Toronto-based stylist and personal shopper Talia Brown Thall received a lot of support when she decided to scentscape her wedding in February 2019 at the Omni King Edward Hotel in Toronto.
Ever since making her first perfume purchase when she landed her first job, working in high-end luxury store sales, Thall had been obsessed with orange blossom. So, as soon as she got engaged, she worked with Jo Malone London to create a bespoke orange blossom scent. Ms Thall added Jo Malone’s Orange Blossom scented candles to the signature table, as well as scented hand soaps and lotions in the bathrooms.
“It was just another personal detail to help make it seem like the wedding was detailed with parts of us,” Ms. Thall said. “I wanted people to feel the love of our marriage: it only added magic.”
Scentscapes can be magical for couples on a budget, as they can start as low as the cost of a candle or diffuser ($ 25 – $ 100). They can create the illusion of having more flowers. Or they can transport guests to a different experience, using the scent to create a whole new vibe for a speakeasy-themed side room, for example, Ms Avigne said, explaining that a speakeasy would likely have woody notes, but might look a little cool or oriental.
Erica Hoke, owner of Foxfire Candle Works in Houston, encourages couples to consider their surroundings when creating a fragrance for their wedding. They should take into account the color scheme, the feel of the tablecloths, the taste of the food and the sound of the music, she said.
Ms. Hoke says she has created many scents with hints of cedar and leather to accompany a rustic wedding. She adds this scent to lotions, sugar scrubs, soaps, diffusers, mists and candles. The cost tends to range from $ 1,000 to $ 2,000 for most weddings, she said.
