Have you ever wondered what the Queen smells like? Well, if that thought has long plagued you, you can now get a whiff of Her Majesty's royal scent at Madame Tussauds Blackpool.

The Northern attraction has launched a brand-new wax figure of Queen Elizabeth II, and it is accompanied by a very regal aroma to truly make a visit a more immersive experience.

The fragrance is based on flowers which are important to the Queen and her history.

AromaPrime, which creates aromas for historic palaces and attractions, is responsible for the scent, which has been named Palace Breeze.

A dominant note is lily of the valley, which was an important feature in Queen Elizabeth's coronation bouquet, as well as being one of her favourite flowers.

Other ingredients include hints of azaleas and even the Tudor rose.

The purpose of diffusing this elegant air is for guests to feel as if they really have just stepped into Buckingham Palace, and that they are in the presence of royalty.

Speaking of the regal scent, Liam R. Findlay, Scent Consultant at AromaPrime, said: "This is a soft, sweet and dazzling aroma, inspired by the elegance of Buckingham Palace and Her Majesty the Queen.

"Our scent receptors are connected to the part of the brain which processes emotions; we designed this scent so that when guests take a sniff, they will feel relaxed, as if standing in a beautiful Royal palace.

"Because of how our minds remember scents, the inclusion of a scent with the Queen will mean guests may well remember this special meeting for decades to come, just like a smell can take you straight back to your childhood!"

This isn't the first time Madame Tussauds Blackpool have dabbled in scent. Back in June, YouTuber Dan TDM's figure was also launched, alongside a custom aroma named Eau de Gamer.

Following the success of Eau de Gamer, the talented team at Madame Tussauds Blackpool decided to turn their attention on creating a fragrance for the Queen's new figure.

Stuart Jarman, General Manager at Madame Tussauds Blackpool, said of the new addition: "Scent takes the experience of meeting a famous figure to a whole new level of realism, and we are excited to include this sophisticated technique at our attraction."

Well, there you have it.
