You can have all the pictures and videos to remember your wedding by, but nothing makes the memories come flooding back faster than a whiff of your bridal perfume--which is why it's absolutely crucial to fuse the precious details of your big day with a scent that you love. After all, it's the one souvenir you can easily repurchase.
That said, if you have yet to find The One among classic scents, check out these recent releases for unique options:

Aerin Bamboo Rose
P9,490 for 200ml, SM Megamall
Rose scents are foolproof for weddings, but Bamboo Rose will make you want to add greens and citrus to that mix. This cologne takes inspiration from the elegance and simplicity of Asian gardens that perfectly complement the sensuality of white roses.
P5,950/50ml, perfume bars at department stores
Introducing the new and reinvented version of the perfume Hubert de Givenchy made exclusively for Audrey Hepburn. It's definitely a non-conventional bridal scent, but if having the notes of white floral, vetiver, and patchouli in one bottle entices you, then it's definitely worth a try.
Tiffany & Co. Tiffany
It's only fitting to have a scent inspired by romance as your wedding perfume, and that's exactly what Tiffany is. A luminous citrus scent with the iris flower at its heart, you just won't be able to help but fall in love with it at your first spritz.
