Fragrance Junkie Chronicles: My Wedding Fragrance
As I approach the 1 year mark of my marriage, I am growing increasingly nostalgic to that incredibly beautiful day, what it meant to me, what I felt like, and the unforgettable notion that I made the biggest commitment of my life in front of hundreds of people that meant so much to me and the man I vowed to spend the rest of my life with. Part of that nostalgia is remembering what fragrance was chosen for me, and remembering that scent will be forever tied to the most beautiful day of my life.
That scent for me was L’Artisan Parfumeur Paris, La Chasse Aux Papillons. I remember like it was yesterday (Mainly because it feels just like it was yesterday, this year has gone by way to fast), I wanted a uniquely beautiful scent, and I wanted it to come from Paris, literally. It had always been a dream of mine to wear a beautiful Parisian scent that no one I knew would ever have or wear! As fate would have it, I had a dear friend, Tiffany, living in Paris at the time! I messaged her on What’s App (Best app ever), and pleaded with her to find me the perfect wedding scent. It worked out perfectly because she was traveling to London to visit my best friend Nicole, and was able to give it to her prior to Nicole traveling to the U.S. for the wedding! I gave Tiff three parameters for the perfect scent; it must be unique, something that cannot be purchased in the U.S., and floral. I live for floral scents! They are so soft, girly, and romantic, which is exactly the aroma I wanted on my wedding day!
I must say, Tiffany did not disappoint! She was a bit nervous, especially knowing my love of fragrances, but, she hit the nail on the head with this amazing scent! Thank you Tiff!!!
L’Artisan Parfumeur, a Parisian based fragrance brand, was founded by Jean Laporte over 40 years ago. This historic Parisian perfume company is now run by a team of skilled perfumers, with 100+ years of experience. With a celebration of this classically beautiful brands return, it’s no secrete its iconic heritage, is finally revealing its love of nature.
My wedding scent, La Chasse Aux Papillons, which translates to the Hunting of Butterflies, captures the essence of femininity and grace. As described by the L’Artisan Parfumeur:
Dusk draws over the blue skies and the day becomes golden. In this perfect moment before day becomes night, the air is sun-drenched and filled with white flowers. The light is soft and seductive. The mood is daring and mysterious. The scent of jasmine lingers in the air together with the last butterflies of the day.
Bergamot, Madarin, Pink Pepper, Linden Blossom, Orange Blossom, Jasmine, Lemon Tree Blossom, Tuberose, Ylang Ylang.
Girly. Innocent. Playful.
If you’re worried whether or not you can ever own this scent yourself, don’t worry, Sephora has it available for order! While it isn’t available in stores, you can definitely order online! Trust me, you’ll love it!
La Chasse Aux Papillons is everything a woman could want in a wedding fragrance, and I am forever grateful this unique scent was mine. Did you have a wedding fragrance? If so what scent did you wear? Comment below, I’d love to know!
