Floris, Queen of Scents

  • by arobis

Perfumers by Royal Appointment to Her Majesty The Queen, Floris are celebrating this years Diamond Jubilee by reinventing the original ‘Royal Arms’ perfume.

‘Royal Arms’ perfume was originally created by the Floris family in 1926 to celebrate the birth of King George V’s first grandchild, Elizabeth. This year as Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II celebrates 6o years on the throne, Floris recreates that special scent, hand poured into just six antique bottles.

The heart of this beautifully poised floral fragrance comes from the queen of flowers, the rose. Rose essence is balanced in a bouquet of jasmine, iris with ylang ylang and hints of sweet violet. Bergamot and lemon lift the heart of the perfume which is warmed by a nostalgic powdery base of amber, musk, patchouli and vanilla.

The antique crystal bottle, dating back to the early 1900s is a classic and rare dressing table piece, each one of the very few remaining in the Floris collection. The bottle is elegantly dressed with a 50 point Fairtrade white diamond, hand set by a London jeweller. Suspended on a delicate chain, the 18 carat solid gold decoration is finished with a hallmarked charm engraved ‘Royal Arms’.

With just six bottles produced, Floris will present one bottle of this very special perfume to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II as she celebrates her Diamond Jubilee. The perfume which has yet to be released will be available Floris London where just two bottles will be made available for purchase.
