Elite Traveler November-December 2017


For perfume lovers LONDON, UK

Of all our senses, smell is the one most associated with memory — how many times have certain scents transported you back to a time or place, or reminded you of a person? Floris London is an expert in this field and has a fully bespoke perfume program so you can bottle your memories and create your own signature scent. As the UK’s oldest perfumery, Floris was founded by Juan Floris in 1730 and is still run by his descendants to this day. During Floris’s three centuries of expert perfume making, it has created scents for Marilyn Monroe, Winston Churchill and Ian Fleming’s James Bond, and holds two royal warrants. Truly Experiences has created a package with Floris that offers you the chance to create your own perfume over a six-month period. Following an initial consultation with ninth-generation descendant Edward Bodenham (also known as the ‘nose of the perfumery’) you’ll establish your perfume profile and create an entirely unique scent that you can then reorder or pass on to future generations — knowing that your perfume is truly one of a kind. It is only right to visit London in March when the blooming spring flowers will inspire budding perfumers. We recommend staying in the nearby Ritz hotel — the Royal Suite is our suite of choice and is as regal as it sounds. Be sure to pop in The Wosley for breakfast and Fortnum & Mason for some retail therapy. $5,771 for bespoke Floris perfume experience, trulyexperiences.com $4,520 per night for the Royal Suite at The Ritz hotel.
