The upcoming May 19 royal wedding of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will have an official scent as is royal tradition. British Fragrance brand Floris London is said to be creating a special bespoke scent for the royal couple. The fragrance will be inspired by their Bergamotto Di Positano perfume, which smells like bergamot, citrus, vanilla, ginger and has green tea undertones. 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 and holds a royal warrant from Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Charles. Floris produce a new perfume every year for the Queen’s birthday and also created the scent ‘Wedding Bouquet’ for Prince William and Duchess Kate’s wedding in 2011. Unfortunately, Harry and Meghan’s perfume won’t be part of the brand’s public offerings nor will it be mass produced, but rather only included in their private collection.
Creating a bespoke scent for your wedding isn’t only limited to the royal family, you too can . Adding a special scent to your day can help capture memories and create a special touch for you and your guests. Your chosen fragrance can be diffused throughout the wedding venue, used to create wedding favours and even to scent your personalized wedding invitation.
Our sense of smell is one of the strongest senses we possess and is connected to the same part of the brain where our memories and emotions are processed, which is why scent is well known for triggering memories. So why not scent your special day with memories?
