Perfumes are so evocative, they can take you back to a special time or place and remind you of a loved one. We all remember our first perfume and how it made us feel. The sense of nostalgia it creates is like nothing else. Which is why it makes sense to give serious thought to your wedding day perfume. Really think about how you want to feel on the day and the impression you want to give off. Do you want something light and floral or something more heady and dramatic? Unsure? Head to the perfume department at Liberty where you’ll find some of the most intriguing and unusual perfumes in the country. The staff are seriously clued-up too and will help you find the right perfume for you. Another great perfume shop packed with unusual fragrances is Les Senteurs in Belgravia. Find the category of fragrance you like and spritz to your heart’s content.
