King’s Salute by Grossmith is a luxurious fragrance and a celebration of His Majesty the King’s passion for plants and gardening while renewing Grossmith’s historic connections to lavender. Thyme and lavender are found in abundance at His Majesty’s Highgrove garden and this wonderful blend is an ode to these loved scents.
King’s Salute eau de parfum opens with a bright burst of bergamot and elemi, with a touch of blackcurrant and black pepper for a hint of spice. The heart of the fragrance is a blend of lavender, lavandin, thyme, iris, and cardamom. At the base of the fragrance, oakmoss, amber, cashmeran accord, and musk combine to create a warm, rich finish that lingers on the skin.

Grossmith is one of Great Britain's oldest fragrance houses, founded in London in 1835. In 1940, the company had to close due to the war, but after second cousin Simon Brooke accidentally found the handwritten books containing the original formulas years later, he decided to revive the house. The three iconic fragrances (Hasu-no-Hana, Phul-Nana, Shem-el-Nessim) were adjusted slightly for the modern world. Apart from the classics, their modern fragrances are also greatly appreciated all over the world.
More from Grossmith
A traditional fougère is characterized by citrus top notes, an aromatic heart of lavender, roses or geranium that lay on a bed of oak moss and hay smelling coumarin. The name Fougère stems from the original perfume Fougère Royale, created in 1882 by the iconic perfumer Houbigant. As Houbigant said at the time, "if God had given ferns a scent, they would have smelled like Fougère Royale."
