Royal recognition

Floris was founded in 1730 when Juan Floris set out to be a barber and a comb-maker to the fine people of St. James’. In 1820, the establishment was appointed as royal comb maker to King George IV. Today, they enjoy the exclusive privilege of holding a Royal Warrant as Perfumers to HM Queen Elizabeth II.

An assorted collection

Since the first scent was created nearly three centuries ago, the family-run establishment continues to create unique scents for those with distinctive tastes. Many of their famous creations are often limited editions like 280, a fragrance created to commemorate their successful business. Naturally, there were only 280 bottles. They have mixed and matched four essential fragrance families to create an incredible range of perfumes and products for individuals and homes as well as gifts that make ideal souvenirs.
