British niche house Floris has launched Sirena and Mahon Leather, two new fragrances inspired by the island of Minorca:
Sirena (shown) ~ "Sirena is a sparkling floral marine fragrance with the freshness of a sea breeze introducing the soft floral heart of oleander, peony and rose with summer berries on a bed of musks and sandalwood...Minorca, the birthplace of Juan Famenias Floris and home of the bronze mermaid of Mahon, was the inspiration for this creation. The scent captures the spirit and warmth of this sun kissed Mediterranean island and its rich flora lingering on a gentle sea breeze. A distillation of summer memories."
Mahon Leather ~ "Inspired by Minorca the theme combines the scent of the warm liqueur Calent, an infusion of wine and spices dating back to ancient times, paired with the exhilarating aroma of leather tack worn by the Minorcan Horse, symbolic of most cultural celebrations and fiestas on the island. Mahon Leather is a distillation of the tradition, soul and artistry of the birthplace of Juan Famenias Floris...Mahon Leather is inspired by Minorca, with the key notes of leather and saffron woven into the elegant heart of vetiver, underscored by deep woods and amber."
Floris Sirena and Mahon Leather are £90 each for 100 ml Eau de Parfum.
