Dressing like Diana, Princess of Wales or Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge is out-of-reach for most. However, by investing in the right perfume, almost anyone can smell like a Princess. After a little research, I’m listing the favorite fragrances of the royals. Many of these scents are mostly confirmed, but some are speculated, in regards to the favorite fragrance royal women chose to wear on their wedding days.
I. Diana, Princess of Wales: ‘Quelques Fleurs’ by Houbigant Paris
2. Queen Elizabeth: ‘White Rose’ by Floris
The Queen has never released the name of her favorite scent, however, it is somewhat easy to guess what fragrance she may have worn on her wedding day.
3. Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge: Illuminum
Kate was confirmed by Clarence House to have worn this soft floral scent by small British fragrance brand Illuminum during her 2011 wedding to Prince William. The perfume, which was little-known before then, instantly became a global hit. According to Daily Mail, every single bottle in the 50mL size was sold out within minutes of the perfume being unveiled.
Daily Mail also reported that the Duchess of Cambridge requested that Westminster Abbey, the location of her wedding, be fragranced with her favorite Jo Malone scents. She purportedly requested Orange Blossom, Grapefruit and Lime, and Basil and Mandarin fragranced candles and toiletries from the famed English brand before her nuptials took place.
4. Meghan, Duchess of Sussex: Diptyque
Luxury fragrance brand Diptyque revealed that they scented the royal wedding, after Meghan Markle and Prince Harry personally chose a selection of fresh and floral fragrances that were perfect for spring and for the momentous occasion.
The brand’s iconic candles and room sprays helped scent the spaces where the Duke and Duchess of Sussex prepared for their special day, and the fragrances were also used to enhance the beautiful surroundings of St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.
The brand is unable to reveal the exact fragrances they supplied for the royal wedding. However, here is something wonderfully spring-fresh from Diptyque: their Tubéreuse and Rose scented candles, pictured, and room sprays.
