Royal Doulton (Designer)
The Royal Doulton fragrance house was introduced in 1998. The brand had earned a prestigious reputation due to its fine china and high-end collectibles, and it wanted to make a fragrance that embodied its prestige and history.
The company has humble roots dating back to 1815, when it was known as Doulton and Watts. By the end of 19th century, Doulton had grown from a single shop to many retail establishments and factories. In 1901, Doulton was given permission from the crown to use the word "Royal" as part of the company name — a sign of prestige and quality. Through the 19th and 20th centuries, Doulton branched out into making pipes, electrical insulators and other industrial products to keep up with the times and demand. It wasn't until the tail end of the 20th century that Royal Doulton began creating a fragrance.
In 1998, the fragrance house's first fragrance, Doulton, was released. Although Royal Doulton had been working with German designer Dragoco, it was Patricia Bilodeau who became the perfumer behind this first fragrance. The fragrance combines light scents of melon, plum, peach and pear, with the floral aroma of lily. The scent is meant to evoke the same feelings of prestige that are associated with the brand's hallmark classic British high-society style.
Since its introduction, Doulton has been the mainstay of the Royal Doulton fragrance house and has enjoyed favorable reviews.
