Edward Bodenham is the perfumery director and ninth-generation family member of Floris, the family-owned British perfume house, established in London in 1730.
Edward grew up regularly visiting the perfumery to help blend fragrances with his grandfather and father. He would work on the shop floor and in the perfumery on the premises as a young man, later studying as an apprentice to his relatives and to the Floris in-house perfumer.
After spending several years studying the outside world of perfumery, Edward followed in the steps of his forefathers and joined his father at Floris, where for over 25 years he has assisted in running the business. Edward has helped to create fragrances for a new generation of Floris customers, adding to the Floris repertoire of perfume making spanning almost 300 years.
