One day before her 65th wedding anniversary with Prince of Edinburgh, the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) gave to Queen Elizabeth II a unique new fragrance with essences of Commonwealth countries, developed as a gift for her Diamond Jubilee.
The fragrance, called Adamas (means Diamond in Greek), was bottled in a red, gold and pink jar created by the craft workshop Andrew Sanders and David Wallace from recycled glass made in Dartington. The RSC will keep the secret formula and not give the perfume to anyone except the queen.
“The perfume was inspired by the classic fragrances that existed when she was crowned. The sensual flowers were popular at that time, as well as fresh and live components. All this comes together in Adamas, a green floral fragrance with classic style but with a modern twist,” said the creator of the perfume, the British Angela Stavresvka.
