Smells Like Royal Wedding Spirit: Kate's White Gardenia Perfume & Scented Wedding Candles
May 4, 2011
White gardenia, jasmine, muguet and amber wood — that is what Kate Middleton smelled like on her wedding day. In case you were wondering, the Duchess of Cambridge was wearing this White Gardenia Petals by Illuminum ($140), a light fragrance from a small British fragrance brand. The perfume is sold out in England, and isn’t even available in the United States, but we found quite a few on eBay.
There is one scent from the royal wedding you can purchase today — Jo Malone candles. Westminster Abbey and the royal bathrooms featured candles, handwashes and lotions in Jo’s signature Orange Blossom, Grapefruit, and Lime, Basil & Mandarin. We love the Orange Blossom candle ($65) because it has a hint of water lily.
