As a distributor, we strive to offer our partners the best range of brands for them to have in the stores and boutiques. Floris of London is one of the most prestigious brands we distribute.
Floris is the oldest English retailer of fragrance and toiletries and is still family owned and run today by the 8th and 9th generation of the family.
Floris was founded in 1730 by Juan Famenias Floris, who arrived in England from his native island of Menorca to seek his fortune. Shortly after his arrival, in 1730, he secured premises in Jermyn Street, in the elegant quarter of London’s St. James’s. Juan Famenias Floris initially set up business as a barber and comb-maker, however, he soon missed the aromas and sensations of his Mediterranean youth.
The first Royal Warrant granted to J. Floris Ltd was in 1820 as ‘Smooth Pointed Comb-makers’ to the then King George IV soon after his accession. Today this first Royal warrant is still on display at 89 Jermyn Street together with no less than 19 others. Floris holds two today: Perfumers to HM The Queen Elizabeth II and Manufacturers of Toilet Preparations to HRH The Prince of Wales.
