The company say:
The symbol of the city of Florence is the Lilly: "il Giglio", which grows spontaneously in the valley of the Arno river and in the hills around the city. It is in reality Iris. From its dried roots is extracted the most expensive of all perfumery materials, the concrete and the absolute of “Orris”. Worth four times its weight in gold. A blend of “Orris” absolute and concrete is the heart of “ll Giglio di Firenze”. The Ambergris, Frangipani and Mimosa join in, but never challenge the soul of Iris, which remains the main theme for the perfume of Florence.
