You've seen the pictures, you've heard the stories - now we know how the royal wedding was scented.

The luxury Parisian fragrance house Diptyque, which is best-known for its beautifully-scented candles and room sprays, have revealed they were responsible for scenting the space in St George's Chapel for the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

Diptyque was founded in 1961 in Paris, and remains one of the leading luxury brands for home fragrance.

Diptyque supplied a selection of fresh spring floral fragrances personally chosen by The Duke and Duchess of Sussex.


Candles and room sprays helped scent the spaces where Their Royal Highnesses prepared for their special day, and the fragrances were also used to enhance the beautiful surroundings of the chapel.

"We are extremely proud to have been chosen to scent such an important moment for Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex," Fabienne Mauny, Global Managing Director at Diptyque Paris, told the Telegraph.

"We were touched to have been part of such a significant day, made more special as one of our founders, Desmond Knox Leet, was British. We hope the fragrance contributed to such a memorable day."

The standard size of Diptyque candles retail for $90 at Mecca Cosmetica, while the brand also have large "indoor and outdoor" scented candles in earthenware - made in the famous Virebent pottery - which retails for $415. These candles are often used when filling a larger events space.

The new Duke and Duchess of Sussex aren't the first royal couple to elegantly scent their big day. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge also did on their wedding day back in 2011.

Westminster Abbey was scented by Jo Malone, the British fragrance house, reportedly with the Duchess of Cambridge's personal favourite scent, Orange Blossom.
