As the fragrance unfolds, notes of hyacinth with its green leafy nuances combined with a touch of bergamot and mandarin introduce the grand floral heart of jasmine, rose and ylang ylang. Patchouli and sandalwood dominate the base which is accented with moss, musks and soft powdery notes.
Edwardian Bouquet was first introduced into the Floris range in 1901 as a celebration of the new era. The fragrance was then reintroduced in 1984 with the rediscovery of the original formula while going through the family archives.
Floris London is the oldest English retailer of fine fragrances. The company was founded is 1730 by Juan Famenias Floris. He 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 three centuries these recordings, along with the many more that followed, have been meticulously cared for in the vaults at 89 Jermyn Street and handed down through each generation of family, providing inspiration for the unique Floris fragrances created today.
