Unlike a wedding dress with a five-meter veil, the Duchess of Sussex prefers scents without a noticeable train, sitting close to the skin. Which ones, says Marina Gribova, perfume columnist for Bazaar.ru.
We have been convinced more than once that Meghan Markle has good taste in choosing clothes. She prefers win-win outfits of a rather laconic cut (especially after meeting Prince Harry), while looking fashionable. Therefore, when we found out about her favorite fragrances, we didn't have to be surprised.
Among her favorites are two colognes of the English brand Jo Malone London: the floral Wild Bluebell collected from bells, lilies of the valley and rose hips and Wood Sage & Sea Salt, which has absorbed the smell of the coast, sand, pebbles and coastal snags soaked in salt. Both fragrances are light, freedom-loving and natural, completely devoid of gourmet notes so popular in recent years.
Also among the favorites of Meghan Markle is another fragrance that evokes thoughts of the endless coastal expanses - Côte d'Azur (from French “Cote d'Azur”) from Oribe. This brand is known primarily among professionals for hair care products. It was the popularity of the smell of these products with customers that led the owners to the idea of creating a perfume analogue. Pierre Wolfe and Jerome Epinette undertook to bring it to life. The latter, by the way, is famous for such works for Byredo as La Tulipe and Bal d'Afrique. Côte d'Azur opens with notes of fresh lemon, black currant, Calabrian bergamot and Sicilian orange. Then there are floral notes of tuberose, blue cyclamen and white jasmine, and the base consists of sandalwood, vetiver and amber.
In addition, before the wedding, the couple turned to Floris London, one of the oldest English perfume companies and a longtime supplier of the British royal court, with a request to create an individual perfume for this memorable occasion. It is known to be reminiscent of Bergamotto Positano, a commercially available Floris London fragrance built around citrus, marine and woody notes loved by the new Duchess of Sussex.
Well, we can assume that the trend for "nude" fragrances has every chance to quickly gain momentum among fans of Meghan Markle's style.
