Prince William and Kate Middleton's first anniversary is next Sunday, April 29. Let's take a break from speculating about whether the Duchess is knocked up and concentrate on something of olafactory importance: her perfume. Fortum & Mason, the British brand most beloved for their tea blends, has announced that they were the makers of Kate's wedding day fragrance, Illuminum White Gardenia Petals Perfume. The fragrance contains notes of lily of the valley, jasmine, gardenia, and other appropriately white flowers, and is now available to commoners—at least the ones who are cool with dropping £70 (about $112) for a small bottle.
