The memory and memories of a great journey. The Floris family created the Bergamotto di Positano fragrance in 2015 as a tribute to Charles Joseph Pagliano, who in the early 19th century left his small fishing village on the Amalfi coast to travel to England and marry his fiancÃ©e Maria Floris. Maria was a key member of the perfume house, and lived and worked for many years in the family business at No. 89 Jermyn Street. The breathtaking spectacle of the Amalfi Coast brings us closer to the real, tangible and intense soul of the Mediterranean. It is this beauty that Charles left behind to make his fortune in England. He never returned to Positano. His portrait together with Maria still stands inside the mahogany cabinets of 89 Jermyn St. The perfume wants to capture what he thought, about his home, about the longing for the Mediterranean Sea.
Floris, family of British perfumers since 1730
The Spaniard Juan Famenias Floris left Menorca for Montpellier (France), the Mecca of perfume in the 18th century, to learn the secrets of creating fragrances. From there, he embarked on his great adventure to London, buying 89 Jermyn Street, where he set up his barbershop and comb manufacturing business in 1730. Juan Floris, nostalgic for the aromas of his home in Menorca, also began to recreate these fragrances in the back room of No. 89, mixing essential oils as he had learned in Montpellier. The blend of ingredients, imported from Europe, was made individually for each client and the formulas were recorded so that they could be reproduced according to their needs. These few fragrances have remained at the heart of Floris to this day as part of the Classic Collection.
With John Floris' entrepreneurial spirit - in 1730 perfumes were a real novelty and Jermyn Street was the epicenter of the gentry in London - and with his innovative vision when it came to creating personalized fragrances, the barbershop was transformed into an elegant space selling eau de toilette and exclusive accessories such as handmade combs imported from Menorca, shaving brushes, hat pins or toothbrushes.
Floris turned 285 years old in 2015. It is the oldest independent British perfumery family in the world and the only perfume house appointed to the Queen. The John Floris family is currently in its eighth and ninth generation. They run the business proudly and on the same premises at 89 Jermyn Street, employing their knowledge and building on the heritage of the art of fragrance from generation to generation, creating exquisite perfumes that stand the test of time and body care products.
