Something totally different and new – you may even be the first bride to wear it for your wedding day! With a beautiful nude and black bottle design this scent is dedicated to women. And the Alaïa woman is placed on a pedestal (like she should be), especially on her wedding day. This EDP is a sensual floral suede.

4. Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Sunset in Salina, R1045
Thinking of an island wedding? Then this is the scent to wear. It’s the symbol is Sicily’s sea and of the Mediterranean. Think vine leaves, sun-baked white musk and opulent flowers. The orange juice is reminiscent of Salina’s gorgeous sunsets and the sensual scent will make you feel free and in love.

Warning. This scent is very intense. If you are looking for something timeless and powerful then L’absolu it will be. Leave your mark with a strong trail and be able dance the night away sending off notes of jasmine, musk and sandalwood, to name just a few.
