Classic scents with the royal stamp of approval.

Royals have been known to stick to their favorites. In fact, they've awarded those who have supplied goods and services to them with a royal warrant of appointment. Through time, these have included nothing but the finest manufacturers of clothes, cars, jewelry, and more. Perfumes, of course, are no different.

As public figures, royals have been known to have their own signature scents. The likes of Marie Antoinette's and Grace Kelly's preferences have been recorded in history, but what about the kings and princes of the world? Below, take a look at the scents that these noblemen like to spritz.
