Scented candles and room sprays enhanced the natural fragrance of the fresh floral arrangements throughout the chapel.
When Kate Middleton walked down the aisle to marry Prince William in 2011, guests sitting in the pews at Westminster Abbey were enveloped in the bright, citrus aroma of Middleton’s signature scent, Orange Blossom by Jo Malone. As per the bride’s request scented candles from the English brand were lit and placed throughout the abbey in Orange Blossom and other complimentary varieties including Grapefruit and Lime, Basil, and Mandarin.
Now we have learned that at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding this past weekend, it wasn’t just the gorgeous floral arrangements that delighted the noses of royals and Hollywood stars alike. Taking a page from her sister-in-law’s book, Markle also arranged for specific scents to fill the air. Parisian luxury fragrance brand Diptyque has announced that were chosen tickle the noses of the guests at this royal wedding. Harpers Bazaar has reported that the Duke and Duchess themselves chose a variety of springtime floral scents to perfume the air of the beautiful St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.

Diptyque hasn’t revealed the exact scents chosen by the happy couple but a wide variety of candles and room sprays by this French brand are available at many U.S. retailers. May we suggest the Gardenia or the Jasmin candles to capture similar summery floral smells to the ones that filled the chapel during the royal wedding.
These candles and others are available at Bloomingdales.
