Modernity
When it comes to Flori's fragrances, I often hear the statement: it's something for all gentlemen. Grandpa fragrance. I feel too young for that. Andso farso forthwith.

So in London in the headquarter of Floris, in the Jermyn Street 89 mackerel to verify these statements. And spray on some scents. Among other things also No 89, which I have had at home for quite some time and which would indeed also look good on the face of an elderly statesman, because simply classic, period.

Now to Jermyn Street. Claims and go geht´s. And how to get geht´s going? At first fruity, for me surprisingly fruity even. At the same time, a pinch of vetiver comes around the corner and that's exactly what distinguishes Vetiver from so many other fragrances, because with so many perfumers on this planet, Vetiver is only used as a rounding off or additive in the base note (and it usually fits quite well). So here already for the start something new, something different, something extravagant, but without taking possession in any way or becoming too conspicuous.

It also doesn't fit in with the fine surroundings of Jermyn Street, where the sales clerks of the various shirt manufactories look out of their tailor-made suits and shop windows and look out for customers.

Interestingly, this vetiver-like note continues through the heart note and is then more dominant in the base note. While it is difficult for me to perceive the other ingredients in the heart note and to describe them correctly, cedar and amber notes are added to the base note in perfect harmony and interact excellently.

When, where, how do you wear this scent? Tendency rather in spring/summer, certainly more on the male side. A fine office fragrance with which one is perceptibly but at the same time discreetly perfumed. Fits just as well with jeans, sneakers and parka at the weekend shopping. A fragrance that Jermyn Street brings home, not in the dusty form of 25 years ago, when Otto Normalmensch, because of the strict salesman (see above), did not dare to open the door to Turnbull & Asser at all (at that time only Prince Charles, the James Bond performers and various would-be Gordon geckos from the financial mile were part of the clientele), but in a contemporary, contemporary mixture. A fragrance that always fits, because it never provokes, never polarises, but nevertheless retains its own character and thus stylishly accompanies its wearer for a few hours. Sillage moderate (due to the quality of the fragrance I would have wished for more here), as well as the shelf life is definitely upside available.

For me, the fragrance is the modern variant of the No 89, which in direct comparison to it actually looks a bit old-fashioned, without wanting to step on its feet too much. Floris has been able to move with the times, without denying himself and the company's genes, creating a fragrance adequate for the third millennium.
