Default Title

West Indian Limes Cologne

Truefitts’ first citrus fragrances were originally formulated in the 1870's and quickly became a favourite of Queen Victoria as well as the gentleman and ladies of her court. The Imperial Bouquet was specifically blended for Queen Victoria by Truefitts’ perfumers in 1876 to celebrate her being crowned Empress of India. It was a floral fougere with zesty and exotic top notes of citrus and orange blossom from which the present day West Indian Limes fragrance evolved. A refreshing, effervescent and zesty fragrance, in which lively top notes of Lime, Verbena and Bergamot are combined with a heart of Lavender, Orange, Blossom and Clove and a powdery base note. Spray-on and refresh.

Origins

Since Christopher Columbus discovered the West Indies and claimed
them for Spain in 1492, the Spaniards and later the Danes, Dutch, English
and French gained great wealth from sugar and tobacco grown in the
West Indies and took delight in the native exotic fruits, plants and also
spices for their unusual fragrances. The delicate, but powerful
fragrance emitted from the leaves, flowers and citrus fruits encouraged
their use in a variety of infusions and soon became popular in the Royal
Courts of Europe and England.
