  • Prince William’s beautiful bride wore a £70 Illuminum scent to walk down the aisle

    On Wednesday last week, the world watched as florists ferried thousands of tiny flowers into Westminster Abbey, in preparation for William and Kate’s Royal Wedding. But while the blooms were filling the space with a delicious floral scent, Kate turned her attention to another task – her wedding day fragrance.

    According to reports, the former Miss Middleton chose a delicate White Gardenia scent to wear as she walked down the aisle, by little known brand, Illuminum.

    The small British fragrance brand’s White Gardenia Petals by Illuminum – said to be a favourite with Kate – is described by noses as ‘fragrant as a vase of white flowers quivering in the breeze by an open window, this is a delicate and nuanced scent.’

    The simple scent costing £70 is said to feature notes of coconut, ylang, ylang, jasmine, and Amber wood, combined for a ‘capricious and light bouquet.’
