The Royal Wedding caused quite a media-frenzy as everyone wanted to know every detail about Kate Middleton’s wedding dress, makeup and hairstyle as well as what perfume she wore on the big day.
As soon as Catherine, The Duchess of Cambridge stepped out of the Goring Hotel in her breathtaking wedding dress, people gave their verdict: perfect. But the mystery of the fragrance still persisted until finally, it’s been revealed that Catherine opted for a British perfume brand that surprisingly isn’t very famous.
According to Daily Mail the perfume is White Gardenia Petals by Illuminum, a pleasant floral fragrance that just enchants your senses. Illuminum describes the perfume as:
“As fragrant as a vase of white flowers, quivering in the breeze by an open window, this is a delicate and refined perfume. The top notes of Lilly evoked a tropic seaside location, whilst the heart notes of White Gardenia, Muguet and Jasmine Breeze bring a trio of white flowers into play. Amber Wood underscores this light and capricious bouquet.”
The fragrance packaging is simplistic and elegant at the same time, features given by a frosted contemporary cubic glass bottle and a boxed shaped metallic cap. Illuminum has been created by celebrity hair stylist Michael Boardi in 2020, so it’s a relatively new brand, but not one that is overlooked by celebs. The perfume retails for about £70 for a 50ml bottle and since Kate wore this fragrance on her wedding day it’s probably going to sell like hotcakes.
