Description

Vibrant notes of effervescent bergamot and zesty green mandarin with herbal hints of basil, spearmint and spice.

 

With a warm, powerful heart of cypress and jasmine, this bold unisex Eau de Parfum contains base notes of cedarwood, moss and musk with amber to create longevity and a woody undertone, which develops early and sustains the fragrance.


1962 Eau de Parfum is a fragrance of unbridled affection to an era of love, modernism and evolution. In the summer of 1962, music, art and colour had lifed Soho into a world of its own, where coffee bars and rock clubs held court. Visiting London for the first time in 1962, the smells of spices, herbs and fruits welcomed your arrival into the city's bohemian quarter.


South of Carnaby Street, Soho - Summer 1962. 'A gentle touch of effortless affection, a memory of being in love and holding the future in our hands'.

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.To develop the fragrances, Floris curated true life stories of those who lived through these eras, from celebrities to past and present Floris customers. Those treasured memories of London life were fed to the perfumery team as they created the fragrances and were published through a series of photo journals and films.
