The Sicilian Lace Bronzer
and Lipgloss and Nail Varnish in nude and rose shades
with ultra shining pigments.

The Formula of the new Intenseyes mascara 
which is the hero of the Lace Collection includes Ultramarine 
pigments help maximize the density of colour
 offering an amazing, deep black effect and a
 specially designed application brush separates 
colour for irresistible, perfectly coated lashes.

Developed in collaboration with the brand’s creative advisor 
Pat McGrath, Intenseyes’ inky black volumizing formula
gives a multi-dimensional look,
 with volume and separation that allows lashes to stand out. 
The long-lasting and
smudge-proof formula is adaptable thanks to a silky, 
luxuriant texture and flexible polymers.

Application Tips
Inteseyes new mascara creates limitless beauty and depth.
'Apply one coat for a groomed finish during the day or 
add lavish layers at night for intense drama' says Pat McGrath
'Each stroke of the brush works colour along the lash line 
for a multi dimensional high volume look; the result in remarkable, 
the precision brush enables you to build colour to extreme effect' 
Intensity meets expert precision for a look that is powerful and virtually perfect 
– the epitome of luxurious Italian Sensuality

'The intensity of Emotion that Monica can convey 
with a look is remarkable. The story she tells with her eyes 
is the story that's in her heart' says Stefano Gabbana. 
"Why the eyes?" Says Domenico Dolce: 
" The eyes are a channel to the heart and soul"

“Monica perfectly embodies the intricate beauty of lace; 
there’s a sense of total refinement about her yet
she possesses a remarkable intensity of character. 
She is enigmatic and alluring in equal measure,”
says Stefano Gabbana.

The renowned photographers duo Mert and Marcus 
 have interpreted the intensity of the new mascara 
in the advertising campaign featuring 
Italian film star Monica Bellucci who says

“Working with Mert and Marcus has been amazing. 
They are so talented and extremely professional”

All the products are packaged with a
 delicate shiny black lace pattern on a matte background which reminds
us of the lace which has been an enduring inspiration 
to Dolce and Gabbana and a recurrent theme in many of their Shows

Floris Royal Arms Diamond Edition to Celebrate the Queen's Jubilee! Xx

To celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, 
Floris the most traditional and Beautiful 
of London's Perfume Houses, indeed
the sole Perfumers by Appointment to 
Her Majesty The Queen Elizabeth II
has brought to light their original ‘Royal Arms’ 
recipe and created an adaptation of this special perfume.

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
