Floris, the British firm with the nostalgic appeal, is issuing two new fragrances paying homage to the roots of the founder of the company Juan Famenias Floris in Minorca in 1730: Sirena and Mahon Leather, both in Eau de Parfum concentration.
Sirena, a feminine woody floral musk, is a tribute to Minorca, the island in the western Mediterranean basking in the sun. The freshness of the sea permeats the heart of regional floral notes (such as oleander), while the base is woody and lightly musky.
Notes for Floris Sirena:
Top: Bergamot, jasmine, sea accord, pink pepper
Heart: Oleander, peony, rose, fruity accents
Base: Musk, Sandalwood
Mahon Leather takes its name from the capital of Minorca, Mahon. This masculine woody-spicy-leather fragrance is based around a heart of leather notes, infused with the liquor note of Calent (a preparation made of pine), the rooty-grassy feel of vetiver and the warmth of amber.
Notes for Floris Mahon Leather:
Top: Hesperides, jasmine
Heart: Iris, leather, saffron, vetiver
Base: Amber, labdanum, musk, patchouli, sandalwood, tonka bean.
