May 14, 2012

To celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, Floris has brought to light their original ‘Royal Arms’ recipe and created an adaptation of this special perfume, which has then been hand poured into just six antique bottles.

In April 1926 a perfume was created in Jermyn Street, London by the Floris family to celebrate the birth of King George V’s first grandchild, Elizabeth. The fragrance was named ‘Royal Arms’.

In 1952 Great Britain saw the coronation of this grandchild as Her Majesty The Queen Elizabeth II took her place at the throne. Now, as sole Perfumers by Appointment to Her Majesty The Queen Elizabeth II, this historic year of 2012 presents Floris with the opportunity to mark a momentous occasion.

To celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, Floris has brought to light the original ‘Royal Arms’ recipe and created an adaptation of this special perfume, which has then been 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.

Perfume is the ultimate expression of a fragrance. Precious blended oils impart the most intimate character of the fragrance to the wearer.

The crystal bottle, dating back to the early 1900s is a classic and rare dressing table piece, each one of very few remaining in the Floris collection. The bottle is dressed simply 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’.
