Perfume for Queen’s diamond jubilee – The Guardian

November 26, 2012

According to The Guardian:

With compounds extracted from across the Commonwealth, a unique scent has been created especially for the Queen to mark her diamond jubilee.

The chemist and perfumer Angela Stavrevska… said: “The blooming bouquet at the heart of the fragrance combines the freshness of lily-of-the-valley with classic touches of rose, Indian jasmine oil and heady, exotic Indian tuberose oil. Warmth at the heart is provided by a subtle spice accord of Indian black pepper, Jamaican pimento leaf and Sri Lankan cinnamon leaf oils whilst the enveloping base combines sweet amber, Australian sandalwood oil and tonka bean with clean vetiver, musks and patchouli.”
