Description

A sparkling citrus fragrance bringing to mind the elegance, opulence and glamour of the twenties.

 

1927 opens with decadent shimmering aldehydes balanced with a burst of zesty bergamot and hints of mandarin. These top notes are then accompanied by a voluptuous floral heart of violet, ylang ylang, and narcissus with mimosa, all adding depth and complexity. ‘1927’ concludes with the rich, sensual base notes of musk, amber, patchouli and vanilla.

A fragrance bursting with creativity as the jazz age blossomed as an eclectic set of young socialites flourished in an era of irresponsibility and pleasure. Known as the Bright Young Things, an invented generation, of aristocrats, middle class adventurers and bohemian artists who threw off their shackles and indulged in what was created as ‘youth culture’.

Beyond the frivolity and excess of bohemian 1920s, a collective of London artists and social commentators, many who were characterised as part of the set, began turning this era into subject matter.

1927 Eau de Parfum, plays homage to the creatives, artists, playwrights and authors who went beyond the triviality and documented a moment in time.

Following the successful 2016 launch of The Fragrance Journals the series continues with a fragrance exploring London in 1927. An era of fluidity finding resolve again and a social history interspersed with characters defined by their past and the potential of their future.Floris began exploring the artistic works of this era, after uncovering records of many of the key players listed among its archived ledgers. The Fragrance Journals are a series of four unique Eau de Parfums, capturing the heart and soul of London throughout the decades of the 1920s, 1960s, 1970s and 1980s. Each fragrance weaves and knits its way through the fabric of a key moment, district, and culture of the time, bringing out a true reflection of a city which has the ability to both adapt to change, yet remain rooted in its identity. A love letter to London, its social fabric and its people.Edward Bodenham, Perfumery Director of Floris and ninth generation of the family reflects, "As London's West End has been the home of Floris for nearly 300 years, we have witnessed many great moments that have shaped London's cultural history. We found the 20s, 60s, 70s and 80s particularly inspiring because they were so culturally potent. Many of our customers have grown up with Floris in the same way my family and I have grown up with our scents and stories, so it was wonderful to incorporate their stories into the inspiration for the new fragrances."Every fragrance from The Fragrance Journals series has a unique sleeve designed by Darren Hopes, an internationally renowned photo illustrator, taking inspiration from faded memories of the era through the eyes of those who were there.
