Just a thought, but doesn't perfume attract mosquitoes? I was actually planning on leaving mine at home because of that fact (plus, mosquitoes LOVE me to begin with).

That being said... don't laugh... Off! insect repellent comes in a pretty nice "tropical fresh" scent (part of their FamilyCare/Skintastic line). Its melony/tropical. I wouldn't call it "perfume"... but it's really not bad. And, frankly, anything I can do to avoid a bite...

But, for light and fresh I highly recommend Bulgari's Tea collection (white is my fave), and the Issy Miyake is nice for the boys.

Happily married since 2008

    Also try Hanae Mori Butterflys... its my everyday scent and I love it! Light and yet noticeable - has a lot of vanilla undertones too. My FI loves it, but I'm planning on wearing something different for the wedding - Lancome 2000 et une Roses. Its a discontinues scent that I used to love, and I managed to snag a bottle on Ebay! So psyched! Its very different from my norm, so I think FI will remember it.

      I love the ide of something different, there are lots of threads that discuss this previously - do a search for signature scent. I still haven't found mine though....

                Yup, I think you've changed my thinking on this too. I'd never even considered a new scent. FSIL got me Valentino Rock n Rose & FI Prada for xmas. We haven't opened them yet & I'm thinking we'll save those for the wedding. Thanks for the idea!

                Other than that my everyday scents are Eternity Moment or DKNY Be Delicious. Since you all suggest it, I think I'm gonna check out Light Blue!

We both got a new scent for the wedding, and didn't wear it/smell it on eachother until we met at the alter.

                    Now, every time he wears it I am instantly transported back to that moment. It's like a little gift every time he puts it on...haha They say scents evoke the strongest memories....

                    Mine was Vera Wang, the orginal wedding scent (she has like 4 I think).

                    Hubby wore L'Homme by Yves St. Laurant. Both very light and happy scents.

                    Good luck!
                    I never thought of it that way...I might have to on a wedding day perfume hunt now...
