Grossmith London - Betrothal - Parfum
Love is in the air with Betrothal’s feminine floral bouquet, resting on a rich sensual base. Betrothal is a magical, resolutely modern recreation of a scent made for a Princess who became Queen of England. A romantic, fresh floral combining Rose de Mai and Jasmine from Grasse: the finest materials - fit for a modern Princess.
A special perfume, Betrothal, was produced to celebrate the wedding in July 1893 of Princess May of Teck and Prince George (Prince of Wales and Duke of York).
They subsequently became King George V and Queen Mary, the grandparents of Queen Elizabeth II. One of the most popular of the Grossmith scents Betrothal was available for over fifty years.
Classified as a “Floral Bouquet” the materials brought together for the original formulation include Rose, Jasmine, Narcissus, Geranium, Hyacinth, Bergamot, Ylang, Musk and Orris. The original formula and examples of the scent were used as the basis for the new, modern version of Betrothal to celebrate the Royal Wedding of HRH Prince William of Wales and Miss Catherine Middleton.
