Nearly 300 years ago, Juan Famenias Floris created his first fragrance and recorded the formula in a large leather bound book. He continued to craft individual blends for his distinguished customers and with each new fragrance, the original formula was handwritten in this very book.
For almost three centuries these recordings, along with the many more that followed, have been meticulously cared for in the perfumery at 89 Jermyn Street and have been handed down through each generation of the Floris family, providing inspiration for the unique Floris fragrances created today.
Floris perfumery have always sourced the finest raw materials for their compositions. All of their absolutes and essential oils are sustainably sourced from their extended family of long serving suppliers who strictly monitor the grade of each crop to ensure their upmost quality.
Quietly and meticulously composing a symphony, a perfect balance between art and science. Their elegance is borne from experience not artifice. Made in Britain, Floris perfumery is using the finest essential oils and essences gathered from around the world.
We present you today three amazing perfumes to discover the skill and artistry that goes into the creation of a Floris fragrance. It's a skill that has been passed down for 9 generations!
The freshness of new leather complements the smoky aspects of the oud oil and geranium at the heart.
Leather Oud takes inspiration from when new fragrance oils would be delivered to Floris in small leather cases, adding their scent to the overall aroma of the essences as they were opened. A complex fragrance, glowing modern amber notes complete the harmony adding depth to the woody base accord.
Owing to its precious ingredients, we only blend Leather Oud in small batches. The exclusive fragrance is created with oud oil from a certified sustainable source of agarwood. This oil is among the most expensive in the perfumer’s palette - with deep qualities found in no other oil. It is an opulent, deep sensual note that combines beautifully with rose and sandalwood.
