We are proud to be a privately owned independent family business and through our unique inherent style, character, rooted British artisanal standards compose refined fragrance with family values and reverence for our customers.
Jermyn Street in 1730 was a world of enterprise, excitement and migration that brought with it knowledge and opportunity. Following their marriage, Floris founder Juan Famenias Floris and his wife Elizabeth began selling perfume, combs and shaving products here in the elegant quarter of London’s St James’s .

"We are probably a little biased – this, after all, is our home - but we think 89 Jermyn Street is a rather special place."
To celebrate its restoration in 2017, Floris also unveiled two new projects; first, a newly realised museum space at the back of the shop displaying a collection of Floris archive items, and the second being the Ledger Series, re-releasing eight fragrances from customer ledgers dating back centuries.

THE LEDGER SERIES
8 Exclusive Fragrances
Only available at 89 Jermyn Street, The Ledger Series was a labour of love for the perfumery team. Taking 8 fragrances from the Floris archive that are no longer available, they meticulously studied the original family formula books and gradually recreated them for sale today.
Using these original formulas and working with the best ingredients available, they reinstated these classic scents from the Floris archives. The fragrances created include Rose Geranium, Malmaison Encore, Sandalwood, Vetiver, Red Rose, Islay, English Violet and Stephanotis and were all made to an eau de parfum fragrance concentration level.
The collection of perfumes is exclusively displayed in the family museum at 89 Jermyn Street within a specially built cabinet that holds the scent alongside some of the original bottles and formula books.
These fragrances can be hand-poured on request by the Jermyn Street team.
Step through the secret blue door at the back of 89 Jermyn Street and you enter the realms of the perfumer.
