Recently, we had the exclusive announcement of Michael Boadi’s new niche line, Illuminum, which came into the spotlight owing to the specific concept and high-quality compositions. You had a chance to enjoy reading the interview with Michael Boadi, an artist, designer and perfumer who recently came into the center of media attention.

Michael’s first successful perfume line is Boadicea The Victorious, which is no longer owned by him, even though he keeps creating perfumes for this collection. The work of this artist not only came to the center of attention of perfume lovers but also celebrities, including Madonna, U.S. President Obama, his wife, First Lady Michelle Obama, and freshly married Prince William and Kate Middleton (now the Duchess of Cambridge).

His new line Illuminum contains 16 fragrances, one of which is a hot topic in the last couple of days! It is the Illuminum White Gardenia Petals fragrance, full of chastity, femininity and grace that framed the picture of the perfect wedding of Prince William and Kate—the Duchess of Cambridge. "I am both thrilled and honored that Kate chose to wear White Gardenia Petals," Boadi said in a statement.

Of several fragrances from this collection that I had the chance to try during a meeting with Michael Boadi in Milan this spring, a couple of wonderful scents truly stand out. The White Gardenia Petals is certainly among them, but this fragrance is at the moment very difficult to obtain. The Rose Oud is distinguished by the beauty, tenderness and subtlety of oud and roses, where none of the ingredients dominates but rather complements the others. The Bergamot Blossom, very intense, bitter and sparkling, will certainly delight men. All fans of fragrances based on intense aromas of oud should definitely try the Scarlet Oud edition!

 


White Gardenia Petals
is a perfect choice that really suits the charming and feminine Kate, her beautiful wedding dress and her grace. The notes of this fragrance highlight the refined and very fresh breeze of gardenia, which is a guiding scent of the composition. Unpretentious gardenia is embellished in the heart with a fine trace of coconut, ylang-ylang, jasmine and lily of the valley, laid on the base of amber wood. The fragrance is available as 50 ml and 100 ml EDP.
Michael Boadi announces that White Gardenia Petals at the moment isn’t available anywhere in the world and that the waiting list for the purchase of this fragrance is three months!!! If you’re interested in this issue, the waiting lists are available at a couple of online stores, including the Lucky Scent!
 

The wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton (Duchess of Cambridge) was accompanied by the creations of British designers. A wedding dress was created by Sarah Burton of the house Alexander McQueen, the perfume of choice is also the work of British designer Michael Boadi, and home fragrances are creations of the niche house Jo Malone.

At the request of the lovely Kate, who desired her favorite spring fragrances, scented candles by Jo Malone: Orange Blossom, Grapefruit and Lime Basil & Mandarin, were used to refresh and perfume re-decorated VIP bathrooms in Westminster Abbey.

We wish a lot of luck and success to Michael Boadi and his team of associates!

I was very interested to read that this was supposedly chosen by Kate Middleton for her wedding.

I have read elsewhere that she wore Creed Fleurissimo, which was the perfume Prince Rainier had specially designed for Princess Grace at their wedding.

Now this is something absolutely a hot news for everyone that MB's White Gardenia petals perfume falls short. Even those who are not into fragrances very much would sure be craving to have it in their fragrance wardrobes. Not to purchase at the moment but would love to read reviews from those who have already got their hands on it.
