National Fragrance Day 2018: Wedding day scentspiration

Have you ever been transported back in time simply by catching the scent of loved one’s perfume?

It’s no secret that scents and memory are powerfully linked. Without getting too scientific, the part of the brain that is responsible for processing smells “ the “olfactory bulb” “ is next to a part of the brain called the hippocampus, a convergence point for information arriving from all over the rest of the cortex. Neuroscientists have identified the hippocampus as crucial for creating new memories for events.

We think there’s something so romantic about creating wedding day memories, not only through images, but through scent too. How special would it be to have a fragrance that evokes all those beautiful moments of your big day?

NATIONAL FRAGRANCE DAY 2018

We’re not the only ones who love the power of fragrance. In fact, this Wednesday 21st March marks National Fragrance Day 2018, a celebration of your #ScentMemories.

For your chance to win, simply head to our Facebook page and share your favourite #ScentMemory, whether it’s an exact fragrance you associate with a perfect day or perhaps the perfume your mum always wore when you were younger.

 

IN BLOOM

Gucci Bloom is a rich white floral scent that transports to a colourful and diverse garden verdant with flowers and plants. Blended by master perfumer Alberto Morillas with direction from Alessandro Michele, the fragrance is created to unfold like its name. A dreamy wedding day scent!
