Grossmith will launch Betrothal in April. Like the brand's three 2009 releases (Phul-Nana, Shel-el-Nessim, and Hasu-no-Hana), Betrothal is a reworked fragrance from the back catalog; it was reportedly created in 1893 to mark the engagement of Queen Mary (see: Mary of Teck) and is brought back now to mark the engagement of Kate Middleton.1
The notes feature citrus, rose, jasmine, ylang-ylang, neroli, vetiver, warm woods and vanilla.
1. You know, Catherine Middleton, the one who is about to marry Prince William? Just kidding, sort of — I would guess most people know who she is. But are they making a really big deal of this in the UK? Because it seems to be generating considerably less interest than I expected in the US. Or I'm just not paying enough attention.
