Floris’ new luxury Violet Concentrated Mouthwash: swish isn’t the word.

We all have certain smells and tastes we love. For me it’s the uniquely floral smell and taste of violets. I’ve always loved both. Swizzel’s Parma Violets – a childhood obsession – are still one of my favourite sweets, while violet is one of the key notes in my all-time favourite fragrance, Grey Flannel. So you can imagine my excitement on discovering that Floris are to launch a new violet-flavoured Concentrated Mouthwash.

The last word in luxury when it comes to oral care, the fluoride-free mouthwash was inspired by a recipe found in the Floris archives and features a blend of essential oils which provide an effective anti-bacterial and breath-freshening mouthwash. At £40 it’s a considered purchase for sure but then a little goes a very long way (you add just 5 or 6 drops to a glass of water) and at least you won’t get the horrible ‘ooh-ah, ooh-ah’ mouth burn associated with some cheap washes. Best of all, of course, you get the amazing, unmistakable taste of violets – which beats boring old peppermint anytime. In my book anyway.

Floris Violet Concentrated Mouthwash launches in April, priced £40 for 1oo ml. For more info go to florislondon.com

The new Floris Bergamot & Geranium Scented Candle

floris bergamot and geraniumWhen I first heard about this new candle from Floris I was uncharacteristically excited. The reason for this is that its core essential oils are two of my absolute favourites. I’ve loved the smell of geranium since I was a child and bergamot is one of my favourite citrus scents, richer and more rounded than grapefruit, orange or lemon. The combination of the two is lovely.

I always think with luxury products that it’s the little touches that mater the most and this hand-poured candle features both a snuffing lid (possibly the most useful addition to a scented candle, especially for anyone who values their fingertips) and, handily, a little cork mat so it doesn’t leave marks on your favourite coffee table. It comes in a glamorous gold box too so what’s not to love?

The Floris Bergamot & Geranium Scented Candle is available here. There’s a companion room fragrance too.
