Discovering the perfect fragrance is somewhat akin to the quest for love. Unless you’re entirely captivated, the idea of flaunting a signature perfume daily is somewhat disconcerting. By defining your preferred scent well before your wedding day, you’ll know you have found the perfect complement to your bridal style.
We asked The LANE girls to share their own signature scents to inspire your quest for the perfect fragrance, and found we are drawn to bold fragrances that fall into either floral or masculine catergories, many with sandalwood undertones that perfectly balance femininity with distinctly masculine elements.
Exploring the ambiguity of florals, sweet notes of rose radiate femininity. A clean and youthful scent incorporating bergamot and fig, florals make for a fresh take on otherwise intoxicatingly sweet scents. The softness of floral fragrances is both modern and timeless, adding the memorable touch of understated femininity to your bridal moment.

Emily’s pick: Diptyque - Do Son
An iconic fragrance embracing the sweet scent of a sea breeze.With divinely mysterious notes of tuberose, orange leaves and pink peppercorns, this delicate floral fragrance is perfect for a summer soiree. Emily loves Do Son for a fresh, natural scent that leaves her nostalgic of the summer sun all year long.
Tess’ pick: Le Labo - LYS 41
A bewitching blend of lilies, jasmine and tuberose, softly complemented by musky undertones. This makes a warm, sunny statement with an air of florals. We love this understated fragrance as a signature scent, one of Tess’ favorites.
Aniella’s pick: Byredo - Gypsy Water
A scent composed upon a fascination with Romany mythology. Gypsy Water is reminiscent of deep forests and campfire settings with notes of sandalwood, juniper berries and vanilla. Aniella’s signature fragrance is the perfect composition of sweet and earthy scents.
