The fragrance was reorchestrated in 1984, and Floris inform us that Edwardian Bouquet is a sumptuous blend of Bergamot, Hyancinth, and Jasmine. A hint of Galbanum blends beautifully with a heart of Orris, Jasmine, and Lily over the exquisite and earthy base of Green Moss, Amber, and Sandalwood. This fragrance exudes classical grandeur and is a truly refined reflection of 1901, the year this perfume was introduced by Floris as a celebration of a new era. The aromatic adornment of choice for the sophisticated London lady, Edwardian Bouquet is a floral eloquence indeed.

Latest Reviews of Edwardian Bouquet
Well crafted from the original recipe.
Not for those who prefer youthful, fruit, sweet or warm.
This is all floral with an emphasis on hyacinth and loads of cool greenery.
Long lasting, especially on clothing.
Like Springtime circa 1901.
Powerful stuff..not for the faint of nose.
Edwardian Bouquet was introduced in 1901 and re-orchestrated in 1984. I am experiencing a bottle of the re-orchestrated edp concentration, which was discontinued in 2010.
This is a sumptuous floral chypre with intense, concentrated oils. The hyacinth, jasmine and lily provide a strong floral presence, which is supported by a very green combination of galbanum and oak moss. The orris provides a dry counterbalance and the amber/sandalwood combination a warm dry down. There is a predominant impression of caraway seed, which Is not listed, but which I also found in Floris' China Rose of 2000 release.
I do not know which audience this was originally intended for, but it strikes me that this is a definitely masculine fragrance, although a sporty feminine nature could get away with wearing this as well.
It is extremely well blended and so rich and deep it gives me the impression of pure parfum.
I was lucky enough to find this online from a seller of vintage scents and it has quickly become one of my favorites to wear for special and formal events. A real winner.
