To celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee,

There are two versions of the 'Royal Arms' Diamond Edition -  
the Eau de Parfum which is part of the Private Collection - £99
and the Perfume, 
which has then been hand poured into just six 
antique bottles each
with a 50 point Fairtrade Diamond -£15,000 



The Royal Arms Diamond Edition -  

 Eau de Parfum £99


Top Notes: Bergamot, Lemon, Violet Leaves 
Heart Notes: Iris, Jasmine, Rose, Ylang Ylang 
Base Notes: Amber, Musk, Patchouli, Vanilla 


In April 1926 a perfume was created in Jermyn Street, 
London by the Floris family to celebrate the birth of 
King George V’s first grandchild, Elizabeth. 
The fragrance was named ‘Royal Arms’. 
In 1952 Great Britain saw the coronation of 
this grandchild as Her Majesty The Queen Elizabeth II 
took her place at the throne.

Now, as sole Perfumers by Appointment to 
Her Majesty The Queen Elizabeth II,
 this historic year of 2012 presents Floris 
with the opportunity to mark a momentous occasion.

The heart of the beautiful 'Royal Arms' 
floral fragrance comes from the queen of flowers, the rose. 
Rose essence is balanced in a bouquet of jasmine,
 iris with ylang ylang and hints of sweet violet. 
Bergamot and lemon lift the heart of the 
perfume which is warmed by a nostalgic 
powdery base of amber, musk, patchouli and vanilla.




This special version of 'Royal Arms'
has then been hand poured into just six antique bottles.

The crystal bottle, dating back to the early 
1900s is a classic and rare dressing table piece, 
each one of very few remaining in the Floris collection. 
The bottle is decorated with a 50 point 
Fairtrade white diamond, hand set by
a London jeweller. 
Suspended on a delicate chain, 
the 18 carat solid gold decoration is finished 
with a hallmarked charm engraved ‘Royal Arms’.


Parfum 60ml £15,000


Until next time J Xx
