Orange and bergamot blended with lavender and neroli give this scent its classical cologne aspect.

Nearly 300 years ago, Juan Famenias Floris created his first fragrance and recorded the formula in a large leather bound book. He continued to craft individual blends for his distinguished customers and with each new fragrance, the original formula was handwritten in this very book. For almost three centuries these recordings, along with the many more that followed, have been meticulously cared for in the perfumery at 89 Jermyn Street and have been handed down through each generation of the Floris family, providing inspiration for the unique Floris fragrances created today.THE PASSION
