Do you ever wonder what the royals smell like? Ya, me too.
Royals, the OG trendsetters in fashion, always slay the style game. From Kate giving the wedding dress a modern twist to Meghan owning the coat dress vibe, they’re the epitome of timeless chic. But let’s talk about something a bit more mysterious – their personal scents.
Perfume and cologne might be invisible, but damn, they leave a mark. It’s like a secret weapon for memory. And let’s not even get started on how it can turn a basic outfit into a whole damn mood. A spritz of the right scent can have you strutting like you own the place or feeling classy AF. So, who better to take inspo from than our favorite royals? These guys know how to make a fragrance choice that’s as iconic as their crown jewels.
The Princess of Wales, Kate
Smells Like: Clementine, White Lilac & Orriswood
Kate Middleton, aka the floral queen, has a soft spot for scents that bloom, and her ride-or-die is none other than Jo Malone London’s Orange Blossom cologne. This perfume is basically the Beyoncé of the brand – a total hero product and a must-have for any self-respecting millennial. Described as a “shimmering garden oasis,” it’s the scent equivalent of sipping a cocktail in a boujee garden. And of course, it’s the perfect fit for our gardening-loving Princess of Wales.
As for price? The 100ml bottle might make your wallet shed a tear, but fear not – there’s a 30ml option for just £55. So, you can still smell like royalty without totally bankrupting yourself. Because, let’s be real, being a princess shouldn’t break the bank.
Queen Elizabeth II
Smells Like: Aldehydes, Jasmine, Neroli, Sandalwood
The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan
Smells Like: Bluebell, Persimmon & White Musk
Alright, so Meghan Markle’s go-to scent is Jo Malone London’s Wild Bluebell Cologne. It’s basically a nature lover’s dream, bottling up the whole fresh and dewy vibe of spring bluebells. Picture this: crisp, green leaves mixed with a dash of warming cloves. This scent is like the cool girl at the party – effortlessly chic and totally original. It’s not trying too hard; it’s just casually giving you that boujee floral finish that screams expensive taste. Floral fantasy, achieved.
King Charles III
Smells Like: a delightful blend of woody & citrus notes
In Prince Harry’s juicy 2023 tell-all “Spare,” he spilled the royal tea on King Charles’ serious sniff game. Apparently, Papa Charles is basically a scent detective – always sniffing everything from food to roses to even their hair. Harry’s convinced he was a bloodhound in another life. But hey, can you blame the guy for being obsessed with scents (or dogs)? Especially when he’s dousing himself in the royal elixir known as Dior Eau Sauvage Eau de Parfum.
This fragrance is the real deal – it’s like a flowery symphony with a hint of badassery, like pepper or gunpowder. Straight outta Paris, because where else would a king’s favorite scent be made? Charles isn’t holding back with this stuff – he’s slathering it on cheeks, neck, and even his shirt. It’s his signature scent, and you can bet it’s leaving a regal trail wherever he goes.
