Floris Toiletries

In keeping up to its luxury reputation, complimentary toiletries for hotel residents of Atlantis The Palm are provided by Floris, an English retailer of luxury toiletries and accessories.

Floris was founded in 1730 by Juan Famenias Floris, who arrived in England from his native island of Menorca to seek fortune. Shortly after his arrival, in 1730, he secured premises in Jermyn Street, in the elegant quarter of London's St. James. Juan Famenias Floris initially set up business as a barber and comb-maker, however, he soon missed the aromas and sensations of his Mediterranean youth.

On the tubes are Moisturizing Body Lotion with Jojoba Oil, Enriched Conditioner with Thyme extract, Luxury shampoo, and Bath & Shower Gel with Arnica extract

Since opening in 1730, Floris has provided fragrance, fine toiletries and accessories to an incredibly loyal customer base. The Floris archives hold reams of treasured letters from customers detailing their preferences and their thanks, examples include:

**Florence Nightingale: 25 July 1863 - thanking Mr.Floris for his 'sweet-smelling nosegay' and giving news of the Army's sickness record in India.

**Mary Shelley, who whilst abroad sent friends clear instructions on where to purchase her favourite combs: Floris.

**Beau Brummell, the dandy of his day in the early 19th century, would discuss his current fragrances at length with Mr. Floris

**Floris is even a fictional character's choice. Ian Fleming's James Bond always wore Floris No.89

**Al Pacino's character in Scent of a Woman famously declared he knew the woman in his 'sights' was wearing Floris fragrance.
