Fragrance for you - The Florida Waters Line

A Brief History of Eau de Cologne

Ministry of Fragrance’s line, created using an eau de cologne concept, is based on the Victorian practice of changing one’s fragrance with one’s clothing…sometimes up to six times a day.

In the 1700s, Eau de Cologne was employed as an “aqua mirabilis” or healing remedy for a variety of health-related complaints. But that particular application of the waters ended in 1810, when Napoleon Bonaparte issued a decree demanding the secret recipes for all medications be revealed.

Not willing to accept the decree, Eau de Cologne manufacturers spun the product a new ‘image’ and offered it instead as a ‘toilette water’ for external use, thereby circumventing the requirement to reveal the recipe. One of the initial companies who made this shift is still in business today: 4711 Genuine Eau de Cologne, located in Cologne, Germany (visit their site at

Consisting of herb and citrus oils, the fragrances were refreshing and uplifting, a property all of these ‘Eau de Colognes’ share.

Another eau de cologne called ‘Hungary Water’ had similar notes and also contained rosemary and mint oils. The original Murray and Lanman ‘Florida Water Cologne’ came into being after 4711, and distinguished itself with the addition of spice notes. It is also still available, now manufactured and distributed by Lanman and Kemp. (Visit

About Our Fragrances

The Ministry Of Fragrance’s ‘Florida Waters’ line is a tribute to these eau de colognes (see History section above), with a separate fragrance built around each of the citrus, herb, and spice notes:

Key Lime Zing is a zesty citrus, and Ministry of Fragrance is unique in this aspect—no one else in the industry uses key lime oil in fragrances!  

Ocean Lavender highlights the herb note using the briskest lavender from a rare, French, high-altitude stock, and adds a breezy ocean note to the blend.

Southern Spice blends spices with green notes, so the fragrance remains fresh but stimulating, and appropriate to wear in a warm weather environment like Florida.

These fragrances are designed to last only a short while, and can be applied often, without fear of being too strong. This is especially appreciated in the workplace. 

Also, the packaging and the scents appeal to men as well as women.  Perfumer Sasha explains, ‘I wanted the bottles, no matter what was in them, to look beautiful just sitting on a counter or bureau.’ As a result, this line is packaged in bottles that have the colorful look of artisan-stained glass. In each design are ingredients of the fragrance, as well as water elements to celebrate Florida.

Last, but certainly not least, Ministry of Fragrance ensures that no animal testing is done with any of its products.

Eau de Cologne Lavish Spray/Splash (4 oz) $55.50

 This generous 4 ounce bottle allows you to spray or splash lavishly! (When using the bottle as a splash, twist the sprayer top until it closes tightly, or else the cologne may evaporate.)

12 Oz Aromatic Reed Diffusers - $39.99

Reed Diffusers are dramatic and elegant, gently diffusing fragrance around the clock. As a fabulous bonus, they last for months, equivalent to 2 or 3 amounts of other typical air fragrance methods like candles and potpourri. Furthermore, reed diffusers are terrific alternatives to candles since there is no flame and no heat needed, making them safe for classrooms, offices, conference rooms, nursing homes, homes, and dorm rooms.

Reed Diffusers Key Lime Zing, Ocean Lavender, and Southern Spice
Key Lime Zing Simmering Oil

Simmering Oil (1 oz) $12.50

Simmer in water on the stove or use in a diffuser to release the wonderful scent. It also comes with a light bulb ring, so you can use the heat of a bulb to diffuse fragrance throughout your home!

Simmering Oil (with light bulb ring):  This scented oil is very versatile. It is a highly concentrated fragrance and will perfume your home efficiently. Note: this oil is not to be worn on the skin.

To use as a simmering oil: Fill a small saucepan about half full of water and place on the stove. Turn the burner setting to simmer. Place several drops of the simmering oil into the water using the dropper cap. As the water heats, the mixture will evaporate, perfuming your home for hours while doing so. This method also puts moisture into the air, adding comfort during the dryer seasons of Fall and Winter. Note: once you use a fragrance oil in a pan, you should never use it again for food—keep this pan only for fragrance simmering.

  • To use with the light bulb ring: With the light turned off, place the ring so the shallow trough faces towards the ceiling. Carefully place several drops of simmering oil into the well using the dropper cap. As the light bulb heats, the oil will evaporate, perfuming your home for hours while doing so. (If any oil spills on the bulb, wipe it off immediately while the lamp is turned off.)
  • To use in a diffuser with a tea light: fill the diffuser’s well with water almost to the top. Place a few drops of simmering oil in the water, and light the tea light. As the water heats, the mixture will evaporate, perfuming your home for hours while doing so. Ensure the mixture in the well does not go dry before the tea light goes out. As with any lit flame, extinguish it before leaving the room.

Caution: Store Simmering Oil bottle upright—if oil comes in contact with the rubber bulb, it may deteriorate and leak. Oil spilled on varnished or painted surfaces, as well as some plastics, may cause damage; wipe any spilled oil immediately from such surfaces. Also, avoid contact with skin or eyes.

Scented Greeting Cards (and Unscented)

Frustrated by not being able to find fragrance-related cards as stationery? We were too, so we tracked down the artist whose hard-to-find perfume designs we admired, and licensed 12 of them from Paula Scaletta.

Each 5x7" card comes with a matching envelope scented in Gardenia Gardens©, a Gardenia-based fragrance created by Sasha, Ministry Of Fragrance's perfumer, and wrapped in a cellophane envelope to protect the cream-colored card and keep the fragrance vibrant.

These cards, illustrated below, are available individually either scented or unscented, and come in sets of 6 as well. The sets are available in 2 styles: Victorian and Modern, both scented and unscented. Scented sets have a great bonus--they come with a 1/8 oz refillable spray of our Gardenia Gardens scent for so you can reapply our gorgeous scent before mailing. This spray has the added bonus of being able to be worn as a fragrance!
