Making Sense of Scents At Your Wedding

What should your wedding smell like? Designers sometimes sell clients on setting the mood with scent. I remember a demonstration by a company that made diffusers giant enough to fill a sound stage with one of their pre-packaged concoctions: cotton candy for circus themed event, and – heaven help us- they even tried to recreate florals.  The air at the premiere party of “The Last Samurai” was supposed to be tinged with a hint of cherry blossoms.  Instead, guests kept asking “what’s that terrible smell?”  The planner needed no coaxing to shut off the machine.

Live well, and love well.
