You could say that these scents reign supreme

When members of the royal family wear something out in public, or mention their appreciation for a brand or product, it is a sure-shot sell-out. Indeed, this is a testament to the power they yield to put a brand or trend on the map.

But have you ever wondered what do the royals stash on their vanities? One TikTok user named Perfume TikTok compiled some of their favorites. Read on to find out their picks.

Queen Elizabeth II
While there hasn’t been any official confirmation, reports say that Queen Elizabeth II wore White Rose by Floris—a floral blend with spicy carnation—for her wedding day.

She also reportedly wears Guerlain L’Heure Bleue, a spicy citrus with a powdery dry down. It’s been a classic for the fragrance house ever since the scent was created in 1912.

Kate Middleton
According to reports, Kate Middleton opted for White Gardenia Petals by a small, independent British brand called Illuminum for her wedding day in 2011.

With a light blend of lily, jasmine, and gardenia, it’s a delicate scent that instantly uplift one’s mood. It’s also difficult to get your hands on, thanks to the so-called “Kate Effect,” coupled with the fact it no longer seems to be in production.

Meghan Markle
Markle is a big fragrance fan, telling publications she owns not one, but three signature scents. “Fragrance is my favorite thing. So much so that if I leave the house and I don’t put any on, I’ll turn around and go back home,” she said in an interview with The Express.

Markle said she loves Oribe Côte d’Azur Eau de Parfum, a floral pick with notes of sandalwood and fresh fruit. She also alternates between Jo Malone Wild Bluebell, which is a spicy-floral composition, and Jo Malone Wood Sage and Sea Salt, a popular scent with aromatic-spicy formula.

Princess Diana

A proud Dior fan, Diana was said to favor Diorissimo, a feminine floral scent with a strong Lily of the Valley heart. She also liked Penhaligon’s Bluebell, which has notes of citrus, hyacinth, and jasmine.
