So fresh, so clean: iconic Floris products to gift this Father’s Day

When Sunday arrives, let the heritage label take care of his pruning needs…

Given the shifts he’s put in over his many years of parenthood, there are few better gifts to give your old man – or the father figure in your life – than a fine suite of grooming goods that’ll soften, smooth and lighten the load off his complexion.

Often, for this specific occasion, we turn to Floris, that most quintessential of British grooming labels, to help us out, especially as the venture has been whipping up premium fragrances, slicks and bathroom cabinet staples for nearly three centuries, a feat that ensures your gift-giving is in sound hands, year after year.

To help steer you in the right direction when it comes to selecting the ideal present, we’ve zeroed-in on the No. 89 Collection, a tightly edited pick of products that’ll cover most of his pruning needs. From famed fragrances to aftershave balms, here’s what we recommend…

No. 89 Eau de Toilette

Bottle of Floris London Eau de Toilette No 89

Known as Cary Grant and Ian Fleming’s spritz of choice, this Eau de Toilette has been Floris’s signature scent for more than 70 years and it sits among the greatest concoctions the industry has seen, thanks to a citrus-focused mix of bergamot, orange and neroli notes. Hints of spicy nutmeg, sandalwood and vetiver add a heavier, more traditional flavour to it all.

No. 89 Moisturising Bath & Shower Gel

Bottle of Floris London Moisturising Bath and Shower Gel No 89

Whether he’s still hitting the nine-to-five with the same rigour as he did in his twenties, or enjoying retirement with a few hours on the fairway, it goes a long way to have a product with which he’s able to scrub off the day’s detritus. This delicate formulation features the signature scent, creates a luscious foam, and, thanks to its incorporation of olive oil, helps hydrate and smooth skin to a marble-like sheen.

No. 89 Shaving Soap & Bowl

Floris London Soap Bar

The time-old tradition of a wet shave offers a moment of respite in a world in constant flux – the lathering of the soap; the slow, smooth strokes of the razor; the deep concentration of it all. The shaving soap here is produced with shea butter, which makes for a creamy, smooth lather, and, ultimately, a silky result. The wooden bowl, formed from renewable materials, is an added benefit.

No. 89 Shaving & Beard Oil

Foam Can of The Gentleman Floris London No 89 Shaving Gel

If he has more of a penchant for oils, then Floris has niftily covered that department, too. A beautiful medley of borage, British blackcurrant and rapeseed oils soften facial hair, allowing the razor to glide with minimal effort, meanwhile sea starwort oil and vitamin E come together to act as a protective balm. It’s equally practical for those with beards, as it can also be used as a conditioner.

No. 89 Aftershave Balm

Bottle of The Gentleman Floris London Aftershave Balm

Cooling and calming, the collection’s Aftershave Balm eschews the use of alcohol, is thick with hops, oat and extracts of willow, and, like the above beard oil, draws upon blackcurrant and rapeseed oils to prevent dryness and irritation. The real draw, however, is the incorporation of menthol and aloe vera, which cool the face and provide a vibrant feel to the complexion.

No. 89 Aftershave

Bottle of Floris London Aftershave No 89

Then, of course, let him tie up his morning grooming routine with a fine finishing touch. The benefits of this aftershave are many – it closes the pores; witch-hazel offers moisturisation; and, of course, it’s laced with the No. 89 scent – and a small dab, applied in downward strokes to the face and neck, sets the right tone for the day.
