Floris perfumier, St Jame’s, London.

Juan Famenias Floris began creating scents for the Royal Family in 1730 after marrying Elizabeth “my English rose” and the company received its first Royal Warrant in 1800 as Smooth Pointed Comb Maker to King George IV. The original warrant can still be seen above the shop.

Today Floris is run by John Bodenham and Chris Marsh, direct descendants of the founder, and it is still the official perfumier to the Queen although Princes Charles, William and Harry all use Floris products.
