Description

A vibrant citrus marine fragrance reflecting a journey of discovery across the Ligurian Sea.

 

‘Neroli Voyage’ draws inspiration from the beautifully scented orange blossom trees that grow along the Ligurian coastline of France and Italy, on a voyage of ancestry and scent.


This unisex fragrance opens with a citrus burst of neroli and lemon, complemented by marine notes for an added sea breeze freshness. The dominant neroli accord continues into the heart where it is wrapped in intimate jasmine flower and enlivened by spicy notes of ginger and aromatic fennel seed.


Depth and complexity come from the base which evokes the scent of oak wood, indigenous to the fragrant maquis shrubland of Corsica, and is supported by warm, sensual notes of musk and amber.


Extracted from the blossom of the bitter orange tree, neroli is cherished for its uplifting value, intensified in this fragrance by a spike of lemon and ginger.

Family Anecdotes

FAMILY ANECDOTES

Neroli Voyage' is inspired by an expedition Edward Bodenham, Perfumery Director and Floris family member took, tracing the footsteps of his ancestor, Robert Floris. The Floris family have for generations been in the possession of journals written by Robert Floris while on his travels in the early 19th century. Robert travelled throughout the southern Mediterranean, sourcing ingredients, visiting family and seeking inspiration.The letters are moving anecdotes of the beauty of the journey he took. Inspired, Edward had a desire to walk in the footsteps of Robert to understand better how his letters translated to the landscape and how those same settings could inspire us in the 21st century. One journey saw him travel around the Ligurian Sea coastline from France to Italy. When taking the boat across to Corsica you become aware of the aromatic scent of the island’s maquis shrubland before you arrive. To the locals it’s a smell they associate with coming home. Robert wrote as he left the island.“The vessel creaks, Corsica became a speck, and the higher landscape melted into the clear blue ocean.”

NEROLI VOYAGE

A LIGURIAN VOYAGE

Edward Bodenham recalls:

Following a family holiday a few years ago, I found myself driving through an orange blossom field and being captured by the scent. It's an ingredient I know well and when I came home we began the process of sourcing a neroli for our bespoke service at Jermyn Street. I knew that neroli has been used in a great many of our fragrances over the years, but has never actually been the main hero of one of our scentsExtracted from the bitter orange tree, neroli is predominately a citrus fragranceI started to focus my attention on the Ligurian coastline and sea around south east France and north west Italy. It’s an area known for orange blossom trees but I had a more interesting reason for focusing on this area.For centuries my family has been in possession of letters and journals written by my ancestor Robert Floris written home in the early 1800’s while he extensively travelled across the Mediterranean in in the early 1800s, sourcing ingredients and meeting with suppliers. One journey saw him travel around the Ligurian Sea coastline from France to Italy, from Grasse, via Nice to Antibes, by foot, and then across the sea to the Italian coast passing Corsica.He was often away for months at a time and the letters home to his family are moving anecdotes of the beauty of the journey he took. What I find fascinating about the letters is that his writing is often very English and formal. Very factual, prompt and polite but rarely personal when he recounts the daily journey. However, when he starts to describe the people he meets and the landscape, his language becomes much more poetic. It was these themes of journey, voyage and human connections that became a huge inspiration for this fragrance.' "Wednesday morn 3rd November at half past 6 I was awoke by the servant who told me that the vessel waited for me. We sailed with a fair wind but as soon as we put our noses towards land we found that there was a strong Tramontana. The Mediterranean sailors never speak of a north, south, east or west wind, but a Tramontana, del Mediodia, or Migiorna, levante and Ponienta. Later as we approach Genoa…. the vessel creaks, Corsica became a speck, and the higher landscape melted into the clear blue ocean." - Robert Floris'I was very fortunate to have the amazing opportunity to actually retrace some of places and see the very landscape that he visited as he journeyed along the French and Italian coastline over 200 years ago. When you travel in that area, the landscape around the mainlined and indeed Corsica, is heavily populated with a marquis shrub land. A mixture of low level shrubs, generally on the coastline, condensely packed. It’s an aromatic, woody smell, often because of the oak wood generally found growing within. When taking the boat across to the island, you become very aware of this aromatic scent and I’m told that those local to Corsica associate it with the smell of coming home. We were really keen to capture this in the fragrance. Travel can also be hugely relevant when creating fragrances. We know the importance of scent and memories. How a smell can transport you. When we travel, visiting new places, creating new memories, scent can often play a pivotal role. We speak to customers now, many who we know create or buy new fragrances specifically for when they travel, so they can have a scent that they associate with where they journey. We hope that Neroli Voyage can become part of your future travel memories.'"I hope all in Jermyn St. and the Square are well, remember me to all friends and believe me your affectionate son, Robert Floris.”
