The president and first lady might as well be American royalty, and Teddy Roosevelt's lovely first wife, Alice, was responsible for her own unique brand of nuptial perfumery. Instead of a wedding fragrance, though, her famed scent came from a honeymoon.
While she and Teddy were making their way across Europe on a grand romantic tour, Alice became enchanted by the headily scented Bulgarian roses she encountered, and asked the Creed perfume house to create a special honeymoon fragrance from them. The result was Creed's Fleur de Thé Rose Bulgare ($365), which is still sold today.
