to him (not to freak you out!), but nothing speaks confidence quite like a classic fragrance. Let Dolce & Gabbana The One For Men be your pick, combining charismatic notes of orange blossom and tobacco. Or try Aramis by Aramis, which blends woody notes of sandalwood and oak moss for a timeless scent. Either way, your fragrance will definitely be doing some of the talking…


We know you’ll want to flaunt your sassy look with a standout scent. After all, who needs a plus one when you’ve brought along your fave perfume? Marc Jacobs Decadence is your match for the ladies, if you’re looking for that edge – the notes of liquid amber and rose are sure to get the compliments coming. Men should try spicy Hugo Boss Boss Bottled Intense, which will last you from wedding ceremony to dance floor.
