A Rose for… you? 100 hand-poured, personalised bottles for Valentine's – by request at Floris

After visiting the rose fields of Morocco, Edward Bodenham – director of Floris, and continuing the tradition of perfumery in their presigious family history – became obsessed with the idea of re-interpreting this Queen of flowers. Exploring what has tended to be seen as a ‘classic’ (and therefore trifle old-fashioned) note in perfumery, and looking at ways of marrying the intoxicatingly exotic warmth with the elegant beauty, the result is a stunning ambrée version of rose – a contemporary twist on the dusty, fustiness we are sometimes still guilty of associating it with.
Floris say: ‘Contemporary and dark, “A Rose for …” has a confident, complex profile that places the rose with notes of spice, orris and woods, that take the wearer on an altogether diverse journey of powerful romance. The main character of the fragrance is carried in the heart where the floral balance of red roses is delicately wrapped in incense, oud and orris. Characteristic warm woody notes of sandalwood, cedarwood and amber in the base give the fragrance strength, refinement and depth.’
Strictly imited to 100 bottles only, they will be hand-poured at 89 Jermyn Street and sold exclusively in store and at online, every single bottle being named by hand as a final extra-special flourish. Surely the ultimate Valentine’s gift, how fabulously romantic it is to have personalised bottles!
