BEAUTY // Don't mind us whilst we get all sciencey on you for a moment - but did you know smells are first processed by the olfactory bulb, which starts inside the nose and runs along the bottom of the brain? The olfactory bulb has direct connections to the two areas of your brain associated with emotion and memory... so it stands to reason that the scent you pick for your big day is an important choice, as it's a smell that will take you back to that loved filled time for decades to come. One of our faves? @jomalonelondon's Wood Sage & Sea Salt... alive with the mineral scent of a rugged cliff face mixed with the woody earthiness of sage, it's lively, spirited and totally joyful.
