Stephanotis dates back to the earlier days of Floris. Originally composed in 1816 by James Floris, son of the founder Juan Famenias Floris, it was conceived because of the many society weddings taking place in the local area in St. James. Created as a bridal perfume for the high society weddings that often took place at the magnificent St. James’s church, built by Christopher Wren in 1684 and located opposite 89 Jermyn Street. Stephanotis soon became an established favourite effortlessly worn by brides of the day.

Traditionally flowers used in the bridal bouquet were assigned meanings - Stephanotis signifies happiness in marriage. Stephanotis draws inspiration from the Stephanotis flower, also known as the “bridal veil” flower. The fragrance uses oil from the “Madagascan Jasmine”, a flower which symbolises “happiness in marriage”, a delicate beauty and sweet fragrance that embodies love, purity, and devotion.

In the Victorian language of flowers, Stephanotis is the symbol of marital happiness, hence the nickname ‘wedding flower’. In modern flower symbolism Stephanotis represents ‘good fortune’ and ‘the longing to travel’.

Stephanotis Eau de Parfum, opens with a vibrant freshness of orange blossom, petitgrain, and a touch of green galbanum note. The heart notes of spicy carnation, aromatic coriander, delicate stephanotis, and intoxicating jasmine create a floral symphony that captivates the senses with its elegance and allure. A velvety embrace of musk, the soft powdery notes and the soothing essence of sandalwood in the base gracefully concludes this fragrance, leaving a long-lasting warmth and sophistication.

Exhilarating notes of orange blossom enlivened with the soft spiciness of carnation contrasted with a green lily of the valley accord are evocative of the intensely fragrant stephanotis blossom. The floral heart, sustained by jasmine and coriander, leads to the base notes of sandalwood and musk.

The perfect accompaniment to the modern-day bride, bringing an elegant and traditional energy to a contemporary wedding. Bring luck, and joyous exotic sweetness of Madagascan Jasmine and British heritage to your special day.
