Have you ever wondered where the name “Florida Water” came from?  Having a Florida shop, we get asked this question a lot!

Florida Water is a type of cologne or perfume water that has been popular since the 19th century. It was originally created by the New York City perfumers Murray and Lanman in 1808, and was inspired by the Fountain of Youth, which according to lore existed in the Spanish colony of Florida, in the area of modern day St. Augustine! Hence the name,  “Florida Water”.

Murray and Lanman’s Florida Water was originally advertised as a cure-all for a variety of ailments, but it found its popularity as a fragrance.

Over the years, Florida Water has become a staple in many different cultures and traditions, and is often used in spiritual practices such as meditation and energy healing. It is also used as a cleansing agent, and is believed to have purifying properties that can help to remove negative energy and promote positive energy flow.

Today, Florida Water is still produced by a number of different companies, but the most popularly sold version by Murray and Lanman still uses the original 1808 formula, and the current label is also a slightly modified version of the 1808 original.
