Floris Est. 1730 wanted to partake of the upcoming revelry on April 29th 2011 celebrating the marriage of Prince William to Catherine Middleton (you are officially not allowed to use the short form "Kate" anymore.) What better way for them but to do so by putting out a new perfume called Wedding Bouquet.
"Created exclusively to celebrate the marriage of Prince William to Miss Catherine Middleton, Wedding Bouquet draws inspiration from the most acclaimed Floris wedding fragrances of the past whilst introducing a modern twist using a white flower theme."...
The house calls the fragrance "pretty" describing a bouquet of lily of the valley, jasmine, orange blossom, and stephanotis, the latter a somewhat coarser jasmine-y scent to my nose yet agreeable in its pungency.
Each flower is presented as having special symbolic meaning using the model of the language of flowers. Jasmine is eternal love, lily of the valley reads as "You have made my life complete", orange blossom signifies innocence and marriage, stephanotis promises happiness in marriage.
A timely release it is also just before Valentine's Day.
Price: £90 for 100 ml of Eau de Parfum
