Gift Description

Give the woman in your life a perfume tailored entirely to her, formulated at London's top perfumery. Founded in 1730 on Jermyn Street, Floris is Britain's oldest and best-respected perfume retailer. To this day, the flagship Floris store remains where Juan Floris first started the business after arriving from his native Menorca. Hundreds of years of knowledge and expertise have been passed through the company, with his descendants - now in their 8th and 9th generation - still running the shop.

Floris currently holds two royal warrants: one as the only appointed Perfumers to HM The Queen Elizabeth II, and the other as Manufacturers of Toilet Preparations to HRH The Prince of Wales. These sit alongside 15 others from Floris's history, the first awarded in 1820. Other famous customers include Winston Churchill (a Floris customer for over 30 years) and Marilyn Monroe, who had a delivery sent to her at California's Beverly Hills Hotel in 1959.

Ahead of your visit you’ll receive a beautifully presented and bespoke fragrance gift box with a booklet on your upcoming experience. Inside you’ll find a fragrance bottle engraved with the recipients’ initials. Based on the iconic Floris shape, this bottle will carry your unique fragrance. What’s more, you’ll be sent four fragrance samples that offer a chance to test you parfumer ‘nose’. Covering a selection from the Floris fragrance wheel, you’ll get a feel for the scents ahead of your visit.

Your two-hour consultation will begin by choosing a base perfume from Floris' extensive range of fine fragrance bases. You will gradually select your preferred scents from a range presented to you. These new ingredients will be added to the base to create your own personalised fragrance. In addition, your new scent will be added to Floris' private perfume ledger, dating back nearly 300 years. Your name will be forever recorded next to famous Floris clients, and your fragrance recorded for future re-orders.

Once your custom fragrance has been completed, you will receive a 100ml bottle to take home, along with a Certificate of Provenance. Exclusive to TRULY guests, you will also take home a bottle of Floris signature hand treatment cream.

  • Dedicated and Professional Service

    T_Duncan - 12/11/2013

    Wonderful shop with top staff. Lovely to experience customer service as it should be. Awful Fortnums could learn alot from Floris. Hope to be back very soon.

    A Shop with Great Integrit yand History

    Timj - 22/10/2013

    A small and traditional shop with very friendly staff eager to chat. If you're tired of the big perfume departments in the big stores, visit Floris. It's conveniently situated right behind Fortnum & Masons.

  • What A History!

    Samuel - 09/10/2013

    Floris was founded in 1730. That's a long time ago. The company has built its reputation on scent and perfume of the very highest quality. The premises in Jermyn Street are the tourist's delight: traditional, with lots of polished mahogany and brass, and a uniformed gentleman who opens the door for overburdened customers.

    Lovely Personalisation Gift

    Deb - 12/08/2013
