10 WEDDING DAY SCENTS FOR THE GROOM

From Creed and Prada to Tom Ford and Acqua Di Parma, these are the perfect wedding day scents for grooms.

WORDS: Hannah Dunn Photographer: Jane Doe

Looking for a fresh new scent for the big day? You’ve come to the right place. Finding a wedding day cologne can be a tricky affair but as our sense of smell is so strongly linked to memories, it’s key to get it right. Look for a scent that aligns with you and your wedding vibe. Garden-based or on the beach? Go for something woody and warming. Further afield? Try something fresh. Most importantly, keep in mind what your partner is wearing on the day - you want your fragrances to complement not contradict. And when you’ve finally found the one, remember to spray the inside of your shirt or jacket for a scent that’ll last all day. From Creed and Prada to Tom Ford Beauty and Acqua di Parma, these are the scents to invest in for your wedding day.

MAISON FRANCIS KURKDJIAN – GRAND SOIR

1. MAISON FRANCIS KURKDJIAN – GRAND SOIR

New to the FLANNELS Beauty family, Maison Francis Kurkdjian fragrances are just what your wedding day called for. Inspired by twinkling evenings in Paris, Grand Soir was made for fancy occasions. Ambery and woody, vibrant and entrancing, it features cinnamon leaf, warm vanilla and lavender.

JO MALONE LONDON – ENGLISH PEAR & FREESIA

2. JO MALONE LONDON – ENGLISH PEAR & FREESIA

The ideal scent for an autumn wedding, Jo Malone London’s English Pear & Freesia combines the freshness of just-ripe pears with white freesias, amber, patchouli and wood. Light enough that’ll work in spring and summer too.

GUCCI – THE ALCHEMIST’S GARDEN THE HEART OF LEO

3. GUCCI – THE ALCHEMIST’S GARDEN THE HEART OF LEO

Part of Gucci’s luxury fragrance collection, The Alchemist’s Garden, The Heart of Leo is inspired by the brightest star from the Lion constellation. Featuring tangy and sweet blackcurrant, balsamic Olibanum (frankincense by any other name) and a base of smoky, spicy myrrh, the result is an ambery, fruity fragrance that would suit a city wedding to a tee.

D.S. AND DURGA – ROSE ATLANTIC

4. D.S. AND DURGA – ROSE ATLANTIC

Another new fragrance brand for the FLANNELS Beauty shelves, D.S. & Durga create unique scents inspired by specific moments and memories. Rose Atlantic is a near perfect example. Like bottling up the beaches of America’s north-eastern coast in summer, they take their cues from the roses found nearby; fresh and purple, fruity in the summer sun; mixed and mingled with honeysuckle, black raspberry and cool salty air. Bliss.

CREED – AVENTUS

5. CREED – AVENTUS

The classic all-rounder is a bestseller for a reason. By combining fresh and uplifting notes, such as bergamot and apple, with woody and aromatic notes, like oakmoss and birch, this fragrance covers you from day to night. It’s also extremely long-lasting, meaning it’ll last all wedding day long.

ACQUA DI PARMA – SIGNATURES OF THE SUN SANDALO

6. ACQUA DI PARMA – SIGNATURES OF THE SUN SANDALO

If there were an award for the most versatile and likeable fragrance note, it would no doubt be won by sandalwood. In Sandalo, it’s complemented by amber and tonka bean for a smooth and creamy base. Contrasted with citruses, this fragrance makes the perfect spring or autumn wedding scent.

TOM FORD BEAUTY – OUD WOOD

7. TOM FORD BEAUTY – OUD WOOD

Looking for a scent that stands out? Tom Ford’s Oud Wood is a universally flattering and extremely well blended fragrance. Utilising a smokey version of the key ingredient of oud, it combines with cardamom, sandalwood and vetiver for a spicy and sensual aroma. The incense-like woods will leave a warm scent trail following you around.

PRADA – L’HOMME L’EAU

8. PRADA – L’HOMME L’EAU

Prada L’Homme L'Eau belongs to one of the oldest fragrance families in modern perfumery, the Fougère. Meaning ‘fern’ in French, this olfactive family is defined by sweet top notes (usually lavender), a strong oakmoss presence and the addition of herbs and spices. Timeless and elegant, this is the perfect groom scent.

ARMANI PRIVE – CUIR NOIRE

9. ARMANI PRIVE – CUIR NOIRE

If you’re not sold on the exquisite bottle alone, then read on to hear the incredible blend of notes. French for leather, ‘cuir’ takes centre stage, complemented by creamy Australian sandalwood, rose essence and spices. The base features smokey guaiac and oud wood, with the musky benzoin cutting through the sharpness for a smooth, sophisticated scent.

PARFUMS DE MARLY – PERSEUS

10. PARFUMS DE MARLY – PERSEUS

Said to evoke a sun-soaked early morning at the royal residence of Marly, Perseus has all the trappings of a classic men’s fragrance. There’s pink grapefruit for a hit of citrus. Ambergris and long-lasting dry woods. And a vetiver heart. Fresh, invigorating and mood-boosting - just what you want on your big day.
