She may be an English rose, but she smells like Orange Blossom. According to multiple sources, Kate Middleton’s signature scent is the citrusy floral from London based perfumer Jo Malone.
The scent is described as “a shimmering garden oasis,” with notes of clementine flower, orange blossom, and water lily, with undertones of orris and balsamic vetiver.
As noted in Hello last month, Kate loves the scent so much that she integrated it into her 2011 wedding to Prince William, lighting several of the Orange Blossom candles throughout Westminster Abbey. Of course, if you want to follow suit, you better be ready to open your wallet: It’s definitely on the luxury end at $65, or $65 to $135 for a bottle of the fragrance.
As for everyone’s favorite soon-to-be member of the royal clan, Meghan Markle, she’s also a fan of Jo Malone products, the article states. However, she counts Wood Sage & Sea Salt cologne as one of her favorites. The scent’s description suggests we “escape the everyday along the windswept shore. Waves breaking white, the air fresh with sea salt and spray.” Additional notes include a mineral scent reminiscent of the “rugged cliffs,” as well as the woody earthiness of sage—sounds perfect for a California native relocating to the windswept shores of the British Isles. It’s also $65 for the candle with a 45-hour burn time, or $65 to $135 for the fragrance.
Jo Malone does sell travel size candles for $35, but sadly, not in either of the royal scents.
