French master perfumer Christian Louis, one of only 27 with this title in the world, created the Viva Florida Perfumes to commemorate the 500th anniversary of the State of Florida.
"I tried to create a perfume that leaves a memory of Florida," Louis says.
Louis has been dubbed "The Mozart of Perfumes" and follows the tradition of the 19th century perfumeries. All of his perfumes are created with a minimum of 80% natural essential oils.
Two fragrances: Florida and Florida by Night.
The daytime is a fresh citrus unisex scent while the nighttime is a sultry spicy scent for women. Certain essential oils found in these perfumes have never before been combined into one perfume; every time we wear this remarkable scent, Florida will be a part of us.
The bottles are designed by the prominent artist Bashmakoff, who has established his reputation of creating luxury bottles for the biggest perfume houses in the world. The bottles display children’s drawings of scenes from the Sunshine State. The pearly glass pays homage to the state’s history of space exploration.
