Scents and fragrances from Floris on Jermyn Street.
Fragrances have been sold on Floris' premises on Jermyn Street since the 18th century. Past Floris customers include:
  • Mary Shelley, who whilst abroad sent friends clear instructions on where to purchase her favourite combs: Floris.
  • Beau Brummell, the dandy of his day in the early 19th century, would discuss his current fragrances at length with Mr.Floris.
