How To Extend The Life Of Your Wedding Perfume

By Frances Moore, British Makeup Artist

I am a HUGE fan of perfume.  I love having a choice between scents to match my mood, occasion or even outfit.  But how can you make that gorgeous smell last all day?  Well, I’ve complied a list of top tips on how to do just that.  Hope you enjoy!

If you are intrigued, here are my top 5 tips!

Reason one

Once you have your perfect bridal perfume don’t put it in direct sunlight, or in warm/damp place like the bathroom.  The heat will break down the scent and lessen the quality.  Instead pop it in a draw, or on top of a wardrobe away from windows.

Reason two

Rub a little vaseline on your pulse points, as this will hold the scent better on your skin and for longer.

Reason three

Pop your perfume on right after getting out of the shower, and before getting dressed.  The moisture from the shower will help to lock in the scent – and putting your perfume on before dressing will stop any staining coming through on your wedding jewellery and dress!

Reason four

For a lighter scent, spray in mid air and walk through the mist.  The fragrance will distribute evenly over the body and leave a hint of scent.  Perfect for if you have a very heady perfume.

Reason five

Don’t rub your wrists together after applying perfume.  This squashes the top notes and makes them disappear faster resulting in a fragrance that doesn’t last the morning!

“Dear Frances,  Thank you so much for my beautiful make-up for my wedding on Saturday! From first meeting you at the Penton park wedding fair I was instantly drawn to how lovely you were. In the lead up to the big day your organisation was brilliant and the make up trial really helped me decide what I wanted for the big day! Your expertise are phenomenal and you were always eager to make me feel comfortable and relaxed with the look you were creating. I will not hesitate to recommend you to everyone in the future.  Thank you!  Sarah xx”

We wanted our wedding to have some element of connection to a part of our lives. We also wanted a venue which would be unusual and memorable for our guests. That’s when Boon started thinking about the possibility of having it at Winchester College, where he spent many happy years at school.

Considering others and ourselves

Considering others and ourselves

I recently read a gorgeous blog post about the impact we have on the people and world around us. How our deeds, words and responses not only impact ourselves and our mental wellbeing. But how they impact others, their place in the world and their state of mind.
