There’s no denying the Duchess of Cambridge has well-established her signature beauty look. 

Whether it's her favourite shade of Bobbi Brown lipstick, her famous bouncy blow-dry or dewy complexion, her style is polished and perfected wherever she goes. 

But if you ever wondered what scent she likes to spritz we've tracked down Kate Middleton's perfume, so you too can smell like royalty.


What scent does Kate Middleton wear?

According to Vogue, one of the duchess's all-time favorite scents is none other than Jo Malone Orange Blossom, a firm favorite among floral fragrance fans.

With its top notes of clementine flower, middle notes of white lilac and water lily and base notes of orriswood, Jo Malone Orange Blossom is elegant and classy—everything you'd expect from Kate Middleton's fragrance.

The unisex scent was created by Jean Claude Delville in 2003 and according to Fragrantica, "was inspired with stay in the hotel Bel Air in Los Angeles." 

All Jo Malone fragrances can be combined with others of the same line. Jo Malone says that Orange Blossom can be combined with White Jasmine & Mint or with Blue Agava & Cacao.


What was Kate Middleton's wedding day perfume?

For her wedding day, however, the Duchess opted for something a little different with Illuminum's White Gardenia Petals, a delicate floral fragrance with notes of bergamot, lily and ylang-ylang.

Sadly, although the £125 fragrance is still listed on the brand's website, it is no longer produced—but we hope it'll make a comeback one day soon.

In a nod to Jo Malone Orange Blossom, her favorite daytime scent, Westminster Abbey was decked out with Orange Blossom candles for her wedding day. British Vogue reported that Jo Malone London had been asked to scent the wedding with 'a selection of candles, hand washes and lotions'.

Luckily Jo Malone has one size Orange Blossom candle available on their website with a burn time of 45 hours. Reviewers love the uplifting scent with one saying, "I light it almost every day. It smells amazing."


Kate's favourite scent is also available in body cream, hand wash and a hand lotion for the full floral experience.
