Floris is the oldest English retailer of fragrance and toiletries and is still family owned and run today by the 8th and 9th generation of the family.

Floris was founded in 1730 by Juan Famenias Floris, who arrived in England from his native island of Menorca to seek his fortune. Shortly after his arrival, in 1730, he secured premises in Jermyn Street in the elegant quarter of London's St. James's. They still occupy the same building where the business started in the 18th century. The mahogany counter still used in the store was purchased directly from the Great Exhibition at the Crystal Palace in Hyde Park in 1851.

The first Royal Warrant granted to J. Floris Ltd was in 1820 to the then King George IV. Today this first Royal warrant is still on display at 89 Jermyn Street together with more than 19 others, among those are the Perfumers to HM The Queen Elizabeth II and Manufacturers of Toilet Preparations to HRH The Prince of Wales.

The Floris archives hold letters from famous customers, including: Winston Churchill, Ernest Hemingway, Marilyn Monroe, Florence Nightingale and Mary Shelley. In fiction Floris was also referenced numerous times. By Ian Fleming's James Bond, who only wore Floris No. 89 and Al Pacino's character in Scent of a Woman famously declared he knew the 'woman in his sights' was wearing Floris fragrance.
