The mellow woody notes are enlivened with a cool citrus twist of bergamot, lemon and orange punctuated with the green resinous notes of cedar leaf and spicy juniper berry. Lavender and fir balsam with a touch of bay are key to the character of the heart and are reinforced by the woody notes of patchouli and vetiver. Mossy notes then play a leading role as the fragrance evolves with amber, musks and a hint of leather in the base.
Introduced in 1979 Elite was named after Lotion Elite – a Floris after shave cream which first featured in our catalog in 1851.
Floris London is the oldest English retailer of fine fragrances. The company was founded is 1730 by Juan Famenias Floris. He created his first fragrance and recorded the formula in a large leather bound book. He continued to craft individual blends for his distinguished customers and with each new fragrance the original formula was handwritten in this very book. For three centuries these recordings, along with the many more that followed, have been meticulously cared for in the vaults at 89 Jermyn Street and handed down through each generation of family, providing inspiration for the unique Floris fragrances created today.
