Fumée De Jasmin Eau De Parfum, floral woody fragrance by Floris London

floris-fumee-de-jasmine-eau-de-parfum-with-box

This new limited edition eau de parfum envisions the cavernous space, imbued by scent filling the air and the delicately smoky environment, of our original perfume workshop. It was this area, where for over two centuries until the end of the 1970s, all Floris fragrance was created and poured. The workshop, two floors below the original shop on Jermyn Street, is a vaulted cellar the family lovingly refer to as the ‘mine’ due to the long periods of time spent day after day, crafting their perfumes and experimenting with new ingredients in this subterranean studio. Fumée de Jasmin, a masculine woody floral fragrance, takes inspiration from a day imagined in the Floris ‘mine’ in the 19th century, with swathes of individual fragrance oils and finished compositions that would have been present in this creative space. Batches of blended floral scents built up over the previous century, merging with hints of the earthy Victorian brickwork arches, and rich Spanish mahogany fittings. The new fragrance is borne of a simple accord between jasmine and cedarwood, the core of this story. The coming together of two key ingredients imagined at the end of a day, after the blending of a batch of Night Scented Jasmine by our ancestors, combining with the smoking stove, to warm the air. The jasmine and cedar wood accord combine with other scents that would be in the air at the time, in particular a quintessential English ingredient, lavender which adds a freshness to the top notes, whilst resins of middle eastern woods, and exotic nuances of black pepper and tobacco all play a part. The subtle smokiness has been imagined through the inclusion of a carnation note in the heart of the fragrance.

Referring to our original recipe books from the period the early 19th century, we found them to be dominated first and foremost by flowers as our family were attempting to recreate the wonderful fragrance of nature. In February 2015 we re-opened the ‘mine’ for exploration and during that time came across a pallet of old ingredient bottles from as far back as the early 20th century. One such bottle that struck us was a beautiful cask of Jasmine that after all this time and decades of dust still held onto its clearly defined scent. These items are now on display to the public in the museum area at the rear of the 89 Jermyn Street store.

Top Note: Lavender, Bergamot
Heart: Jasmine, Carnation, Black Pepper
Base: Cedarwood, Oriental Resins, Woody Amber Notes, Vanilla, Javawood, Tobacco

Floris London, eau de parfum Jermyn Street citrus green

August 5, 2015 Leave a comment

floris-jermyn-street-eau-de-parfum-with-box

Inspired by what has been the backbone of the family business for nearly 300 years in the unique area of London that is St James’s and our home at 89 Jermyn Street, this fragrance, like its inspiration has the feel of refined elegance, understated class and style. Drawing on notes of gin with a splash of lemon, an initial burst of citrus and green notes have been blended with the theme of vetiver. The vetiver runs through the fragrance from its introduction to the base and is supported in the heart, accompanied by juniper with a contemporary twist of coriander, a subtle complement in gin creation. The fragrance also draws inspiration from the London plane trees which proudly still stand in front of the shop today, and the fresh scent of fine crisp cotton found within the renowned shirtmakers residing in the iconic location named after Henry Jermyn in 1664.

Jermyn Street in 1730 was a fashionable world of enterprise, excitement and migration that brought with it knowledge and opportunity. From our shop on Jermyn Street in St James’s, Edward Bodenham was reminded of his childhood when a delivery of fragrance was dropped and spilt outside the Floris doorway, and for days the street outside was filled with the scent of perfume essence.
On his first visits to the shop as a child, fragrance was still created in the ‘mine’ beneath, perfuming the street with a continuous blend of the scents being poured below, and therefore the ‘Jermyn Street’ Eau de Parfum was born out of the desire to celebrate our home at No 89.

Top Notes: Bergamot, Mandarin, Green Vetiver, Violet
Heart Notes: Coriander, Vetiver, Armoise, Juniper Berry
Base Notes: Amber, Cedarwood, Musk, Vetiver

For Him & Her –  100ml   €174

Inspired by what has been backbone of the family business for 284 years – London and our home at 89 Jermyn Street. This fragrance, like its inspiration has the feel of refined elegance, understated class and style. We’ve drawn in our take on notes of gin and the old copper stills, with a splash of lemon. An initial burst of citrus and green notes have been blended with the abiding masculine theme of vetiver. The vetiver which flows through the fragrance from its introduction to the base and is supported in the heart, where you will find juniper with a contemporary twist of coriander, a subtle compliment in gin creation. The fragrance brings together the London plane – London’s most common tree & those that still stand around the store today, and the fresh, crisp cotton of its renowned shirt makers all beginning with Henry Jermyn. The fragrance is therefore completed with a crisp accord of amber, cedar wood and musk creating the essence of a crisp cotton shirt and the stoic reliance of the London plane.

Floris London Amaryllis, nuova fragranza ispirata al fiore amarillide d’estate

Floris London, dopo la Madonna della Mandorla, propone la nuova fragranza Amaryllis basata su un concetto prettamente romantico. Il nome deriva dal greco ἀμαρύσσω, che significa “brillare”, e si pone un riferimento alla pastorale di Virgilio, la Prima Egloga delle Bucoliche. Il sorprendente Amarillide d’estate (Amaryllis Beladonna) é un bellissimo fiore leggendario color rosso cremisi, il quale ha rubato il colore profondo dei suoi petali vellutati al sangue stillato dal cuore di una giovane ninfa, da cui prende il suo appellativo, in seguito a una romantica storia d’amore non corrisposto. Il fiore simboleggia l’orgoglio, la determinazione e la bellezza radiosa.

Amaryllis è una fragranza orientale con un cuore speziato vibrante di giglio, incenso e mirra con tuberosa e ylang ylang attenuato dai caldi toni marini. Patchouli, eliotropio e caramello per infondere dolcezza, non che una sottile profondità per l’accordo di base. La fragranza conserva un piccante aroma ambrato floreale e si ispira al tema romantico rurale concentrato sulla connotazione botanica del giglio belladonna.

Note della fragranza

Note di testa: bergamotto, garofano, accordo marino

Note di cuore: incenso, amarilli, mirto, tuberosa, ylang ylang

Nota di fondo: caramello, eliotropio, patchouli, muschio, fava tonka, vaniglia
