The Woods of Windsor brand dates back to the 18th Century, originating from a small apothecary in Windsor Castle, serving the local people as well as the Royal Family and they’re distinguished guests.

The Woods of Windsor brand encapsulates the nostalgic romanticism, the charm and the wildness of a quintessential English country garden. In 2013 the brand re-launched, complete with fantastic new packaging that captures the natural essence of the brand, the four classic fragrances remain – True Rose, Lily of the Valley, Lavender and White Jasmine but there are now three new contemporary fragrances to sit alongside the traditional ranges – Blue Orchid & Water Lily, Bergamot & Neroli and Cedar Woods.

And why are we telling you all this? Because we now have both the classic and the contemporary ranges in store and online, and we’re very excited! We love both the old and nostalgic collections as well as the refreshingly modern ranges, the mix of old and new is what makes this brand stand out.

'Natural Beauty from the Gardens of England'

Here’s a quick breakdown on what each collection is all about:

True Rose – An elegant rose petal scent combined with crisp green violet leaves with rose Otto and a warm damask rose, creating a brilliantly delicate, English classic.

Lavender – This classic scent combines the fresh scent of the Lavender flower with hints of patchouli, musk and chamomile to create a crisp, aromatic fragrance.

Lily of the Valley – Another classic fragrance combining the elegant scent of Lily of the Valley with a hint of citrus, geranium oil and dewy green leaves, its simplistic scent capturing the delicate beauty of the white bell-like flowers.

White Jasmine – Combining the refined floral heart of Jasmine with the exotic bloom of Ylang Ylang, this is an elegant and sophisticated fresh, floral fragrance.

Blue Orchid & Water Lily – The mango, orange and red currant give it a fresh and fruity scent while the wild water lily, vintage Bluebell and vanilla orchard give it its floral fragrance, combined with cedarwood, mahogany wood and tonka bean to bring in some subtle woody fusions.

Bergamot & Neroli – This is a fresh and revitalising, zest cologne fragrance mixing citrus fruits, bergamot, Neroli and lemon to give it a herbal heart before combining fresh green verbena and rosemary enhanced with wood and musk for a warmer touch.

Cedar Woods – An enlightening fragrance experience combining fruity citrus notes with refreshing and spicy aromatic fougere enhanced with warm hints of patchouli and cedarwood.
