Several of the most popular wedding flowers are the key notes in the most incredible fragrances, which gives you the ability to float timelessly back to your special moment with every spritz. After all, they say scent and memory are tied together, so a perfume that's inspired by and worn with your big-day bouquet is a surefire way to make a connection you can cherish forever.
No matter what type of flower you choose to play a starring role in your arrangement—from roses and peonies to jasmine and gardenias—there's a perfume out there that will only serve to enhance your bouquet. Since fragrance matching can be tough, we rounded up a selection of our favorite floral perfumes to correspond with the most popular big-day blooms. Best of all, we made sure to cover a range of price points.

Rose: Diptyque Paris
This rose scent isn't your grandmother's powdery fragrance—it smells fresh and basically just like a bouquet of roses, if not better. And the fact that it's an eau de toilette means it won't be too overwhelming. (Eau de parfums are more concentrated, eau de toilettes are lighter.)
