The first Royal Warrant granted to J.Floris Ltd was in 1820 as ‘Smooth Pointed Comb-makers‘ to the then newly appointed King George IV. Today this first Royal warrant is still on display at 89 Jermyn Street together with no less than sixteen others. Ever since that first auspicious day Floris has always held at least one Royal Warrant, and today holds two.

In the 18th and 19th centuries,  the Floris ledgers of this period detail accounts held by an incredible array of public figures, gentry and includes virtually every European Royal house.

Bouquet de La Reine – The Queen’s Bouquet – first appeared in the Floris repertoire in 1860. A contemporary floral and fruity adaptation was created  to celebrate the Golden Jubilee of Her Majesty The Queen Elizabeth II and is available today.
