The future King has teamed up with Penhaligon to launch the new fragrance inspired by the “magnificently fragrant” summers at the royal getaway. According to the Highgrove Gardens website, the perfume will reflect the smells and nature of the gardens.

They said: “Highgrove Bouquet is a new scent inspired by and created with HRH The Prince of Wales, in part, a tribute to the magnificently fragrant summers at Highgrove Gardens.

“It is a time when the odour of blossoming weeping silver lime fills the air, and Highgrove Gardens is full of its branches, with their blooming, uplifting, floral notes.

“A crisp, confident burst of warm energy opens the dance with vibrant lavender and geranium.

“As floral, powdery notes appear, a shroud of delicate yellow blossoms seem to fill the air, and to the mimosa, tuberose brings longevity and depth, a solar storm of rich delight.

“The restful, soothing base is a blend of elegance and sophistication from cedar woods and Orris.”

The scent includes geranium, lavender and hyacinth along with weeping lime, tuberose, cedar wood, orris fusion and musks.

A bottle of the perfume costs £151 with 10 percent of the proceeds going to The Prince’s Foundation.

The foundation is a charity established by the heir to the throne that offers a diverse range of education and training opportunities for people from all ages and backgrounds. 

These programs include traditional arts and craft skills to architecture and design, science, engineering, horticulture and hospitality.

Prince Charles reflected on his love for horticulture last year on the BBC radio programme The Poet Laureate Has Gone to His Shed.

He started by telling presenter Simon Armitage about how gardening allowed him to bond with Princess Anne.

He said: “My sister and I had a little vegetable patch in the back of some border somewhere.

“We had great fun trying to grow tomatoes rather unsuccessfully and things like that.”

The royal went on to describe the influence of a “wonderful” royal gardener called Mr Nutbeam.

He said: “He was splendid and he helped us a bit, my sister and I with the little garden we had.”

The Prince also went on to discuss his project to turn the Sandringham Estate gardens in Norfolk into a “fully organic operation”.

He said: “There’s nothing to beat is there, I think, [than] eating what you have grown?

“This is another reason why I always feel it is so important to find ways of encouraging children to grow vegetables and things at school.”
