Roses are red, violets are blue, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have a signature wedding scent and now we need it too.
Yep, you read that right. In addition to bee-friendly floral arrangements and a lemon elderflower cake, the couple’s lavish wedding will include its own bespoke fragrance, which is the most regal thing ever.
The lovebirds reportedly looked to Queen Elizabeth’s fave luxury fragrance brand, Floris London, to set the scene scent for their wedding. The decadent perfume is inspired by Bergamotto di Positano, a warm unisex citrus scent made of bergamot, orange blossom, ginger and green tea that was originally created in remembrance of Mary Floris and her hubby, who left his native Amalfi coast in Italy to marry her in England.
Although seemingly indulgent, this detail is actually in accordance with royal tradition. The royal family and Floris London have been thick as thieves since 1820, when the perfumery first crafted fragrances for Queen Victoria. The company currently holds the royal warrant from Queen Liz and Prince Charles, meaning that all fragrance products in every palace are from Floris. The brand even made Kate Middleton and Prince William’s royal wedding scent, Wedding Bouquet, and makes a new scent for the queen on her birthday each year.
Sadly, we plebs will likely never get the chance to experience Eau de Harry and Meg. The custom scent is part of Floris London’s private collection, which seldom is available for purchase.
If you need us, we’ll be sulking in the corner until May 19.
