And so it was that Mr. Gaade, a renowned Bermudian yachtsman and competitor in international races; through vision and tenacity, brought the very first Royall fragrance to market in 1957.
Royall Lyme fragrance is made from the plumpest freshest, native West Indian limes. It is nurtured and washed by pure island rains in a recipe that traces its origins to a very old Caribbean formula obtained from Harbor Islanders. The secret formula of rare essences has a total of 78 ingredients. The resulting Royall Lyme is cool, zestful and refreshing, as perfect for the work place as it is for play.
In 1960, when Royall Lyme was introduced at Brooks Brothers New York, it was an unqualified smash hit. The fragrance is still sold there today. Not long after, Royall Lyme went international to London, Milan, and beyond.
Following Royall Lyme, Mr. Gaade created other fragrances which capture the essence of Bermuda. Royall Spyce, Royall Bay Rhum and Royall Muske. The Royall Mandarin fragrance joined the other successful family scents in 2001 followed by Royall Vetiver in 2006 and finally Royall Rugby in 2011.
A strong and masculine fragrance for the quintessential athlete. Geranium leaves and black currant add warmth and passion. A distinctive fragrance leaving a note of freshness.
