Hi Guys, happy Monday!
You’ll probably know by now that I’m crazy about perfume, and there’s nothing more thrilling to a fragrance fanatic like myself than discovering a new brand! Floris London are new to the blog, and new to me, and I’ve been trying out their latest launch, Bergamotto Di Positano this week…
This scent really is perfect for the coming summer, it’s bright and fresh, yet warm with a comforting element that just makes you want to recline in the sunshine with a nice cool drink. Bergamotto Di Positano is in fact a unisex scent, which I love on myself and I think I’d love it equally as much if my husband wore it too – I’ve yet to ask his opinion but I have a feeling he’ll be a fan.
This Eau de Parfum has a wonderfully distinctive citrus note, whilst being neither sweet and feminine, nor masculine in any way, this fragrance perfectly evokes the warmth of a Mediterranean sea breeze, sunshine and clear shimmering water. It’s like a Medeterranean holiday in a bottle! This fragrance is also actually a relaunch from the April 2015 limited edition By Request into the current Private Collection, unsurprisingly due to popular demand.
A bit of background on the fragrance – Bergamotto di Positano was created in homage to Charles Joseph Pagliano, who in the early 19th century left the the small fishing village on the Amalfi coast to travel to England and marry his sweetheart Mary Floris – who was a key member of the Floris family, living and working for many years at the business premises, 89 Jermyn Street.
And some more on the fragrance notes –
Fresh bergamot entwined with mandarin and warm marine notes brings instant refreshment. The heart is a vivacious combination of orange blossom with a hint of vanilla, which lends a smooth character and creaminess to complement the initial sparkle. Base notes of wood, amber, ambrette and ginger provide the fragrance with a mellow warmth, reminiscent of a Mediterranean evening.
For my first experience of Floris London fragrances, I really am beyond impressed. I can’t wait to try out some more of their perfumes now!
Bergamotto Di Positano is £120 for 100ml, and will be available at Floris London from May.
