This popular perfume is Kate Middleton's signature scent — get it now at Nordstrom
Kate Middleton is many things: a royal, a mom, a mental health advocate and, of course, a style icon. In fact, the Princess of Wales is an influencer without even trying. From her beloved Longchamp tote to the Superga sneakers she sports everywhere, anything she touches (or wears) becomes a bestseller. And now we finally have a fragrance to add to that list of 'It' girl must-haves: it's Orange Blossom Cologne by Jo Malone London, and it's Kate Middleton's perfume of choice.
The bouquet in this perfume is pretty distinct. White lilac has a sweet yet spicy element, and clementine is citrusy. In addition to smelling fresh and fruity, Orange Blossom Cologne has earthy undertones courtesy of an orris wood base and balsamic vetiver, known for its almost grass-like aroma.
According to those in the know, Kate is often awash in this natural, refreshing scent, which no doubt adds to her dignified aura. In fact, it was Coco Chanel who said, "No elegance is possible without perfume. It is the unseen, unforgettable, ultimate accessory." So if a more sophisticated vibe is what you're after, follow your nose. Even the bottle this fragrance comes in is stately.
But this perfume is not just for princesses. Nordstrom reviewers are also heaping praise on Orange Blossom Cologne by Jo Malone London. "This scent is happiness in a bottle. It is a fresh, light, citrus floral that stays true for hours, just softening. It's lush and juicy. Wearing it for only a few days, I've gotten numerous compliments," wrote a newfound fan.
Another devoted customer said, "I am so blown away by this fragrance...It's almost as if you're leaning directly into an actual orange blossom/honeysuckle flower and breathing in only the best, most refined and lovely part of the aroma. It's mind boggling how the fragrance can be so precisely orange blossom like and be so airy and beautiful."
Another shopper stated simply, "If heaven had a fragrance, this would be it." So raise your perfume game to an ethereal level with this fragrance fit for a royal. Orange Blossom Cologne by Jo Malone London is $80 for a 1-ounce bottle. A 3.4-ounce bottle is $155.
