Guerlain, the perfume royalty of our time is bringing back something from their past archives. Royal Extract II by Guerlain is back in 2020 as the brand has reprised its long-established partnership with Harrods. The name is a purposeful homage to perfumer Pierre-François-Pascal, having both founded the French House and created his Royal Extract of Flowers back in 1828. The tribute is fantastically done by housing the fragrance in the iconic Guerlain “bee” bottle, and in the attractive Harrods colors of dark green and gold. The nose behind this unisex fragrance is Thierry Wasser. With top notes of pink pepper and petitgrain, middle notes of orange blossom, cedar, and hyacinth, and base notes of moss, galbanum, and vetiver this intoxicating perfume will take you on a journey through a wild forest that perfectly balances the two worlds of floral and fruity.
The gorgeous Royal Extract II is available in parfum concentration in a 125ml bottle at Harrods for a not-so-cheap price of £450 ($560).
