But now, another glorious perfume was made to honor the Queen. It is the creation of the Royal Society of Chemistry - a Diamond jubilee Christmas present.
The perfume, which was presented to the Queen at Buckingham Palace was created with her reign and interests in mind representing the many facets of our Queen’s personality Named "Adamas" (diamond in Greek), it is a green floral fragrance with modern twists.
Perfumers Stephene Bengana and Ange Stavrevka wanted to reflect the impressive length of time her Majesty has been on the throne by using fragrances that were characteristically worn at the time of her coronation.
"The Royal inspired perfume has a light sweet scent formed from the peach and pear notes combined with Lilly of the valley, rose, Indian Jasmine and Tuberose oils, with Canadian Cedar Leaf oil adding a deeper, slightly warmer edge to the fragrance. Jamaican Pimento Leaf, Sri Lankan Cinnamon leaf and Australian Sandalwood oils also help form the warm subtle base behind the perfume." However, it has no obvious relation to the original Guerlain perfume made for the Queen. Add to this formula the two botanic roses depicted in the famous 15th century dynastic battle and you will obtain the perfect modern perfume which embodies the feminine essence today, a royal choice. (English roses are not equal to the flowers known in France, but they appear in the old Guerlain formulae of the XIXth century).
