Yardley London Royal Diamond

This weekend there were flags and bunting aplenty and great celebrations to commemorate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee in recognition of her 60 year reign. As a family we had great fun watching the Flotilla on the Thames, taking part in a Village Jubilee Party enjoying a hog roast, Pimm's, 99 flake and tuning into BBC1 to watch the Jubilee Concert.

My son wore red, white and blue clothing and Union Jack socks, while I painted my nails blue with a statement nail adorned with 'diamonds' in my own tribute to the Queen.

Royal Diamond is the newest launch from Yardley London created and inspired by this momentous occasion.. The scent is the company's first floral bouquet fragrance. Described as a sophisticated, sparkling fragrance opening with a touch of pear and bergamot surrounded by a subtle note of honey (top notes), with a delicate romantic floral bouquet at its heart of rose, peony and lily of the valley (heart notes), enhanced with base notes of soft wood and vanilla.

Royal Diamond is an appealing fresh Summer scent which with the influence of pear bears a passing similarity to Jo Malone's English Pear and Freesia, which also has a woody base... As that is one of my favourite scents this was also bound to appeal.

An excellent scent befitting of the Diamond Jubilee, Royal Diamond by Yardley London costs £9.99 for 50ml  (Eau De Toilette)

  1. I really want to try this out - I think I will have to treat myself xx

  2. Ooh, my favourite perfume is Jo Malone English Pear and Freesia but it's just so expensive-was thinking that it might be similar when reading your description and then you beat me to it!! For a tenner it would be rude not to check it out!!!

  3. I wondered about this, so thanks B for a very timely review.
