KING CHARLES LAUNCHES HIS NEW FRAGRANCE.

 

Not providing the link, but the article is in today's Instyle dot com.

 

 

Move over Ariana Grande, Kylie Jenner, and Jennifer Lopez because there is a new celebrity beauty brand in the works. King Charles is joining the slew of A-listers to create fragrances, and if smelling like an elderly British monarch with unimaginable riches is of interest to you, then the king's new scent is right up your alley.

Ha ha, I love that description of the fragrance!

"smelling like an elderly British monarch with unimaginable riches" Makes you want to run right out and buy it, doesn't it?

Re: KING CHARLES LAUNCHES HIS NEW FRAGRANCE.

Well, it's actually Truefitt & Hill who have launched this fragrance for men, not King Charles (it sounds lovely, IMO).

 

Here's more about it:

 

The Highgrove collection is deeply inspired by the enchanting landscape of Highgrove Gardens, the beloved private home of Their Majesties King Charles III and Queen Camilla. The magnificent Cedar of Lebanon, once a central feature of these gardens, serves as the muse for this unique collection.

 

Highgrove Splash continues this tradition with exceptional packaging. It features a segment of a watercolour of The Cedar Tree, Highgrove by HM King Charles III, used with kind permission from The King’s Foundation. The design is enhanced by the iconic Highgrove logo and complemented by a soothing palette of soft greens, paying homage to the natural beauty of Highgrove Gardens.

 

We are honoured to support The King’s Foundation, donating 10% of net sales of the Highgrove Collection to this worthy cause. His Majesty is the Royal Founding President of The King’s Foundation, an organisation inspired by his vision and values. The Foundation builds and supports communities where people, places, and the planet coexist harmoniously.

 

The charity offers educational courses to nearly 15,000 students annually, health and wellbeing programmes for around 2,000 people each year, and spearheads placemaking and regeneration projects in the UK and overseas. Many of the Foundation’s pioneering educational programmes in traditional craft skills take place at Highgrove’s Barley Court and Street Farm workshops, adjacent to the gardens.

The description is:

I wonder if that is one of his paintings on the bottle.   He is an accomplished art in oils.

@NYwoman - Yes, it is one of his watercolors, used by permission.  (See my post above.)

Thought for sure there would be some Old Spice notes in there? 😄

The bottle and the packaging are beautiful. Charles has some lovely landscapes and paintings of Balmoral and other castles.

I thought he worked exclusively in watercolors, but I could be mistaken.
