Prince Harry’s close friend Nacho Figueras has launched a perfume named after the royal’s hometown while hinting at ‘a brotherhood of kindred spirits’ with the Duke.
The polo player, 42, launched the range of six different perfumes inspired by his travels around the world, including one called ‘Windsor’, which he said he hoped would ‘bring feelings of every kind of paradise.’
Posting on Instagram about the launch, the Argentinian wrote: ‘The locations that inspired this collection evoke sentimental memories of time spent there with my wife Delfina and our children.’
Nacho has played polo alongside Prince Harry, 35, in various matches over the years, and was among the first to meet his son Archie in June, having visited Windsor shortly after his birth.

Sharing the news of the perfume launch online, Nacho wrote: ‘When we began to work on this collection, I knew I wanted this to be a culmination of all my experiences, bringing the feelings and scents from every kind of paradise to people across the globe.
‘I’m looking forward to sharing these fragrances with the world, which allow me to bring my love for my family, polo, fashion and design together with my dedication to philanthropy.’
The box for the ‘Windsor’ perfume also appears to hint at the significance of his relationship with Prince Harry, and bears the words: ‘The brotherhood of kindred spirits.’
The fragrances will see a portion of the sales proceeds donated to Prince Harry’s charity Sentebale.

Nacho, a father-of-four, attended the wedding of Harry and Meghan, and is often pictured posing alongside the Prince at polo matches.
He and his wife Delfina Blaquier were among the first to meet baby Archie, having visited Windsor shortly after his birth.
At the time, the Argentine, who is captain of the royal’s charity polo team, praised Prince Harry as already being an ‘amazing father’.
He told People magazine: ‘He seems to be really, really happy so I’m very happy and excited for him.’

He went on: ‘I’ve been saying this for a long time, he’s a person that loves children.
‘I’ve seen him interact with children for a very long time in all these things that we do in Africa so I’m not surprised he’s an amazing father.’
As well as playing together on the polo field, the pair work closely on Harry’s charity Sentebale.
Prince Harry, set up the organization in 2006 to support orphans and vulnerable children affected by the HIV and AIDS epidemic in Lesotho, Africa.

He continues to play in charity polo matches in support of the organisation since, even travelling overseas to play in a game in Rome two weeks ago.
Nacho has praised Prince Harry widely since the Windsor visit, apparently telling Johnny Hornby, the chairman of Harry’s charity Sentebale, that ‘the Duke couldn’t take his eyes off of him — nor his hands.’
He revealed: ‘The two of them are just in a state of sheer delight over this birth.’
