GUEST POST - Daphna Rowe of London-Based Ethical Perfumery, Lovorika, Introduces Us to the World of Bespoke Scent for Your Wedding Day

28th June 2019

Scent is processed in the same part of the brain as emotions and memory, so why not create a bespoke scent for one of the most memorable days of your life? Scent is a powerful keepsake, as each time you smell it you will instantly be transported back to that magical day. Bespoke scent is your wedding in a bottle.

Ethical and natural perfume by LovorikaLovorika is an ethical fragrance brand rooted in natural perfumery & aromatherapy. We use not only the highest grade essential oils, we also use luxurious Absolutes, Resins, CO2s, and Natural Isolates sustainably sourced globally. Together this gives our fragrances the goodness of organic aromatherapy and the luxury of hand-crafted natural perfumery. In a world infiltrated with harsh chemicals and synthetic, unsustainable materials, we provide an olfactory oasis of healthy perfume that is 100% natural, plant-based and eco-conscious. 

We are the home of Dry Oil Parfum, the innovative, luxurious dry-oil parfum spray. The non-greasy formula lasts longer while hydrating and moisturising your skin – so you can be sure that the scent is with you all day during the ceremony and remains with you while you party the night away!

We offer two bespoke services tailored to wedding days:

1. One-to-One Consultations

I sit down with the customer, and together we create a bespoke signature scent. This is ideal for the bride and/or groom. I will come to you with a mobile Lovorika apothecary and take you through the base, heart and top notes until you find the combination you absolutely love. Jasmine Sambac, for example, is one of the most popular botanicals selected because not only is the scent absolutely hypnotic, it also aides in relieving anxiety, something even the most confident bride and groom could use! Bergamot is another favourite for its uplifting qualities.

This process usually takes 1-2 hours. I want to ensure you are completely satisfied. I blend the chosen notes in front of you, and you keep a 15ml bottle of your signature scent. It is small enough to keep close on the day and can easily be refilled in the future.

2. A Gathering

This is great for hen dos! Once again, I travel to you with a mobile apothecary. This service is a workshop in which I teach everyone how to compose their own signature scent by explaining the fragrant families and perfume composition. It’s an incredibly fun way for the bride’s dearest to come together and celebrate her upcoming nuptials. It also creates a bonding experience and is a wonderful gift for each of the women who mean the most to her.

This usually averages 2-3 hours with future refills available.
