Unique & Original Wedding Favours: Introducing Love and Scentsibility
Now and again an idea comes along that completely blows me away! It isn’t very often that it happens but when it does I love to scream and shout about it. So what am I talking about?
Wedding Favours are a bit of a dull area for me they are often overlooked at a wedding or a left till the last minute. I rarely see a favour that I really think is unique or original but today I have something that is just that! It will completely amaze your guests and have them talking about in the many months even years to come. Last year we created a list of 50 of the most original and unique favours so we have a good idea of what is already out there. However this favour idea is brand new and completely unique and if we were to do that list again this by far would be at the top of our list!
Today I would like to introduce to you ‘Love and Scentsibility’ a creative new venture from Njari Johnson creating personalised themed fragrance favours for your guests. I just had to interview Njari when I found out about her new venture so this is what she had to say…
How did the idea begin?
As an aroma therapist, scent has always been important to me and in communications, scent is highly effective as it immediately triggers personal memories and desires, which influences decisions, helps to feel better and it allows to distinguishing events or environments immediately. The idea to create fragrant favours was literally a light bulb moment. Those who know me well, would say I am highly romantic, so it’s no surprise I found an outlet for creating something that entwines love, emotion and scent with my design skills I use when making aromatic products. I wanted to create something meaningful for others – something that would leave a lasting impression, be beautiful and unique too. Scent is one of the most underestimated senses we have, especially at a special event such as a wedding, where the focus is on what we see and hear. Love and Scentsibility is bringing smell and touch into the occasion, and making a couple’s special event multi sensory!!
So tell me how would couples go about personalising their scent?
Many wedding couples are looking for something unique for their special day. Often they have a theme in mind already – based on elements such as their personality, personal love story, location, seasons, holidays or culture. Depending on the theme, I can assist with them in choosing a fragrant favour balm that reflects the type of wedding or celebration they have in mind. Perhaps the wedding is based on a season such as autumn, and the ceremony is outside under a canopy of coloured leaves. Invite guests to relive the beautiful season of autumn with a fragrant keepsake, a fragrance balm in the scent of pumpkin vanilla pie, the scent of a rustic cabin, gingerbread, or twilight woods. I can source just about any kind of scent, and it is only limited by imagination and availability.
I will discuss with couples their theme and provide some ideas of scents (unless they already have one in mind) as well as the balm tin design which features their names and date.
Why are you’re favours perfect for our readers?
A fragrance favour is more than just a pretty unique scent. It will appeal to many people, you won’t need to worry about food intolerances (forget sugared almonds, cakes and coffee beans) or other dietary requirements, the favours are even suitable for vegans. Couples can choose an organic fragrant base which is memorable and reflects their special theme, which people will remember using the power of scent. The fragrance is made from a natural and nourishing base of oils that will be soft and smooth on the skin and can be used as a perfume. The balm is great for dry skin spots and nails, and is long lasting. The bride and groom could keep a tin for years to come as a special reminder of their day.
Each fragrant balm is lovingly handmade, personalised and completely original. Whether it’s a traditional or contemporary wedding, to an alternative wedding, there will be a scent to match and get guests talking about how unique their gift is.
Now do you see why I am so excited! What an absolutely fabulous idea! If you would like to order you very own personalised scent as favours for your wedding, head on over to the Love and Scentsibility and use the contact form or visit Clairscentience on Etsy.
