On her wedding day she wore Quelques Fleurs, a floral bouquet of tuberose, jasmine and rose, designed by classic Parisian perfume house, Houbigant in 1912. In his book A Royal Duty her butler Paul Burrell mentions 24 Faubourg by Hermes as Princess Diana's favorite perfume. To be exact, the complete list of her favorite perfumes does not exist.
