A glamorous London crowd attended an intimate dinner hosted by The Wedding Edition to celebrate the Estée Lauder Luxury Fragrance Collection. Set in the unparalleled Bacchanalia in Mayfair, guests were invited to experience “Journey Through Your Senses” through a series of mood-boosting visualisations and talks led by certified coach, Sabrina Percy.
On arrival, guests were presented with cocktails linking to the fragrance notes. The decoration linked to the Luxury Fragrances through the tones of the elegant tablescape. Guests enjoyed an exclusive champagne reception on Bacchanalia’s balcony before being treated to a sensory three course dinner in Artemis room, paired with Perrier-Jouet champagne.
The exclusive guest list included Maja Malnar, Ling KT, Noorie Ana, Sarah Lysander, Phoebe Torrance, Onyi Moss, Elle McPherson-Yoon, Anita Kaushik, Bambi Bains, Zeena Shah, Leonora Smee, Chantal Piper, Alessandra Frame and more. The Wedding Edition co-founders Kendra Leaver-Rylah and Isabella Foulger commented: “We are thrilled to be working with Estee Lauder, to promote their Luxury Fragrance Collection as we know what an integral part of weddings’ fragrances play. Scents are so personal and evoke memories in the most emotive way, they can take you back to a special occasion in an instance. This is why finding your perfect wedding scent is so important – we’d say essential – for many couples these days.”
Human Potential Coach & Mentor, Sabrina Percy, enlightened the intimate group on the power of scents and their ability to boost your mood and so much more. Sabrina shared; “Based on the incredible science that has come out around odor-evoked memories. We know from experiments that odors are able to elicit more emotional memories than other types of stimuli, resulting in them being especially helpful for enhancing mood states. Positive oder-evoked memories do not only boost mood but have the ability to bolsters self-esteem, strengthens the connection between one’s past and present, produces feelings of social connectedness, elevates optimism, and infuses life with meaning.”
Sabina continued to educate guests by suggesting next time they are travelling through Duty Free to purchase a new scent, save it for your trip, and this scent will forever transport you back to those special memories. Sabina explained that the exercise is based on a combination of the Positive Psychology’s construct of Savouring, basically means consciously amplifying the positive emotions felt from either reminiscing, anticipating or through enjoying the present moment, 2) the science of odor-evoked memories and 3) using a technique called Processing Positive Memories Technique or PPMT. A powerful tool to learn for ahead of weddings, honeymoons, destination hen dos and other special occasions.
