Prince Charles launches perfume that smells of ‘blooming, uplifting, floral notes’

Prince Charles has launched his own perfume and it is an ode to one of his favourite places.

The royal, 73, has teamed up with storied British perfume house Penhaligon’s to launch a new perfume inspired by his gardens at Highgrove, his private residence in Gloucestershire, England.

At £152 a bottle, the perfume, called Highgrove Bouquet, is said to recall ‘magnificently fragrant summers’ at the estate, where the impressive established gardens are regularly open to the public in the summer months.

‘It is a time when the odour of blossoming weeping silver lime fills the air, and Highgrove Gardens is full of its branches, with their blooming, uplifting, floral notes,’ according to the gardens’ website, where the perfume is for sale.

‘A crisp, confident burst of warm energy opens the dance with vibrant lavender and geranium,’ explains the website of the perfume’s composition. ‘As floral, powdery notes appear, a shroud of delicate yellow blossoms seem to fill the air, and to the mimosa, tuberose brings longevity and depth, a solar storm of rich delight. The restful, soothing base is a blend of elegance and sophistication from cedar woods and Orris.’

Top Notes: Geranium, Lavender, Hyacinth
Middle Notes: Weeping lime headspace, French Mimosa, Tuberose
Base Notes: Cedarwood, Orris Fusion, Musks

The gardens are managed organically and sustainably in line with the Prince’s commitment to responsible environmental practices and receive more than 30,000 visitors a year.

Established in 1870, with two Royal Warrants and a reputation as one of England’s most iconic perfumeries, Penhaligon’s is well-known worldwide for its selection of high-end fragrances, bath, body and men’s grooming products.

10% of proceeds of the Prince’s Eau De Pafum will be donated to The Prince’s Foundation, the royal heir’s charity.
