King Charles III favourite cologne

With over a whopping 18million people tuning in to ITV to watch the Coronation on Saturday 6Th May 2023, we were curious to find out what King Charles III favourite cologne is.

Set at Westminster Abbey, the same place that saw our Queen, Elizabeth II, lay to rest, we watched the ceremony of our new King being crowned.

You don’t need to be a fan of the Royals or a big royalist to appreciate the work and effort into organising such a big event.

It was a very traditional affair that saw the Coronation taking place in a stunning location and saw a few changes from the original crowning in 1953 of our late Queen. In this current and shorter service, there were multiple faiths and cultures represented across the U.K

It was certainly a ceremony worth watching, even if you dipped in and out and watched Th highlights like myself.

Several of my clients had it showing on the TV in their homes so I was able to watch several parts of the day.

The Princess of Wales  looked as stunning as ever wearing an embroidered Ivory silk crêpe gown, designed by Alexander McQueen and deep blue silk satin floor length Coronation robe.

Topped with a headpiece that any young girl would be honoured to wear, she omitted elegance throughout.


We also have to mention Prince Louis of Wales. The pure joy that this cheeky chap brings to every occasion is what lifts a smile to everyone’s face.

From covering his ears when the Red Arrows flew over the palace on the late Queen’s birthday, to his gorgeous facial expressions that stole the show at the King’s Coronation.

The five-year old certainly knows how to entertain the crowds and we think he is simply adorable.

The layers of golden robe ( called the Supertunica) that the King was wearing was impressive and quite a weight to carry too.

In fact, it weighs around 2kg (4.4lb). A stunning piece of material that we could even see from the Kings face just how heavy it was, without the 17Th century St Edwards crown to wear too.

Made of solid gold, the crown weighs almost 5lb, with a collection of sapphires, rubies, tourmaline and garnets, surrounding a velvet cap and ermine band.

A stunning masterpiece that will always stand out in future generations. King Charles III was seen to be wearing a lighter version late on in the ceremony, which was the Imperial State Crown.


Christine Dior

There won’t be many of us that haven’t heard of Christian Dior, the French fashion couturier, born on 21st January 1905 who founded the company Dior on 16th December 1946.

They are one of the most iconic perfume and clothes fashion houses around today, creating their own unique style of clothing as well as producing some of the most famous fragrances in the world.

Many celebrities are known to wear their own scents as well as endorsing them.

Famous women such as Jennifer Aniston and Sienna Miller have also been known to wear the famous fashion house wardrobe.

After the death of Dior, in 1957, from a massive heart attack, it was left to another famous name in the fashion world, Yves St Laurent, to take over and keep the brand alive.

He was only 21 at the time, but was happy to carry on the legacy of Dior, until he was called to serve in 1960 for the French army so he was then released.

Marc Bohan replaced YSL, alongside other famous designers who introduced handbags and shoes to the world-famous fashion house.

Christian Dior prided himself in not only being a couturier, but also having a desire for the perfume industry and so he created his first perfume, Miss Dior in 1947.

In 2017, Dior reincarnated the original Miss Dior Eau de Parfum for women, a scent that is still hugely popular today. The American actress Natalie Portman has been the face of Miss Dior since 2010. The original Miss Dior perfume was a tribute to the designers sister, Catherine Dior.

We have covered several celebrities within the website and what their favourite scent is so once our King was crowned, I was curious to find out what scent our new heir to the throne likes to use.

Many famous faces have a signature scent and Charles is no exception.

Knowing just how big the fragrance house has become, it’s of little surprise that our King would choose one of Dior’s iconic fragrances as his signature scent.

Eau Sauvage by Dior is a gorgeous, citrus and aromatic scent for men that was released in 1966 and was the first fragrance for men from the House of Dior.

The fresh scent from this bottle gives a clean, lemon fragrance which balances out the woody and earthy notes that many men love.

The bottle has a style of royal about it with its gold grooved design and silver ‘belt’ and cap.

