Save it

This St James's perfumery has been stimulating Londoners' olfactory senses for more than 280 years. Founded by Juan and Elizabeth Famenias Floris in 1730, this Jermyn Street site is the Floris's original shop and is still operated by Floris decendents. With a vast heritage that includes customers from Florence Nightingale and Winston Churchill to Marilyn Monroe, the Florises created a special fragrance in 2010 called 280 to celebrate their 280 years of success. Smells good to us.

This shop is utterly gorgeous and I'm grateful to my Dad for asking me to pop in to collect something for him. It must be one of the oldest shops in London and it's like stepping back in history (or into Diagon Alley, if you're more into that sort of thing). 

The smell of the shop is enchanting and every nook and cranny is filled with other things to look at and smell. Definitely pop in if you are walking by.
