Use our Florida Water to perfume the air, your pillow, yourself... a proprietary blend of citrus, lavender absolute and spices in a tincture of organic lavender flowers.
We aren't talking about the state Florida, but the Latin 'florida': blooming, florid, flowery. Florida Waters were once a staple at every local pharmacy with many creating their own unique blends.
Traditionally a blend of citrus, lavendar and spice, the most recognized brand today is Murray and Lanman, Florida Water is distinctly American cologne branded as the answer to the wildly popular 4711 (the First cologne). The Florida waters of the late 1800s-1900s were used as toilet waters (to scent unfresh waters for bathing) and were consumed as medicinal preparations. The history of the waters in North America is really interesting to follow.
Now found in bodegas, tarot shops, Florida Waters have a life beyond fresh air and perfuming the body. (more about the spiritual side).
The Alchemy Florida Water cologne is inspired by a workshop I took in the spring on the creation of colognes - and the scent was so popular this summer, I made more tinctures and a fresh batch which is ready for use now. External Use Only!
(Tinctured lavender, bergamot, neroli, cedrat, and spices).
