Neroli (Orange Blossom) Zitrische Notes
Ambra Note, Sandalwood
Creed – Neroli Sauvage
The most notorious trendsetter of his time, Edward, Duke of Windsor, noted for his elegant and perfect style commissioned this perfume at the beginning of the 20th century.Edward was born in London in 1894. He was considered, due to his love for the military and his social commitment as a popular Crown Prince and successor to the throne. At one of her parties, Edward in 1931 met the vivacious American Mrs. Wallis Simpson. After the death of his father in January 1936 he mounted the throne as Edward VIII. When Wallis in August accompanied the king on one of his cruises and in October when her divorce finally came through, this led to large concern in the British cabinet and in the Anglican church, because a civil and doubly divorced woman (also an American!) was utterly unacceptable as a future Queen.
The king had to decide either love or the throne – and decided for love. Edward received the title Duke of Windsor and married Wallis Simpson in June 1937. Edward was allowed to experience the golden age of the wild twenties, in which after years of war, hunger and inflation a new desire articulated itself to live. In dance halls, with dance teas in the afternoon or at home to the music from a Gramophone or radio one could exuberantly enjoy life. This exuberance and joy of life reflects itself in Neroli sauvage, a scent with the notes of wild orange blossom and lime. The scent was exclusively reserved for the Royal house until in 1994, under the name Neroli sauvage, it became freely available.
