Floris, which happens to be one of the oldest perfume houses in London, had created a perfume named “Royal Arms” in April 1926 to celebrate the birth of King George V’s first grandchild, Elizabeth. After nearly 86 years, Floris has brought to light the original “Royal Arms” recipe and created an adaptation of this special perfume, in the event of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. The Royal Arms Diamond Edition perfume housed in a beautiful crystal bottle dating back to the early 1900’s is a classic and rare dressing table piece. The bottle dons a 50 point Fairtrade white diamond, hand-set by a London jeweller and suspended on a delicate chain. The 18-carat solid gold decoration is finished with a hallmarked charm engraved “Royal Arms”.
The Royal Arms Diamond Edition is 60 ml of pure perfume worth £15,000 ($23,552), available exclusively from the Jermyn Street Shop. The predominant fragrance is rose essence, balanced in a bouquet of jasmine, iris with ylang ylang and hints of sweet violet. For those who find the Diamond Edition to be out of their league, can cheer as the Royal Arms eau de parfum 100ml is on the loose for £99 ($156) at Floris.
