People say that associating a memory with a scent is one of the best ways to remember it. Apparently, years (or even decades) could pass, and catching a whiff of that familiar fragrance can instantly take you right back, like a photo-free walk down memory lane.
That knowledge holds true for every big life event, but especially for your wedding. Not only will the perfect fragrance put you in the mood and catch those compliments, it'll make recalling the special day that much easier.
Ahead, celebrities and influencers reveal the scents they chose for their big day that did the job perfectly:
1. Tricia Gosingtian
"Elie Saab Le Parfum in White! The smell is very feminine and elegant!"

2. Camille Co-Koro
"I think it was Pure Grace by Philosophy. It was a tiny sample size since we were abroad. I’m not really so particular with scents."

3. Mica Javier
"I was wearing Diptyque Eau Duelle. I'm obsessed with fragrance, I actually used to have my own fragrance line, and the scents I'd always be drawn to are ones with vanilla. I love Dyptique because it's kind of a mysterious and sophisticated twist to a vanilla scent, not too feminine and sweet, but still sexy, strong, and smells better as time passes. It also lasts a long time, perfect for beach wedding!"
DIPTYQUE Eau Duelle, P9150, Power Plant
4. Coleen Garcia-Crawford
"Jo Malone Sakura Cherry Blossom. It was actually a surprise gift from Ycoy of La Belle Fete. She was my wedding planner and it was given to me on that day while I was getting ready."

5. Rissa Mananquil-Trillo
"I wore Maîson Francis Kurkdjian APOM Pour Femme on my wedding day. This is one of my favourite perfumes in the world. The scent is a rare balance of what a woman should be: delicate but dangerous, soft and strong. Paolo [Trillo] tells me he finds me irresistibly sexy every time I wear it and the scent lasts all night. I love how APOM stands for 'A Part of Me' because each time you wear it, you never fail to leave a part of yourself with others, too."

6. Divine Lee-Go
"Tom Ford Oud Wood is a classic. It's what I've been wearing since I got together with Blake. And also the perfume I brought for my Europe trip where Blake followed. So it's a bit memorable for me."
TOM FORD Oud Wood, price unavailable, Rustan's Makati
7. Ava Daza
"I usually wear what I feel like and I'm pretty sure on my civil wedding day I wore my Jo Malone Wood Sage and Sea Salt scent 'cause this is my go-to. Still searching for my wedding day scent for next year!"
JO MALONE LONDON Wood Sage and Sea Salt, P8150, Rustan's.com
8. Maxene Magalona
"I used my favorite perfume which has been my perfume for years —Lanvin Eclat [d'Arpège]! I really wanted to stay true to myself by just using my everyday perfume. I really love it and it’s honestly the only one I wear!"
LANVIN Eclat d'Arpège, P3698, Zalora
9. Kryz Uy
Kryz had the most thoughtful reason for skipping perfume on her wedding day: "I don't wear perfume, my husband is allergic!"
10. Heart Evangelista
In a vlog on her YouTube channel, Heart revealed that her wedding fragrance is Penhaligon's Luna. "It's very powdery, very light, very fresh. It's something you can really use every day. I think this would also be one of my signature scents."
