A complex fragrance with enduring appeal and British character that is both fresh and woody. Named after ‘Lotion Elite’ – a Floris after shave cream which first featured in our catalogue in 1851. Elite was initially a slow burner in the Floris range and shows that patience in the art of perfume creation, really does pays off. Maintaining a few loyal followers, as the 1980s progressed, its admirers grew, both at home and across the continent, as exports to Europe increased. Elite has since gone on to become an icon among the Floris signature collection. It has found a second home among devotees across the world and particularly in Italy where the fragrance has gone from strength to strength and continues to maintain its popularity today, 40 years after it was launched.”
