Smell like a royal.

Last Updated on June 18, 2023

Since joining the royal family, Kate has been setting trends worldwide and creating sensations overnight with her preferred fashion choices. We all are looking forward to her Wimbledon outfits, don’t we? But did you ever wonder what scents she uses?

If, like me, you’ve been curious about the perfumes favored by the new Princess of Wales, rest assured, I’ve got you covered!

Though not very often these scents are not available for purchase, seeing as members of the royal family go for working with a perfumer to curate their pick of formulas.

The details of the scents are kept secret and the same composition is not available to the public knowledge. 

To get our hands on the actual royal favored fragrance – we should look for royal-sealed labels. These seals mean that they are being directly supplied to the royal family.

Kate opted to wear a white floral scent on her wedding day by a small local brand. The White Gardenia Petals by Illuminum is composed of eight ingredients that make up four scents with the top notes of lily, bergamot and cassis.

Once Clarence House confirmed this revelation, the scent swiftly flew off the shelves, selling out in no time.

A sweet, floral scent was also present on this big day as Jo Malone’s Orange Blossom candles were lit on the West Minister Abbey as per Kate’s request.

The crisp and clean tangerine blossom aroma filled the air as she walked down the aisle to her prince.

Kate’s other Jo Malone scents she’s been known to savour are the Grapefruit and Lime, Basil, and Mandarin and it’s being said that she wears them daily.

Floral and sweet fragrances seem to be a staple to the royals as Kate’s sister-in-law Megan Markle’s favourite scent is the Jo Malone Wild Bluebell with top notes of cloves and bellflower. 

Princess Diana also picked up a ranging composition of flowers by Houbigant Paris. The Quelques Fleurs by the said brand has the top notes of lily of the valley (Princess Diana’s favourite flower), rose, and orange blossom. 

Though Buckingham Palace did not officially talk about the late Queen Elizabeth II fragrance preferences it was reported that she wore White Rose by Floris on her wedding day.
