Hey, fall brides — congratulations! You have it all lined up: a wonderful man, a gorgeous dress, a perfect venue, a group of jug players in tuxedos (maybe not). But wait! There's one more detail that you'll want to consider: the all-important wedding day fragrance. Although it's perfectly fine to don your favorite go-to fragrance for your stroll down the aisle, a new scent is nice because it's a specific scent pinned only to your big-day memories, meant to remind you of exactly how beautiful you felt on that special day.
To help you out with that, bridal pro Reem Acra has debuted a lush, glamorous fragrance that would be the perfect wedding-day pick for a classic bride. An amber-based scent made modern with notes of bergamot, pear, peony, and ginger, this scent is perfect if you tend to gravitate toward warm, vanilla-based scents, but would like something more sophisticated for the big day. Inspired by Acra's own memories of collecting amber during her childhood growing up in Lebanon, the designer says that she entered the beauty world with the goal of making brides (and all women) feel beautiful: "A fragrance can create a mood, inspire confidence and, in an instant, transform the way a woman looks and feels."
The super-glam bottle was designed by renowned packaging designer Doug Lloyd, who opted for a sleek flacon design emblazoned with Reem Acra's insignia. The rich gold trim and red accents provide a classic, regal touch, while the graphic, modern shape of the bottle reflects the contemporary context of the fragrance. The result: a grown-up yet grounded scent that's as opulent as the gorgeous gowns Acra is known for. If you've been searching for the perfect scent to make you feel all Grace Kelly as you head down the aisle...this may just be the one.
