In case you’ve had a burning curiosity about what Prince Harry and Meghan Markle‘s upcoming nuptials might smell like, prepare to have your inquisitiveness satiated. British Fragrance brand Floris London (founded in 1730) is said to be creating a special bespoke scent for the royal couple. The fragrance will apparently be inspired by their Bergamotto Di Positano perfume, which smells like bergamot, citrus, vanilla, ginger and has green tea undertones. According to The Cut, the scent has a romantic backstory and “was created in remembrance of Mary Floris, as well as her husband, who left the village of Positano on the Amalfi coast in Italy to travel to England to marry her.”
Floris has a longstanding history with the Royal Family, creating perfumes for Queen Victoria and King George VI. It also holds a royal warrant (that’s a seal of royal approval for merchants who provide goods or services to the royal Households) from Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Charles.
And not only did the brand create the scent Wedding Bouquet for Prince William and Duchess Kate’s wedding in 2011 (obviously), they also produce a new perfume every year for the Queen’s birthday. How luxurious.
Unfortunately, for those of you longing to smell like St George’s Chapel on May 19th on a daily basis, you’re out of luck. The perfume won’t be part of the brand’s public offerings, but rather only included in their private collection. Oh, the life of a commoner.
