1805 was originally derived from a formulation known as the “Palmerston Bouquet”, created for Lord Palmerston. The Prime Minister during Queen Victoria’s reign was an avid Truefitt & Hill client, as was the monarch herself. This light, fresh, oceanic fragrance – created in 1999 in homage to that incredible period in British history – has top notes of white melon, bergamot and lemon, combined with a lily, jasmine and rose heart, resting on a base of spicy wood, moss, amber and musk. Face the day in the most refreshing way possible, with a little bit of history in every step.
Presented in a beautifully etched traditional bottle.

The inspiration for this exciting blend was derived from an original formulation dating back to the late 1850s, when Truefitt’s offered a service of making up exclusive fragrances for various Regiments, prominent institutions as well as other persons of eminent status. 1805 was finally launched in 1999, a fragrance commemorating the year in which William Francis Truefitt opened his salon doors for the first time and thus established a business that was successfully to carry on for the next two centuries and beyond.
