End the celebrations in a fragrant fashion
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’.

To celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, Floris has brought to light the original ‘Royal Arms’ recipe and created an adaptation of this special perfume.
