Revealed! The fragrances worn by some of the most iconic royal brides


Written by Katie Byrne


The perfect wedding day perfume will create a lasting memory of your celebration - so get inspired with these picks from some of the most iconic royal brides

 

Kate Middleton wore… White Gardenia Petals by Illuminum

In fact, the Daily Mail reports every bottle of the delicate floral fragrance sold out within mere minutes of it being named. According to online listings, the coveted perfume is 'reminiscent of a vase of white flowers', with an opening hint of coconut and subsequent top notes of bergamot, jasmine, white gardenia and ylang ylang.

A quick search on Google shows the fragrance is still largely unavailable - although there are a couple of eBay listings, if you're feeling brave... However, other scents from the 16-piece Illuminum collection are available to buy here.
