Kate Middleton's favorite perfume brand has dropped major deals this Black Friday, cutting the prices on some of its best-loved scents.
From those elegant Kate Middleton dresses to her stunning hairdos, the future Queen almost never gets it wrong comes to her style.
The Duchess's fashion has become so iconic that she regularly influences shopping trends, with stocks of anything she's photographed wearing flying off the shelves in a matter of hours.
The appeal of her wardrobe—which includes both designer and high-street pieces—often lies in its relatability to the average woman. While Kate undeniably knows how to up the glamor for red carpet events (case in point, her recycled Royal Variety Jenny Packham dress), she's also famous for pulling off more informal looks at casual events.
The 39-year-old has been spotted in comfy attire on countless occasions throughout her royal service, often donning earthy pullovers and sensible footwear at outdoorsy or sporty engagements. If you're looking to emulate that British country style but need a little inspiration, Kate's puffer jacket is the perfect garment to get you started.
With so much frenzy surrounding the Duchess's closet, it's easy to forget about the smaller details of her image, such as her signature perfume. While royals are typically discouraged from spritzing themselves in fragrance for public engagements, they are completely free to indulge in their favorite scent on family occasions.
For those of you wondering what Kate's Middleton's favorite perfume is, it's been reported that the royal is a devout fan of the super-popular Jo Malone Orange Blossom. With its notes of clementine and water lily, the unisex fragrance, which retails at a steep £102 per 100ml, is the perfect match for the Duchess's gentle yet positive energy. Unfortunately, it hasn't been reduced in this weekend's giant sales—but many of its bestselling counterparts have.
Don't panic though—we've rounded up our top Jo Malone Black Friday deals to keep you going in the meantime. They may not be Kate's exact choice, but we're pretty sure she'd be happy with any one of these irresistible picks.
