Spritz for a princess: William and Catherine fragrances


Smells like ... Queen spirit?

German perfumer Kim Weisswange is claiming the royal family has commissioned her to design fragrances to be worn by Prince William and Kate Middleton on their wedding day, BellaSugar reports.

Dubbed William and Catherine, respectively, the scents will be presented in black and white bottles adorned with a heart-shaped locket featuring the royal couple's photos.

"William's is a dynamic scent, sporty and direct," the Hamburg-based Weisswange said. "Kate's has traces of rose essence and magnolia. When I got the call [for the order] my heart stood still. It is a dream commission that comes only once in a lifetime. Of course I am not charging them. This is a great honor for me."

Not so fast, says the royal family. Officials at Clarence House tell the Evening Standard that Weisswange offered her services to design a fragrance but was rebuffed. They maintain that the scents were not formally commissioned by the royals.

Throwing yet another wrench into the proceedings is perfumer Clive Christian, who tells WWD  he will be gifting the couple with his-and-hers versions of his No. 1 Perfume, valued at $11,000 and presented in a case embroidered with the royal coat of arms.

So while it remains to be seen whether Will and Kate will wear Weisswange's scents, we commoners stand a good chance. The fragrances are set to go into production after the April 29 nuptials.

Meanwhile, Middleton may be ditching a traditional tiara for flowers in her hair.
