Since opening in 1730, Floris has provided fragrance, fine toiletries and accessories to an incredibly loyal customer base. The Floris archives hold reams of treasured letters from customers detailing their preferences and their thanks, examples include:
Florence Nightingale: 25th July 1863 - thanking Mr.Floris for his 'sweet-smelling nosegay' and giving news of the Army's sickness record in India.
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.
Floris is even a fictional character's choice! Ian Fleming's James Bond always wore Floris No.89. Also, Al Pacino's character in Scent of a Woman famously declared he knew the woman in his 'sights' (sic) was wearing a Floris fragrance.
