Want to smell like royalty? It will cost lots -- of both money and waiting time. It's been revealed that Duchess Catherine wore the perfume White Gardenia Petals by Illuminum on her April 29 wedding day, Clarence House has confirmed. The bottle, available in both 50ml and 100ml, costs $140 and $190, respectively.
But don't run a Google Shopping search just yet -- the little-known British brand has sold out of their supply of the scent through the summer, as noted on the brand's approved North American e-tailer, LuckyScent.com.
The Daily Mail reported that the moment the news broke, bottles were flying off shelves. "There's been a phenomenal response across the world," Illuminum spokesman Michael Donovan told the paper. "Orders have come in from dozens of different countries, but most of our customers have come from the U.S."
So what exactly will your nose be missing out on until the demand for the perfume is met? Imagine the top note of Lily, heart notes of White Gardenia, Muguet, and Jasmine, and a base note of Amber Wood.
