And why Neroli is Queen Victoria's Favourite?
In an era of arranged royal marriages in the 18th century, the mutual interest and love between the young Queen and her Prince was highly fortunate and romantic, and not at least admirable to look back at.
After their first meeting as young adults they were introduced to each other by their older family members, and Queen Victoria was swept of her feet by Albert’s many attractive features, and secretly described her love in private diaries. The relationship kept evolving despite their distance, and the two kept exchanging letters to one another between England and Germany over a long period of time, all of which caused a blossoming romance and the start of a relationship that would turn out to be one of the most memorable in history.
In 1839, the pair were reunited for Albert’s visit to Britain, and after only a couple of days spent together at the Queen’s residential Windsor, Victoria proposed to Albert. Although Albert deeply wished to ask the Queen for her hand himself, he knew he could not do so, but he greatly accepted her proposal.
At their engagement, Albert commissioned an orange blossom brooch for his bride-to-be, a symbolic gift expressing true love in an era of arranged royal marriages.
Victoria in turn adorned herself in orange blossom at their marriage, by wearing a unique orange blossom inspired headdress at their wedding on February 10th 1840 in St James’s Palace chapel, London.
The orange blossom became an emblem for the royal couple, forming many gifts from Albert to Victoria.
William Sparks Thomson, the founder of The Crown Perfumery, created a scented custom-made corsets for Queen Victoria with orange blossom, an ode to her favourite scent inspired by her love for her husband. Queen Victoria and Prince Albert and their illustrious court were among the Crown Perfumery’s most renowned customers, and the pair had perfumes created as gifts for one another as a symbol of their mutual adoration.
The elegant and unassuming Orange Blossom flower became not only a symbol for the royal couple but started a trend for love stories all over the world.