It certainly has a wonderful selection of fragrance notes that gives it a legendary feel and a crisp freshness that compliments its floral notes.

Many users have commented to say that it is a suitable unisex cologne, with a crisp, strong and soft woody scent as the base notes pop through.

This scent is suitable for the older man, ideal for everyday use, which fits perfectly for our king on his royal duties. Not to be confused by Dior Sauvage, a bottle with a similar name, that has more spicy and stronger fragrance notes.

      Hello Wallace,

      Absolutely, I think we are often fascinated with what perfumes and colognes celebrities wear on a day-to-day basis, even the ones that they don’t endorse themselves. 

      After watching our Coronation here in the UK, I was curious to find out what taste in fragrance our King has and he has picked a good choice and an affordable one too, unlike many celebrities and Royals.

      It is a very popular and wearable scent that will suit many males. Sometimes we forget how important it is to choose the right fragrance and how it plays a part in the way we express ourselves, the clothes we wear and our personality.

      Thank you for reading my article.

    Hi Louise, I definitely agree the perfume Christian Dior Eau Sauvage is the perfect fit for King Charles III with its classic, elegant and evergreen design, with its fresh scent of woody and earthy notes. I am just a 40-year-old bloke perfume enthusiast but would you recommend the perfume Eau Sauvage for me or maybe you have something more suitable for someone like me? I consider myself a tech-savvy guy starting to feel the so-called “mid-life crises” part of my life now.

      Hello Dominic,

      Yes the Dior Eau Sauvage is the perfect scent for the King. A classic fragrance that never goes out of fashion.

      You sound like a very modern man that would suit a very modern fragrance. There is no reason why Dior wouldn’t be a fit for you, but have you ever tried Tom Ford’s Lost Cherry?

      I love the versatility that this scent brings and with fragrance notes of black cherry, Tonka bean and almond, it has a warm and spicy feel that suits both men and women.

      Another favourite fragrance for men is Aventus by Creed. If you like more fruity notes with ginger and pink pepper and bass notes that include musk, birch and Tonka bean, I would definitely give this bottle a try.

      Did you know the FM WORLD sell designer inspired fragrances? You can buy any of the above and even try samples. We have around 80-90 scents for men and they contain 20% pure perfume oil so your fragrance lasts all day.

      You can take a look at the online shop here.

      Thanks for reading!

    This article really opened to me the world of fragrances in quite an enlightening way. 

    I do have few questions. You have written quite extensively on King Charles exquisite choice of taste, having chosen the Eau de Sauvage cologne as his signature scent. I would now definitely keep that on my list of gifts to treat a special friend of mine, and experience that Kingly scents of royalty around me 🙂

    I am curious though. You mention in your article some users have commented about the Eau de Sauvage being suitable as a unisex cologne. With the wide range of Dior perfumes for woman that is available, is there a specific one you would recommend that is an equivalent to the Eau De Sauvage, a perfume with a softer feminine tone, specifically for the ladies wanting to feel like a queen to their king :)?

    Someone have gifted me once with a very rare European unisex perfume and it was divine, but I still prefer a fragrance with a distinct feminine tone. So, I am wondering if Queen Camilla also have a specific signature scent that would be something we ladies may want to explore, something more complementary to the Eau de Sauvage?

      Hello Ruachal, 

      Absolutely! Dior’s Eau de Sauvage is hugely popular for so many men and a very wearable scent. Yes, some have said it could be suitable as a unisex fragrance, even though it hasn’t been created as one.

      These days, anything goes when it comes to fragrances and there are many women who actually prefer wearing male fragrances compared to the choice of women’s scents out there.

      I would say that Dior’s J’adore is the perfect fragrance for women to feel and smell like a Queen alongside their King.

      It has a wonderful combination of fruity and floral notes that balance out the more spicy scent of Dior Eau de Sauvage, that has more pepper, patchouli, geranium and lavender notes.

      Appreciate your comment, thanks for reading!
